Spindrift / Fai Baba / Saint Agnes
Acid Box Promotions proudly presents SPINDRIFT with main support all the way from Zrich, Switzerland - Fai Baba plus London\'s gothic rock n rollers Saint Agnes! SPINDRIFT facebook.com/SPINDRIFTWEST Spindrift is a psychedelic western influenced cinematic rock band created by singer-songwriter-composer-producer-actor Kirpatrick Thomas. Founded in 1992, the band originated in Newark, Delaware. Heavily influenced by such bands as The Doors, My Bloody Valentine, Hawkwind, Bruce Haack, and Chrome, Spindrifts early stages were heavier, experimental, and differed greatly from their present Ennio Morricone inspired sound. However, the bands unique, ideal, creative DIY style, and knack for a hard working tour ethic has always remained. Throughout the 90s, the group performed mostly in and around the East Coast (CBGBs, Star Bar Atlanta, The Stone Balloon(DE), Khyber Pass(Philly), Mercury Lounge NYC) while evolving their sound to have a more 60s psychedelic garage/punk space-rock style influence. After a quick run of shows in Japan in 2001, band members Kirpatrick Thomas, Joe Baluta and Zachary Hansen made an eye opening trek relocating to Los Angeles where they re-formed to include Bobby Bones of Psychic TV, Dave Koenig, Dan Allaire, Frankie Teardrop Emerson and Rob Campanella of The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Jason Plucky Anchondo of The Warlocks. Inspired by their new desert locale, the band began a new stylistic approach evoking the spirit of the Old West as mythologized by Western Cinema, Spaghetti Westerns in particular. By 2005, Kirpatrick Thomas along with filmmaker Mike Bruce began production on the independent feature film The Legend of Gods Gun, inspired by the same classic Western Films that influenced their music, most often those directed by Sergio Leone and scored by Ennio Morricone. The bands style was coined as Psychedelic Spaghetti Western. In 2008, Spindrift contributed to the soundtrack of the feature film Hell Ride produced by Quentin Tarantino. In Spring of 2011, Spindrift released Classic Soundtracks Volume 1 on Xemu Records. The album featured 14 theme songs to various film scores they are set to and up to 9 different directors participated in the project. The film clips, music videos, and movie trailers featured films by Burke Roberts, J. X. Williams, Abigail Bean, Simon Chan, and many others. The music crossed genres such as Bollywood songs, Science fiction, Exploitation films, and Film noir. The album was engineered by Ethan Allen (of Gram Rabbit) and mastered by Howie Weinberg. The band went on to tour Europe for 2 months supporting Black Mountain, Dead Meadow, and Kurt Vile in Europe. The rest of the year proved to be a busy tour schedule into 2012 as the band toured the U.S. supporting The Black Angels and performed again at Austin Psych Fest 5. Classic Soundtracks Vol.2 was released by the Japanese label Party Ga Hajimaruyo in Nov. 2012 and contained many outtakes from this era. Classic Soundtracks Vol. 3 is on it\'s way! __________________________________________________________ Fai Baba facebook.com/faibabamusic Fai Baba lives and works in Zrich, Switzerland. Hes part of a new generation of international blues avant-garde. Fai Babas songs inspire to all sorts of genre flogging: monster-boo- gie, toxic folk, garage-blues, psychedelic country And thats what rattles the bones at his gigs.

Acid Box: The Pinheads Guising Support Thu 9th Nov
Prepare yourselves as Acid Box Promotions unleash The Pinheads! Thursday 9th November The Hope & Ruin Tickets coming soon... Strictly 18+ sorry :( The Pinheads The Pinheads are a six, sometimes seven piece rock n roll outfit who can be found ten-pin bowling and eating slimy pizza in the suburbs of the Illawarra. They were raised on garage rock and horror films and its what has made them the eyeball-melting, skull shrinking group you\'ll never forget as they crawl out of the crypt and into your mind. In less than a year the band has already begun to clearly define themselves by some fuzzy, raucous rock \'n roll and a wild screaming live show to boot. The band is a sight to see, putting on some of the highest energy, most unpredictable and noisy shows around and has been known to melt people into puddles and horrify the audience. Recorded entirely by themselves in their barn amongst the bush, The Pinheads have now completed their debut EP \'I Wanna Be A Girl\' and it\'s to die for. Mixed and mastered by Owen Penglis (Royal Headache, The Grates, Straight Arrows), they have managed to create their own spicy cocktail of psych and rock \'n roll. Its a record that will feel and sound familiar in a way yet still stand alone and remain totally unique. The Pinheads will scare and swoon you, you won\'t know whether to run, dance or scream. But either way their spell will have you fall in love and howling for more.

Simon McBride At The Tunnels Bristol
The Holy Trinity of Belfast rock n roll Van Morrison, Rory Gallagher & Gary Moore might just be on the verge of becoming a four-leaf clover. PERFORMER MAGAZINE USA After back-pedalling on his solo career to start a family, Simon McBride the man who everyone wants in their band is back on the road with his own jet-fuelled outfit. The turn of 2016 saw McBride touring with Ian Gillan, filling the shoes of Ritchie Blackmore in a programme of Deep Purple songs that played across Europe. The first half of 2017 has him touring with uber-keyboardist Don Airey (another member of Deep Purple), followed by an outing with Whitesnake offshoot, Snakecharmer. With his band of fellow Irishmen Marty McCloskey (drums) and Dave Marks (bass) Simon delivers his own distinctive songs (Hugely accomplished MOJO) along with crowd-pleasers from the likes of Hendrix and Free plus of course, explosive guitar playing! His guitar skills (Among the best blues-rock players anywhere in the world GUITARIST) have made him a go-to guitarist on the British Blues-rock scene, admired among professionals, followed by enthusiasts, and endorsed by some of the biggest brands on the guitar scene. Rewind to the early nineties and you didnt have to squint to spot future greatness in the unassuming kid from Belfast, who picked up his first guitar at ten, eschewing formal lessons to bend his fingers around the music of Free, Jeff Beck and Hendrix. At 16 he turned pro, leaving education behind to wow the world as a hired gun in projects that ranged from filling Vivian Campbells shoes in Sweet Savage, to R&B and soul with ex-Commitments vocalist Andrew Strong. Touring in his own right he has supported Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck and Joe Bonamassa and played major festivals around Europe. Doors Open 7.30pm | 15.00

Sat 25th Nov | 2pm | 20 adv | All Ages* Cockney Rejects www.cockneyrejects.com Rarely in the long history of British rocknroll has there been a story of such depth, magnitude and sheer turbulence as that of the Cockney Rejects The band were formed in the late Seventies in East London as an answer to the art school punk that had dominated the scene up until then. Fiercely working class instance and attitude, the band eschewed the political ramblings of punks first wave and sang about the circumstances that surrounded them and millions of street kids in Britains inner cities- Police harassment, street battles and football to name three. Signed by EMI after playing four local gigs (less than the pistols!) they found themselves playing sell out tours the length and breadth of the UK and seeing their debut album storm the charts. Top of the pops appearances followed, which became the stuff of legend as the band generally ran amok in the hallowed White city studios, finally getting banned from the show for their boisterous behaviour.

Elvis In Concert At The O2 Arena
Following the sellout British arena tour last year and the No.1 multi-platinum album The Wonder Of You, Elvis arrives at The O2 on 30 November, for a live concert experience like no other, featuring the most recognisable voice of all time, backed by the legendary Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. Tickets go on sale Friday 24 March and are available at www.theo2.co.uk or by calling 0844 856 0202. Last years run gained critical applause the Yorkshire Evening Post commented Elvis may have left the building but his legacy very much goes marching on, with the Birmingham Mail observing how the RPCO played a blinder to authenticate Elviss back catalogue, with The Spectator stating the technical achievement was remarkable. Featuring a very special personal appearance by Priscilla Presley, the shows will once again give fans a chance that many have never had before to experience the man who changed the course of popular music. Up close live on screen, the biggest selling solo artist in history (having sold an astonishing one billion records worldwide), alongside the RPCO live on stage performing the King of Rock and Rolls most well-known rocking songs and his tender, heart-wrenching ballads. The critically acclaimed albums, If I Can Dream and The Wonder Of You, used archive recordings of The Kings voice featuring new orchestral arrangements of some of his biggest hits, to create an overwhelmingly encapsulating and enthralling album. The latter was Elvis 13th No.1 album in the UK. These shows will be a musical celebration of the legend for whom superlatives werent enough and who continues to break records.
