THE EVENTS taking place on March 27 at 20:00 in Bratislava's A4 - Zero Space, are an introduction to this year's multimedia festival of art and new media called Fcuk Multiplace 3, which should begin soon. To clarify any misunderstanding, Fcuk means 'pull in' in Slovak, and the organisers are trying to pull in as many visitors as possible to join the events. Justice Yeldam and The Dynamic Ribbon Device band come to perform from Australia. Slovak bands Jamka, Urbanfailure, and RBNX from the Bratislava electronic collective Urbsounds will hit the stage later that day at the A4 - Zero Space on Námestie SNP 12. Tickets cost Sk100. Tel: 02/5921-4182.
