gig news ~ refugee's welcome!

This Saturday, at the Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast a very special and important gig will be taking place. In aid of the Refugee Crisis which has captured the world's attention, the amazing people at 'Love Music, Hate Racism' have organised a bill of supreme local talent, with all the proceeds going to this great cause.

Usually at this stage in our gig previews we'd take the time to describe each act in detail and why you can't afford to miss out; this time however, we feel the cause for the gig is the most important thing.

On the night the likes of Tour Alaska, Son Of The Hound, Across The Line's Stuart Bailie (DJ Set), Verse Chorus Verse and even Charlie  Loane's new solo project 'Sticky Shadows' will all be playing, and what a wonderful line-up that is. Though for anyone unfamiliar with the acts or local music in general, this is still a great chance to do your part to help people who desperately need it.

All proceeds will go to Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders). They work both inside and outside Syria. They operate worldwide and are a medical foundation that provides healthcare to all who need it in war and humanitarian situations. Since May 2015 they have been running rescue missions to save refugees off the coast of Turkey. 

Any items you feel you could spare to help will also be sent to Calais.

Tickets are £10 for evening/full day
£5 for afternoon only. Children under 12 free. 

Afternoon Doors 12.30pm – 5pm - all ages welcome - first act 1pm.

Evening – 7pm – late (over 18s) licensed bar. (first act 7.30pm)

Oh Yeah Music Centre, 15-21 Gordon Street, Belfast, BT1 2LG

If you're free and want to help, it will be incredibly appreciated. 

Everyone is capable of helping ~ see you on Saturday!
