Comical Solstice


SO far as smart press pictures go, you would be hard pushed to find something better than this.

Furthermore, new city prog-rock aces Solstice didn’t even have to ask for it!

When not penciling for the ridiculously popular Marvel comics, acclaimed artist Barry Kitzon likes his music, and he really likes Solstice, hence the fabulous image which he offered them.

Tomorrow night, the band will be playing to their local followers with a gig at The Craufurd Arms in Wolverton.

Solstice have plenty more tasty live bites planned for the summer too – including a headliner at Camden Underworld, and a nice slot on the Cambridge Rock Festival.

We’ll bring you all the news in the coming weeks.

In the here and now though, lets concentrate on tomorrow’s show, and Infinite Wisdom will support, giving you a good excuse to get along nice and early.

Those of you who keep a smart eye glued to our coverage of the Secklow Sound chart may remember the lads hit the top spot a couple of weeks back.

Tickets for the gig are a tenner.

>NEW city noises The Sassy Judys and Ryker Sear will be live upstairs in the Slug & Lettuce later this evening, playing under the Break Out MK banner, which complements the breakout DJ sets that keep things moving nicely on the lower level of the Theatre District watering hole.

There are loads of drinks offers and a friendly £3 admission. Stuff that early night, get out and catch some noise, from 9.30pm.

>IndieScreet Promotions are on the ball with two gigs happening this week.

On Sunday, Peace, Dirty Fair and Mitchell Taylor take over the Craufurd Arms in Wolverton.

NME have called Peace ‘the new Maccabees’ and they have been making waves supporting the likes of the Vaccines and Tame Impala...painting a 10ft peace symbol all over a London venue got ‘em attention too.

Not sure it’s the sort they were after, mind.

Tickets are £3 for that show, and £8 for Tuesday’s session at the SNO! bar with The Wave Pictures and The Occasionals.
