Help My Pup! Benefit gig for Charlie’s leg! – Tonight 7pm

 CHARLIE’S LEG

 So, basically, Charlie has a deformed leg, and if it isn’t operated on then he could develop arthritis and lots of pain. The PDSA can’t do the operation because they don’t have the necessary specialist or enough money for corrective surgery, so this gig is to help.

*MARK AYLING – Raw, Aggressive, Angry, Acoustic Punk from Scotland.

*NICODEMUS REUBEN – He’s not very good at making things out of wood or bricks or metal so he makes things out of words. Excellent spoken word.
