Cheeseweasel Promotions presents...

Saturday 20th July

Mage + Flying Kangaroo Alliance + Temple Of Lies + Tribute To Nordberg
Doors 7pm, Music starts 8pm
Mage are a five-piece band who have plenty of experience between them on the Leicester music scene, brought together by a shared love of “THEE RIFF” and a desire to jam and experiment. The result is a stoner, doomy metal kind of sound but with a whole host of other elements thrown in.

Like a bag of party poppers in a tumble dryer, Flying Kangaroo Alliance are probably the best new alt-rock/grunge band you've never heard. Formed in 2011, their influences range from the grunge of the early 90s through to Muse and Paramore.

The philosophy behind Temple Of Lie's music is that pretty much anything goes, with no boundaries. As long as it rocks with a real groove that's all that matters. Their material is both diverse, and unique in it's own way whilst still retaining that signature TOL sound and feel.

And special guests tonight are Tribute to Nordberg, an alternative rock band from Nottingham. Think of bands such as the Smashing Pumpkins, Audioslave, Alice In Chains and you'll get the idea. They have honed a dark, heavy and rocking, yet melodic sound.

Sunday 21st July

Bill Kirchen & Too Much Fun
plus Micky Kemp
Grammy nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen is one of the fortunate few who can step onto any stage, play those trademark licks that drove his seminal Commander Cody classic Hot Rod Lincoln into the Top Ten, and elicit instant recognition for a career that has spanned over 40 years and includes guitar work with Nick Lowe, Emmylou Harris, Doug Sahm, Elvis Costello and many more. Named “A Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine, he celebrates an American musical tradition where rock 'n' roll and country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, Western swing from Texas and California honky-tonk..

"A devastating culmination of the elegant and the funky, a really sensational musician with enormous depth" - Nick Lowe

"He is one of the singular instrumental stylists of American roots music, and to hear his sound once is to have it indelibly etched on one’s musical memory" - Pop Matters

"You might call [Hot Rod Lincoln] the Triumph of the Telecaster. Then again, you might say that about Kirchen's whole career" - No Depression
