** HANG ON TO YOUR TROUSERS – HERE COMES HAVOC! **
** NEW MONTHLY NIGHT ARRIVES TO LIGHTEN UP THE DALSTON VICTORIA! **
Rejoice, indie gigging tykes – HAVOC! is heading this way. Brought to you by the sonic scoundrels behind fierce panda, Club Fandango and Disorder promotions this monthly affair launches on Monday May 9th in the company of SEAN GRANT & THE WOLFGANG + COQUIN MIGALE + MOTHER before reverting to the traditional second-Tuesday-of-every-month spot in the musical diary from June and beyond. Happily, HAVOC! is taking place at our very favouritest back room venue in the known musical universe, The Victoria in Dalston, and that’s not only because they serve a lager called Milk.
The opening episode of HAVOC! sees two launch parties occurring the same night as Midlanders Sean Grant & The Wolfgang celebrate the release of their ‘7 Deadly 7’ EP on fierce panda (out on May 6th), while north-eastern rockers Coquin Migale blow up the balloons of wonderment for their ‘Grindie’ single, out on the very same label on the very same day. Uber-melodic Southerners Mother meanwhile bring the iced gems in the opening slot, rather like this…
MONDAY 9 MAY 2016
THE VICTORIA, DALSTON, LONDON (451 Queensbridge Road, E8 3AS)
FIERCE PANDA / CLUB FANDANGO / DISORDER PRESENTS
SEAN GRANT & THE WOLFGANG
FREE ENTRY / RSVP HERE
SEAN GRANT & THE WOLFGANG (onstage 10.00pm) are four men from the middling lands of Northampton and Milton Keynes and play barnstorming, blood-pumping, boot-stomping indiefolkpunk rock with beards, blazers and blisteringly rowdy tunesmithery.
COQUIN MIGALE (onstage 9.15pm) are four men from the north-eastern lands of Newcastle and are pronounced ‘Co-kane Mag-elle’. As the title of their ‘Grindie’ track may suggest they peddle a winningly grin-worthy car-crashing blend of grunge and indie with giant radio support from the likes of Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart.
MOTHER (onstage 8.30pm) are four men from London Town who specialise in a hectic brand of British pop which is slightly funky and heavy on the harmonies, nodding as it does at the melodic thunderings of The Cardiacs and Supergrass.
