REVOLT #4 – first announcement!

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment

The next Revolt will take place in Taylor John’s House on Saturday 2nd November. And what a line-up we have for you…

To open the night, we’re teaming up with with LGBTQ Open Mic as part of Coventry Peace Festival:

An ultra-chilled, ultra-welcoming opportunity to test out new poetry or wow us with your tried and tested best.  The LGBTQ spoken word open mic runs from 6pm – 7.30pm – expect a vibe that is supportive, exploratory and occasionally rough around the edges. 

We’ll also have performances from a whole host of other live acts…

Don’t let the friendly faces fool you. Whilst this lovely punk five-piece from London are avowedly “mum-friendly”, they’re also capable of creating an almighty racket. They went down a storm at LaDIYfest Berlin this summer, and we can’t wait to welcome them to Coventry!

Jesus & His Judgemental Father (acoustic)
A stripped-down set from Leed’s finest. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen when a riot grrrl politic and aesthetic are filtered through the pop-punk stylings of Blink-182 or No Doubt, now’s your chance to find out.

Bad Vibes
A shiny new riot grrrl band from Coventry, featuring former members of Revolt veterans Parataxis. This is likely to be their first gig, and it’s gonna be awesome.

A Year From Now
Pop-punk from Warwickshire, and a lot of fun with that. A Year From Now made quite an impression at the University of Warwick Battle of the Bands this year – we’re looking forward to seeing them again!

Kat Gupta
Moving spoken-word pieces. Kat is a person of many talents: a feminist scholar, LGBTQ activist and blogger. They’ve also been honing their performance skills this summer with Lashings of Ginger Beer Time at the Edinburgh Fringe…

Plus! more to be announced.
