We are back! We couldn’t hold off any longer, we’ve really missed putting on noisy, experimental gigs around here, so we’ve decided to take a gamble and pay out to hire a venue for the time being.

It’s gonna be at the Billabong in Rochester, around the back of the Function Rooms. It’s been newly soundproofed, so we can be a bit louder than most venues allow. Bring earplugs if you need them!

The bands…….well, we’re really excited to have Wire Mother play their first ever gig, with Shar from the amazing Let Our Enemies Beware and experimental improvisational band Black Light Brigade. It promises to be intense.

There’s also Mister Lizard, featuring Thomas Close of Screen Wives. They play crazy punk with a real weird angle, there’s often various states of undress. Bring blindfolds if you need them.

Frau Pouch are a local band who play weird punk based on sci fi, fantasy and b-movies. They’re playing this because it’s one less band to pay if we make any money after the cost of the venue hire 😀

Entry is £4.

We really look forward to seeing you, it’s the support of you beautiful people that keeps independent music alive in Medway.

We’re teaming up with other promoters so that we can afford to use the few remaining venues left in Medway which will allow loud, amplified music with drums. This Saturday sees us collaborating with the Junk Depository to put on a gig featuring four local bands at the Billabong Club in Rochester.

We’re teaming up with Manny’s Music for a Halloween party at the Singapora Lounge in Rochester. It’ll be our first night there, so we don’t know what to expect but we hope it’ll be very successful as it’s a wonderful venue. The gig itself will be in the intimate basement space which we feel will be just right for our nights. It reminds us of the first DIY nights we ever went to in Camden at the Constitution where Rip This Joint held their gig nights.

The line up is as follows:

Silent Front
London’s long-standing DIY stalwarts Silent Front have been hawking an abrasive blend of post-punk and hardcore for over a decade. The last 2 years has seen SF recruit a new drummer, release a split 7″ (with Shield Your Eyes) and a full length (Dead Lake), start a record label (Triplejump) and tour Europe and the UK extensively – playing the Camden Crawl and Moorfest as well as shows with the likes of The Hope Conspiracy, Black Elk, Pneu, Hey Colossus, Bilge Pump
and That Fucking Tank.
