BUG plays Vimeo Festival + Awards in New York on October 8th
BUG will play its very first show in North America in just over one week's time.
The inimitable cocktail of brilliant music video creativity and laughter that is BUG, is coming to the inaugural Vimeo Festival+Awards in New York on Thursday, October 8th - hosted, as always, by Adam Buxton.
Adam will present a very special two-hour show - including a selection of videos entered for the first Vimeo music video award - and also (hopefully) welcome a very special yet-to-be-revealed guest - at the SVA Theatre, 333 W 23rd St, New York at 8.30pm.
The show is open to all holders of the Vimeo Festival Pass, which also allows entry into all other talks, panels, screenings, special events and closing party on October 9th - at which the winners of the first Vimeo Awards will be announced. Other speakers at the festival include Morgan Spurlock, Lucy Walker, DJ Spooky, Reggie Watts and Bruce Sterling.
