Slanted & Enchanted Presents to you a May Day Holiday Bonanza and post-Hinterland showcase:

ELKS

ELKS on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

Hailing from the Big Smoke, these cool cats are signed to the marvellous Unlabel Records [home to the likes of Charlottefield and Instruments (Make Music)] and specialise in dynamic, energetic and measured math-influenced post-hardcore pop. Melodramatic, schizophrenic and bloody ace!

85 BEARS

85 BEARS on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

Part noise; part prog; part math; ALL BALLS. Another group of Londoners who have received glowing reviews following support slots with Enablers and Young Widows. Although entirely instrumental (straight forward guitar, bass and drums), these guys sound somewhat akin to Stateside heroes Unwound, Battles and Faraquet.

DEBUTANT

Debutant on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

Currently a one-man mission concentrating on simple, dreamy songs augmented by a build-up of shimmering atmospheres, interspersed by looped and layered guitar instrumentals. Textured one-man dream-pop.

SUNDAY MAY 3RD (May Day Holiday weekend)

THE TUNNELS (Room 2)

7:30PM

4

Final Slanted & Enchanted concert for a little wee while.

Pie sandwiches sound amazing.

I do all the posters myself, with the exception of two recently (the 20th March club night one and the We Are Trapped in Kansas/Cast of the Capital one - I had outside parties kindly volunteer their skills and time for those).

A pie sandwich is amazing. A delicious treat for those who don't value their life enough to look after it. Recommended

I never knew you did your own posters. Mad skills.

I also like the sounds that these bands make, so I will hopefully pop along.

agreed. your fonts are really decent and the simple colours make them look dead pleasant. i want to play slanted and enchanted!

Well get a band on the go, Huw!

Oh, and make sure you're good. :D

Glad y'all like the posters. It's a good excuse for me to dust-off the artbox. :up:

I'll try my very best to be there! 85 Bears are immense.

Cool. This one will run much earlier than the Vessels, Wintermute et al gig, so you should catch all the acts this time! :up:

Actually, we're quite close now to being able to play. But not this close. Bah. :(

And this gig is on a Sunday and we practice on Sundays. Mince. I'll speak to the guys about moving practice to Monday so we can make it along, some of this sounds tasty!

:popcorn:

You should try and come - I think you'll get a lot out of 85 Bears and Elks. :up:

Be good to see y'all, too.

Good grief. I saw both Elks and 85 Bears in Glasgow last night and they were both extremely impressive.

I don't think they'll let you down.

PS - This is tomorrow night, innit.

STAGETIMES:

Debutant: 20:30 - 21:00

85 Bears: 21:15 - 21:55

Elks: 22:15 - 23:00

Which means most people will be able to catch any last buses they need to get home without missing too much (if, indeed, anything).

I hope to see y'all there.
