District host a mix of bands from Liverpool and London on January 28th. Partially The night features bands with a variety of musical styles and will be a high quality, must-see event.

The evening starts with a set by Liverpool band Rongorongo. Their sound has a beautiful shoe-gaze quality yet has enough groove to lift it far above the mainstream. Like the ancient cypher the band are named after, they have a mysterious quality.

Wild Fruit Art Collective

Wild Fruit Art Collective

Wild Fruit Art Collective use discordance to bring atmosphere to their sound. Describing themselves as ‘Noisy, feral and emotionally charged’ the band often veer into experimental waters. Riding the current wave of Liverpool psychedelia, these could be ones to watch.

Making a welcome return visit to Liverpool, London-based band Madonnatron bring their experimental post-punk and haunting vocals to the city again. Giving excellent live performances across the UK last year and gaining a support slot on the Moonlandigz tour, the band go from strength to strength.

Pit Ponies

Pit Ponies

Kings of Upminster, Pit Ponies bring their hard working rock ethics to Liverpool once more. With more anthems and general gusto than most bands ever achieve. Always well received by Liverpool crowds, who appreciate the down to earth yet soaring music Pit Ponies produce, this is another chance for fans who saw their excellent set at Sound City to catch the band again.

If anything can draw you from the fireside to the chilly depths of the Baltic Triangle, these bands should do it. If you missed Madonnatron and Pit Ponies on the recent Trashmouth On Tour event at the Shipping Forecast, now is the time to make amends. Wild Fruit Art Collective and Rongorongo are already well respected members of the local scene. Make the time to catch to see what the fuss is about.

The event starts at 7.30pm and entry is £4 on the door. There is a thoughtful concession to members of bands who can get in for £2. A bargain in anyone’s books.
