Anti-racist gig features TOTS, Mark Dicker and Giant Swan

Teeth Of The Sea, Giant Swan and Mark Dicker are among the many acts playing at the UNITY anti-racism all-dayer on Sunday September 25 at New River Studios, East London.

The 12 hour gig also features Steve Beresford, Kreol Lovecall, Coldnose and Slags not to mention Heather Weil of Black Impulse, Chris Reeder of Rocket Records and tQ's John Doran on the decks.

Sam Barton of TOTS speaks for everyone involved when he says: "We know we weren’t the only ones feeling upset, angered and terrified by the surge in hate crime not to mention the emboldening of existing racist and bigoted tendencies in the wake of the Brexit farrago, and we felt that it was time to strike back at political apathy.

"UNITY is a funds/awareness raising event where all proceeds go to anti-hatred organisation Hope Not Hate.

"We’re thrilled to welcome a plethora of delights to New River Studios, one of our favourite new venues in London, along with what may well be our last London show of 2016. Come and get righteously loud with us and our friends."

Advance tickets are £9 (plus 10% booking fee) and will be £12 on the door (availability allowing).
