I know, I know, wrong place - but more people look here. This day will be awesome. If you're local come down, if you're nearly local come down too. If you're not local, and like train/car journeys, then you too should be there.

7 Bands, One Evening:
THAT FUCKING TANK - 2 men in pants play LOUD guitar music that owes a little to AC/DC and a whole lot more to Lightning Bolt. Supreme rockin'.
JOHNNY FOREIGNER - Much hyped 3 piece indie-rock act from Birmingham. Spazzy guitars, gain up to 11, and bastard pop songs ahoy.
TELEVISE - Simon from SLOWDIVE plays a mix of shoegazer sounds and electronic ambience. Take Stars Of The Lid etc. as a reference point.
FUZZY LIGHTS - Playing a full band show. At the more experimental end of the post-rock spectrum, giving off hints of The Grails and a strong folk influence.
THE TUPOLEV GHOST - Local noise-rock/post-hardcore taking cues from all things Dischord, Touch & Go and Desoto. Glowing review from Drowned In Sound recently and will be playing 2 new songs.
THE PUNCTURE REPAIR KIT - Cambridge's premier cardi-core exports. Expect sweets, suits and a fair few tunes too.
MY PSYCHOANALYST - Just added to the bill. Gargantun sounding three-piece from just outside London. Performed a 3 song session on Huw Stephen's Radio 1 show only this week and play My Bloody Valentine style guitars and whispered melodies.
