TunA the Day's Big Benefit Night Out in August

Yup, it's true. The popular website, TunA the Day, the site dedicated to promoting unsigned and little-known artists is having an official launch party at 229TheVenue (at 229 Great Portland St, directly opposite Great Portland St tube station) on Sunday 24 August 2009 in London Town from 6.30pm.

So if you're not at a festival or out of town and find you fancy a Sunday night out (it's the Bank Holiday so no need to get up early the next day), hang out with some friendly folk, check out some new music and enjoy a beverage or two until the wee hours (the bar is licensed until 3am), then this is the night for you. And tickets are just £10 and all the profit is going to the Marine Conservation Society charity to help it save dwindling fishing stocks in and around the British Isles.

I must admit I don't know any of the artists on the night, but they all look pretty tempting to me judging by their myspace pages and the night will be ably compered by all-round nice guy comedian MacKenzie Taylor and the line-up includes:

Official Secrets Act – hotly tipped Indie popsters

Red Box Blue – top class pop/rock with a country twist

Lizzy Spit – acoustic folk from Steve Lemacq favourite

Murmur – driving guitar alt rock from Essex based 4-piece

Schwab – bonkers dance pop with serious grooves

DJ set by Millimetre – dance late into the night with top electro fusionist

So if you fancy doing your bit for marine conservation as well as having a really good night out while you're doing it, then come on down and hang with Big Ade and his TunA gang and we can be 100% Dolphin friendly together with the help of 2 bars, lots of bands, a great DJ and a 3am licence. Doors open at 6.30pm, music starts and 7pm and you can book tickets at
