A Page Of Punk, The Bay Horse

A Page of Punk / Pure Graft / Pooch / Throwing Stuff

This night of Punk is headlined by a band visiting The Bay Horse all the way from Japan!

A Page of Punk
This Japanese band are a totally happy, fun and fast punk rock band.

Pure Graft
Pure Graft come to do their first gig in Manchester in about 15 months. They look too tough to be playing this, but here they are! http://puregraft.bandcamp.com/
Pooch
Members of Day For Airstrikes bring extra fun to this power trio, they’ve agreed to do more than just 1 gig a year by playing this too. http://www.voteforpooch.co.uk/
Throwing Stuff
Hardcore influenced by the 80s american hardcore bands…..but a Minor Threat cover in their set doesn’t sound out of place at all. Will they have anything recorded by this gig?……….probably not.
Huffin Paint
Do you like Assfactor4? Then you’ll probably like Huffin Paint!

Wednesday 8th August / 8pm / £4

SlingShot, The Bay Horse

Ebb & Flow present Slingshot Dakota / Bangers / The Static Age / Calvinball / Caves / Model Radio

6 bands for less than a pound each makes for a great value Sunday night. Doors are from 6.30pm and the promise is that the gig will start promptly at 6.45pm so don’t be late. If you fancy getting involved with distros, zines and even cakes then get in touch. In Ebb & Flow’s opinion “more shows need bakery”! The FULL line-up (no more bands to be added) is;

Slingshot Dakota
Bangers
The Static Age
Calvinball
Caves
Model Radio

Sunday 12th August / 6.30pm / £5

Cosmic Dead, The Bay Horse

Fat Out Til You Pass Out presents The Cosmic Dead / Laser Dream Eyes / Kult Country

This gig features the talents of Glasgow’s premier purveyors of strosphere climbing psychedelia. Sprawling with tripped out improvisations and atmosphere swallowing riffage, prepare to be ingested and regurgitated into the weedian heavy cosmos, populated by forefathers Can and Popul Vuh.
