Forced Entertainment webcast this weekend

For those, like me, who have a slightly unnatural love for the group known as Forced Entertainment (and there are a lot of you) I have good news. Our favourite band of players are performing in your living room this weekend! Well, provided you have a computer connected to the internet in your living room.

They are performing the 6-hour durational version of Speak Bitterness, their obsessive litany of confessions, in Essen, Germany and the whole thing will be webcast on Forced Entertainment's website. It takes place on the 28th of February at 5pm UK time which my time zone converter tells me is Sun 1st of March at 4am - 10am AEDST. It's a rare opportunity to see Speak Bitterness and, given they've only ever been to Australia twice, a rare chance to see Forced Entertainment at all short of a plane ticket or their über-expensive DVDs (yep, that's in pounds folks). For those who haven't seen Forced Entertainment before it's a good chance to see this amazing group whose influence has been visible in a lot of work on Melbourne stages recently.
