Hi Everyone

As sure as night follows day, or Tesco opening another shop six metres away from the shop they opened last month, it's time for another little update of what's in the store at the Rising Sun this weekend.

On Friday, we bring you CLUB VELOCITY

A week earlier than usual, but still another fine selection of beat combos for the delectation of us all courtesy of Velocity HQ:-

DAMIEN A PASSMORE AND THE LOVEABLE FRAUDSTERS
The tallest and biggest cow punks in all the land.  Factt.  They are taller than The Long Tall Texans.

 
BLANK BIBLES
Your fave new band.You just do not know it yet.  Fact!   They reach parts that so many bands never reach.   The powers that be at Velocity HQ are huge fans..  A band you really don't want to miss.
 
LUKE PAULO AND THE GRAPEFRUIT
Fabbo ace Berlin blues via rural Berkshire.  Hooray!

We're open at 8pm, and it'll cost you £5 on the door or £4 in advance from www.wegottickets.co.uk.

On Saturday it's time for FIESTA LATINA

A fun and sociable dance night featuring a mix of Latin dances from tango to meringue, salsa to bachata and all the stops in between (La Rueda is a speciality). Very friendly evening in somewhere that could have been lifted straight out of Cuba. Come and enjoy some hot Latin rhythms.

We'll be open at 9pm and it'll cost you a paltry £6 on the door to get in

Finally on Sunday, we bring you SUNDAY ASSEMBLY

Sunday Assembly Reading is a community group that meets on the last Sunday of each month at the Rising Sun to hear great talks, sing songs, eat cake and celebrate life… it’s a part atheist church, part foot-stomping show.  Each event has a theme with stories, readings and a final address on that topic. No matter what the subject, the goal of The Sunday Assembly is to solace worries, provoke kindness and inject a bit more whizziness into the everyday.  And the best part.... IT’S FREE.

We're open from 11am to 12pm, and everybody's welcome!

That’s everything for another week, just to remind you that we are, as always, at 30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST (If you pop it into your satnav or Google, we shall magically appear!)

Have a nice weekend!
