Oxjam Unplugged, 20:00–22:30 Paul Carbuncle at Middle Street Resource Centre
About Paul Carbuncle:
Trad folk songs, punk folk songs, shanties, cheery murder ballads, some well-diguised Elizabethan smut, and a little contemporary social commentary. Begins with 6 strings, usually ends up with 3 or 4.

The Beestonian is running a new piece on Oxjam, on page 15, featuring details of the upcoming Unplugged event.
The venue is Middle Street Resource Centre, which you might think is somewhat unlikely, but it's actually a lovely setting for the small scale event, catering for about 80 people seated cabaret style. There'll be a licensed bar plus soft drinks, coffee and snacks. Plus it's only a 5 minute walk from the Interchange or buses (Indigo, 36, Y36) and the tram stop.
On the bill is folk punker Paul Carbuncle who was a great hit at last year's Takeover, where he played three sets in as many venues. Also performing will be local favourite and Oxjam totem Emma Bladon Jones — such a fabulous singer-songwrite, as if you didn't know!
We'll also be introducing two young singer-songwriters, Matt Humphries and Andrew Tucker (who is lead singer and songwriter for Ivoryserfs). Listen out for their unusual covers. Finally, completing the line-up is Dave Mooney, who combines his own songs about his travels in the east with covers from the skiffle and tea dance eras.
