Yaz Alexander 'live'

Very short notice, as I only heard 'bout it today...Yaz Alexander is playing at the Manchester Bob Marley One Love Reggae Festival tomorrow (Saturday 24 June) at Fallowfield, Manchester. The festival kicks off at 1pm and lasts til 9pm, it costs a fiver to get in and on the bill as well as Yaz will be Italist (who played at Yaz's Newtown gig a few weeks ago and is a very promising singer), Abelwell Foundation, Angola, Kwabena and many more. Looks like the weather will hold out as well, and its an opportunity to give yourself a break from the World Cup footy before Sunday's important showdown, England versus Ecuador.

Next up for Yaz will be an appearance on stage in Centenary Square in the center of Birmingham on Saturday 8 July to celebrate the release of a new CD by Gotham-Records called Christmas In July. Yaz expects to be on stage around 8pm and will sing her contribution to the release, an original composition called At Christmas. No doubt she'll be supported by her two backing singers Anne-Marie and Emma B, and the latest I hear is that she's seriously looking to put together a female backing band.
