‘Christy & Emily’ /LoneLady /Kattparaden / Former Utopia
Tuesday 7th August.
Christy & Emily (New York) are John Cage loving Art post punk double act.
Half John cage Avante Guarde classical and half Velvet Underground indie rocker-this cool 2 piece showcase their debut album on the ubercool ‘The Social Registry’ label.
“One of the most exciting bands about!” DIS
XFM’s John Kennedy/ BBC6’s Marc Riley favourites-who are scarily on fire live with wild man drumming, tight abrasive D boon/Bob Mould like complex chord choppery and a room silencing voice of inordinate power.
"The sound of prime Kim Gordon..." Everett True - Plan B Magazine

Daniel Johnston’esq haunting piano melodies, mesh with delicate multilayered vocal harmonies creating an otherworldly uplifting beauty.
