It’s a typical high-energy-meets-pop-punk-with-a-message performance from the LoGOz lads as they dive headlong into a solid support set on tonight’s punk filled line-up. 

Consistent in their ability to provide a solid show, LoGOz remain one of the North East’s hidden live gems, standing out with their spiky guitars, walking bass lines and the solid one-two of standout tracks Disgraceland and Anti-Social Media. Punky, and filled with rebel energy, they’re a great warm up for protest punk sisters The SoapGirls, whose combination of gymnastic poses, glitter and furious glam rock go down a storm.  

Somehow managing to merge the glam stomp of The Glitter Band, the pop power vocals of Shampoo, and the societal outrage of PiL, The SoapGirls are on great form; mixing an 80s hair-metal aesthetic with strong messages of personal strength and resilience. Supported by an additional drummer, the sisters’ guitar and bass combination propel their performance to a powerful combination; stand outs Johnny Rotten and She Don’t Wanna, push their vocal interplay, hard rock licks and messages about self-affirmation into a strong stage show. Confident and resilient, this is a solid theatrical performance from The SoapGirls.
