AN ALTERNATIVE band from Spalding will be putting on a charity show at Blackfriars Theatre on Saturday.

The concert aims to raise money for the venue, with all proceeds going back to Blackfriars.

Fake Theatre is a three-piece rock band featuring musicians known as A.D (on lead vocals and guitar), The Low Down (on bass and keys) and Tom Ayre (on drums, percussion and backing vocals).

The band have been working on their own material for a year.

They promise a sound that ‘builds on the foundation of traditional three-piece band instruments’ – and A.D said they have added their own take on these elements.

They will be playing at the Spain Lane venue from 7.30pm.

A.D said: “We have been working on our own material for just over a year now and are enjoying a growing success because we firmly believe that a professional approach to all aspects of our business is paramount.”

In February the band recorded its first self-titled EP at Chapel Studios, South Thoresby, securing the producer who worked on the Arctic Monkeys’ debut album.

The concert will mark the first stop on the band’s Our Own Devices tour.

A.D added: “We are committed, energetic and self-motivated and we always aim to deliver a show as opposed to playing a gig.

“This is not a hobby for us, but a labour of love.”

The band are also being promoted by the BBC through it’s Introducing programme, which has seen them played several times on BBC Lincolnshire and had them in the live-lounge for a performance.

Fake Theatre members say they are proud of the achievements they have already made, including raising money for the Red Cross Tsunamai Fund though their first single Future Tense.

It will also feature three other local acts - ProJect, Laura Jouska and Stephen Tanner.

Tickets £6.50.
