Tufnell Rock Tower and Indigo Bravo promotions present : Karobela + Pollypikpocketz

WED 7 PM – 11 PM

 

Tufnell Rock Tower and IndigoBravo promotions proudly present :
Karobela : ‘Regulars on PLANET ROCK’S NEW MUSIC SHOW and featured in the LAST EVER edition of PLANET ROCK MAGAZINE, Karobela weave together an intricate tapestry of gutsy, fuzzy riffs, larger-than-life bass lines, thundering drums, soaring vocals and infectious hooks, all oozing with a sticky-sweet layer of Pop sensibility.’
Their self-titled debut EP is OUT NOW and follows hot on the heels of a string of diverse singles to bring together Karobela’s unmistakable sonic personality in a complete package for the first time – this is ‘an unquestionable aural affirmation that this is the future.’
Inspired by all styles of music, their influences are drawn from across the spectrum: citing influences from classic bands as a core, and combining it with the contemporary stylings of modern day bands such as The Black Keys, PVRIS, No Doubt, The Pretty Reckless and Royal Blood. With such a broad palette to draw from, it’s immediately apparent that Karobela’s sound is one of a kind.
Karobela are a beacon for the stage – a flood light in the dark – bringing rock to the forefront of a pop heavy world and reminding you that the stadium filling rock bands of the past are still present today.
From your first sight of tartan and leopard print, you can’t help but be drawn in by the band’s infectious character, immense stage presence and seductiveness. Karobela are putting their own very individual stamp on the world of alternative rock music, carving a path of their own and taking no prisoners along the way.
Pollypikpocketz – A very vibrant & colourful mixture of style, culture, sex, musical influence & facial hair all puked up onto a backdrop of thumping beats, grinding bass, screeching guitar & soaring harmonies. Catch them now before they become illegal.

Tufnell Rock Tower & IndigoBravo promotions present : Jades ( FR ) + Corinna Jane + The Hidden

WED 7 PM

 

Tufnell Rock Tower and IndigoBravo promotion proudly present :
Jades – from France
Take four girls, a meeting that happened in mysterious circumstances and add to this recipe a maximum of rock n roll.
They form the band in Paris at the end of 2016, playing a few dates and recording a first demo it didn’t take them long to get ready for the next round.
Make sure you catch them on their first UK tour.
Corinna Jane –
Corinna Jane is a Franco-British singer-songwriter born in North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany, but did most of her growing up in Northamptonshire, England and was fortunate enough to grow up speaking English, French and German. However, fed on a diet of MTV, her biggest passion has always been music. She began to play tunes by ear on the piano as a child, before taking up piano and singing lessons at the age of five and began composing when she was six and subsequently establishing herself as a singer-songwriter in her teens crafting her own brand of quirky (often piano driven) driven alternative singer songwriter pop.
The Hiddn : Stevoo, Matt and Luke. Rock band based in Brighton.​

IndigoBravo promotion and Tufnell Rock Tower present : Hellcats + support from Flesh Tetris and Eryx London


WED 7 PM

 

IndigoBravo promotions and Tufnell Rock Tower proudly present :

Hellcats is an all girl rock metal band from Slovenia and the first all girl metal band from that part of Europe.
The band was formed in Ljubljana by the sisters Sasha and Sonja Zagorc, who started to perform together in their childhood, while they were still at music school. Sasha was studying classical guitar and Sonja flute. Later on Sonja switched to drums and they formed a band. Due to the small size of Slovenian music space it wasn’t easy to find many female musicians. After numerous resounding concerts on big stages they twice performed at Metal Camp festival, in front of a full auditorium, Viva la Pola festival in Croatia, Metal Franconia festival in Dettelbach near Würzburgh and many more. In 2012 the all-female quartet was invited to tour Russia. In one week they played a series of gigs, including the biggest rock festival in Kaluga titled “Zheleznye devy” or “Iron Girls” and travelled from Moscow to Kaluga, Ryazan to Tula and Tambov City. In the summer of 2012 they were chosen among more than 400 groups and performed at the bigest music festival Jelen Demofest in Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina). On the competition they achieved 4th place and thus became the highest placed foreign band at the festival. In 2013 they released their debut album Warrior Princess in Milano at the beginning of their Italian tour. This year they went on a German tour for the first time, played 2 festivals (Metal Franconia& Mühlen rock festival) and at few clubs. They have released three videos, »Steelrider«, »Now is my time« and »Demon Dreams«. They are recording a new album at the moment.
+ supports from :

Flesh Tetris : London based Electro Glampunk Murder Bunnies, armed to the teeth with barbed pop hooks, addictive basslines and weaponised synths.
We make music that makes us happy.
It might make you happy too.
Eryx London : post-shit/britpunk

Tufnell Rock Tower and IndigoBravo promotions presents : Flames of Durga + Erection + Kontrol Freaks


WED 7 PM

 

Tufnell Rock Tower and IndigoBravo promotions proudly present :
£7 entry – with :
Flames of Durga – Flames Of Durga is a heavy rock n’ roll, grunge band formed by LA native twin sisters, Beah and Cecilia Romero, who’ve wrote songs together since childhood. They went through a near death experience together and knew it was the “wake up call” they needed to start a band. Now they have joined forces with their drummer Nate Million. This power trio has a lot to say and their original music channels that passion with gut wrenching howls and melodies. Their live show includes synchronized head bangs, heavy distortion, layered vocals, loud drums and ripping bass, coupled with sweat and raw emotion.
Flames Of Durga is getting ready for their Spring Tour ’17 in support of their new “Blindfolded” EP. FOD is also going back into the studio soon to record new, unreleased songs for their first full length album.
Stay tuned, Flames Of Durga is a force to be reckoned with and not slowing down anytime soon.
Press:
JANKY SMOOTH:
“For just three people on the stage, Flames of Durga generate an immense sound that resonates, almost visibly through the room.”

HOT BAND ALERT: FLAMES OF DURGA — LIKE TWO MAENADS TAKING PART IN A RITE OF DELIRIUM
“Like two maenads taking part in a rite of delirium, twin sisters Beah and Cecilia Romero of the new East Los Angeles band, Flames Of Durga sure know how to put on an impressive rock show. Not only do these fierce brunettes deliver those early female punk vibes (think Babes In Toyland and Bikini Kill), but they’re quite easy on the eyes. Without a care of their sweaty bodies and matted hair, the ladies of Flames Of Durga will get on the floor in the style of early Iggy Pop, letting out gut-wrenching howls as they immerse themselves into their punk madness.”

ERECTION – that’s juicy PPP punk from Regensburg. Or long:
Pussy-penis-power-punk! The troupe stands for their authentic art, the frivolous lyrics and pulsating songs that should joyfully erect or moisten every lame step within a second. But what kind of people is hidden behind the musical wonder dream? There is Borderlina Julitschka on vocals, baptized in alcohol by Lemmys Graces, and Alexy, who emerged directly from Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus”, on drums. This unholy duet is flanked by Schtifn J. Firebird – the already known sex god of the group Johnny Firebird – and the chaotic bass: Tino with the big dino.
ERECTION:
This is sex, this is the future, this is rock’n’roll! Swing!
​Kontrol Freaks – Hard rocking four piece band from North London, Kontrol Freaks combine the upbeat excitement and energy of hard rock heritage with a brazen modern spirit.
“Monster vocals and a band we definitely need more of” – TotalRock Radio
