The Badge's Single. The story.

Fellow Splinter and founder of The Badge Jeff Slate has sent in a rough mix of the band's upcoming single, the cracking "Row Along." You can hear it streaming here on the blog exclusively. Jeff will also be appearing at two George Harrison tribute shows dubbed “For George” at Liverpool’s St. George Hall on Saturday, August 1, 2009. While in Liverpool Jeff is going to make return appearances to Billy Butler’s Friday, July 31st, afternoon BBC Merseyside show as well as on renown Beatles historian and BBC presenter Spencer Leigh’s Saturday evening program on August 1st.

Jeff’s going to be busy... His appearance on Spencer Leigh’s show will come in between the afternoon and evening performances at the Harrison tribute. Jeff will also be treating London to two acoustic shows. He will appear at Islington’s Hope & Anchor (207 Upper Street, Islington) at 8:30 pm on Thursday, July 30th, followed by a secret, closing-time show that same night at an intimate venue to be announced shortly.

The "For George" performances are set for 3:00 pm and 7:30 pm on August 1, 2009, the 38th anniversary of Harrison’s trailblazing Concerts for Bangladesh, the first large-scale musical event dedicated to charity awareness, which took place in 1971. Proceeds from the show will benefit Harrison’s Material World Charitable Foundation. The show takes place alongside an exhibition of photographs and memorabilia dedicated to the former Beatle.
