This Saturday 5 December sees our long-awaited, twice-postponed show at Wild Card brewery. It’s free entry with two great bands, DJs, a winter ale festival and home-cooked food. What more could you want?
We’re honored that having started life as a home recording project, Victory Kicks have chosen us to host their debut full-band show.
Founded in early 2013 by songwriter and guitarist John Sibley, after a series of singles and EPs, Victory Kicks went from solo project to band with the addition of friends from other London based acts and established its own record label with the release of its first official EP, Rockets for Ghosts. Hot on the heels came the first full length album The Decibel Age and two EPs of lo-fi indie rock n roll, Emergency Noise and The Young Flood. The prolific output shows no sign of slowing and the second full length album High Wires was released to critical acclaim in July this year.
While John has been playing solo shows, this gig is the first time the full band has played live and will feature favourite songs from across all the previous records.
Scene not Herd favorites WEM are playing their first live show of 2015 featuring songs old and new.
WEM are four men from the Medway estuary towns in Kent. Their music ranges from the brutal to the beautiful. The sound palate is dark and uncompromising: at times a pounding dirge, at others ambient, spacious and meditative. It highjacks elements of blues, krautrock and noise.
WEM are an overpowering live act, with a new set of songs about death and open water. Listen to WEM if you like Nick Cave, Swans and Einstuerzende Neubauten.
