REAL COLLECTIVE CHRISTMAS PARTY!
Monday 21st December 2009
HOT CLUB DE PARIS (Liverpool, UK)
From the bone-shivering days of gigs in the Phoenix, these three Liverpudlian boys have captivated with their lovable Kinsella-fueled jangly triple harmonies and irresistably catchy pop songs. Now signed to Moshi Moshi Records and with album number 3 on the way, they return to play one of the smallest venues they'll have played in quite some time. Bring. The. Party!
THE GATEWAY DISTRICT (Minneapolis, USA)
Former and current members of Soviettes, Off With Their Heads, Salteens, Banner Pilot and Dear Landlord to name but a few. Quality you'd expect from such an all-star team, but imagine rather than a poor imitation of their other bands, the perfect blend of every influence forged into one seamless, rocking amalgamation of country punk, melodic pop and punk rock.
TOWN BIKE (Liverpool, UK)
Josie and the Pussycats incarnate! Super twee and sweet pop like Unlovables, the Donnas or maybe even Bis. Currently rocking their new and debut record 'Go Fight Win!', this is pretty much going to be the best party ever.
GET SERIOUS (Manchester, UK)
Reppin' the Real Collective at their Christmas Party. Party punk like Descendents, Mika Miko and/or X-Ray Spex and the Ting Tings. Whatever. Fun times presented in an easy to follow and shuffle format. Former members of The Cost Of Living, Postcards From Wakanda and Hammers.
