Freedom Folk-Punk: All In Vain / Rootweave / Sage Against The Machine / Efa Supertramp / Mischief Bruno
Come along for an evening of folk-punk at this legendary anarchist bookshop hidden down an alley in Whitechapel.
The gig will start just after 6pm, so please come along at the beginning to support the opening acts.
There is a strict curfew so everything will be wrapped up by 10pm. Suggested donation is £5-10 to cover artists travel costs - we have artists coming from Portugal, Ireland, Liverpool and Brighton...
In terms of accessibility - Freedom Bookshop is step-free, however the toilet is up a flight of stairs. https://freedompress.org.uk/about-freedom/

ALL IN VAIN
Anarcho Folk Punk project. Generally based around vocals, banjo, and foot percussion. Sometimes featuring fiddle, bouzouki, accordion, amongst other things depending on who's about. Rowdy, stompy, politically-charged thrashers to slow, emotional, doomy dirges.
Rootweave is made up of Em Swift, and everything and everyone that has ever flowed in and out of their heart. They tie together stories of grief, curiosity, loss, ancestry, friendship and exploration of the pysche and the wild world. They play most of the instruments heard on the recordings, and love to blur the lines between genres.
SAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
Trashy pop folk to make punks cry.
This Welsh folk-punk grrrl comes armed with a battered acoustic guitar and a powerful voice. She has toured extensively across Europe – appearing at festivals, bars, squats, venues, living rooms and street corners to perform her songs in both Welsh and English. With just her guitar, some well-placed anger and a whole load of love to give she will bring a tear to your eye and some fire in your heart.
MISCHIEF BRUNO (from Sharp Knives)
Bruno from the amazing band Sharp Knives doing a set of Mischief Brew covers.
