Pure Rawk Tour News Round Up #4


Yup, you’ve guessed it, it’s another of our occasional tour round-up features bringing all the latest news from gig world …

***

First off, some bad news unfortunately – the hotly anticipated Flesh For Lulu/Jonny Cola & The A-Grades/The Priscillas gig on January 18th at the Borderline has been cancelled due to FFL guitarist Will Crewdson suffering a shoulder injury. The gig will be re-arranged as soon as he’s back to full fitness – in the meantime, get well soon Will.

However, for those looking for some sleazy rock ‘n’ roll action in January (which, let’s face it, is never usually very busy on the live music front), you could always go to the Buffalo Bar on the 24th to catch a rare London show by Nottingham filth wizards The Hip Priests at the Some Weird Sin club night. Should be a good one that.

Following on from last year’s excellent “The Terror Of Modern Life” album, Goldblade will be back on the road for a few gigs in the early weeks of the year. You can catch their always-explosive live show at Corby Zombie Hut on 18th January and at the Victoria Inn in Derby on 22nd February.
