Love Thy Neighbour have a triple whammy three-night festival of new music at the Hope & Ruin this week, 26th – 28th January.
First up on Thursday night are SOURCE favourites Porridge Radio with their lo-fi riot-girl anarchic sadcore rock. They manage to be tough yet adorable (we interviewed singer Dana recently). They’ll be accompanied by a new band Garden Centre featuring members of King of Cats, Joanna Gruesome, Towel and Keel Her; and the lo-fi buzziness of Jarvis Cocker-appreciated LC Pumpkin.
On Friday 27th, we have a brilliant line-up led by the soulful vocals and sample-infected loops of GAPS, very ably supported by the excellent Dog In The Snow with Helen’s first gig after a year of being part of the Fear of Men touring line-up. Kicking off the bill will be the dreamy electronica of KUB.
Triptych 3 on Saturday night is a collaboration with Nanocluster and features headliners Immersion, who are an electronic music project of Malka Spigel & Colin Newman with added guitars. They will be supported by experimental multidisciplinary artist Eva Bowan and the electro-rhythmic three-piece Merlin Tonto.
Tickets available on the door or from all the usual places. Pre-booking recommended to avoid disappointment.
