The Southsea Christmas Covers Party returns for it’s 3rd consecutive year all in aid of the Rowans Hospice, Purbrook.
The premise is simple: 8 bands, each with three cover songs in different styles. No serious stuff, no skills at all and gags galore. Featuring on the night will be a well stuffed Christmas stocking full of musical treats from the following:
Watashi Calcutecs – Asian hot sauce on maths tool shocker.
Battery Hens – More guitar pedals than Southsea has hipsters.
Capsized – Like the size of a crap, but not.
Contra – Not Dragon Eye Morrison, but just as old.
Protein Window – Fat lads eating chicken.
Red Seals – Aquatic ginger mammals.
Shooting Fish – Captain Birdseye infused punk.
Udy and the Brailettes – Bad taste folk pop with girls (apparently)
There will also be a Mega Raffle that has some seriously awesome prizes including a flight over Pompey and the IOW, a full professional photo shoot from Diana Goss, free art from Portsmouth Creative Movement artists such as Los Dave, Mydog Sighs, Leila Bobayla, Rusty Sheriff, and others, PLUS extra special secret prizes on the night. Each punter gets a free raffle ticket on entry, and additional ones are a £1 each if you want to increase your chances of winning.
