T-Wrecks Fundraiser

It may seem like a long time ago now but bloggers are much like squirrels and we've been mostly asleep/burying nuts under trees since the end of September. (This sounds like a lie - Ed).

Which is why you haven't seen a write-up of the fantastic fundraising gig organised by our very own T-Wrecks and hosted by Audio. Until now.

First up was Jonzip, described on his website as a "solo acoustic punk". He was in 70s punk band, The Zips, and has recently struck out on his own with folk/punk/protest music and we were in for a treat.

He was followed by The Superlatives, who are made up of three guys from Wetherby and play music with obvious punk/indie/alternatives influences. Full of energy, they grabbed the attention and didn't let it drop for a second!

And last but not least were Glaswegian nine-piece ska collective, Esperanza. Featuring ex-GRD skater Jess E Ska, they soon had everyone up dancing and by the end no-one wanted it to be over. I'm fairly certain I've expended less energy during intense gym sessions than some of those skanking, pogoing and generally throwing themselves about!

The event raised over £300. We would like to thank the venue, the bands, everyone who came along and had a wonderful time and everyone else involved in making it such a success!

If this has whetted your appetite for more Home Teams action, why not come along on 12th November to see the T-Wrecks face up to the Bad Omens in our Home Teams Final?! Tickets and more info here.
