Reliably informed

Sunday evenings… Relaxing on the couch, watching Antiques Roadshow and Songs Of Praise, whilst eating sandwiches made from the day’s Sunday roast and riding out gut wrenching anxiety about going back to work. Wouldn’t it be nice to have to have a break from that dystopian routine? Wouldn’t it be great for one night it was replaced with a high-octane night of fuzzed up rock ‘n’ roll? Well thanks to the on-the-pulse DIY promoter Prancey Dog, your desires will become a reality.

On Sunday 28th July Newcastle’s purveyors of the exciting avant-garde bring a three band line up to The Cluny. Heading up the bill are Leeds outfit Cowtown, who merge frazzled post-hardcore riffs with squelching, infectious synth basslines and shout-a-long vocal lines. They’re a ferocious and unmissable live band that will make you not care that you have to be up at 6am the next day.

Joining them are Prancey dog faves Mouses. The lo-fi garage punk duo renowned for their raw and energetic live performances and their willingness to tackle societal orthodoxies and injustices head on. Their songs are class too.

Completing the line up are No Teeth, an experimental noise-punk band who add big choruses to a sound that fuses various genres such as noise-rock, post-punk, garage rock and stoner rock.

Tickets are £8 (plus booking fee) and available from Reflex, RPM and online.
