As we all know, it currently costs two pounds fifty to spend a penny, and approximately seven million squid for a window to throw it out. A pouch of baccy is almost twenty quid, and you'll struggle to buy two pints for a tenner. Unfortunately our Grouse eating evil imperial overlords are too busy stroking their piles, sisters, brothers and mothers to worry about the troubles of us poor mortals.
The daily chip wrappers are already talking about how the forthcoming financial troubles are going to affect our creative communities, and it got me thinking; how can I provide a low price but high quality night for you lovely, lovely people?
So we decided to create 'Super 8'.
We have invited eight wonderful acts to perform at Karma Kafe on Saturday 20th August, and golly gosh, this is a spectacular line up;
Local indie legends Bag of Cans
Indie/post punk trio Tundra
Emma Mammoth Penguins Kupa solo project The Emma Kupa Band
The spectacular Bath of Milk
Psychedelic Garage Rockers Vieira and the Silvers
Local trio Lady Di
Newcomers Beanie in the Bath
Joe – Alto45 – Bear as Huia Fun Club
The whole shebang is only £8 entry because we're all super skint. Doors 16:30 – 23:00
Tickets on sale now!!
Circa October 2017, George Bryce and George Baker had been gigging together under the name "The Council of Georges". When asked to play a larger venue (The Pig and Whistle, Norwich) they required back-up to tear down the house. So, they recruited Tom McGhie on Guitar, Sam Watts on Bass and Joe Wilson on Drums. However, this was just the beginning, with practice, Bag of Cans has become one of the "Must-see" bands in Norwich. Their live performances being **raucous, sweaty and exuberant. **
Since that first gig, Bag of Cans has played all over Norwich (Open Norwich Banking Hall, Open Norwich Club Room, The Waterfront Studio, Karma Kafe, The Mash Tun, The Rumsey Wells, UEA Blue Bar, The Garden House, The Reindeer, Gringos Bar, Be at one.), London twice (The Islington, Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen) as well as Colchester (Three Wise Monkeys). In addition to the numerous gigs they've had since that first infamous one, they won the LiveWire Battle of the Bands in 2018.
The Band have released 1 single (Clean as a Whistle), 1 EP (Why won't anyone take us seriously?), A live album (This is the reason why) and a home recorded Christmas single (Sorry Mum, I was hungover this Christmas).
