Battle KON 3: The Thumb Wars

Sat 26th Aug
Battle KON 3: The Thumb Wars
Retro Bar, Manchester

As we the Soldiers of Joy take on our first small tour of the U.K. with some of our dear friends we host the Manchester date as a BATTLE-KON.

So we present to you Battle-kon 3: THUMB WARS!!!

Get thumbing people and give us some thumbs

Joining us on this date we have the following awesome bands to sink your teeth into and get thoroughly wasted too are:

THE PERFORMANCE ENHANCING SUPPOSITORIES
Glasgow
The perfect embodiement of Gob shite rock n roll. We like to call it Gob n roll. These like to gob off and tell you to fuck off. Shame is we would if they weren’t so damn good! Great heavy rock n roll like Dead Kennedys playing some AC/DC while telling someone to fuck off. Get down and leave your “feels” at home cos they will get hurt.

LUPEN TOOTH
Bristol
Horror punk that actually look the part all the way from fuckin ages away! Think early Misfits but without the ego and Blitzkid and The Ramones. We saw these tear Alma a new one last year and they were fandabby dozey. So pull on your brothel creepers and muck em up doing the zombie shuffle!

DISCHORD
Blackpool
Melodic hardcore punk circa 1998. Like memorable hooks? Love a good catchy sing alongable chorus? Get moist at a beautiful atmospheric peice of music? Love slamming down to buzzsaw guitars? Then my friends you are gonna need to have a nessesisity wank for these cos you’re gonna blow your load! If you like AFI, Alkaline trio, Fucked up and Gallows then these are for you.

KRINGER AND THE BATTLE KATZ
Skeletors Throne room
No Battle kon would be complete without the mighty BKZ now would it? Groove metal, Thrash metal, Hardcore, Nu metal and bad jokes. Throwing in a trombone, corpse paint and a bad man swagger we will make you ache in both good and bad ways. Get ready to dance and mosh!

TEDDY’S LEG
Birmingham
Insane danceable hardcore with the odd bit of trumpet and madness! These are your new favourite band!

TIO RICO
Manchester
Blending ska, punk, grunge and heavy rock to create something truly their own. Check these bad men of Rock n roll out and you will ot be dissapointed! If you like Volkswagens talk to Scott!

B.F.TI.
Manchester
Burning from the Inside are straight up street punk to sing along too. What more do you want? A singer who seems to be built of rubber and some nice “whoahs” to throw around? Done!

4pm till 10pm

£6 on the door

Peace out mofo’s
