London fights back - Jens Lekman, the Nuns and Thee Spivs play benefits

Article written by Paul M - Feb 10, 2011

As the Tory led Government continues to batter public services by forcing councils to make cuts that few want, it's great to see activists fighting back with local community campaigns. And just like in the 80s, rock n roll is playing its part. So it is with great pleasure SoundsXP are able to help push the efforts by those putting on gigs benefiting a venue in Hackney, a Lewisham school's trip and a wider campaign to stop library closures. Those offering services include Jen Lekman, Darren Hayman, Thee Spivs and The Nuns. Makes you proud.

Details so far:

THEE SPIVS + JOHNNY THROTTLE + MEINHOF + TRASHCAT play at
The Others, 6-8 Manor Road, Stoke Newington N16 on Friday 11 February. Doors open 7pm.
This gig is in aid of a proposed new music venue in London, the Hackney Trashbar.

THE NUNS + BRAIN WASHINGTON + THE OBSCURITONES
play a benefit gig to raise funds for Sedgehill School of Lewisham’s school trip.
The Windmill, 22 Blenheim Gardens, SW2 5BZ Brixton.
20/2/11
Doors 7.30pm

A special live music event, a mini-festival, an evening of sublime indiepop held in the lovely Nettlefold Hall above West Norwood Library. It is a protest against the widespread closure of libraries, here in London, and across the Nation.
