TGC Back in Birmingham!

TGC by Russ EscrittTo round off our summer tour, we’re putting together a very jolly evening back in our homelands of Birmingham, on Saturday 23rd July.


Taking place at the A.E.Harris Factory in the Jewellery Quarter (home of the brilliant Stan’s Cafe Theatre Company), we’ll be playing material from our new album, along with several special guests, a photography exhibition, home-made bunting, some lovely food and drink on sale, some sofas to rest those weary behinds, and of course you’ll be able to invest in one of our limited EPs featuring three tracks from our forthcoming album, Release the Penguins.


We’re also embarking on a little experiment that may well see us bankrupt, but we’re letting everyone pay what they want to come in!  You can pay anything from £1, 5, 10, to … well, however far your overdraft/partner/coke habit will allow.  All proceeds from the evening will help us to fund production, manufacture and relevant bribery for our new album.

As long as we’re not being chased by the bailiffs, we’ll also give 10% of profits from the evening to Jessie’s Fund, a UK charity helping seriously ill and disabled children by using music for communication and for therapy.
