Cure Party in Vegas

The events are private for only those who are attending so Please email Kelly at for details of who/what/where. It will be a weekend to remember for sure, we have been planning this for over 10 months! Each person is to pay $50 towards the event fund. That helps fund both nights.

And if you haven't bought a Robert Smith Is Missing shirt, there are only 16 left. (Thanks Kel)

Rome 2008 HD video (RS & KU audio mix)

Update: Thanks to Xuan, there's now a torrent for this.

"This isn't circulating on The Cure boards, I can guarantee it's by far the best quality video of the Rome 2008 4:13 Dream premiere show you'll find anywhere. It's an alternative camera angle version to the commonly circulated complete version, the audio of this alternate version is also remixed by Robert Smith and Keith Uddin. The quality is far superior to anything that's previously been shared on The Cure boards, it's a 720p High Definition, .mkv file about 4.3GB. It's all of 4:13 Dream (except Sirensong, The Real Snow White, This Here And Now With You)."
