You are invited to Rebel Alliance 3!

I'm very happy to invite you to this one: Sometime last year I stumbled across a free-to-download EP from a Cape Town band I'd never heard of. On my first listen of Bateleur's "Mountain" I totally freaked out and proceeded to listen to it again five times over before leaving work, heading to band practice, playing the EP for The Mirrors and seeing them freak out in much the same way I did. Ever since then Bateleur have been the one local band ELM have most desperately wanted to play with live. Now, more than a year down the line, this dream is finally coming true; Bateleur will be heading up to Gauteng to play some shows and celebrate the release of their latest music video. One of these shows just happens to be the next Rebel Alliance. needless to say I can't wait for this night to come around.
Jozi's only music/ animation/ film cross-over night makes it's final appearance of 2011 with Rebel Alliance 3 "Retirement of the Sith". Expect a night of audio and visual thrills featuring:
