Chvrches confirm charity show

By | Published on Monday 25 November 2013


Turns out that, in addition to taking a healthy stance on sexism, Scottish pop trio Chvrches are also kind and giving.

The band will play a charity show staged by TYCI, the feminist collective led by lead singer Lauren Mayberry, at Glasgow’s SWG3 on 21 Dec. Profits will go to the Ataxia Telangiectasia Society, which is dedicated to helping and advising families affected by AT, a rare neurodegenerative disease.

Explaining what TYCI is and does to NME, Mayberry says: “I set it up because I felt like, as a woman in a band, there wasn’t a support network for me. Not like I needed support specifically, but I wanted to create an environment where that’s celebrated.
