New Young Pony Club for Skindividual gig

SkindividualA few weeks back we introduced the concept of the Skindividual gig at the end of August. To join the (already great) headliner of Ladyhwake, they’ve announced that New Young Pony Club will also be playing, debuting some new material from their forthcoming second album. To join them, there will also be the opportunity for a young band (aged between 16 and 24) to get their own guestlist and blag a support slot also.

They’ve also extended the closing date until 31st July (next Friday people!) so you still have an opportunity to be at London’s Garage in Islington on Wednesday 26th August

A specially created new networking site, will allow you to grow a guestlist for the gig via your existing profiles on sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Twitter – along with any other ways you can think of. Skindividual members can start a guestlist of your own or join one or more started by their friends.

The ten people with the largest guestlists on July 31st will be invited to submit a short film – taken on a mobile phone, camera or webcam – expressing why their guestlist should win the gig. These films will be judged by a high-profile panel, which includes Jamie Brittain, the 23 year old co-creator of Channel 4’s Skins; Callum Negus-Fancey, the 18 year old entrepreneur and brains behind teen club nights Let’s Go Crazy; and Sam Killcoyne, Founder of the Underage Festival. The one person chosen by the judges will get to take their entire guestlist along with them to the Garage in Islington on Wednesday 26th August.
