Jonah Matranga (Far / New End Original / Gratitude / onelinedrawing) is headed back to the UK very soon, which includes a Nottingham gig.
I hadn't seen him for years until he played Hit The Deck last year, then did a proper headline show at the Guitar Bar, and I had forgotten how great and unique his shows are, so I jumped at the opportunity to bring him back to the city on August 8th.
He'll be supported by Merrick's Tusk (who've just released their debut EP – emo / post hardcore fans should check out. FFO Crash of Rhinos, Elliott, The Appleseed Cast http://merrickstusk.bandcamp.com), Mountain Schmountain (mellow loveliness by members of Some Skeletons) and Sammy H Stephens.
