Punk Rock Raises Pounds

2 minute read

A post-punk rock band are donating 50% of their profits from their upcoming Bristol gig to support the continued work of BDP.

Playing in Bristol for the first time, the London based band The Fallen Women are an all-female The Fall karaoke band, who will be playing this Saturday evening at the Exchange in Old Market.

Following the death of The Fall’s legendary frontman, Mark E. Smith, earlier this year, promoters of The Fallen Women have generously decided to help raise money for our continued work to support people with problematic alcohol and drug use.

Mark E Smith had a long battle with addiction throughout his life, and therefore we have decided to donate 50% of profits to Bristol Drugs Project who are helping others in a similar situation.

The Fallen Women will be playing a repertoire of 30 songs and will be inviting everyone “from seasoned performers to those who’ve never been on stage before or even sung a note”. To find out more, visit their Facebook event.

The Fallen Women
Saturday 14th April
Exchange at 7:30pm

Thanks to The Fallen Women and their promoters for their generosity and support to our continued work to support some of the most marginalised and vulnerable people in Bristol.
