Do the Festival Thing at the Penn Festival, Buckinghamshire

Comments Off on Do the Festival Thing at the Penn Festival, Buckinghamshire

A little known fact about Do The Green Thing co-founder Andy Hobsbawm is that he used to be in a “spectacularly unsuccessful” (his words, not mine) rock band called Tin Gods, a number of years ago.

How long ago exactly? He’d rather not go into that level of detail but here’s a then and now shot as a clue – it’s fair to say that the economy hasn’t been the only thing receding in the intervening years ;-)

Anyway, the Tin Gods are playing their first public gig for over 20 years (ooops, I gave it away) at the Penn Festival next month and we felt that this seminal rock moment simply couldn’t pass unannounced on the blog.

In honour of the occasion, the lovely Penn Festival people have given Do The Green Thing a family weekend ticket with camping (worth £168, oh yes) which you can try and win in our fabulous festival competition.

Plus Green Things can get a 20% ‘Friends & Family’ discount until midnight on June 24th.

It’s only rock ‘n’ roll but we do rather like it.

Ps. If the Tin Gods’ 80s Psychedelic-Furs-meets-The Waterboys-at-a-party-with-The-Clash heads down rockathon isn’t enough for you (or indeed, is way too much for you), Andy will also be playing a set with considerably mellower Americana act Kate Ellis on the same bill.
