Brion Gysin's Dreamachine
Am showing one of my videos at this on Saturday if anyone has the money to go, I know I don't. It clashes with Maybach unfortunately.

sounds interesting. i have the olympia mag with the dream machine cutout somewhere i think. will try to come to this if i can.
A group of my friends are going to this and I will go with if I can get the money together. So probably not then.
Don't you get a free ticket if they're showing your thing Sloane?
I know the guy who's putting this on, James his name. He let me try on of his dreamachines once. Can't say it was mind-blowing, but it definitely did something. Not sure if I'll be around to go to the event.
Ah yeah I'll get in free I should think but wouldnt be able to otherwise!
