It's the band, but not as you know them

Hope Of The States play a special show this week for the next instalment of their eccentric clubnight.

‘Fugitives and Refugees’ takes place this Friday (October 28) at the Buffalo Bar in north London.

Appearing as Thee Hope Of The States Wooden Electrik Arkestar, the band themselves will apparently be “using whatever instruments they can lay their hands on and playing songs old, songs rare, songs lost and songs composed specifically for the night”.

The show will be recorded, to be released as a download for a soon-to-be-decided charity.

Also playing live are Neil’s Children, along with DJ sets from Hope Of The States, Type2Error, Union Fires and Idiot Green Boys.
