Counting Coins + Ska Pete The Uplifter + The Stiff Joints
+ special guests Ska Pete The Uplifter
& The Stiff Joints
It’s been way too long since we played The Adelphi so we’ve put together an extra special line-up to make up for it…
Opening the show is one of our favourite people – Ska Pete The Uplifter. As a member of the now sadly defunct Breadchasers he rocked the Adelphi more than once, and since then he’s been performing solo all over the place. The man lives and breathes everything 2tone, offbeat, and skankalicious, and his brand of uplifting ska is the perfect way to get you into the mood. Arrive early, do not miss this!
What better way to go after a one-man-band than an eleven-piece army that might not even fit on the god damn stage… it’s the long-awaited return one of our all-time favourite bands – The Stiff Joints. Based in Kidderminster (the K-hole…) these boys take the 2tone tradition that was born in their midlands stomping ground and drag it into the 21st century with a forward-looking fresh new approach to the genre. At times political, at others hilariously funny – and always compelling from the first note to the last.
These two acts should get you super hyped for a Counting Coins set… It always works for us!
£6 tickets will be available in advance from The Adelphi, The People’s Republic (Newland Ave), Pie on Newland, or directly from the band.
£7 on the door while stocks last – arrive early to avoid disappointment – Doors 8pm
