IVORY TUSKS, PENGUIN, ANDWHATARMY? AND SHERMER @ THE CEDAR ROOM,
FRI 22nd FEB, 8pm. £3 entry.
Burn Down the Disco’s Keep on Burning is this weeks recommended Gig of the Week. It features four brilliant local acts in a line-up transcends the ‘indie’ label that BDTD normally carries and that will appeal to metal and alt rock fans as welll as BDTD regulars.
Headlining is Stoner Rock band Ivory Tusks who have drawn comparisons to Queens of the Stone Age, and if you listen to their track Virgin, those comparisons are completely justified. With a set list made up of experimental space jams and then catchy numbers like this, these guys are worthy headliners of this gig and in fact, any gig!
Next up is Hemsowrth’s Penguin, an alternative three piece who formed when they were just fourteen. Whilst being completely original, they’ve been compared to the likes of Biffy Clyro, Muse, Nirvana & U2 and fuse Alt Rock with lashings of Prog.
ANDWHATARMY? is the new band forged from members of Dirty Jeans, Better For Nothing and Paradine Case and are playing their debut gigs throughout 2013. They have recently launched a soundcloud page previewing a couple of demos.
And finally there is Shermer who is opening the night. Already well known in both indie and metal circles, the band have a big atmospheric sound, which compliments vocalist Tom’s husky voice perfectly. Recalling Hope of the States and early Feeder, their songs are big, post-grunge pop.
