Redditch bands to go acoustic for Extinction Rebellion benefit gig

Redditch Editorial 4th Dec, 2019   0

A FRIENDLY fun-filled evening of acoustic music is promised this Saturday, December 7 at the recently re-opened White Hart in Headless Cross.

The event is a fund raiser for Extinction Rebellion, the eco group that’s been making waves across the country and it promises to be a great night for anyone concerned about the environment and the climate crisis.

Organised by the ‘Unco-operative Crusties’ several top local acts have been booked to appear, including Redditch’s very own Chaos Experience, the band banned from performing at this year’s Morton Stanley Festival for their single ‘Britain is Dead’.

However it did land them a spot in the satirical magazine Private Eye and they’ve gone on to release a new single ‘Political Risk’ on Amazon as well as recently playing at a Cotswolds wedding.

Other acts to look forward to are Pete Delaney of the Hedgerow Crawlers, Kate Akers and Karl Merrick and two more local duos Totem and Dylase.

Extinction Rebellion will be there, complete with fundraising stall, plus Redditch’s very own Rubbish Friends to promote the Keep Britain Tidy message.

Local Watertower artist Steve Pound of Chaos Experience is also putting up some of limited edition prints of his work as raffle prizes and joing them will be a great selection of local arts and crafts.

The fun starts at 7pm and entry is just £3.
