THE TASK IN HAND Xmas ‘Fundraiser’…
Where: The Marr’s Bar, Worcester. WR1 1TA.
When: 18:00 Saturday, December 29th.
Artists: Theo, Vault Of Eagles, Broken Oak Duet, Das Sexy Clap, Sealab IV, Tokamak, Wes Dance,
Howard James Kenny.
The Task In Hand are hosting a (potentially) spectacular Xmas showcase of local musical talent. Artists
such as Theo, Das Sexy Clap, Vault Of Eagles and Howard James Kenny will be playing the Marr’s
Bar on Saturday, December 29th. All takings are to be squirreled away – to act as a safety net – so that
the risk of the larger guarantees for bigger, established acts can be met and taken on with less fear.
Back in October of this year, The Task In Hand came off a short hiatus, to start promoting events again.
Finding a new hunger to help improve Worcester’s music scene. All events are non-profit. They would
also like them to be non-loss too! By raising funds to help back them up, they can set up bigger musical
events – The likes of which Worcester deserves and would easily be capable of hosting. Already in the
pipeline for 2013 is the legendary Mike Watt (The Stooges, The Minutemen, fIREHOSE) in February.
To raise these funds, an end of year celebration of local music is taking place. On Saturday, December
29th, The Marr’s Bar in Pierpoint Street will be filled with some of the best acts Worcestershire and the
surrounding areas have produced.
A strong line-up consisting of: the haunting ethereal loops of Howard James Kenny, playing his first
Worcester show in an age; Worcester’s folk troubadour, Wes Dance; the instrumental Tokamak, albeit
missing their drummer; the odd, lo-fi and seemingly improv no-wave soundscapes of Sealab IV; the
utterly fantastic Das Sexy Clap, who make more beautiful, rocked out noise than a two piece should be
legally and physically allowed to; baritone guitar and drum ensemble The Broken Oak Duet; blissed out
desert rock from Vault Of Eagles; and the evening’s headliner and long time Worcester musical hero,
Theo, with his mathy, rocked out looping guitars and pounding, technical drumming.

This is a night not to be missed…

It’s not often that I preview a show here on Rhythm & Booze, but I’ve got to say, if you only attend one gig in Worcester then you really should make sure it’s Jubilee Jamboree live at The Marrs Bar in a couple of weeks time.
Their are a number of reasons I feel so passionate about the event, firstly the soiree has been curated by singer-songwriter and current Robinson lead guitarist, Wes Dance, he has managed to hand-pick a number of the best and intriguing acts our area has to offer. From the stunning electro-pop of Twinkle Echo to the feral rock of Das Sexy Clap via the radio baiting, indie-folk stylings of Robinson, Wes has crafted a wonderfully eclectic mix that should find favour with music lovers the county over.
One of the other s that Jubilee Jamboree is worthy of your attention is that the five pound entry fee (a bargain for a line-up of this quality!!!) will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society, a fantastic charity that help support the sufferers of the alzheimers as well as their families, a brilliantly worthy cause, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Everyone has a long weekend, with bank holiday Monday and the Jubilee, so what better way tp kick start you’re sabbatical from work by checking out the hottest line-up of the year.
Das Sexy Clap are a duo hailing from my hometown of Worcester, comprising of Chris Wemyss and musical partner Katy Birch.
