Wonk Unit & Raging Nathans added to our April 2018 BBQ Gig!

Wonk Unit april bbq 2018

YES!  We are dead chuffed to be able to announce that our amazing friends WONK UNIT will return once again to Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge in Stamford, this time as part of their dual headline show with the USA band RAGING NATHANS!

It’s rare one of our gigs features a touring band from the states, so make sure you get tickets for this one, as our Wonk Unit gigs nearly always sell out, and our all dayers with vegan BBQ are legendary 🙂   We plan to have a bit of a flea market too, so if you’re someone arty or who has hand-made stuff to sell, get in touch with us!  We plan to support the local exotic pet refuge, and they may well be bringing OWLS with em!

The line-up is completed with five other great bands, some old friends a couple of bands new to Scary Clown Presents… events.

More details here – and £13.50 advance tickets are already available for one of the most fun DIY Punk gigs of 2018!

Thanks for a PunkTastic 2017!

Punk xmas 2017 gig poster

Our small gang of reprobates at The Scary Clown Presents… would like to thank every single band, and every one of you who came along to our gigs in 2017.  After initially believing we would be winding down… we actually probably put on more shows than ever, extending ourselves from our lovely base at Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge to put smaller acoustic shows on at the Ostrich Inn in Peterborough town centre.  This year has also seen us invest some of our hard earned dosh in a back-line – adding a brand new Marshall guitar amp, a big chunky bass amp, and a set of drum shells (and now high-hat and cymbal stands!).  This allows the visiting bands to come ‘light’ – and hopefully encourage more bands to come along.

We have lots planned for 2018 – a gig in March is already organised (tickets going up soon), our April BBQ and Gig is pretty much fully booked up with bands – and there’s going to be an exciting announcement about the dual headliners of that!  We also have our Skate-Aid 5 all dayer in the planning stage, with bands being approached for that line-up.

We’ve just got our DIY Punk XMAS PARTY gig to come, on 9th December…

Venue:  Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge,
Tix:  £7 advance, or pay £8.50 on the night.
Date:  Saturday 9th December 2017

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):

Scary Clown Krispy Brown Creates Gig Listing Site

diy punk network

Our webmaster and beer brewer/drinker Krispy Brown has put his web skills to a new project – a new place to list and find gigs, which will concentrate on the DIY Punk scene, but also also gigs of all genres to be added > GigsGigsGigs.co.uk

It links to Facebook, pages with events to pull the gigs into the website automatically – so if you have a venue / promotion / band page and want your punk gigs listing, nip over and either register and add them yourself, or use the contact page to let Krispy know your Facebook page and he can do the rest.

Let’s hope it’s a useful resource for everyone in the scene – it’s obviously free to list/use!

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.
