The ODT reports:
Speight’s, a long-time sponsor of the Otago University Students Association Orientation Week, will no longer be associated with the annual event on campus, following a move by the University of Otago to ban alcohol advertising and sponsorship.
This is heresy. O Week without the Speights posters will not be the same. People will still drink just as much Speights I predict.
The headline band this year is United States-based Health, described as a “fluid, spiky maelstrom of blood and neon, mirrorball and icepick”, which “mashes together disco and punk into a noisy, spastic tribal inhalation of sound”.
See you need to be under the influence of Speights to be able to cope with that music!
