Playing a gig in an interesting old building with lots of history (keeping the river free of pollution from the late 1890s to 1968), you can help support the museum that was saved from demolition after it closed in 1968 and has been run mainly by volunteers, on a low budget, ever since. The day runs from 11 to 5 – Karmadillo will be on in the afternoon 2-4pm, and I’m trying to write something to fit in with the building as well!
a one-day multi venue music festival all in aid of Oxfam….will feature a Karmadillo appearance at The Emperor on Saturday lunchtime. The Emporer will feature the comedy music venue – Karmadillo will be sure to provide both! Full details are here!
So the first Professor Karmadillo gig will happen on October 3rd at The Portland Arms, Cambridge.
It will be as opening support – and ironically this first gig is on a night featuring another bands last. After 4 albums and however many years The Vichy Government are stopping. The night will have films, a fez on the door for donations, free junk and fully licenced bar. Well, thats according to the Facebook page where you can say if you are coming or not. The other act on is Quimper.
Here’s the guys from Vichy Government doing their take on a Nirvana song….
