Part of the Lebanese Underground, The New Government are edgy, ironic and iconic – on election day in Lebanon, a vote for The New Government got you 5 of their tracks. Tanya Traboulsi’s images are evocative, intimate portraits of the wealth of undeground talent from rock/punk to electronica.Vital Statistics:Opening, Saturday 14th November 8pm-2am Tickets £8.
