Revolt!

by Ruth

Revolt #7
We’re playing Revolt again! As ever, it’s going to be amazing.

This time around, we’ll be sharing a stage with The Tuts, Dirty and The Passéists, as well as a bunch of awesome DJs and spoken word performers.

There is a Facebook event page here.

So many gigs

by Ruth

Thanks to everyone who came down to see us play, read our zines and nab our CDs at Zephyr on Friday – it was an utterly brilliant night and we totally enjoyed every minute of it. Parataxis, Old Raskals, Deathsex Bloodbath, We Are A Communist and James from Tempest all deserve praise too for utterly stonking sets. We should do this again soon!

From the (recent) past to (near) future…we‘re now booked for four events in the coming months:

On Tuesday 5th February we’ll be playing in the Copper Rooms for the annual University of Warwick Battle of the Bands. This will be the second year we enter, and once again we’ll be going all-out for our 15-minute performance. Last year we caused a bit of a stir after unexpectedly getting into the semi-final – this year, who knows?

Thursday 21st February: from the University of Warwick to Coventry University – we’re down to play at Love Music Hate Homophobia at Hush nightclub. More details to follow!

Saturday 16th March will see the return of Revolt! A proper line-up announcement for Coventry’s DIY riot grrrl ruckus should follow soon.

…and on Friday 10th May we’ll be returning to London for a gig with National Minimum Rage in Hackney’s Power Lunches!

Full details (and updates, when we have them!) can be found on our live page.

Love Music Hate Homophobia

Our next gig is a fundraiser for Prism LGBTQ and Unite Against Fascism on Thursday 29th November, at the University of Warwick Students’ Union in Coventry.

We’ll be playing alongside atomic surf-rock group We Are A Communist, pop-rockers Jordan and the Sketcheads and, uh, Warwick Glee. There will also be some kind of performance or dance lesson type thing from Warwick Salsa, and DJs from Rocksoc. Who needs genre consistency?

Tickets will be on sale soon here.

Revolt!

by Ruth

We’ve been making little references to Revolt for some time, and even put a hastily constructed poster for it onto the back of our most recent zine. But finally, the time has come to reveal more about Coventry’s riot grrrl night!

Revolt will take place in Taylor John’s House on Saturday 13th October. We’ll be opening the night in support of other punk bands, spoken word acts, DJs and a feminist burlesque group. Excited? Of course you are.

Full details can be found on the Revolt page, which should be updated over the next couple of months as more details are announced.
