The Nag’s Head. Free entry as usual.

This night will have an alt electronica vibe with casios, loop pedals and vintage drum kits.

One Man Team Dance are a two piece from High Wycombe, whose energetic live show has earned them fans throughout the UK, USA and Europe. Their frantic drumming and insane casio keyboard hooks make for something special and unique indeed. Not to be missed! Go listen to them here: http://omtd.bandcamp.com/

Theo (Loops of Death) is a one man band from London and puts on an astonishing performance. His soundcloud bio says “Taut, chugging guitar loops layer up with frenetic tapping patterns that interweave in spiralling complexity before near sub-atomically precise, powerhouse drumming clatters and builds each song into juggernaut of riffs and rhythms. To achieve something like this recorded is one thing, but to see Theo perform live is quite another as each song blurs into the next and the dazzling guitar and drum acrobatics leave jaws sagging on the faces of all who bear witness to the talent on offer. ”

Having seen Theo play, I can say that’s a pretty accurate description!

Local support comes in the form of Ben Sammon’s alt electronica project Chairs Missing. Eclectically influenced, Ben’s tracks are an impressive mix of dubstep, seapunk, reggae and drum and bass.

Should be a great night!

Mayors of Miyazaki – this is math rock at its finest. We had them over from their home town of Kingston last year and people were blown away by them. So, they’re back by popular demand! http://mayorsofmiyazaki.bandcamp.com/

Yokozuna – noisy alt punk in the vein of Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr, with extra distortion and frantic drumming. AND NYAN CAT BASS STRAP AWESOMENESS! These guys are so much fan, can’t wait to see them again. http://yokozuna.bandcamp.com/

Ragweed – filthy new wave post punk from Brighton. Lots of fun. http://ragweed.bandcamp.com/
