Tramlines Promoter’s Picks – Part 2

[wide]Preview Banner11 | Tramlines Promoters Picks   Part 2[/wide]As always there’s a heap of planning your Tramlines weekend, we asked some of the cream of local promoters to tell us who they were most looking forward to seeing at Tramlines, and here’s what they said:

Nope – Audacious Art Space – Friday – 11pm

“Armed with two drummers, a guitar and a small synth, Nope dictate the tale of how civilization will begin developing rudimentary machines following a post-apocalyptic future. Expect a juggernaut of rhapsodic riffs, hypnotic, calculated drumming and precise, head-tickling grooves, to increase the likelihood of a traditional audience freak-out.”

Loic – Audacious Art Experiment

Splashh – The Great Gatsby –Friday – 2am/The Millennium Galley – Friday – 9pm

“Mine is definitely splashh. Fronted by two dudes from Byron Bay, they’re an effortlessly cool band that are going to be one everyone’s lips in 6 month. Grunge revivalists with a heavy dose of psychedelica thrown in for good measure. Touring with Howler this month.”

Matt – Uneven Blonde

Splashh-All I Wanna Do

Alarm Bells – New Music Stage – Saturday – 6:15

“Some of their number slayed the New Music Stage last year (as well as every other time we ever put them on) as Dananananaykroyd. This is a new band, and they don’t have any music available to listen to online yet – but they’ve already supported Bloc Party and Maps and Atlases. Let’s face it, given the personnel: going to be ace.”

Rob – Harley Live

Death Rattle – Dada – Friday – 8:45

“Rising from the ashes of the That Mouth – who had something of a reputation for mind blowing performances – the electro doom pop duo are already building up buzz. Check out the video for ‘The Dig’ if you want to get a feel for the creepy vibes…”

Max – Small Ideas

Death Rattle-The Dig

James Yorkston – Folk Forest – Saturday – 7pm

“James Yorkston is simply one of the most respected and influential singer/songwriters on the Scottish indie-folk scene. He has played with and inspired a whole host of incredible artists of which several we ve had on before hold him in the highest esteem. I’m looking forward to his storytelling and charm in and out of songs, and have heard nothing but god things about his live sets. “

Tim – Opus Acoustic

James Yorkston-The Hills & The Heath

Lulu James – Harley – Saturday – 11pm

“Not only is Lulu stunning, she has an incredible voice and the music
is excellent. Already having many deals on the table, I can see the
next year being a big one for her.”

Tom – No Uniform/Plug James-Rope Mirage

We/Are/Animal – Academy – Saturday- 9pm

“We/Are/Animal hail from the North Wales villages below Mount Snowdon; where they frequently trek off into the wilds to contemplate life and make music. They are an untainted and unabashed band who mix driving LCD drum patterns with defiant fuzzy guitars; they’ve blazed a trail across the UK this year playing at Camden crawl, Liverpool Sound City, and host of other city dates. Bold, beautiful, rhythmic and savage.”

Tom – Xrayhorse

We/Are/Animal – Luminous Lights
