BOOM! Things don’t slow down for long. After having most of August off from my own personal gigs, I’m back with vengeance and have a fantastic programme on offer.
If you’re new to local music in Devizes, not from Devizes but new to 6th from or just altogether new, then you really need to be chacking (sic) out our shows at The Lamb in St Johns Street. Head to the gigs tab for all the relevant info.
First up Friday 7th September, we have the fantastically talented SHE MAKES WAR – a self confessed Gloom Pop merchant, She Makes War aka Laura Kidd, produces a one woman show with plenty of balls, coming across like PJ Harvey in her prime (before she started ripping off Bat For Lashes) crossed with Blood Red Shoes. Laura looks the part, has the music to match the attitude and will be a fantastic addition to our rich history in Devizes. AND IT’S FREE ENTRY.
Upping the level of underground cool, on Sunday 16th we’re super lucky in Devizes to be Kicking Off the last ever SHOES AND SOCKS OFF! tour. The bands name is the stage name for one Tobias Hayes, former front man of math band, Meet Me In St Loui. Again to have an act of this calibre coming to town is crazy. He is signed to Big Scary Monsters, a uber cool underground label, who had 3 of their acts perform at this years Reading & Leeds festival.
Finally Friday 28th September sees former Kerrang! favourites InMe, and their front man DAVE MCPHERSON bring his very different solo acoustic music to the tiny intimate venue. Dave comes with high praises from the likes of Frank Turner et al, and will guarantee to bring some iconic history to our town. There will be more plugging of this at a later date – videos etc to follow.
To find out more about all this gigs, head to the GIG tab, and look through em’ it really is very exciting.
