The Sharp Darts Target The Bear
The Sharp Darts are playing The Bear Tavern as part of a charity gig this Saturday in aid of Birmingham Children's Hospital Neo-Natal Ward so welovebearwood caught up with Mark of The Sharp Darts for his rundown of the gig.
“First up is local man Liam Garland and his band Little Liam. Inspired by many of the same bands and artists as us, you can expect some quality tunes from them. We played with Little Liam last year at Bearwood Shuffle in Lightwoods Park and they certainly entertained. You can find out more and find links to their music here.
Up next are a band that we have been waiting to play with again for quite some time, we first played with Wolverhampton Mod band The Town in 2010 at The Rainbow, they were great then and are even better now. They have a great mix of old school and modern classics that compliment their original tunes beautifully. Definitely a band to keep you eye on. Find out more here.
Main support are a band that I've never had the pleasure of seeing live, Open to Fire. Jay and a bunch of our mates caught up with these guys when we last played an acoustic gig at the Adam & Eve, I'm not too sure if they played that night as I had to duck out early and head off to work after out set. In any case, that meeting with Nat & Claire and the rest of the More Shots than Fingers team (who are organising this night) led to them being on the bill. You can check them out on facebook.
The Sharp Darts will be headlining the night, we'll let you know times nearer the time. The night kicks off at 7pm on the 18th February at The Bear Tavern (500 Bearwood Road, Bearwood, Smethwick) and is £3 to get in, all of which goes to Birmingham Childrens Hospital Neo Natal Ward.
It's gonna be a great night and we're hoping to raise as much money as we can, so come on down and show your support!”
P.S Have a listen to The Sharp Darts - Paul Weller would be very impressed!
