The Slowdance Final Show w/ Chillerton & Peachfuzz

So hey, my band The Slowdance are calling it a day after just over two years of playing shows and will be playing for one last time at Cardiff's delightful Clwb Ifor Bach. All of our currently booked dates have been cancelled including A Wilhelm Scream in TJs and Off With Their Heads in Le Pub (Well they're still going on, we just won't be playing).

It will be on Friday 3rd October 2008, which is the week after Strike Anywhere and the week before Off With Their Heads, two lovely shows that everyone should head down to. Doors will be at 7:00 as there is a relatively strict curfew of 10pm

The Slowdance
Its us, we're nowt special, but we had a laugh.

Pompeys finest, currently spread far and wide across the south of England. Album out on Boss Tuneage, good lads.

Git Some @ Coyote Bar with support TBC!

(Denver, Usa / 1234 Go Records)

Coyote Bar, Thursday 27th November 2008

Despite being around for only 4 years, these guys are already well known for being relentless touring machines and playing amazing yet extremely intense shows. This non-stop touring is in the blood for Git Some. Whether it's Kingdom Of Magic, White Dynamite or 2/4 of Planes Mistaken For Stars - each member has been around the block when it comes to putting on an amazing rock show!!

GIT SOME is a band from Denver, Colorado consisting of 4 dudes who grew up on 80's punk rock, Reagan-era America, and shitty weed, discharging cathartic bursts of noise that shatter angst and inhibitions. Cosmic rock, by way of wild abandon, loud-ass guitar, bass and drums, and an explosive singer. It's all the good things about hardcore stripped of the agenda, all the great things about metal and hard rock stripped of the unnecessary machismo.

So yeah, there is the blurb. They are actually fucking great though. We'll be sorting out supports soon, in the meantime, check out the tracks on the MySpace and a sweet tour poster and picture!
