Charity Event - The Crypt, St Andrews, Norwich 30/05/2013 - Preview


This Thursday will see the The Crypt in Norwich play host to a charity event in aid of Link Community Development, with performances from Alison MacKinnon, The Upgrade, Wicked Faith and Bad Touch.

Solay Elibol, lead singer and guitarist for The Upgrade and co-organiser of this evening of live music explains: "The band have helped with many charity gigs in the past. Link Community Development is our chosen charity this time. It's the first charity show we have organised and we hope to make it a great night.
"Set up in 1989, the charity aims to help building schools and communities in sub-Saharan countries with a vision to provide free education to all. As a token to the fantastic cause, we will be putting on this show to raise awareness and cash to help them on their mission."

Alison MacKinnon will start things off on the night with an acoustic set. A young singer/songwriter, Alison has built up an impressive portfolio of both original and cover tracks while completing a music-related college course. Currently based in Norfolk, she has ambitions of studying a degree in a bigger city and continuing to express herself through her music. With a unique soul feel to her voice, she’s sure to be successful.
Having helped arrange this event, The Upgrade are due on stage next. Formed in August 2010, the local alternative rock band recently welcomed a new member to the group to complete their current line-up, and with catchy tracks like ‘Host’ and ‘Leave it behind’ as part of their catalogue, they will bring plenty of energy to proceedings. Recent gigs have included support of Bad Touch at the KE7 and kicking off The Brew's Waterfront show in March.

 With Wicked Faith next on stage, the quality music is set to continue. With a female lead singer and bass guitarist, this band brings something a bit different to rock & roll, and with their very own sound, it’s no surprise that EP launch in Norwich last year was such a success. It'll be my first time seeing these guys live and I'm really looking forward to it. 

Bad Touch will complete the line-up fresh from their appearance at the Live & Loud Mind Festival in Birkenhead. With a busy start to the year which included studio time and performances across the country - supporting the likes of Dressed to Kill and Heaven's Basement, as well as headlining their own shows, the boys will be taking a month off performing after this gig, so make sure you don’t miss it!

Entry for the event is only £2 and proceeds from the door will go to the charity, so please come along and show your support!
