On May 26th The Library in Leeds will be hosting a charity gig in aid of Music Minds Matter, a charity helpline for the UK’s music community, which provides trained staff offering emotional support, advice and therapy to those suffering with mental health problems.
Ticket cost £5 on the door and £5.50 online, with all proceeds from ticket sales going directly to Music Minds Matter.
Customers can expect electric performances from Indie Rock bands such as headliners Atlanta House, The Common Dogs and four-piece retro power pop group, The Harriets.
Located in the heart of Leeds, The Library is home to live events and gigs by recognisable entertainers, thanks to a 200 person capacity venue, which sits above the pub and includes a separate bar.
Music Minds Matter intends to use the proceeds of the gig to improve its services and increase awareness of mental illness in the UK. The organisation believes that, with the right support, sufferers can begin their journey to recovery.
Phil Clay, General Manager of The Library, said: “The charity is important to us because the life of a musician can often be stressful and isolating and mental health in the music industry is something that needs a more vocal and obvious support network. What better way to raise money for the cause, than through the power of music.”
