Ideal Surreal is back with a bang for the fireworks season with a handful of gigs in the month of November, starting with this banger at Karma Kafe and a three-floor takeover following the recent sold-out Sink Ya Teeth / Eton Crop gig at the Louis Marchesi Crypt.
The line up is incredible and really impressive. On the top floor we have:
Birds of Hell : First gig for a while from one of the city’s finest.
Vanity Fairy : The new incarnation of Daisy Victoria.
Skinny Rodgers : The excellent Jay Ducker, formely of Cove-Hithe.
The middle floor is the Shane Special Sandwich filling, curated by Shane O’Linski and features:
Monkiboy : Mark from the Neutrinos in his unique solo project.
Joe Quinn and the Family Plans : Joe and a whole host of talented friends.
Niamh : I’ve been impressed by her recent gigs, a young and wise, talented wise old-soul with beautifully expressed emotions.
Jonathan Cocker : Superb singer-songrwiter with echoes of Nick Drake.
Whilst in the basement it’s going to get nice and loud with:
The Black Sharks : A rare gig from Black Sharks, their gigs are always a blast.
Bag of Cans : Brilliantly bonkers and glorious fun. The make me think of a 2018 Serious Drinking!
Painted Heathers : Fresh from a tour of France, this is a band on a roll (or baguette??)
Our Quiet Friends : Exciting new project featuring members of Cakes & Ale, and BK & Dad.
Tickets are just £6 advance and £7 on the door on Friday 9 November 2018.
If this isn’t enough then on Sunday (11th) there’s a further Ideal Surreal gig, this one taking place in the Playhouse Bar and featuring:
