    DRUMS ROLLING...WIND CHIMES CLINKING....HORNS BLOWIN FROM A DISTANCE... huum chaak, u peek chaak (THUNDER, THUNDER)....Remember your life as a Mayan or Aztec....feel one with your soul in that life...tu'ub, tu'ubsik neen (forget the mirror)...and now read on: December 21 2012 will see the first galactic alignment of the planets in 26,000 years. Our Mayan and Aztec selves foretold that this would be the end of a life cycle, and this very night marks the final day of our calendar. In the spirit of our forward and free-thinking peoples, the Pirate Radio Boat brings to London a night of celebrations of the cycles of life on the tides of the Thames. The Pirate Radio Boaters have assembled the best of today's musicians, DJs and performers to take us all on a journey to the highest realms of space, time, and of course, the boogie! We herald in the End of the World and Dawn of the New Age. Come and join us afloat the moon and clouds! Be sacrificed to the gods! Worshipped by the stars! Ride the Cosmic Shifts in our Hips! And be part of the celebration of the life and lives we've had, and that which has been, is or is yet to come! The Pirate Radio project is inspired by the men and women who fought for the freedom of truthful expression through pirate radio stations at the dawn of the age of broadcasting.
