We're thrilled to announce another in our run of special live fundraisers, with Gum Takes Tooth, Lower Slaughter and Mighty Lord Deathman to descend upon The Lexington in January

As part of tQ's 10th birthday celebrations, and to help raise some much-needed funds for the site, we're teaming up with one of London's finest small venues The Lexington for a special run of exclusive live performances.

We've already announced two shows from the mighty Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs and Wrangler ft. Lonelady and Serafina Steer respectively - find out about those here - and now it's our pleasure to reveal the third.

On Saturday January 13, we'll be hosting the blitzkrieg of inertia-inducing electronic dissonance and twitchy, narcotic-withdrawal percussion that is Gum Takes Tooth, one of the greatest live bands around.

Joining them will be the quite preposterously loud Brighton outfit Lower Slaughter, whose debut album was described by tQ as "full of pomp, spit and bile careening about with uptempo stomping and heavy sludge". Finishing the bill will be Mighty Lord Deathman, who offers twisting, thumping, evil electronic spikes.

Tickets for the show are just £8, and can be purchased here.

If you're unable to attend the live shows, please consider making a donation to help keep The Quietus running. To find out more about why we need your help, and to make either a one off or recurring donation, click here.
