I'm posting about a night I'm involved with, but Trash Kit are playing and I know a lot of you like them so I'm looking at it as a public service broadcast.
It is also Olegrich's birthday thing. This is what he has written about the bands...
TRASH KIT: http://www.myspace.com/trashkit
If any of you have had the questionable pleasure of spending time in my company since June, then you would have probably heard me rant about/drag you to see Trash Kit. A staggeringly good 3 piece, I will wager good money that you will be left with your jaws well and truly dropped once they are done with you. Having already played with the likes of Marnie Stern, No Age, Vivian Girls and more, and with a highly anticipated album on the horizon through Upset The Rhythm, this could well be one of those nights when you can brag and say 'I was there'.
'Rachel, Rachel and Ros are some of the hardworking-est kickassest people we know playing music right now. In warpaint and boxing shorts, they're bringing the fight with their broken-cymbals; howls and stamps; claps and screams. They write messed up melodies like nobody we've heard in ages. They might be inspired by Marnie Stern, Raincoats and Y Pants but they take it one step further by shredding on a violin classicxcore style. ' Neumagazine.co.uk
BETTY AND THE WEREWOLVES: http://www.myspace.com/bettyandthewerewolves
My Christmas was made this year by confirmation on Christmas Eve that Betty and The Werewolves were to play at HDYD2. Those of you who picked up the latest Rough Trade Indiepop collection will already be familiar with the sheer delight of their sounds (The fantastic 'David Cassidy' appears on the CD. If you don't already have it, go and get it. Now. Go on, we'll still be here when you get back) and those of you who haven't seen the light will soon be hailing them as your new favourite band.
'They are three girls and one boy from London who whoop and howl through the night as sweetly sung melodies collide with glitter-struck punk guitars.
Taking inspiration from luminary lycanthropes Virginia Woolf and Grandma Wolf, they sing ditties about falling in love with David Cassidy and strange encounters on night buses, shouting all the while and scuffing up their party shoes.' - Damaged Goods
And finally, I am delighted to announce a collaboration between 3 of the stars of How Do You do? 2009, who go under the guise of LYNX AFRICA! They are:
MAT RIVIERE: http://www.myspace.com/matriviere
JAM ON BREAD: http://www.myspace.com/jamonbreadyay
GRACE FROM THE MIDDLE ONES : http://www.myspace.com/themiddleones
Now, I must be honest and say that I do not know what is in store from this fantastic trio, but I can guarantee you it will be incredible. Those of you who caught them this year will know full well that you will have to surrender yourselves before the first note is played, because resistance is useless. It is my pleasure to have them back after making the inaugural event such a raging success.
Please do come, it would be great to see some of you there.
