DRAG

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.

 

Plus!

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

Catharsis DJs

…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 #5 – second announcement

January 22, 2014 Leave a comment

With a month to go until our next event on Saturday 22nd February, we’re pleased to announce a whole load of cool stuff…
Bad VibesRounding off the band line-up are Bad Vibes, who a whole load of people wanted to see again after a great debut set at the last Revolt. So, we’ve invited them back!

We’ve also confirmed a couple of fantastic spoken word acts. Jo Johnson will be travelling down from Leeds to deliver a fiery collection of political poems. Megan Dodds will be making her second appearance at Revolt, following a powerfully moving performance back at the beginning of 2013. We’re also hoping to have a speaker from Reclaim The Night Coventry, which will be taking place on Saturday 1st March.

Finally, we’re delighted to announce the return of the Possessed to Print patch stall and zine library. If you attended our November 2013 event, you definitely won’t have missed their awesome DIY riot grrrl and punk patches!

We’ll have advance tickets on sale soon, so keep checking back for updates!
