Ante Up

Come alive Sydney! We don’t usually read anything other than VNA Magazine, cos we all can’t read good and stuff, but we like Ante Magazine, it has pictures. It’s their Issue 2 Launch tonight Thursday 29/03/12 – 9.30 pm onwards at The Backroom in Syn City.

Plus, they have some of our favourite artists painting, live, with paint. Like Sprinkles. He’s sick. There’s something about Vans (the guys that invented skateboards out of bits of old prams) and Grand Scheme will be there too, doing an installation. Well Dressed Vandals will be suaving up the place and we will be there too with SHDS, kind of doing a reverse Jesus and turning Tiger beer into water.

Like Ante on facewaste if you think they’re any good Ante Magazine.
