JOYCE MANOR / MARTHA / FANCY DRESS PARTY / DRAMA KIDS
Wednesday 5th July 2017
The Bullingdon Arms
£8 adv / £10 on the door.
This is an ALL AGES SHOW (but under 14's must be accompanied by an adult).
Acclaimed Californian band Joyce Manor - Barry Johnson (vocals and guitar), Chase Knobbe (guitar), Jeff Enzor (drums), and Matt Ebert (bass) - have announced the release of their anticipated new album entitled Cody which arrives in stores this October 7th, care of Epitaph. It is the follow-up to the band’s 2014’s critically-lauded record Never Hungover Again.
Hailing from Pity Me, Durham, Martha play energetic, impassioned power pop with intricate vocal interplay and lush four-part harmonies. The band is comprised of J. Cairns (guitar), Daniel Ellis (guitar), Naomi Griffin (bass), and Nathan Stephens Griffin (drums). All four members sing and write the songs. Their debut album “Courting Strong”, produced by MJ from Hookworms, came out in 2014 and was included in NPR’s top 50 albums of that year, winning them the epithet “One of Britain’s best rock bands”.
FANCY DRESS PARTY
Killer sulkwave/indie-punk/powerpop from Oxford, they've only done two shows so far but have absolutely slayed both of them... This is a band to keep an eye on, and they seem to nail this awesome mixture of early Sunny Day Real Estate and bedroom powerpop. Featuring ex-members of Too Many Poets, Slate Hearts, and others.
The first ever Smash Disco show at the Library was headlined by Hate Mail, our favourite local punk brats who sounded like Jawbreaker or Dag Nasty but with more attitude. After their sad demise, some of them are back playing similarly awesome melodic punk. This is their first gig!
