10 bands at The Good Ship this weekend and Saturday has the best line up of the summer Saturdays so far in my opinion plus tonight we have the quite excellent Joana and The Wolf playing. Also tonight is a fundraiser for a theatre group so you'll be supporting the arts which will make you sleep better no doubt!xx
Friday 17th August
ISO Productions present a theatre production fundraiser featuring live music from
Joana and The Wolf www.myspace.com/joanaandthewolf "Here is an exciting band with a singer very much in touch with her inner PJ Harvey and with enough of an ear for melody to leave people wanting more"
Plastic Passions www.myspace.com/plasticpassionuk A post-punk, power-pop trio with shouty cheeky chappie vocals, Gang of Four bass lines and sarky Art Brut swagger.
+ more on the night.
After DJ Rick and friends playing funk, house, hip hop and twisty beats until 4am.
Saturday 18th August
