When we heard that a venue had cancelled the farewell gig for our friends The Shanners, we quickly assembled the Offline Pronto Gig Relocation crew, and found them a new home. Expect a full on night of rock and roll mayhem - and it's all for free too!
Forged in a Brixton basement and fuelled by Buckfast, exhilarating garage-punkers The Shanners have been kicking up a storm with their crafty, edgy songs blending punk and poetry.
"Melodic growls and jagged rolling riffs signify this swaggering, savage 5 piece. A chunky, spiky sound underpinned by subtle but thumping rhythms" Podshow
Franco's Chariot is a four-man voodoo priesthood dedicated to Rock and Roll music. They firmly believe that the purpose of music is to connect people, to unchain the urge to beat out a rhythm, and to make people sweat and dance round a fifty-foot totem pole in a Hoedown meltdown. If you want to finger-pick bedroom songs to a silent room of fawning devotees crying into their beer, you're at the wrong place, chico.
All hail this folk acoustic troubadour rapidly on the rise and pedalling his self-styled folk-dick-whinge-jazz. The man sings like he has his balls in a vice, he plays guitar like he’s running for a train. Look out!
We'll also have hard-drinking Offline regulars throwing down a selection of ska, punk, reggae, roots, rock'n'roll, new wave, punk, big band, garage rock and more, rocking on till the early hours.
