Musical mayhem has been promised across Birmingham as part of this year's Oxjam, including a special No.11 bus service that will pick up performing artists on its route around the city.
This Sunday (October 3) will see the No.11 set off from the Hare & Hounds, in Kings Heath, on what is believed to be Europe’s longest urban bus route, making 11 stops along the way, to pick up musical entertainment to perform on the bus.
The trip will end up back at the Hare & Hounds where The Soul Food project will be serving up a Sunday roast and there'll be a post-bus gig with local favourites Misty's Big Aventure, Miss Haliwell and The Courtesey Group..
Tickets will cost £11 (including bus ticket, food and entrance to the gig at the Hare & Hounds) and are available from www.oxjambrum.org.uk.
Gig-only tickets are available for £4.
The Green Bus Company has donated use of one of their fleet for the day and it it hoped that event sponsor GotSeeN.com will live stream the entertainment from the bus, which is equipped with WiFi.
On Saturday, October 16, OxjamBrum Takeover will see live music events at numerous venues in the city.
With sets from Tantrums, Isolated Atoms, Bronze Medals, Lady Fortune, Arcadian Kicks, This Burning Age, Cajole Cajole, The Heels, Tom Peel and many many more, it's 12 hours of non-stop live music.
The Victoria, Island Bar, The Yardbird, The Flapper, The Prince of Wales and Cafe Blend will play host to the best the Birmingham scene has to offer, with top DJs also providing sounds between the bands.
Tickets cost £6 in advance (more on the door) and for that you'll get a wristband which will give access to all the venues throughout the day and night. All artists are playing for free and all the money raised from the night goes to help Oxfam fight poverty across the world.
Tickets are availbale from www.oxjambrum.org.uk/takeover
GotSeeN.com will be streaming the Takeover live from Island Bar on the 16th October so if you can't make it down on the day, you can watch some of the live acts from the comfort of your living room.
