This is the first event of the summer BAKC tour helping raise awareness for the campaign.
The BAKC tour will be popping up at venues around London featuring some very special bands which we're keeping under our hat for now!
All profits from the events will be going into the BAKC trust fund which will be providing local youth groups with music equipment.
For more info on how this is done go to www.bakc.co.uk
Sunday May 31st sees the launch of the tour at the Buffalo Bar which is a great venue just outside Highbury & Islington tube.
Doors are from 8pm - first band on shortly after so get your sunday drinking boots on and come see some quality music.
Please show your support for this campaign and join the BAKC bandwagon for what is going to be a summer of memorable gigs!
