Super Warehouse Gaming Party




Joypad presents: Super Warehouse Gaming Party! Extended Play Edition

Here at Joypad we strongly believe in the adage that you either go hard or go home. With that in mind, this month?s #superwarehouse will be a 10 hour gaming/dancing/partying BEHEMOTH of a shindig with DOUBLE THE GAMES and DOUBLE THE TUNAGE. As even the most hardened party animals need refreshment - we?ll be providing barbecued goodness in our courtyard throughout the day.

A special event deserves some very special guests. Keep your eyes peeled for our biggest musical and gaming headliners yet...
SUPER WAREHOUSE GAMING PARTY!" is a party in a warehouse crammed wall to wall with games (and a dance floor). It?s super.

PLAY YOUR FAVOURITE GAMES from our library of legit retro carts (via our live voting system). We have over 600 games across 4 generations of classic consoles - all housed in our beautiful custom made ?Joypods?. Check out 5 unreleased Indie gems from the buzziest devs around and take on the ever looming spectre of 2 player destroyer-of-friendships, "Nidhogg", on a massive projector.

DANCE YOUR BUNS OFF to the best gaming inspired DJs and live chip tune acts around.
TAKE SUP from our fully loaded bar.

All of our equipment is 100% authentic. No emulators, no pirated software, no fakery of any kind! From the consoles, to the controllers, to the sound and pictures from our B&O CRT TVs. This is retro gaming as you remember it (or maybe even better!)

This event is 18+, ID required.

The Dunwells at Leeds




Leeds rock heroes The Dunwells are hitting the road this September for a spectacular 13-date tour.
Live: Dunwells

2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year for The Dunwells, with the upcoming release of their second studio album.

The band have been putting down new tracks with producer Stephen Harris (Kodaline, Kaiser Chiefs, Dave Matthews) since late last year, and are now looking forward to playing a slew of dates both in the US and the UK.

Clearly they lead a rather exciting musical existence - and they've acquired a dedicated fan following along the way.

The Dunwells are brothers Joe and Dave Dunwell, along with cousins Jonny Lamb and Rob Clayton. Having spent their formative years playing around Leeds, and honing their chops in the clubs, their first big break came when they hit the shores of the US in 2011 to perform at the Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, TN.

Their impact was nothing short of astounding, and led to the band being signed to Austin based indie Playing In Traffic. This, in turn, led to a co-deal with the respected sub major Concord Music Group (Paul McCartney, Valerie June, Alison Krauss).

The fairytale continued throughout 2012 and 2013, as The Dunwells' swift rise developed through endless touring, an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and appearances at major festivals in both the US (Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Bunbury) and the UK (Cropredy, HMV's Next Big Thing, The Great Escape).

The Dunwells create a unique blend of emotionally driven, anthemic rock, featuring signature four part harmonies for which they have become known.

Their appeal is widespread, with influences that range from Foy Vance and Crowded House, to Fleet Foxes and Elbow. The band is looking forward to the upcoming release, and sharing new music with their growing legion of fans.

thoughts on
#indieweb
why so little interaction with fed.soc.nets?
clearly there are some similar aims

things they are getting right:

trying to keep it simple - use of microformats (like!) and a focus on public posts and freedom of speech
(compared to the obsession most things seem to have in recent years with user profiles and putting private stuff on websites - thats not what websites are for! - no sales blurb can change that!)

things they are getting VERY wrong:

-too much centralised around twitter (centralisation and dependency on any one service is dangerous)
- asking people to register personal domains to do anything - wtf? - not likely many would bother (pointless if limited only to that)
- expecting people to link all their social profiles - won't suit everyone... needs to be other ways - for a user whether something is public or what is likely to discover it should be flexible and up to the user -
users usually want their public posts discoverable, bit they might think differently about their user profiles and might not want to put links to all of their identities on every profile.
A decision about either should not get in the way of a decision about the other.
- lack of anti-spam measures - not everyone wants to do too much manual moderation - sure in the non-silo world its a cat and mouse game, but it's one we must deal with because turning everything into a silo is not an option!
- not much thought about community sites or anything other than personal single-user sites (similar problem with most fed.soc.nets)

why am I commenting here rather than on their network?
- I would send i there if there was a way to do it - but not going to bother with that personal domain stuff (its not a solution if it can't work for more than one user on a server!)
