Aerials Up are to play a special fundraising show for their percussionist, Debbie Morton.
The East Kilbride-formed act are getting together especially for a gig on Sunday November 5, for a show at Bloc in Glasgow, the band’s members now as far-flung as Cornwall.
The 10-piece formed around 2010 from the ashes of The Ads and released a variety of singles including ‘The Old and the Innocent’ and an EP, ‘Stay Awake’, recorded a session for Vic Galloway on Radio 1, and as well as an appearances at T in the Park and Wickerman, supported Snow Patrol in front of 30,000 people at Bellahouston Park.
Last year Debbie was sadly diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, which has now spread to her lungs. The show aims to raise funds to help Debbie explore alternative treatments which will hopefully allow her to spend as much time as possible with her three- and five-year-old children.
As well as live music with special guests to be announced, and DJs from legendary promoters Detour, there will be a raffle with a remarkable amount of prizes available – more than 70 at time of writing.
