It’s almost that time again. The 27th of October sees the release of our fourth annual charity download compilation of Medway music. Once again, it’s at the Nag’s Head in Rochester where we’ll be joined by Crybaby Special & The Monsters, with support from The Muswells, These Guilty Men and Broken Banjo. The music kicks off at 8:30pm and ends at 11pm. These launch nights are very well attended, so get there nice and early.
This year’s album is our biggest yet, with over fifty tracks from local artists and featuring cover art by the brilliant Lupen Crook. It will be available to download via this site from midnight on Saturday 27th October, right after the gig. When you download the album, you will be encouraged to make a donation to this year’s charity. It’s called Holding On Letting Go and is based in Rochester. It supports bereaved children, young people, (6-16) and their families and carers in Kent and Medway who have experienced the death of an important person in their lives. Please donate what you can when the time comes.
We’ll reveal the full line up when we release the album. In the meantime, feel free to plug the hell out of the event and album. You can download a high resolution version of the above poster here.
Thanks again to everyone who came to the Barge last week to help us raise money to keep The Medway Broadside online and afloat for another year. As well as playing, Rew shot some hand-held footage of all the performers, and you can now see a song from each of them below. It was quite an evening. You can probably tell that :0)
We enjoyed last year’s Unframed exhibition at the Barge so much that we thought we’d do it again. Click on the poster to download it, spread the word and join us for a portable, accessible exhibition by local photographers wrapped up in a family friendly afternoon of live acoustic music from Didi Bergman and Survivors of Suki. Check out the Facebook event here.
We’re delighted to announce a cracking line up for the opening gig for the Eyes All Around opening on Friday 6th May. We are proud to present the legendary Bob Collins with his band The Full Nelson, ably supported by punk poet and gentleman raconteur Unlucky Fried Kitten and the hypnotic Joe Cottiss.
All are welcome to the opening of the Eyes All Around exhibition, which takes place between 6:30 and 8:00 pm at the Brook Theatre Gallery, and we’d be delighted if you would join us for this gig just down the road afterwards, from around 8:30.
