Oxjam 2013

It’s that time of year again.

I remember that last year we wrote a piece here on the Pierless Music website about Oxjam and our own local event in Hastings and now we have another one in 2013.

Friday 11th October see’s this year’s Oxjam event and the venue this time around is The Roomz in Western Road, St Leonards On Sea.

For those who aren’t aware of what Oxjam is and what it does, you can find more info on their website at: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/oxjam

As the name suggests, all gigs are in aid of Oxfam, but Oxjam themselves explain it best by saying “Oxjam began in 2006, with the aim of creating a network of music-loving people across the UK, all united by a shared goal – to raise money to fight poverty and suffering around the world. 6 years on we’re still going strong, with hundreds of incredible gigs taking place each October”

On the bill at the Roomz are Unicorndad vrs Robodad, Fulhast, No ( ) Middle Name, Slum Of Legs and DJ Kuschel Rock. There will also be a charity auction.

Doors open at 7.30 and tickets cost £5 in advance and £6 on the door.

More info about the actual gig can be found on the Facebook event page at:

This Oxjam gig is supported by Hastings Brewery and the 1066 Cake Stand and you can sample their wares on the night.

It sounds like the perfect combination doesn’t it? Music, beer and cake and all in aid of a very worthwhile cause too.

Oxjam Hastings

If you fancy seeing some great local bands and help to raise much needed money for a very worthwhile charity, then we might just have the gig for you.

The Oxjam Festival is on at the Tubman in Hastings on Sunday, 28th October. That’s this coming weekend. There’s an event page for the gig on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/406401999375055/

As the name suggests, the event is in aid of Oxfam. Oxjam itself is a whole series of gigs, throughout the UK, all taking place during the month of October.

The Hastings event is being organised by David Georgiou, an 18 year old gig promoter from Hastings. David read about Oxjam, thought it was a great cause and applied online for a special tool kit to help him set up this local Oxjam event.

Oxjam Hastings starts and the music kicks off at 6pm. Entry is just £3, with all proceeds going to Oxjam. It is a 16+ event.

Bands and set times confirmed so far are as follows:

6.00 – 6.20: Voices

6.30 – 6.50: Adrenaline Tunnel

7.00 – 7.20: Acres Of Life

7.30 – 8.00: The Kid Kapichi

8.10 – 8.50: Otti Albeitz & Thad Skews

9.00 – 10.30: King Bathmat

As with all events like this, the running order and set times are subject to change.

It certainly sounds like an event well worth supporting and we hope to see you there.
