[b:794cafc71a]As some of you already know, Adebisi Shank have regretfully been forced to decline their Big Gig slot due to a flight booking error ahead of their Japanese tour.
As absolutely gutted as we are, we do have some good news as the sweaty, badass, rock’n’roll of Here Comes The Landed Gentry will now be taking the top spot at the Big Gig, stepping in with a huge, last-minute, snake-skin boot.
The Big Gig is the monthly club in Ormeau Avenue’s SPRING & AIRBRAKE showcasing some of the finest new and established bands that the North & South of Ireland has to offer. It takes place on the final weekend of every month and its latest outing sees [url=http://www.myspace.com/herecomesthelandedgentry]Here Comes The Landed Gentry[/url], [url=http://www.myspace.com/weareresistance]We Are Resistance[/url], and [url=http://www.myspace.com/axisof]Axis Of[/url] take the stage on SATURDAY October 24.[/b:794cafc71a]
The Big List's Big Gig is just getting better and better, and this October we have probably our most exciting line-up to date, with the rootsy ravings of Here Comes The Landed Gentry, the exhilarating We Are Resistance, and the blinding Axis Of.
HCTLG have been throwing their rockabilly weight around Northern Ireland and beyond, with appearances at Glasgowbury, an upcoming slot at the Hard Working Class Heroes Festival, and a host of other festivals and major shows across the country. Known for their huge performances and even bigger sound, HCTLG are as unmissable as they are irrepressible.
We Are Resistance (ex Mantic) sound like a montage of sketches by Bootsy Collins, Rage Against the Machine and Prince while on a rampant night out. Each song is a cavalcade of sound and celebration of circuitry, with vein pounding groove at its heart. Their live performances are full throttle dance-athons that no crowd is impervious to. Expect to be on your feet, punching the air along with everyone else.
Axis Of are the politically motivated clenched fist of youth. With intelligence and social insight as the back bone of their driving punk foundations, it's impossible not to be gripped by their skill and passion, with furious, frenetic thrashing one moment before slowly rolling explosive dynamical twists in the next, Axis Of are a band to behold.
[i:794cafc71a]The Big Gig No.7 takes place on the 24th October in the Spring and Airbrake. Doors 9pm, admission an incredible £4. Drink promotions through the night.
