Lush Birmingham take over the venue on the 24th November for their Singing For Supper event, a night of live music in aid of The Night Shelter at Coventry Peace House.
Whose on the line-up?
Kicking off the night is The Chalet Lines, a solo act from Joe Parker (formerly of Enquire), if you like Pinegrove and Death Cab for Cutie this guys lo-fo memo pop melodies are just for you.
Joining them are Alfresco Love Sounds, after clocking up airtime on Tom Clabons show on Brum Radio and support from BBC WM Introducing these guys will be there to inject some sunshine into the evening with their upbeat psych-pop jams. Their new track ‘Lemonade’ is worth a listen.
Next up, plucked from a support slot for Yassassin and the Hungry Ghosts, new kids on the block, Sofa King take to the stage. Already making a name for themselves these guys mix jangly guitars and growly synths into something magical. Fronted by enigmatic Dianne Burdon these guys will be sure to give a performance to remember.
Headlining the bill are Tamworth alt-rock two-piece, You Dirty Blue. Fresh from supporting Wolf Alice on their UK tour at The Venue in Derby, this is a chance to hear them in an intimate setting, this band won’t be in small venues for much longer!
What is The Night Shelter?
The Night shelter is one of Coventry Peace Houses most used projects. Open from 8:30pm to 8:30 in the morning it provides a safe haven for those who need it. The shelter has 21 people staying with them every night with people from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. The shelter is run solely on donations and manages to do a lot with the small budget they have available. Coventry Peace House also act as a hub for a non-profit bike workshop, a community space, and the Peace House Education Trust, which tackles inequality by providing art workshops to hard to reach groups.
