Victims of Punk Aid Gig
After the very disappointing, but necessary decision last week to cancel the Hemsby festival, we have been trying our best to pull something out of the hat and we can now confirm that there will be a gig on Sunday 20th March. The ‘Victims of Punk Aid’ gig will be at the Royal Standard pub in Walthamstow, London. Doors will be 5.30, and first band is on at 6pm with all bands off stage by 11pm in time for last trains. Entry is a tiny £6. UK Subs, Menace, Anoraks, Los Paraliticos and Dirty Love are all giving their services for the evening. There will also be a great local band doing their bit and we have special guest Jayne County as compere.
Together with stalls and of course, the Punk Aid - albeit rather downsized - Raffle at the end of the night, it should be a great gig. We really hope you can make it.
After not being able to have the festival, we would dearly like to make some contribution towards the charities we help, and we can’t do that without your support, so come along if you can and enjoy a great night out!"
