REPEAT fanzine have announced the details of their Christmas show.
The popular Cambridge promoters, spearheaded by its founder Richard Rose, have built an exceptional reputation of bringing some of the finest alternative acts to the region, as well as being responsible for giving bands such as The Dawn Parade and Miss Black America early exposure.
Their Christmas show, fittingly titled A Traditional Anti-Christmas Party features four bands. Headlining are The Shrills; who are said to have the subtlety and poetry of The Smiths alongside the passion of The Manic Street Preachers. Other acts on the bill are Ten City Nation (described as an imposing, thrashing three-chord punk rock explosion) and The Super Nashwan Kids (political lyrics, with funky basslines and a punk rock sound'. Opening the evening will be female band Comic Book Heroes, who have often been compared to Kenickie. All in all, this looks like a loud, lively affair, and the perfect evening to those of you who are tired of the more traditional Christmas gig.
Details: The Cellar Bar 8, Napier Street, Cambridge, Wednesday, December 19, 8pm, tickets £4.
