The Paddingtons also play the gig at Whitechapel's Rhythm Factory
Pete Doherty is set to play a tribute gig dedicated to Johnny ‘Rhythm’ Sedassy, the London gig promoter who died last month.
His nights provided a crucial (and largely unrecognised) foundation for the scene that formed in London following The Libertines‘ release of their debut album ‘Up The Bracket’.
The promoter passed away on March 16 after battling bowel cancer.
The gig is in memory of Sadassy and also to raise awareness for the Sir Michael Sobell Charity in Oxtord, where the promoter spent his final days.
All acts playing at the show are donating their fees form the gig to the Sir Michael Sobell Charity, and all door takings will also be donated to the hospice.
Tickets are £25 in advance, or £30 on the door. See Rhythmfactory.co.uk for more information.
A Justgiving.com page has also been set up, should fans wish to donate online.
