Oliver Shaw Experience/Sister Mercedes/Close To The Sun
Get Cheap Tickets Here

An artist most worthy of your attention as 2020 looms is one Oliver Shaw. Click on the pic and discover more. The Oliver Shaw Experience display ace echoes of Kurt Cobain, yer Gallaghers, The Libertines and other recent artistry but with a trad Brit folk slant, and not a little psychedelic sauce and a hint of avant garde punkery. A lot going on, and it’s all good. The garage twang puts you in mind of The Allah Las too, and that’s no bad thing. . All manner of great stuff coalesces in Oliver’s fertile musical back yard, from psych to blues to twisted soul and experimentally (un-)hinged alt rock. On stage 10pm, get yourself along earlier for some marvelous support from Sister Mercedes, who began as the alter ego of Darren Van Asten from nifty noughties mover shakers Junkbox, but are now fashioned into a fully fledged freakout fellowship with ex members of The Intolerable Kidd & Friends and The Lonesome Cowboys from Hell. Pithy, punky, tales des nos jours. Ah, oui. Close To The Sun open proceedings at 8pm. Think psych and prog and wigout rocknroll combining beatifically in some serious soundscapes. In fact don’t think it, feel it. Be there.
