Pics from Saturday night (Buffalo Bar, London, 13/04/13) taken by Akbar Ali! Can we all just say that Sam cannot make a human face if he knows a photo is being taken, that’s why he was banned from the little photo shoot after a while, we’re still a damn good looking band though amirite? (Check out Carmela!) Also, become a fan on facebook, we’re well close to 700.
Colour Me Wednesday -*Da na na na click click*
A CMW/Addams family inspired illustration I did. Wednesday is awesome! The idea had been floating around in my head for like a zillion years. Concept from Jen of CMW.
OMG this has 205 notes! Popular design! If anyone wants a t-shirt of it, they’ll be on our shop soon!
Buffalo Bar I hope your ready for the raw raucous anarcho pop aural assault of Colour Me Wednesday!
With Flowers, Hot Hooves (feat. Pete Momthchiloff, founder member of Heavenly & Talulah Gosh) and The London Dirthole Company who have got 4 drummers apparently, it will be a very good night I think, yes it will, see you there!
Saturday 13th April, 8pm Buffulo Bar, Islington
Tickets £5 advance from wegottickets.com
A whole bunch of Plan-It-X related bands are touring the UK, so for the first time, we’re hosting a Plan-It-X fest in london for a day!
† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
GHOST MICE (Bloomington, Indiana)
The pinnacle of international folk punk for many years now, Chris and Hannah (and sometimes others) have paved the way for impassioned folk punk since 2002, creating catchy harmonies punctuated by a beautifully punk ethic. Plan-It-X Records, Discount Horse, No Idea Records and more.
DELAY (Columbus, Ohio)
Famed for their raucous energy and passionate sets, Delay have also been around for aaages, remaining a pertinent element of the Columbus DIY scene. Dead excited! They also have releases on Plan-It-X, Art of the Underground and Salinas records.
SPOONBOY (Washington, DC)
David’s from the Max Levine Ensemble, and has ceaselessly toured the globe, playing both solo and full band shows. For this tour he’ll be playing the raucous, defiant, political Spoonboy songs with a full band. Mint! Asian man, Discount Horse, Plan-It-X etcetc
Rarely needing an introduction anymore, ONSIND have made a name for themselves as one of the best acoustic pop / punk / folk bands in the UK. Friendly, vegan, heart-wrenching feminist pop-punk. They’ll be playing songs from their new LP “Anaesthesiology’, out soon on Discount Horse, Plan-It-X and Win Htein Records.
Bridge and Tunnel-esque, beautifully crafted pop-punk singalongs from this charming Bristol trio. Always a delight to see them and their emanating live energy.
Members of ONSIND, Fashanu, No Ditching, Loki and more team up to make this DIY pop supergroup. ‘The Housemartins via Pity Me, The Marked Men via Motown, ted Leo via Chester-le-Street’. On Odd Box, Discount Horse and Win Htein, Martha play energetic indie-pop-punk songs about history, fiction and small-town melancholia.
COLOUR ME WEDNESDAY
Beautifully catchy yet radical DIY pop from London!
‘Colour Me Wednesday play an exhilarating mash-up of jangle-punk guitar with pop and ska influences, share songwriting and make their own CDs and videos, while proudly proclaiming the sort of DIY, feminist and ethical principles you might associate more with a hardcore anarcho band.’
Debut full-length out this Spring on Discount Horse Records.
THE CASUAL TERRORIST (Newcastle)
Touching, bittersweet anti-folk from Newcastle. Cj writes about cycling, drowning, constant existential crises, sexual politics and more, in a wispy gentle tone.
Bloomer are a new international indie punk band, from London via Alacante, Tokyo and Barcelona, ft. members of Loveover and Ten Speed Bicycle. Fuzzy, sweet pop which makes you feel like your brain’s drowning in it’s own contentment.
† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
This will run on a pretty tight schedule, with doors at 2 and finishing at 10.30.
It’ll be at The Threshold Centre in Hackney, a charming all ages community centre, with a wee garden and plenty of space.
Expect record and zine distros, plenty of merch, vegan cakes and kebab (hopefully) and more.
Any sexist, racist, transphobic, homophobic or any other bullshit won’t be tolerated - DIY should be a safe, inclusive space.
£8 advance (tickets soon!) and a wee bit more on the door.
Any remaining profit from this show will be split between Rape Crisis London and the DIY Space for London project.
Oi you. International Women’s Day is tomorrow. Of course, every day is women’s day to me but for the rest of you, this is pretty important right?
We’re doing this cool gig with loads of women in it and they’re all really good, I’m not going to lie. Especially me.
So come to it, it’s free but we’ll be taking/making donations for Aurora New Dawn. Not entirely sure what that is but it sounds like a group of mercenaries from Mass Effect or like a Daedric cult or something… so in other words, brilliant and not evil.
