With summer finally at an end, festival season seems a world away as forgotten responsibilities are starting to loom. Luckily, here at NARC. we understand your pain – and if it’s a mid-month injection of pop punk fun you’re after, look no further than Durham’s Equestrian Collective gig on Saturday 17th September, when a whirlwind of heavy-handed acts take to the creaky confines of Empty Shop HQ, all in the name of good tunes and a great cause.
Headlining the show will be none other than the intoxicating trembles of punk outfit T-Shirt Weather, a must-see for any passionate Durhamite, as they continue to bask in the angst-ridden glory of their latest LP Pig Beach. Appearing alongside are Riot Grrrl connoisseurs Tough Tits, who are sure to tear up the floorboards with their vicious combo of trilling guitar and a satisfying lyrical bite. Co-hosting with this rebellious pack of locals are Exeter-based quartet The Fairweather Band, but don’t be fooled by their folky namesake: they’ll be bringing forth intricate melodies and passionate, heady lyricism to form a sound that can only be described as a tumultuous mingling of Billy Bragg and Against Me!
So, for a night of ground-shaking entertainment, get yourselves – and any donations you have for the local food bank – down to Durham pronto.
