The Castle Builder – Edinburgh Fringe Smash hits Peterborough Town

Being old punks, we’re all about supporting local events, especially anything less mainstream and different.

There’s a show coming to our hometown of Peterborough on the 10th November 2017, which impressed at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, and a friend of ours is helping to promote it so why wouldn’t we give it a mention here?  It’s  a cross between a TED talk and a Rock show apparently.  It celebrates the DIY ethic – which is what we’re all about.

THE CASTLE BUILDER

10th Nov 2017.  The Undercroft, Serpentine Green, PE7 8BE Peterborough

Kid Carpet and Vic Llewellyn take you on a musical, magical, moving & comic journey through the minds of some of our planet’s most eccentric and creative individuals. A smash-hit success at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

The show spirals outwards from personal accounts into tales of outsider artists who’ve been inspired to build gigantic extraordinary structures, alone, in secret, and without artistic approval from the real world.

“It holds its audience, tenderly, in the palm of its hand, lifts us to the stars, then places us gently back down on earth, with a reminder that there’s always time to live better.”
– Exeunt (Maddy Costa):

Feminist DIY Punk Coming in September

chicks with bricks

We’ve often thought that our gigs should represent all – which means we knew we needed to find the best and most exciting bands out there who show what real girl power is!

And lo, we’ve made it happen!   Our Borderlands Brawlers benefit gig on the 3rd September now has a complete line-up, and it’s one of our most exciting and varied yet!

Beverley Kills + Perkie + Hello Mabel + Lilith Ai

@ Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge.  Doors 8pm.  First band 8.45.  Tickets £6 adv, £7 on the door.  Tickets here.

The Bev’s have been friends of ours for ages, and we’re chuffed to have them back!
Perkie has a full compliment of Perkettes, and we just know you’ll love Hello Mabel, with our mate Cait from Roughneck Riot bringing a different brand of mayhem with her.

Lilith Ai is something quite different – she’s going to be MASSIVE in our humble opinions.  A signer and songwriter and artist who already is beginning to ‘break through’.  Check our some of her tunes; https://soundcloud.com/lilithai

Tickets here.

YEP we’re all booked up for our Skate Aid charity gig in June.   And we’re very chuffed with the line-up.

Tickets are available now – 15 bands for £13.50.  That’s less than a quid a band.  BARGAIN!
