A concert in aid of C.A.L.M (Campaign Against Living Miserably) held on Battersea Barge


Apr 05 2015 17:00 - 22:00


Till Deaf Do Us Party and Braintrust are honoured to be working with CALM. to announce a stripped down concert featuring the likes of Sam Duckworth, The Xcerts, Tall Ships, Katie Malco and Matt Emery inside the intimate surroundings of Battersea Barge, held on Sunday 5 April 2015.

The Campaign Against Living Miserably, or CALM, is a registered charity which exists to prevent male suicide in the UK. In 2013, male suicide accounts for 78% of all suicides and is the single biggest cause of death in men aged 20 – 45 in England and Wales.

The lineup will consist of intimate and stripped down sets from:

Sam Duckworth (formerly known as Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly)
The Xcerts
Tall Ships
Katie Malco

Matt Emery

Since retiring his Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly stage name with a celebration headline show at Kentish Town Forum last September after ten years of music, Sam Duckworth has put online two new tracks '1986' and 'Forward Planning' and is gearing up for his second album through Alcopop Records later this year.

The Xcerts are a distorted pop band living in Brighton, having relocated from Aberdeen. Their third LP There Is Only You was released at the end of last year after extensive touring with the likes of Brand New, Biffy Clyro and Manchester Orchestra. We're delighted to have an acoustic set before their headline tour later in April.

2012 saw the release of the bold debut album from Tall Ships Everything Touching through Big Scary Monsters. An album of romance, discussed in the scientific terms of fissures and tectonic shifts, it was a mean feat arching the gap between post rock and indie rock leanings.

Katie Malco is a Scottish-born London based songwriter who releases her music through Alcopop Records. Having toured the UK and mainland Europe extensively, both solo and as part of a band that includes ex-Reuben members, her most recent EP Tearing Ventricles was a collection of piano compositions performed live at Servant Jazz Quarters following its release in 2013.

Matt Emery

Multi-instrumentalist composer, producer and all round great guy Matt Emery formerly of Stagecoach is opening up the evening events. His music spans from minimal piano and string pieces to bigger formed string arrangements incorporating choirs, synths and drums throughout certain tracks, including elements of classical, ambient and pop music. 2015 looks bright for Matt with a debut album in the making working with producer James Kenosha (Pulled Apart By Horses/ Dry The River/Mikky Ekko)
