I would like to thank everyone who came down or donated to the Marc McCartney fundraiser we raised all in all around £3000. With some funds still to come in from the auction we should be able to pay for the funeral and set Marley up with a trust fund that we can all top up every now and then for when she is 18.
Everyone has been great in helping thanks Gary Curtis, Ian Tillotson,Helen Carter, Dec Wolf, Seamus O Hooligan, Matt Mitchell-Waite,Rob Corcoran, Piers Robinson, Sam Woodward, Lazytalk, Nick Welsh, Dj Pauly D, Anna and loads more people you are all stars.
We are throwing a fundraiser for the legend Marc McCartney to help him battle the bastard that is cancer. This event is to raise money directly for him.
He is a great friend, dad, artist, chef and person, so we have put together a little evening with performances from Nick Welsh (ex member of Bad Manners, The Selecter, and Skaville UK), LazyTalk and of course The Elasticated Waste Band.
There will be guest DJs filling in the gaps and a raffle and comps to win exclusive prizes. We are asking that people make a voluntary donation for as much or as little as they can for this worthy cause. So come down and help us raise as much as possible whilst having a great time.
This Friday we're back in action for a night of great music and celebration! As well as a full show from us, we've got a DJ set from Bonanza & Son taking us through into the early hours.
We're on from 8pm, and it's at The Lion, 132 Stoke Newington Church Street.
It's our Bobby's birthday bash, so come down and help him celebrate in style. See you there!
We are playing this evening at The Grafton in Kentish town at 8pm. It's an ale fest celebrating the 1st birthday of The Grafton so come down !! Five squid entry but that includes commemorative tankard and a pint from their epic selection so come on down and we'll see you there...
After a barnstorming night at the Wenlock Arms on Saturday, we've got another show lined up straight away! We'll be playing at the fantastic Countrier Than Thou night at the Lock Tavern in Camden this Thursday night. It's always a great evening, so come down and country it up with us!
On Saturday 18th May we're saying goodbye to another old friend, Filthy MacNasty's Whiskey Cafe. In what will be the last live music at the pub, we're playing one final show there. The pub's due to close the following Saturday.
The event's due to run from 7pm to 2am, and we'll be on from 7.30pm. Come down and help us send off this fine establishment in style!
We are thrilled to announce that we're going to be playing at a cracking event to welcome the Summer, a free festival in Shoreditch called "A Fete Worse Than Death"!
Hosted by The Book Club, the event's shaping up to be an amazing day of merriment in the heart of London. Not sure what time we're on yet, but the event runs from 12pm to 9pm.
In the words of The Book Club...
All the fun of a village fete, but with a Shoreditch twist
