Chilean trio LA Hell Gang have hooked up with promoters Leave Me Here, and sussed out a FREE gig for you lucky scoundrels, taking place at The Tyne Bar on Sunday 22nd March.

Don’t let the name fool you, the rock group peddle a South American blend of psychedelic entwined riffs, performed at such a tempo you’d think grunge was making a comeback. After releasing their second album Thru Me Again, it’s clear LA Hell Gang have a point to prove as they build on from their initial promising releases.

As the first few bass notes of What You Want You Got It echo into life, their blend of desert rock becomes familiarly apparent, conjuring images of motor biking through a desolate wasteland, with vultures cawing in the distance over a smoke filled horizon. Reverbed lyrics and a murky mystery twinned with an otherworldly grace means the Chilean trio are an enthralling and riveting live act. Support on the night comes from the effects-laden psychedelic jam of Newcastle’s Blown Out.

LA Hell Gang and Blown Out play The Tyne Bar, Newcastle on Sunday 22nd March.
