Some tickets are still available for Recoil’s film screening at the VERY special venue lined up in Portugal. On Friday 23rd November‘A STRANGE HOUR IN BUDAPEST’ will be presented at the appropriately named Black Box @ Plataforma das Artes in Guimarães, very close to the city of Porto. 
Just a 35 minute drive from Porto, Guimarães is the city chosen as this year’s European Culture Capital. The Recoil event will be an official part of the 2012 Capital of Culture program, jointly promoted by the ECC and included in their ‘Icons’ series, which has already featured the likes of Laurie Anderson and Thurston Moore. 
We can now bring you news of an added after event too. Free to all cinema attendees, the after-party will form part of the 10th anniversary of SYNERGY, a celebration of some of their best dance parties dedicated to rock & electro music. This anniversary party features two special guests - Alan Wilder of course, and  Adolfo Luxúria Canibal from Mão Morta - one of the most important alternative rock bands in Portugal. SYNERGY nights usually attracts up to 1000 people so we expect a great turn out for this special night. Make it a cinema and all-night party double bill, all for only €10!
You can purchase tickets now at : http://www.bilheteiraonline.pt

Be sure to order your tickets as soon as possible as there are not too many left now. 
Kicking off this special evening will be a warm-up live set from AlexFX (Alex Fernandes recently completed an as-yet unreleased remix of Recoil’s ‘Intruders’ by the way), followed by the presentation of the film and as usual, Alan Wilder will be in attendance to host a Talk & Q & A session about the ‘Selected Events’ tour and film project. As well as the Afterparty we will have at the venue a limited amount of deluxe tour editions Blu-rays up for grabs! In addition they can all be individually signed by Alan. See www.store.recoil.co.uk for full product details.
The Plataforma das Artes project involved the transformation of ‘the square’ (a series of older buildings) into a multi-functional space dedicated to arts, culture and social activities. It is an ultra-modern construction boasting several exhibition rooms across 3 floors – including the Black Box : a totally black room prepared for projections and multi-media happenings. It is a stunning space with state-of-the-art equipment as you can see from the photos of the entire complex ( by João Morgado - www.photo.joaomorgado.com ).  The white foyer areas will be set up for the other aspects of the event.

This item has now completely sold out and, at this time, will not be re-stocked.  We had intended to produce more but now that the contents of the stick are in the public domain, predictably enough, the inevitable copying and sharing of files via illegal sites has begun. This is what every artist has to contend with these days.  We urge every music fan to stop for a moment and just think each time you share a music file which has not been purchased through official channels.
