Saturday 31st August

Xander Promotions presents...

Green Date (Green Day Tribute)
plus The Lost Future
The formation of Green Date pre-dates the world shaking arrival of the album “American Idiot” and the never-to-be-forgotten “Bullet In A Bible” tour. Based in Nottinghamshire, Green Date are one of the finest tribute bands, displaying their talents to fans across the four corners of the British Isles and further afield into mainland Europe. Now well established in the nation’s punk circle the members of Green Date are all gifted musicians in their own right. However, the passion and creative edge that comes across in their live shows derives from their collective love of the band they so closely emulate, Green Day.

Magic Teapot Presents

Flying Kangaroo Alliance (Single Vinyl Launch)
plus The Dedbeats, Siobhan Mazzei, Kevin Hewick
and The Bobcats
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.

Tonight heralds a special vinyl single launch for the band, in association with Punk Fox Records.

“Finally a bit of attitude; Meri Everitt and her band F.K.A. perform an excellent set of 90s’esque alt/grunge/rock… Meri’s voice is aggressive and captivating as she spills cleverly written anti-mainstream, f-you lyrics. Under which the band play exceptional music; very clever discordant figures and contesting parts between the two guitars and the bass give a very interesting textures for the listener’s ear." - Arts in Leicester
