I'm a New Zealander travelling to Hungary for study in November and then to Germany for a week to catch up with friends, and then to England for a week and a half to holiday.
I'm really interested in finding out more info about gigs and clubs that are on at the beginning of Decemeber in London as I'll be there then and in all honesty NZ lacks a lot in the riot grrrl, homocore, queercore scene.
I really wanted to go to Homo a Gogo this year, but I can't afford anymore overseas trips. I've been to Ladyfest in Auckland a few years ago, and have been looking to see if I could go to anymore whilst in Europe, but to no avail.

What sort of things could anyone suggest?

I've heard that Club Motherfucker is good in London. Any other suggestions?

Some of my favourite bands are the Gossip, the Butchies, Sleater-Kinney, Le Tigre, Bikini Kill, Mirah, Team Dresch, Amy Kasio, Audio Porn etc.
See my profile for more info.

I'd also be interested in meeting up with people in London with similar interests.

Sorry if I end up spamming your communities.

club motherfucker definitely puts on great gigs along the lines of music you (and i) like, but check online to see what's on while you're in london. soho is pretty overrated, so try to find good gigs in advance to avoid disappointment. reply if you're going to berlin, because my best friend's living out there for the month and he knows some amazing queer venues and clubnights. hope you have an amazing trip. xxxxtrinity

I'm going to Berlin at the end of November to catch up with a friend, I'd love to know about queer venues there. My german is pretty terrible though.
Thanks for the help!

I've read about a few cool things in Leeds. I'm very tempted!

That'd be awesome. Thanks for the offer.
