Doesn’t the name alone make you want to be part of it? Rebel Bingo is a brilliant, underground concept combining bingo (duh) with music, excentric clothes and secret locations. The way it started out in London makes a great story and is worth checking out. Just as their pictures on Flickr, where you can see what kind of crowd it attracts and how big it already is. This is what the organisers have to say about Rebel Bingo on their website:
Rebel Bingo is dangerous and addictive. The authorities are after us. They want to shut us down. But we won’t let them. Our numbers are growing. We’re spreading across the country. You won’t see us but we’re everywhere. You won’t hear us but we’re right behind you. We’re everywhere and nowhere, but wherever we are we’re playing dirty, hardcore muthafuckin Rebel Bingo on the down low. We know it’s wrong. But it feels so right. And they can’t stop us.
Rebel Bingo does come with a few rules: no old people, no boring people, no wankers, no office parties, no hen parties, no stag parties, no work suits, no customer service. Dress code: weird, flash or dangerous. Makes sense doesn’t it? :-) I can only hope it will come across the pond and will start in Amsterdam soon as well! I would be so in :-)
