Keith Goldhanger’s Things To Do Festival #2  April 18th 2020.

At the start of April 2020 Keith Goldhanger sat on his sofa whilst a selection of his favourite bands performed from their own living rooms and bedrooms. Many of us joined him and watched on our laptops and phones from our own favourite chairs and this Saturday (18th April) he’s managed to collate another impressive selection of people who will entertain those of us hungry for some live music.

Things to do Festival was intended to be a one off.
Then a few more bands I know came forward and then I began messaging a few bands I’d like to see and then Things to do Festival #2 was curated. It may be the last for a while, everyone’s doing them at the moment and those doing them are generally quite happy just doing a couple. It’s therefore a pleasure to announce that the next Things to do Festival will take place on Saturday 18th April and yet again a great selection of acts have come forward to participate.

David Murdoch (currently with Murman and previously with The Art Club) will open up the proceedings at 17.00hrs before (half of) Hope from Germany (17.30hs) will be performing a stripped down set of songs once we synchronise our watches correctly. London based Scrounge (18.00hrs) usually a duo but one suspects only half the band may be performing on this before James Dale From Goldheart Assembly (18.30hrs) will provide the first of two performances from members of this band.

At 19.00hrs members of China Bears will be streaming followed by Matt Abbot (Skint & Demoralised) at 19.30hrs and members of London based Phantom Isle at 20.00hrs.

John Herbert from Goldheart Assembly takes to the living room carpet at 20.30hrs and Joel from Jekyll will provide the closing soundtrack live from his current abode in Blackpool.

Puff up a cushion and watch the proceedings at   between 16:55 hrs – 21.30hrs this Saturday 18th April.

These are those bands in their full glory that you may wish to check out once we get allowed out of our houses again.

Keith Goldhanger -- Spent the 90's as a frontman with London noisemerchants HEADBUTT - spent the 80's in "Peel favourites" BASTARD KESTREL. Spent a few years mashing up tunes and remixing bands as HIDEOUS WHEEL INVENTION. Is often out and about getting in the way of things and bumping his head on low ceilings - drinks real ale, takes photo's has made a few short films. Will give your band the time of day but will dislike any band that balances full pints of alcohol on the top of guitar amps (Not keen on lead singers that wear hats either).
