Dayton, OH @ Bind Bobs

Our opening night of our USA Tour

WONK UNIT
“Wonk Unit have managed the almost impossible task of having found their own sound.It’s punk son, but not as we know it”
https://wonk-unit.bandcamp.com/

The Raging Nathans
“Heavy-driving low end holding down fuzz-filled bratty pop hooks coupled with bummer party lyrics about relationships and altered states. When three of the best and most consistent record labels are coming together to release your three-piece from Dayton, OH’s first full-length, you know you’re on to something”
https://radgirlfriendrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-raging-nathans-losing-it

New Regrets
“With a distorted and slightly gruff sound, backed with a steadily fast pace from start to finish, this is nothing but straight-to-the-point punk rock. Negative Approach meets Fear, packed with deep, cutthroat, and growling vocals.”
Plus Ed froim Toxic Reasons as frontman.

Wonk @ The Fighting Cocks, Kingston

I thought punk was about ideas, anger, being disconcerting about who and what you respect, about questioning the status quo (especially Status Quo). But if you are looking for the home of modern punk rock in the capital then The Fighting Cocks in Kingston upon Thames has much more of a claim to that title than the 100 Club does.

2 Stages, short 20 minute sets (the perfect length – all killer, no filler).

The amazing world famous Wonkfest buffet – please bring a tray of food – Deeeeeelicious! Hooray, it’s my fav.Bring Meat,bring veggie, bring vegan.Tables and tables of wonder!

Breakfast!!! Yay! We’ll be serving free bacon sandwichs from 11.15! 300 last year in an hour!! Weeeeeeeeeeee!

Foodbank – We’ll be collecting for the local foodbank again.Filled a van last time coz you are lovely! Thank you!
