Ed Harcourt, James Walsh, Andreya Triana and Muncie Girls are among the names set to play a special gig to celebrate 25 years of The Big Issue in London.
Along with a DJ set from Saint Etienne‘s Bob Stanley, the night at the Proud gallery in Camden will also see an exhibition of covers from over two decades and limited edition, signed work by Bryan Adams, Andrew Cotterill, Louise Haywood-Schiefer, Jeff Leyshon, Libi Pedder, Heiko Prigg and Wendy Pye available to buy – with proceeds going to The Big Issue and helping the homeless.
“The Big Issue started a publishing and cultural revolution,” said Big Issue Editor Paul McNamee. “From one magazine in London 25 years ago, we have helped thousands of people to help themselves. And we keep doing it, day after day, week after week. I’m proud to be editor of this incredible, and incredibly important, British institution.”
This year saw Ed Harcourt release his critically-acclaimed seventh album ‘Furnaces’, ahead of a handful of sold-out tour dates before he supports Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats on their upcoming UK tour. Meanwhile, Starsailor frontman James Walsh released his fourth solo album ‘Turning Point’ in 2014.
The Big Issue ‘Up from the Streets’ 25 Years of a Publishing Revolution launches at Proud Camden on 17 October. For tickets and more information, visit here.
