Never miss another 'Friendly Fires' show
Friendly Fires + Erol Alkan + Cheatahs + Sexbeat DJs + Ben Cornershop + The Holy Trinity DJs + Mat Horne
The friends and family of recently deceased 29 year old Adam Connolly have joined together to organise an event to celebrate his life as well as raise awareness and funds to prevent male suicide, which has recently seen a rise again in the UK.
The event will be compered by comedian Mat Horne and headlined by mercury prize nominated Friendly Fires which features Adam's flatmate Jack Savidge. The band will perform alongside a number of other live acts and DJs including Erol Alkan (Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve) who together represent some of Adam's favourite musical artists and friends.
All proceeds will go to an appropriate charity selected by Adam's family.
Friendly Fires lie somewhere between the poppiness of Snap!, the funkiness of Prince, and the electronic dance-iness of Daft Punk. Friendly Fires were the first unsigned band ever to play Transmission on Channel 4, shown on 9th November 2007. Their self-titled debut album was nominated for the 2009 Mercury Awards and the band have since gone from strength to strength, nominated for two Brit Awards in 2010, and releasing their Top 10 album, 'Pala', in 2011.
Friendly Fires tour dates
Winner of Muzik Magazine's Best Breakthrough DJ with high profile residencies at Bugged Out!, The Boutique and 21st Century Body Rockers. The only DJ besides John Peel to have the crowd at Fabric chant his name after his set.
Erol Alkan tour dates
London blissed out indie-rock four-piece signed to Wichita Recordings. Their sound harks back to Creation bands. Think Swervedriver, My Bloody Valentine’s two classic albums, the pop-tinged psychedelia of The Boo Radleys and Teenage Fanclub, with hints of Sugar and Dinosaur Jr thrown into the mix. An electrifying blend of raucous guitars and breathy vocals, honey-dripped with ennui and emotion.
Cheatahs tour dates
