SLAG (Serious Ladies of Art & Gigs) MAG is back!

We finally return with issue number 2 with a party at the Hare to celebrate!

Thursday 29th August
Playing live:
Ruth Kokumo (full band)
Armed with her band Ruth Kokumo brings an energy to the stage that cant be matched. She captures attention with her raw vocals and rhythmic blues, similar to the likes of Nina Simone. You can catch her most weekends performing around Birmingham with her band The Ark and on her socials @ruthkokumo

Bryony Williams (solo)
"Like Anna Fox Rochinski, Kim Gordon or even Girlpool, Williams can display fragility, anger and sadness all within one song."
- BrumNotes Magazine.
