Yawning Man // The Brackish // More TBA - The Lanes, Bristol

Snuff Lane and BLG Promotions loudly bring you: Yawning Man (Official) // The Brackish // More To Be Announced Sunday 16th June The Lanes, Bristol Doors: 19:30 Tickets: 10.00 adv. // 12.00 otd. -- Bristol Ticket Shop: http://bit.ly/2Nn9GmG -- Headfirst: http://bit.ly/2GF2p12 Legendary Californian desert, stoner rock godfathers YAWNING MAN return to Bristol for another unmissable mesmerizing performance! Support from local psychedelic vanguards and instrumental misfit maestros THE BRACKISH, with more to be announced. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Yawning Man (Official) https://yawningman.bandcamp.com The aural experience that Yawning Man delivers on stage and through their recordings is like hearing a colorful kaleidoscope of polyphonic musical textures that is both graceful yet intense. Formed in the late 1980\'s between lifelong friends Gary Arce, Mario Lalli, Alfredo Hernandez and Larry Lalli, they are recognized and acknowledged as a key piece in the early development of the "stoner rock" genre along with being pioneers of the Palm Desert, CA heavy music scene. While their more commercial contemporaries leaned toward heavy riffs and hardcore punk, Yawning Man made themselves distinct with their favoring of reverb laced surf and psychedelic tones...the perfect blend of sound to encompass spacious atmosphere of the well documented "generator parties" of their area in the late 1980\'s. It was at these gatherings where they earned their bones by enchanting spectators with their seemingly endless free form instrumental sessions, which echoed through the barren, rocky landscapes of the Coachella Valley and beyond. As time passed, their legend grew with notable names of the Palm Desert music scene paying homage to the group through mention and praise, notably with Kyuss doing their own rendition of the Yawning Man track "Catamaran" on the ...And The Circus Leaves Town release. It wouldn\'t be well into the new millennium for any recordings to be made commercially available, only fueling their legend amongst the underground. Now with four full lengths available and a handful of EPs and splits, they have become an in-demand name worldwide with ten years of European tours along with treks across the North and South American continents (South America resulting in their latest release, Historical Graffiti). Festival appearances include Hellfest (FR), Azkena Fest (SP), Reverence Fest (SP) Desertfest London, Desertfest Berlin, Up in Smoke (DL), Psycho Las Vegas, and various others across Europe. The recent documentaries Lo Sound Desert and Desert Age give light on Yawning Mans influential impact on underground rock music This is a band that makes you envision a multitude of colors when listening to their albums and the effect carries over to their live experiences as well. The raucous reaction they received from their performance left the audience dumbfounded and in disbelief upon the final chord sweep, we can only hope more comes from this group with future activity. - New Noise Magazine Yawning Man has always been an in the know band for the heavy rock underground, far more influential globally than commercially successful. - The Obelisk One of the most impressive facets of Yawning Man is the absence of a singer and an instrumental jam band would need to be dynamic enough o fill that void, Yawning Man does it well. - MetalWani.com --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Brackish http://thebrackish.bandcamp.com/releases Brackish are a thrillingly unique instrumental post-punk psych band featuring alumni of The Liftmen, Zun Zun Egui, This Is The Kit and Phantom Limb. At the core of the music are tight arrangements combined with improvisation, featuring interplay between two distinctive guitar voices. Each tunes clear conception tells a story - changes of mood and rhythm add a compelling narrative to a vital and visceral sound. The broad vocabulary of the music - psychedelic, metal, jazz, kraut - conjures echoes from Steve Reich to Sabbath, Can and Tortoise. \'Its an album that is at once joyous and free yet, with a slight time signature change or introduction of a certain guitar affect, can make you feel queasy and uncomfortable. You can never second guess it or assume you know where the songs are heading as its relentless riffing can suddenly morph from Sabbath sludge to Television crispness.\' - See more at: http://louderthanwar.com/the-brackish-big-guys-album-review/#sthash.IAkf12qr.dpuf --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- More to be announced.

Alien Weaponry At The Underworld Camden

Live Nation UK and The Underworld Camden proudly present: Alien Weaponry plus support. Doors - 6:00pm // Price - 14.00 Adv. Tickets - http://po.st/v8NtWl About: Alien Weaponry - www.facebook.com/AlienWeaponry "Whispers" - https://youtu.be/3HychlNvGq4 Alien Weaponry are one of the most exciting young metal bands in the world right now according to Revolver Magazine in the USA. And theyre not the only ones who thinks so. Since well before they released their debut album Tu on 1 June 2018, fans, bloggers, the music industry and the media worldwide have raved about Alien Weaponrys unique blend of thrash metal and their native language, Te Reo Maori. The three-piece thrash metal band from Waipu, New Zealand, was formed in 2010 by brothers Lewis and Henry de Jong, who were 8 and 10 years old at the time. The band consists of Lewis de Jong (guitar and vocals), Henry de Jong (drums), and Ethan Trembath (bass guitar). Most noted for their fusion of Te Reo Maori (the native language of New Zealand) with thrash metal, they deliver emotionally and politically charged stories of conflict and grief with a warrior-like attitude. Drummer Henry de Jong says, Our musical style and messages have a lot of similarities with haka, which is often brutal, angry and about stories of great courage or loss. The de Jong brothers are of Ngati Pikiao and Ngati Raukawa (Maori tribal) descent; and began their schooling at a kura kaupapa Maori (full immersion Maori language school), where singing waiata (songs) and performing haka were a daily routine. Also ingrained in their early learning were stories of New Zealand history told to them by their father, who, alongside the story telling, played them music from Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Anthrax, Ministry, Red Hot Chili Peppers; and it is this combination of music, language, history and socio-political commentary that underpins the bands sound and ideas. The brothers named the band Alien Weaponry after watching the movie District 9. After moving to the small town of Waipu in 2012, they were joined by bass guitarist Ethan Trembath in April 2013. At the time, Trembath was 11 years old, and got the job because he could reach the end of the bass guitar. The band has toured extensively in New Zealand since 2013, including headline/main stage slots at the NZ Tattoo & Arts Festival, Wavefront and Auckland City Limits; as well as opening for Prophets of Rage in March 2018. More recently, they have sold out headline shows in Australia, Europe and the USA; and played to record crowds at some of the biggest and most prestigious festivals and in Europe and the UK, including Wacken Open Air (Germany), MetalDays (Slovenia), Summer Breeze (Germany) and Bloodstock Open Air (UK). In New Zealand, Alien Weaponry has won multiple awards, starting with their double win at Smokefreerockquest and Smokefree Pacifica Beats in 2016. In 2017, they won the APRA Maioha Award for their song Raupatu; and were finalists in the APRA Silver Scroll Award (Urutaa); the Waiata Maori Awards for Best Music Video (Ru Ana Te Whenua); and the Vodafone NZ Music Awards for Best Maori Artist. In 2018, they were finalists in the Vodafone NZ Music Awards in six categories, taking home the Tui for Best Rock Artist, while the producers of Tu won the Best Producer award. The band is managed internationally by German-based agency Das Maschine; and has a worldwide distribution deal with Napalm Records. They are represented by Pinnacle Entertainment (also representing Slayer, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie and Noel Gallagher) in North America and UK-based K2 touring agency (also representing Slayer, Iron Maiden, Mastodon and Gojira) in the rest of the world. Following the release of their debut album Tu, AWs single Kai Tangata rocketed to no.1 on the prestigious Devils Dozen countdown for the Liquid Metal show on New York based Sirius XM, where it remained for 13 weeks. The video for Kai Tangata was the Most Added Metal Song for June 2018 on US Cable Channel Music Choice (delivering to 50 million households) and had over 2 million views on YouTube in the first four months since its release.

Chris Difford

Chris Difford returns to Acapela after his sell out concert in 2018. Chris brings his Up the Junction tour providing mores stories from the kitchen sink. A stand up and sit-down night of tales and songs from his past in Squeeze. Chris Difford is a rare breed. As a member of one of Londons best-loved bands, the Squeeze co-founder has made a lasting contribution to music with hits such as Cool For Cats, Up The Junction, Labelled With Love, Hourglass and Tempted. Despite the fact that Chris has helped soundtrack so many fans lives since his first release in 1977, the passion for innovation and love of playing still drives him to carry on writing rather than sit back and admire his handiwork. For over 40 years he has been writing with Glenn Tilbrook, very much the Odd Couple. Over the course of a 13 album career with Squeeze, it was clear from the very beginning that Chris Difford has few peers when it comes to smart, pithy lyricism. His kitchen sink-drama style has drawn plaudits from fans on both sides of the Atlantic, while his influence is keenly felt today. The likes of Lily Allen and Mark Ronson, Kasabian, Razorlight and The Feeling have all recognised the debt they owe to Squeezes music and to Diffords way with words, while journalists were moved by his winning combination with Glenn Tilbrook to dub the pair The New Lennon and McCartney. Chris first learned to stand on his own when he wrote the lyrics for the fictional band Strange Fruit in the 1998 British comedy film Still Crazy, for which he won his first Ivor Novello award. Since then he has written and contributed lyrics for the likes of Elton John, Wet Wet Wet, Jools Holland, Paul Carrack, Lisa Stansfield and Bryan Ferry. Chris has curated Songs In The Key Of London event at the Barbican, bringing together musicians old and new such as Glenn Tilbrook, Suggs, Jools Holland, Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets) and James Hunter, as well as students from the local community. A second event took place in Greenwich Park in 2011 with Gary Kemp, Chris Wood, UB40 and others. In 2014 Songs In The Key Of London took place in Regents park with Gregory Porter, The Strypes, Guy Barker Ed Harcourt and Sophie Ellis Baxter. Chris hosts songwriter workshops and has done so for over 25 years. In 2014 he formed a partnership with The Buddy Holly Foundation to run a week of writing at Pennard House Glastonbury. Other writing events include Guardian Master Classes held in London and smaller events at The Rathfinney Wine Estate in East Sussex.

Rowan Rheingans: Dispatches On The Red Dress | Bristol

8.00pm start (doors open 7.30pm) Dispatches on the Red Dress is an intimate and adventurous exploration of memory, identity, joy, sorrow, trauma-recovery, bird-song, war and waltzes. Unravelling the urgent message hidden in the folds of a story from her own grandmothers youth in 1940\'s Germany, award-winning musician Rowan Rheingans sings to the past, the present and the future in this unique and deeply personal one-woman show. At once a warm family memoir and an unnerving elegy on the modern human condition, Rowan explores how hope for the future may be found in the very darkest pockets of history. Weaving storytelling and song with fiddles, banjo and guitar, live looping and subtle use of pre-recorded sounds, Rowan brings the intimacy of a folk gig to the imaginative possibilities of theatre in this poignant reflection on human empathy and small acts of transformation. - Rowan Rheingans is a fiddle player, banjoist, songwriter and composer best known for her work with acclaimed folk bands Lady Maisery, The Rheingans Sisters and Songs of Separation. With these projects Rowan has won two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (\'Best Original Track\' & \'Best Album\') and is a five-times nominee. Rowans debut solo show Dispatches on the Red Dress is supported by PRS Foundation, Arts Council England and English Folk Dance and Song Society. www.rowanrheingans.co.uk big ideas carried off with aplomb. not only an excellent songwriter but someone with a fine grasp of the delicate balance of joy and pain that makes us human Folk Radio UK carefully crafted words that reveal a deep emotional charge Louder Than War vivid songwriting spectacularly beautiful" Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
