DATES TO FOLLOW – CAN YOU HELP?*
Right! Here’s the story! Gail and I are going on tour in the autumn/winter- and we need your help! Can YOU:
*suggest a venue near you for us to play?
*organise us a show, (GWAN!!!)
*have us to play in your house????
It should be a whole lotta fun! Drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org or the Facebook event is here.
Here’s what the tour is about:
Kicking back In Austerity Britain Tour 2012 is a night of hard-hitting, socially engaged acoustic music. Two performers and activists from the UK, Cosmo and Gail Something-Else AKA Muddy Summers and the Dirty Field Whores, present a show with songs, story-telling and visuals, as well as discussion and literature about the various campaigns they have been involved in.
As the UK reels from the relentless onslaught of government cuts and institutional corruption, protests have mushroomed nationally. Globally, revolutions and uprisings have swept the board. We want to share our tales about these, as well as hear from you!
