BlackLab, adventures in still pictures invited me (and you if you’re so inclined) to Trawling the Visual Wreckage, which they describe as: A night of screenings, socializing, conversations and chats about issues relating to photography, imagery and film in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Meet the city’s thriving community of bloggers and image-makers (if they show up) and participate in a thrilling raffle. The fun takes place at An Outlet (77 Dale Street, Manchester, M1 2HG) on Friday 29 January 2010 from 7.30pm. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I say: “Be there or be square” (and if you are there, buy me a drink).
