These First Aid Kits Must be Glitched
4th August 2016
No matter how many first aid kits we throw at him, Christopher still isn't feeling well enough to perform live. Therefore Monday's gig at The Rainbow will be as a duo again. Just to reiterate from before; nothing is cancelled and we will still be bringing all the usual Dead Happy charm you know and love. So for hopefully just one more time, come and see freaky disco metal's answer to the finest musical duo that ever lived: Robson & Jerome
24th July 2016
On 30th July 2016 we're heading back to the awesome Cogs Bar in Birmingham to force some freaky disco metal down people who never asked for its throats. They'll enjoy it really. As will we. Really interesting venue if you've not been - highly recommend a visit.
Event info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1731059550487058/
Artwork kindly knocked up by Emma Channell
14th July 2016
Disco can be a wonderful thing. Too much disco can be dangerous. Christopher will unfortunately be stepping down for the next few shows with Dead Happy due to illness. Shows affected as of todays date are:
Saturday 17th July - Flapper
Saturday 23rd July - SOPHIE charity gig in Portsmouth
Saturday 30th July - Cogs Bar (Birmingham)
But fear not! We will be continuing as a duo and no shows have been cancelled. Feel free to contact us for more information if needed.
