Gig Preview - 18th Feb - The Bear Tavern

The Sharp Darts are playing The Bear Tavern as part of a charity gig in aid of Birmingham Children's Hospital Neo-Natal Ward. Here's a bit of a run down of the other bands on the bill.

First up is local man Liam Garland and his band Little Liam. Inspired by many of the same bands and artists as us, you can expect some quality tunes from them. We played with Little Liam last year at Bearwood Shuffle in Lightwoods Park and they certainly entertained. You can find out more and find links to their music here.

Acoustic EP Launch - 18th April

The Sharp Darts upcoming Acoustic EP will be launched on the 18th of April with a free gig at The Yardbird, Birmingham!

We are very happy to announce our launch party for the acoustic EP. We still have a bit to do (a lot actually!), but we're getting to that stage where things will start to come together quickly.

Having just bought a new condenser mic, we have improved the quality of a recordings and now we can crack on and get the guitar parts and vocals tracks laid down this month.

We still haven't decided on which tracks will make the final cut, but we have a shortlist of songs to record, anything that doesn't make it will be released as either a single, or a free download.

Oxjam this weekend!

Oxjam Brum Takeover 2011 - 15th OctoberIt's the Oxjam Brum Takeover 2011 this weekend and The Sharp Darts will be doing their bit down at Sunflower Lounge!

Oxjam is held across the country and is a musical fundraiser for Oxfam. The Birmingham takeover is a great event that last year raised over £6000 for the charity.

This year will see 25 bands performing across 7 different venues on a great day/night of music. What makes it better is that a wristband is just £6 and allows you to move between the venues to check out different bands.

I went to this event last year and it was brilliant, definately worth checking out and all for a good cause! If you want to find out all the details and what bands are on, you can head over here.

If you can't make the night, there are some performances on in the daytime at some of the cities coffiee shops, so be sure to check those out if your out shopping on Saturday.
