TRIBES /STRANGE NEWS FROM ANOTHER STAR / NOWHERE BOY
THURSDAY 7th JULY
DOORS 8pm /+16
£5adv : direct link for tickets:
‘With their mumbling vocals and growly guitars, facial fuzz and general air of dishevelment, Tribes appear to worship at the altar of Cobain and Co. Their track Whenever couldn’t be more Nevermind-ish if it tried, which presumably it won’t do because exertion would be antithetical to the slacker ethos. Their songs have choruses that sound like the bit in Smells Like Teen Spirit where Kurt went, “Hello, hello, hello”, in that sardonic droney manner that suggested sardonicism was his way of dealing with anguish and pain. He would have droned for America had he heard Tribes. ‘ -New Band of the day – Guardian
Support from Strange News from Another Star & Nowhere Boy.
