Hot Chip to perform a secret gig


Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Wednesday, March 18, 2009

Hot Chip will join the Filthy Dukes, Dodgy and The Bluetones to perform at a series of secret gigs in London to raise money for charity.

The band, who have had hits with Over And Over and Ready For The Floor, will kick off the series of concerts for Crisis, the homeless charity, on Tuesday May 5. Dodgy and The Bluetones will be taking to a secret stage on Sunday May 17 and the Filthy Dukes, Bombay Bicycle Club and The Pipettes will also be performing later in the series of concerts.



The series of nine hidden gigs throughout May and June offer fans the chance to see bands in intimate, unusual spaces and the venue will remain hidden until the day of the gig, when a text or email message will be sent to the ticket holders, revealing its location.By withholding details until the last minute, Crisis aim to raise awareness of the situation facing hidden homeless people, who often don't know where they will end up each night.
Al Doyle from Hot Chip said: "Whether they would like to admit it or not, most people have an image in their head of a 'homeless person', the old-fashioned and unhelpful figure of the down-and-out, who in fact is entirely unrepresentative of the majority of homeless people in the UK. These are the hidden homeless, who for a variety of often very complex reasons have no regular accommodation. We hope our gig for Crisis will raise awareness of their plight and are very happy to help the cause."
