Revolt #7 – Saturday 29th November

September 16, 2014 1 comment

We’re back – and what a line-up we have for you! As usual, we’ll have a mix of incredible bands, DJs, spoken-word acts and stalls at The Coal Vaults in Coventry, including…

The Tuts

THE TUTS –  a sassy all-girl punk band with pop sensibilities, hailing from West London. Last year they were hand-picked to tour with Kate Nash, this summer they played Glastonbury’s Left Field stage, and this November…they’re coming to Coventry!

DIRTYriot grrrl meets noise rock. This Gloucestershire trio like horrible riffs, Divine, glitter and phallic imagery.

NOT RIGHT – basically the Revolt house band at this point, angry/earnest/joyous. Expect lipstick-smeared bodies and overexcited feminist sloganeering.

THE PASSÉISTS – exciting new local group featuring members of Revolt alumni Bad Vibes and My Therapist Says Hot Damn.

ELEANOR LISNEY – reading poetry composed in varied stages of her life, mostly from the perspective of a disabled woman in exile, from memories culled from childhood in Malaysia or as young expat wife living in France.

SOPHIE HADLUM – at our last event, Sophie delighted us with strange tales of the forest and sarcastic feminist puppetry. So we invited her back…

SOPHIE SPARHAM – the second Sophie on our line-up is a sci-fi/ fantasy writer, poet and has a show on TotalRock Radio. Her poetry aims to inspire and comment on the world around us.

DJ J355 – another welcome return to Revolt, spinning grrrl tunes between bands.

ALIEN SHE – spinning female-fronted indie and alternative rock to get you dancing after the bands!

Plus, as always, we’ll have the usual range of zine stalls, the chance for you to help make the next Revolt zine, and the Revolt Feminist Library will be present.

Tickets will cost £5 on the door or £3 in advance, with advance tickets available soon.




Free Revolt compilation – FUN SWITCH

November 15, 2013 1 comment

Inspired by releases such as the Riots Not Diets albums, we’ve put together a compilation to celebrate the first year of Revolt, featuring fifteen great bands who have played our events.

It’s available for FREE to stream and download. The download file comes with information about every band and printable CD sleeves.

Reflecting on the November event

November 13, 2013 Leave a comment

We had another wonderful event at the beginning of November – thanks to My Therapist Says Hot Damn, Jesus and his Judgemental Father, Bad Vibes, A Year From Now, Kat Gupta and Revolting Words open mic for their amazing sets, Megan and Tom for their wonderful patch/zine stall, and everyone who came to party in a positive way with us.

We’ve had a bit of feedback from both attendees and from materials left at the zine table which we’ll totally be taking on board for future events. It really matters to us that Revolt is accessible and safe for all. If you have any concerns about anything that happens at our events, please do let us know.

The next Revolt will take place on SATURDAY 22ND FEBRUARY, once again in the Coal Vaults.

We’ll have a DJ set from the incredible Ruby Please, a stall hosted by Robot Unicorn Records, plus Megan and Tom will be back with their punk patch/zine stall. Plus, some really fantastic bands and spoken word – more on that soon.

At this event we’ll be distributing the first ever Revolt Zine – pieced together from some of the fantastic/fun/powerful pieces of art, doodling and prose people contributed on 2nd November.

We’ll see you in February!

Revolt zine and CD giveaway

October 28, 2013 Leave a comment

Revolt is almost upon us!  Yet we have a couple more exciting things still to announce…

Firstly, we’ll be making the first ever Revolt Zine…and we’re inviting you to be a part of it.

We’ll have a table near the bar with a whole load of paper, pens, pencils, sharpies, glue, scissors and the like. We’re inviting you to contribute anything that you fancy contributing – perhaps a drawing, a poem, a story, an essay, a review of one of the acts. Maybe you’d like to bring in a magazine, cut it up, and comment on it. It’s really up to you.

We’ll be assembling the zine from pages made on the night, and distributing it at our next event, due to take place in early 2014.

Secondly, we’ll be giving away a free compilation CD to the first 30 people through the door. This compilation will feature most of the bands that have played Revolt during the past year, so trust us when we say that it’s utterly awesome and you should get there early to pick up a copy.

And as if that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, we’ll leave you with this video…

We’ll see you on Saturday!

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…


My Therapist Says Hot Damn

My Therapist Says Hot Damn

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.

A Year From Now

A Year From Now

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.
