Orange Goblin Announce Benefit Show For Team Rock Staff

orange-goblinHaving raised nearly £60,000 in less than two days for the 73 former employees of music publisher, Team Rock, British metallers Orange Goblin have announced an intimate fundraising gig at The Black Heart in Camden, London for Thursday January 5th, 2017.

Ben Ward has said this regarding the show:

“A few days ago when I heard the news that my good friends at Team Rock were being made redundant with no pay during Christmas week I just felt that I had to do something. That night my girlfriend and I set up the Just Giving page and within 2 days we had raised almost £60,000 and we were blown away by the response and generosity of people all over the world. To help raise even more funds, Orange Goblin will play a very special show at the Black Heart in Camden on January 5th.

This will be a minimum £10 donation to get in and admission will be on a first come, first served basis as the venue only holds 120 people! All proceeds for the night will go to the Just Giving page in hope that we can give something back to the journalists that have supported our band and our scene for many, many years.”

  1. I know you don’t do Facebook, but some of your readers might be interested to know there’s a Facebook group “Bring Back Prog Magazine”. I’m not sure how aspirational the “bring back” part is, but it’s a place to moan and reminisce if you’re into such things…

    I don’t know how to give a URL to a Facebook group, but I’m sure that anyone who searches for the group by name will find it.

    A google search for “Bring Back Prog Magazine” will deliver the URL as the first item. Of course, as a non-facebook user, I can’t read anyones comments …. unless I change the URL to m.facebook.com/(etc.) . Then I’m in …. for now. It is probably a dodgy back-door.
