Photobucket Photobucket Surfer Blood - Digital // 8th March 2011 Surfer Blood return to the UK, still touring following the success of brilliant debut Astro Coast.

Photobucket Photobucket Napoleon IIIrd - Undertone // 7th March 2011 Napoleon IIIrd combines all of the weirdo electro noise of Fuck Buttons, the big sounds of Arcade Fire and The Flaming Lips, and the experimental pop sensibilities of Animal Collective. This show, promoted by Loose oncemore, should be an explosive one – especially given support comes form VVOLVES, Pagan Wanderer Lu, and Lt. Meat.
