Given recent events in the city, Belfast has a lot of catching up to do in convincing the world that racial tolerance is alive and well amongst its inhabitants.

Helping to redress the balance are the Love Music, Hate Racism organisation, a group of people who celebrate different styles of music through their gigs and club nights, while simultaneously trying to promote racial harmony.

Their recently-formed local monthly club night Melting Pot has teamed up with the Trans Festival for an extra-special outing on Saturday night, featuring a fusion of indie, electronica, hip hop and spoken word, courtesy of live bands, DJs and poetry groups.

Headlining the bill are Super Extra Bonus Party, a Dublin-based band producing an upbeat, eclectic sound which earned them a prestigious Choice Music Prize for their self-titled 2007 album. Their second album, Night Horses, was released in May and the band's live credits include support slots with Go! Team, Cadence Weapon and Bonde do Rôle, as well as performances at Electric Picnic in 2007 and 2008.

Tomorrow night's line up also boasts North Antrim hip hop troupe Team Fresh, DJs Venus Roller Girl and Parsley Monkphat and Belfast bards Scream Blue Murmur. Doors open at 8pm, admission is £3.
