A spanking good time at the 2013 Oxjam Launch Party
Exeter's newest funk band, Electric Spank, are topping the bill at the launch party for Oxjam 2013 at the Exeter Phoenix. The first of a series of gigs taking place in our fair city as part of an Oxfam musical take over, the 29 May event will not disappoint. Fronted by the unstoppable Lucy Rice, of Melosa fame, with guitar by the insatiably funky Alastiar Toms, Electric Spank's last gig at the Lamb Inn, nr Crediton was a phenomenal mix of funky as originals and rock solid covers to bring happiness to your ear holes.
Next October, Oxfam GB will be raising funds with 60 music festivals throughout the country. The Exeter event will be on 19th-20th October comprising many events right across the city. There will also be fundraising events prior to the Takeover so keep your eyes peeled! Follow them on Twitter @oxjamexeter2013 and like them on Facebook.
Pop along to the event to hear more and more importantly have a good time! If you dig it, them you could make friends and get involved. They're currently looking for volunteers, bands/artists, venues, security, fundraising ideas and more.
