A DARK VIRTUAL CAFÉ, FOR VIRTUALLY DARK TIMES
The Some Dark Café was born during Covid lockdown, when Tom live-streamed special shows from his INSTAGRAM.
The shows were watched by thousands at the same time, and featured special guests such as KT Tunstall, Olly Knights (Turin Brakes), David Ford, Keren Ann, Justin Currie, Simon Armitage, and very nearly Fran Healy.
"A dark, virtual café for virtually dark times"... the imaginary little café provided a shared collective space for a little light relief.
Now in the real world, Tom performs the occasional show under the banner of The Some Dark Café - to carry on that spirit of solidarity and resilience in a world that gets darker by the day.
But the world is not the news, and people are kinder and stronger than we are led to believe.
Everyone is welcome at The Some Dark Café.
