All my favourite singers couldn't sing.

David Berman, pavement hero of the Silver Jews and the comeback king of Purple Mountains, passed on August 7.

He left behind a corduroy suit made of a hundred gutters, jagged skylines of car keys, 50,000 beer cans and a wild kindness.

Paying tribute are Adrian Crowley, Steve Windings, Anna Carey and Patrick Freyne, Maija Sofia, Skelokrats, Eileen Gogan, The Former Soviet Republic, Dudley Colley and a host more to be announced.

Come along and help them to raise another 50,000 beers in David's memory on the night, and we'll let his songs sing out in the wild silence one more time.

All proceeds to Aware.

Tickets are selling. Maybe not quite like "hot cakes" but at least like "warm scones".

This is such a lovely idea-I did say to Hugh that I might not be here for it, and won't know until mid-September, but crossing fingers I am. Well done all, and a great organisation to give proceeds to :love:

Brian Brannigan (A Lazarus Soul) added to the line up.


Also, Derek McCormack of Gluefoot (formerly of Settler) would have been a terrific addition to the bill, but his being in Australia has made it too much of a logistical nightmare, Brexit etc...

Instead he's done a rather lovely cover of Pretty Eyes, which you can enjoy by clicking this doo-hickey. Thanks Derek!
