Old timers on here will know about Lexapalooza, my involvement in it, and what it means to me. For those who missed that part of the story, here’s a brief recap. Lexapalooza is a (nearly) annual music festival that was initially set up in 2006 by my friend Lexi to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign. It’s a small, friendly, intimate show, with the focus on having a good time and raising cash for a great cause.
Heart-breakingly, Lexi lost her battle with cancer in 2007 (I wrote a song about it), but the festival lives on, now acting as a memorial for her as well as everything else.
This year’s Lexapalooza takes place in London this weekend, on Saturday March 31st, at the Boston Arms in Tufnell Park. More info about the show, the line-up and so on, can be found here.
There are a ton of great bands playing, many old friends of mine (not least Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun), and it’ll be a blast no doubt. It comes with the highest recommendation from me that I can give. Alas I won’t be there (Australia beckons) but if you can make it, you won’t regret it.
