All aboard for iLiKETRAiNS at Nottingham DiS...
The fourth Nottingham Drowned In Sound night takes place this coming Saturday (March 11th), and we've put together a line-up that really will give you palputations and make your cavities explode. This month we've four of the finest live bands in the country, featuring:
iLiKE TRAiNS (pictured)
"iLiKETRAiNS are strangely Icelandic, peculiarily English and have rather a lot of barmy Aussie Nick Cave in them. So how does one band become so multinational? It's in their sweeping soundscapes, their eccentric fondness for trains (there are projections of locomotives and British Rail Jackets) and lyrics full of murderous intent. Creepy..." (NME)
"...as angry as it's possible to be without physically assaulting someone" (Drowned In Sound)
Elegant, experimental pop that borders on the classical, uncompromising and unconventionally exciting.
There will also be an acoustic set by local troubadour Kevin Richards as well as the usual the Drowned In Sound club night shenanigans featuring various DJs including Lucia (Club NME/The Undressed), Dan & Tom (Hot Renault Traffic Club) and The Drowned In Soundsystem (Dom Gourlay and Jordan Dowling), plus numerous drinks promotions throughout the evening.
And then, after the show, everyone will be heading off to The Social around the corner for some aftershow beers and choons 'til 4am.
Venue: Cabaret, Fletchergate, Nottingham.
Door times: 8pm til late.
Admission: £5 on the door, £4 with flier, £3 NUS.
