A BENEFIT gig for the Rhythms of the World charity will take place at Hitchin’s Club 85 tomorrow (Saturday).

Local promoters Anonymous, Rogue and The Peel Club have pooled their resources and the stars on the night will include indie heroes Fruition, a rare local appearance from CC Smugglers, Leeds band The Killing Fields of Ontario and Everyone Always Does.

Roger King from Anonymous said: “It’s been great to get three of Hitchin’s promoters working together to put on a benefit to support Rhythms of the World, the highlight of the year on the local music scene.”

Club 85’s doors open at 7.45pm, with music starting at 8.15pm. Admission is �5 and the gig is open to anyone over the age of 16. ID will be required.
