Signs of cogs and grinding machinery in M.O.D Towers suggest that the next performance is due. This heroic exploit will take place on the 8th of July.
Betty has been observed to apply stern measures to ensure that other members of M.O.D are brought to heel and do not utter views contrary to Betty’s Law of Discipline. Special dietary measures have been applied.
This, M.O.D will do for YOU, so that YOU may observe M.O.D in an untamed outdoor setting.
M.O.D will play this EVENT with a cavalcade of other splendid bands.

  1. M.O.D says:

    Studious types will point out that “clicking below’ is not the primary means of attending this event. Forms of transport and a general willingness are the PREFERRED METHOD for attending events.
    Clicking this link and accepting the invite is NOT LEGALLY BINDING, despite what you may have read in society journals.

  2. M.O.D says:

    Addendum: It has been noted that during M.O.D concerts, some audience members have been observed to use inappropriate celebrations; these deplorable aberrations consist of wanton expressions of grandeur.

    Do not presume to lull M.O.D into this world of depravity. These cocksure expressions of youthful vigour can only be practiced in the safety of your home.
