Sweeping The Nation Presents... #5

Still looking to break the magic twenty-through-the-door barrier, we present our fifth night at Leicester Firebug with a bill we're particularly proud of, and one that Tim Daily Growl told us was surely the best the city has put on recently (admittedly he's not from round here and doesn't take much interest in the Midlands gig scene, but even so).

Offsetting this, at the moment the Facebook event has seven confirmed attendees, three of whom don't count. Hard sell time.

On the 28th March at the aforementioned Firebug, from 8pm or whenever the soundcheck overruns til, these:

"...strong on existential angst, Arab Strap rage and self loathing...equally capable of the lovelorn misery of King Creosote or James Yorkston... Meursault do it uncommonly well:completely absorbed and unselfconcious, they vitally don't use the noise as an excuse not to write any tunes" (The Word)

Stairs To Korea
"Reassuringly miserable and realistically optimistic, this dude from the Brainlove Records stable of excellent weirdness is another fine addition to the music stratosphere." (Huw Stephens, Kruger magazine)

Penfold Gate
"Brilliant, exciting and energetic... I can't wait to see them live" (Artrocker)

It's a fiver on the door or £4 online. Here's the and Songkick registers. That's all.
