Up’n’coming Southend roots rock band The Lucky Strikes play a free gig this Friday (6 May) at CORE, a unique live music venue and arts centre in the heart of Hackney.
The gig serves as a benefit for the venue’ owners, local mental health charity Core Arts, which specialises in supporting individuals with mental health problems through the creative arts. Also featuring Hackney boy/girl folk-pop quartet Troubadour Rose, this is one of a series of monthly events giving Core’s users – including bands, singer-songwriters, MCs and poets - the opportunity to perform before an audience.
Formed in 2008 and fronted by Duke & The King alumnus Matt Boulter, The Lucky Strikes have recently released their third album Gabriel, Forgive My 22 Sins on happening East London label Stovepony to rave reviews in the national press and considerable airplay on specialist radio. Their eponymous debut album is reissued through Stovepony on Monday 9 May.
