Thurs 9 Nov
Are you like a zombie, wandering aimlessly up and down store aisles searching for the latest beat? Tried that sound and didn’t like it? Tired of that? Craving something fresh that will pump you up? Look no more because Shopping, the post-punk indie band is the green-light special today. Rachel Aggs (guitar), Billy Easter (bass) and Andrew Milk (drums) have all the necessary ingredients on your list for a fun party!
All of them were in the previous groups, also from the DIY scene – As Ondas, Cover Girl, Golden Grrrls, Sacred Paws, Trash Kit, Vertical Slump and Wet Dog. Shopping formed in 2012 and pressed about 1,000 copies of debut album Consumer Complaints on the drummer’s own Milk Records in 2013. They got so popular that they couldn’t do it on their own again, so their second offering in 2015, Why Choose was put out by FatCat. With songs like For Your Money, Long Way Home, Straight Lines and Take It Outside, they’ve built their reputation as an up-and-coming band on the scene.
They’ve been compared to others that got you moving like ESG, Delta 5 and the one of the best bands that made you both think and dance, Gang Of Four. The B-52’s also come to mind. Shopping have a new single, The Hype out, so make sure to put them in your basket.
Tickets: £7. Info: 029 2039 7933 (RLR)
