Hot Chip, The Bluetones to play hidden gigs for homeless charity 'Crisis'
Bands including Hot Chip, Bombay Bicycle Club and The Bluetones are set to play a series of 'hidden gigs' in London in support of homeless charity Crisis.

In total, nine hidden shows are set to take place in unusual venues throughout the capital this May and June. Other bands confirmed to be taking part are Filthy Dukes, The Pipettes and Dodgy.

Details of the gigs will be withheld until the last minute. Crisis say that by doing this, they hope to draw similarities to the situation faced by many homeless people on a daily basis regarding accommodation.

In a statement, Hot Chip's Al Doyle praised Crisis.

He said: "Whether they would like to admit it or not, most people have an image in their head of a 'homeless person', the old-fashioned and unhelpful figure of the down-and-out, who in fact is entirely unrepresentative of the majority of homeless people in the UK.

"These are the hidden homeless, who for a variety of often very complex reasons have no regular accommodation. We hope our gig for Crisis will raise awareness of their plight, and are very happy to help the cause."

Hot Chip will kick off the gigs on May 5, while Dodgy and The Bluetones play on May 17.

Tickets for the gigs go on sale at 11am (GMT) on March 18, and all proceeds go to help Crisis. See Crisis.org.uk/hidden for more information.
