BILLY BRAGG

7:00pm - 11:30pm
  • £25
  • Resident DJs

FRESH FROM TOURING THE WORLD WITH JOE HENRY AND GALVANISED BY ‘EVENTS’, NOT LEAST THE WORRYING RISE OF POPULARISM, BILLY BRAG IS DEALING WITH IT IN THE BEST WAY HE KNOWS HOW, BY STRAPPING ON HIS ELECTRIC GUITAR AND HEADING OUT ON TOUR ACROSS THE UK AND EUROPE IN NOVEMBER, UNDER THE TITLES ‘BRIDGES NOT WALLS’.

BILLY, IN ONE-MAN CLASH MODE, WILL PERFORM SONGS FROM HIS 30+ YEAR CAREER, SOME PERTINENT COVERS BY HIS HEROES AND MENTORS AND SOME FRESHLY MINTED SONGS ABOUT THE STATE OF THE WORLD.

SAYS BILLY, “MUSIC CAN’T CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT IT DOES HAVE THE POWER TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER. IN SUCH DIVISIVE TIMES, IT SEEMS A GOOD PLACE TO START.”
