This Is The Kit

+ Gina Birch

This is the Kit

Singer-songwriter and musician Kate Stables aka This Is The Kit is back, performing her greatest works which contain candid, tonal embraces that continue to evolve through time. 

In today's fast-paced mid-apocalyptic world, it can feel like a waste of time to speak about time at all. Why dwell on the past when we could just live in the present because the future won't shut up about how bad it's going to be?

This Is The Kit provides a joyful antidote to this current point in our confusing history. Stables' swirling melodies invite you to gather together and savour, to appreciate continuing to be here at all, and relish in the act of time-wasting.

Producing music that places companionship at a premium, Stables is joined on the night by Rozi Plain, Jamie Whitby-Coles, Neil Smith, Jesse VernonLorenzo PratiPete Judge and Sam Hayler.

Support on the night comes from punk icon Gina Birch of The Raincoats
