Black Midi, New Road comes together again to contribute to the saving of Brixton live music venue The Windmill

Black Midi, New Road is the perfect collaboration between two of Britain's most exciting and dynamic bands at the moment - Black Country, New Road, and Black Midi. Both bands have a penchant for experimental and sprawling music, and have often married their sounds together on stage in the past occasional live performance.

A venue that was regularly host to these performances was The Windmill, in Brixton. The Windmill is often highly regarded as being one of the most prominent formational spaces for modern bands to cut their teeth and make a name for themselves, having put on many music nights for an array of various sounds and styles.

In between lockdowns, The Windmill was able to host 77 live shows, but due to a second wave of Covid restrictions on live music, the venue has sadly joined many others in danger of permanently closing altogether.

Tickets for the Black Midi, New Road live streamed show are available for £5 from The Windmill’s bandcamp page, with all funds going towards helping The Windmill to remain open and in business. In addition to this, The Windmill has collaborated with Team Lose It to set up an auction of items donated by veteran bands of the venue, and is also selling its own merchandise, and an in-between-lockdown album with a batch of new songs by those who have graced the venue’s stages.

Last year, Black Midi, New Road came together to spread some Christmas cheer, with a performance of ‘White Christmas’ and a festive rendition of a Fontaines D.C. song ‘The Boys in The Christmas Hats’. Expect similar fun this time round, complete with some more unexpected surprises, and likely a chaotic jam or two. If you’re a fan of either band, or even just feel like supporting a great venue, then don’t miss this.
