The Bearpit has, for too long, been a neglected part of Bristol. In recent years some people have been trying to do something about it and finally there would appear to be some progress.
Bristol City Council recently announced they would be improving it and helping to facilitate the Arts there in various ways.

To celebrate this we’re putting on a Rush-Hour Mash-Up special in The Bearpit on Wednesday 15th featuring DJ Cheeba, Eclectic Method and a wide range of other Creative Commons artists.
It’ll start when it’s dark and finish when we’re done.

Please invite your friends and wrap up warm.
It’s February!

Coming up next from OC in March will be 2 sets in one night in The Cube as part of Bristol Radical Film Festival. After that expect news of a regular slot in Stokes Croft.

Join the grassroots alternative to the Live Earth concerts by andykisaragi

Dear friend

We work for a small environmental non profit in Oxford, England which specialised in public communication about climate change. Although we always welcome initiatives aiming to increase public awareness we don’t think that the Live Earth concerts are doing enough to encourage new songs or support the amazing talent of people who are really trying to say something powerful or orginal. And, to be honest, we’re skeptical of the big rock star approach to big issues.

So we had a brainwave. We thought it would be fun to create a web based parallel concert called Alive Earth for everyone who has something they want to say.
