Bar opens 5pm, live music from 7pm, DJs til 4am. Ages 18+ FREE ENTRY

HEAVY HEART - Brilliant anthemic and heart-felt melodic punk rock from Nantes, France. Last seen at the now deceased Buffalo Bar, what must be about 2 years ago now with an absolutely storming set. If you were there, you'll know the score. If not, two words will adequately describe what to expect... TOTAL. BANGERS. Highly recommended if you dig the sounds of the likes of Iron Chic. Listen to Heavy Heart on Bandcamp

QUENTIN SAUVÉ - Absolutely class post folk from Laval, France featuring Quentin Sauvé from Deathwish's BIRDS IN ROW. Compared to his other band, Quentin Sauvé's sound is miles apart, carefully balancing elegiac chords and untethered, impassioned vocals. If you're a fan of Kinsella's “Owen”, Quentin will be right up your street. Seriously not to be missed. Listen to Quentin Suave on Bandcamp

WERECATS - Spinning punk rock tales from the underside of life on the mean streets of South London, Werecats specialise in hooky and harmony-ridden slices of garage-inflected punk rock. Having sharpened their skills (and claws) on stages from Plymouth to Glasgow, their debut album conjures up catchy, punky powerpop odes to werewolves, dogs, zombies and a cherished catmobile. Listen to Werecats on Bandcamp

LIVE, DO NOTHING - Featuring ex and current members of DEADLINES and ROSEHIP TEAHOUSE, Cardiff quartet Live, Do Nothing blend the sweet sounds of indie pop with the often rowdiness of punk to create a sound which is truly theirs; cute but torn around the edges. Imagine the likes of Diet Cig jamming with a non-creepy Weezer and a synth player. Listen to Live, Do Nothing on Bandcamp

BODYHACKER - Loud and fierce noise punk with members stretched between Cardiff and Brighton. No guitars in sight, just drums and a bass, and a hell of a lot of shouting. Not massively dissimilar to member Josh's other band Salt Bath. Absolutely class, but don't take our word for it. Check out their demo and pick up a copy from Pretty Hate Records. Oh, and come to the show! Listen to Bodyhacker on Bandcamp
