Special event: 50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong at The Black Box

Tonight fans will gather at The Black Box in Belfast for a free celebration of the life and work of inimitable Fall frontman Mark E Smith

ATTEN-SHUN ah! Tonight at The Black Box in Belfast, Fall fans are invited to participate in a free gathering to celebrate the music of the late, great Mark E Smith, who passed away last month after a hard-lived 60 years.

50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong will be soundtracked by Fall selections plus cuts from the Fall's influencers and those they influenced, all chosen by previously unknown DJs Rebellious Jukebox and Paranoia Man in Cheap S*** Room – who look suspiciously like Mark Reid from Touch Sensitive Records and Stuart 'Moxie' Watson – and offset by visuals of Mr Smith and his innumerable employees in action.

Dress code is 'Mark E-chic', so don your favourite leather blazer and/or tank-top and get along for a celebratory lurch to all your favourite Fall, pre-Fall and Fall-esque numbers in-between the sharing of many 'that time I met/punched/was punched by Mark' memories and general Fall-based chin-waggage.

Kick-off is at 8.30pm, while the provision of a morale-boosting 'late bar' should encourage prolonged participation of a loose-limbed nature.
