Music Editor Thom Dent previews an intimate show from Birmingham indie heroes Peace, playing the Sunflower Lounge in collaboration with Jack Daniels and Music Venue Trust
Jack Daniel’s today announces a new partnership with the Music Venue Trust, to host an intimate homecoming gig featuring Peace at Birmingham’s own Sunflower Lounge on April 9th. Continuing the brand’s ongoing support for independent music, 100% of the ticket price will be going to the Music Venue Trust, a charity created to protect the UK live music network by securing the long-term future of iconic grassroots venues.
Over the course of two critically-acclaimed albums, Peace have firmly established themselves as a huge draw on the live circuit. Another exciting chapter will be added to their story with the imminent release of their new album Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll. Peace honed their sound in Birmingham, where they’ll play the Sunflower Lounge. Inspired by the grit and glamour of New York dive bars, the Sunflower Lounge has been showcasing the best underground, breaking and local talent since 2002.
Bringing the band back to their hometown, the show will be a rare opportunity to see one of UK’s hottest indie rock bands playing to 100 people in the city that made them. The gig is part of a three date, mini-tour this April which includes Circa Waves at Liverpool’s EBGBs (5th) and Band of Skulls at Southampton’s The Joiners (25th). Jack Daniel’s recognises the importance of where you come from; every drop of Jack Daniel’s is made in Lynchburg Tennessee, the birthplace and centre of its distilling tradition for over 150 years.
Tickets for the show go on sale from midday Friday 2nd March and will be available from here.
