REVOLT vs CATHARSIS – Saturday 31st May

April 1, 2014 Leave a comment


What happens when two club nights collide?

REVOLT vs CATHARSIS is a genre-bending, one-off meeting of Coventry’s friendliest alternative events. Featuring live bands, DJs, distros and more…

DRAG blew us away when they played Revolt #3 – they’ll be back with new songs from their debut album, Neurotica: A Compendium of Tales Regarding Body & Mind.

Dark romantic band Last July were really excited by the idea of Revolt vs Catharsis – and we’re excited to have them! They’ve toured both nationally and in Europe, and have a new album due out later this year.

Legendary zine creator Karren Ablaze! produced Ablaze! from 1987 to 1993, and later fronted the awesome riot grrrl bands Coping Saw and Wack Cat. She’ll be reading from her great new book, The City Is Ablaze!



anarchistwood have to be seen to be believed. They played the very first Revolt and we’re super-hyped to have them back. Sitting somewhere between surreal performance art and a punk rock show, they’ve done something completely different every time we’ve seen them. And that’s what we love about them.

You may have seen Zoe Kristensen DJing at Revolt in the past – this time, she’s back to regale you with alliterative, cynical, sometimes scientific poetic ramblings.



Zines and more from the Revolt! distro, including the launch of our second zine

…and so much more…

As usual, the event will take place in the Coal Vaults in Coventry. Tickets will be available on the door and in advance. This is a non-profit, DIY event and is happening because we love to make awesome things happen. All proceeds go towards covering costs.

Both Revolt and Catharsis are intended to be a safe, welcoming events, and we take a zero-tolerance approach to any sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist behaviour etc.


REVOLT #4 – first announcement!

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.
