Bush Hall - and the Best Dressed Man in Town

Adam Ant at Bush HallAdam Ant played live at the Bush Hall, Shephard's Bush on Monday 9 May 2011 - armed with a cheap ticket and a crumpled notebook Ant Lib's Madam Stan reports...

If you've been following us on Twitter these past 6-9 months, you can’t have failed to notice our whinging and whining. Or the huffing and the puffing. The inflated prices hadn't helped Adam’s cause. The predictable on stage (and off stage) strops hadn't helped Adam’s cause. Slagging off Marco did him no favours, and, as for other generally shitty behaviour – well, we couldn't possibly comment on all that in the public domain.

As a warm-up for the forthcoming tour, this was never promised to be a behemoth of an Ant event, however with tickets exchanging hands for at least a third below face value on eBay, it would seem that expectations from the public at large were far from high for Adam’s return to W12 – sixteen years on from his now legendary London comeback at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire as part of the Wonderful tour in March 1995.

Happy New Year, Antpeople!

A few nice piccies from the last few monthsRoyal Wedding in the offing, riots on the streets of London, snow at Christmas, Tories sucking the lifeblood out of the social sector, and live Ant Shows a-plenty - you could almost be forgiven for confusing 2010 with 1981! ;")

It's been a busy old year for Ant Lib as well as Adam - with a new Ant Lib Online launched in February/March, Warriors 4 completed in the summer and a packed-out Ant Lib Weekender in November. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support during these very busy twelve months (the busiest of all our 12 years so far!) and wish all members, subscribers and supporters a very happy & prosperous New Year.

But enough of all that sentimental stuff, our Caroline's put together a rather nifty video of Adam & Ant Lib's antics in 2010, featuring interview clips, live shows and sneak preview footage from our 10th Adam & the Ants Celebration (a full report to follow soon), so enjoy - and here's to 2011, in which we hope there'll be much more of the same!

Adam & the Ants Flashmob - This Saturday!

Adam Ant does the Prince CharmingWe've now become quite used to Adam Ant making his now infamous guerrilla live appearances, but if you're taking a trip to London's West End Saturday morning, you may find yourself among a whole mob of Ant fanatics showing off their "Pride, Courage, Humour and Flair" as they dance the Prince Charming down Carnaby Street, W1.

A collaborative effort of fellow Ants fans and social media commentators Marcus Brown and Gareth Adams (with a friendly little nudge from Ant Lib), the Adam & the Ants Flashmob will convene for 10am sharp at the Great Marlborough Street end of Carnaby Street on Saturday 10 April. This will be the first ever Ant Flashmob of its kind, so please do spread the word to anyone you know who might be in the central London area on Saturday morning.

Later in the day, Marcus and Gareth will be performing in Tweetdom & Gomorrah - a dark, scary and funny mix of video, presentation and stand-up performance, holding up a mirror to what’s going on Online. Interesting, thought-provoking stuff and familiar territory for online Ant fans!
