The night organised by Ace Bushy Striptease is having it’s 3rd (2nd) outing, and the line up’s looking pretty ace, so I’m thinking we’re pretty lucky to cadge a slot at the bottom of it. Here’s the poster and some information from the facebook event below.
The 3rd edition of Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff will include performances from:
Gushing fuzz pop hits with shouting and drums all the way from London. They’ve recently recorded a session for Radio 1 and they’re about to put out real life singles and there is a video they have made.
Comparison: Beat Happening and Hundreds, Tens and Units.
Real awesome pop punk from Birmingham. They have guitar all over the place and then these other parts of their songs which are really catchy and brill.
Comparison: Jimmy Eat World and something poppier and with more girl backing vocals than JEW.
Harmony-tastic post-emotional pop about girls and stuff like that. They’re from Oxford and quite new but brilliant despite that (lolz). The kind of band Laura Wolf would like listening to I feel.
Comparison: Brand New and Dogs In 1930’s Clothing.
Chordgazing (the gazing is the best part of what they do) band from Birmingham who take pop music to thoughtful rolling-down-hills places it hasn’t been before and post-rock to thoughtful upbeat-and-brief-enough-for-it-to-actually-be-enjoyable places.
Comparisons: Field Mice and something a bit heavier but still lovely.
