Greetings from London on this landmark edition of The Weekender! As we hit this milestone edition #365, Homicidols has now published so many Weekenders that you could read a different one each day for a full year. I’m celebrating with a dinner consisting of my very first meat bun ever (chicken curry) followed my first taste of mince pies for dessert courtesy of our very own Kerrie. I actually spent the day wandering around London with a multi-national gang of OOMFS including Team Homicidols’ Cal and Kerrie. In another landmark, this week saw the very first time three whole members of Team were together in the same place at the same time. We are not typically allowed to be in such close proximity for reasons to do with maintaining the line of succession, but special dispensation was received due to the OTHER landmark event taking place this week: the Western debut of ASP, ExWHYz, and AiNA THE END at WACK in the UK.

As announced at the end of the show, WACK is returning to London this coming March with ASP (again), GANG PARADE, and KiSS KiSS. There is no word yet on a venue, but speculation puts it somewhere other than Underworld as the thirteen members of GANG PARADE may not be able to fit on that little stage.
