A SPECIAL gig will be music to the ears of the hedgehogs who are set to benefit from it.
Hedgehog-loving musician Andy Briggs, is organising the Hedge Against the Machine event, to raise money for local charity Hedgehugs.
His band Gaggle Wire, which specialises in Rage Against the Machine covers, will perform at the Hop on Bank Street, on Friday, October 26.
Other acts will include Fungazi and T’weezer.
Mr Briggs, 32, of Darnley Avenue, hopes to raise £1,000 for the charity, which provided him with advice on how to care for his pet hedgehog Rowley.
Bad weather over the summer has left the charity struggling to cope with all the hedgehogs that have ended up there. Running costs for a year can total £6,000.
Tickets for the gig cost £4 in advance and £5 on the door, and are available from the Hop.
