MONDAY 13TH FEBRUARY
Catholic Action are a product of Glasgow’s famously fertile music scene but have won fans across the UK thanks to their peerless pop masterpieces. After a run of rapturously received gigs in their hometown the group released their long-awaited debut release for Luv Luv Luv Records (Spector, Only Real, Splashh, The Garden) earlier this year. Support comes from psychedelic indie band Handwaxx and rock & rollers The Americas.

FRIDAY 17TH FEBRUARY
The Blinders are a three-piece alternative group from Doncaster who are now based in Manchester. The band attempts to be in your face at all times, smelting loud and visceral political punk rock with enigmatic, psychedelic poetry and tones. Their diverse, unique combination of raw music creates the ‘Punkadelic’ sound which forces the trio to give everything they’ve got in their frenzied performances, leaving only blood-stained instruments behind. Support comes from garage-punk trio The Cosmics and rock & roll band The Surrenders.

SATURDAY 18TH FEBRUARY
A night that sees two of the best new bands from home and further a field, with Shush and The Harringtons co-headlining. Shush are the new big thing from Wolves, already establishing themselves as one of the rising stars of 2017. Coming hot off the heels of The Sherlocks, The Harringtons mix a raw live show with song writing brilliance.
