Local promoters DIE DAS DER are to host the first of what will hopefully become a regular gig night in Wolverhampton this Friday, utilising some new venues and interesting locations in the area. The first one will take place this Friday night (29th November) from 7:30pm upstairs The Clarendon Hotel in Chapel Ash.
“We’ve had lots of people coming up to us during our regular events in Birmingham, suggesting that we should look to do something on a regular basis in Wolverhampton – as there’s very little chance for the small Wolves noise and punk bands to play local gigs” says Paul from DDD. “So, we’ve decided to give it a go. If every one enjoys it, and enough people come down, then we’ll be back for more in 2020!”
The gig is being put on in conjunction with Rob Fellows from The Cellar Rooms (who also hosts the regular ‘No Amps No Chat No Charge’ acoustic gigs at the Arena Theatre in the City), and Jimm Zorn from Black Country Recording Company (BLKCORECCO).
Playing this first event:
- FALLING STACKS (Bristol) – quality noise rock and favourites of Idles.
- WMN (Wolves) – a stoner rock duo with mammoth riffs who need no introduction to locals.
- GHOST OF THE AVALANCHE (Bath) – bass and drums 2-piece punk rock outfit who should probably be headlining arenas.
- A PIG CALLED EGGS (Telford) – another local favourite who defy definition (running the gamut of styles from Cardiacs to Mr Bungle).
There’s a £5 charge on the door, or advance tickets can be purchased for £4 from theticketsellers.co.uk
