Boy George and The Chemical Brothers sing Get Tested! Get Covered

boy george1The Hepatitis C Trust’s GET TESTED! campaign is collaborating with Cover To Cover to rasie awareness of Hepititis C. On Thursday 26th November a one off celebrity extravaganza will take West London’s The Paradise by storm and will see some of the biggest names in fashion and music performing live onstage.

Together they have pooled their resources and come up with a fantastic line up of artists who will bring you their favourite covers. Upstairs the likes of Boy George, David Mcalmont, Dot Allison and Sadie Frost will perform covers of their favourite songs backed by a live band.

Downstairs the Cover To Cover residents Sean Rowley and Christian Laing, Ed Simons (The Chemical Brothers), Justin Robertson, Alan McGee and Dan Williams (Jezebel Sound System) will be playing their favourite cover records.chemical brothers1
Cover to Cover is the brainchild of two well-known music obsessive’s, Sean Rowley (Guilty Pleasures) and Christian Laing (Buttoned Down Disco) which takes place at the Queen of Hoxton each month.

The GET TESTED! campaign encourages people to get tested for hepatitis C if they think they have been at risk. In 2010 GET TESTED! will be raising money to employ a blood borne virus nurse and a bus to tour the country testing people in hard to reach areas.

GET TESTED! 2009 was such a success we are doing it all over again and looking for people to sign up for the whacky races challenge from the UK to Ibiza ending with a big party in collaboration with Pete Tong’s International Music Summit.

Expect the unexpected with an unusually eclectic line up who will be sure to bring a madly diverse night of music…

Boy George
Ed Simons (Chemical Brothers)
Sadie Frost
David Mcalmont
