Putting A Rocket Up Local Arts

Next Friday at The Embassy Wellington band Ebb plan to put the proverbial rocket up the local arts scene with their multimedia extravaganza Plush Bomb... An all night party, in the divine purpose built party palace the Embassy movie theatre.

Plush Bomb features is an extravaganza, not just some bands and DJs playing in a space, the show's creative director Reuben Sutherland is putting together a visual orgy on the big screen to watch, to listen and to dance under. The idea is to provide a total environment for the night, to throw a '"real" party. How many times have you been to a dark dingy club and had an alright night? Well Plush Bomb is a FAB night, dining, drinking and dancing plus a movie... what a great date night!"

Plush Bomb features 70's classic film, Thank God It's Friday starting at 10.30pm... then the crowd will move to a secret dancing gallery in the pit where they can boogie to old school disco and funk from local techno/house music producer and DJ legend Cuffy...

This excitement is all a preview to Ebb's top secret show, and it's a surprise so we can't tell you all, except whisper "top secret" with a smile... we do have a few more details for you to pass on: come early so as you don't miss the movie, be glam and smile, stay late for fat Freddys loungin' session and get your tickets fast.
