Oxjam Shepherd’s Bush Takeover – 29/10

October 12th, 2011 · No Comments

How do, been a while eh?

Uncle Pedro, a band you may recall if you rummage around the backs of the cushions of your mental sofa, return from a period of unenforced slumber (read laziness) to perform in the inaugural Shepherd’s Bush Oxjam Takeover event on Saturday 29th October.

Oxjam are a series of UK-wide events happening throughout October organised by local volunteers to raise money for Oxfam. Shepherd’s Bush’s own Oxjam Takeover is a one-day festival taking over several of W12′s finest performance spaces with over 40 bands and DJ’s doing their thing with all proceeds going to Oxfam. For far more information about the event and the work Oxfam do go along to www.oxjamshepbush.org.uk

Tickets/wristbands, which get you entry to every show throughout the day, are available from www.wegottickets.com/f/2808

Early bird tickets are currently £10, with tickets on the day at £12. Also available is a group discount, should you buy 5 tickets at the same time you can go to the ball for £8 each.

You will find us slaying faces at The Goldhawk (122 Goldhawk Road, W12 8HH) at around 9pm. Should you wish to recover from that then we strongly recommend popping down to Vesbar afterwards to see our good friends Roscoe Tanner (featuring Vince on “quiet” setting). Dan’ll be heckling him from up front should you wish to join him.

Hope to see you there on the day!

Duel In The Deep – May 12th

April 19th, 2010 · No Comments

The perennially brill Duel In The Deep have asked us once again to be part of their great line ups, always varied but representative of the more kick-ass side of the rock spectrum. And conveniently have described this months acts for us all thus:

UNCLE PEDRO (for fans of McLusky, Future of the Left) They say: We play guitar, bass and drums, clap hands and chant and have been doing so since late 2003.

TOKYOTO (for fans of Catherine Wheel, Swervedriver)

ONE MAN TEAM DANCE (for fans of Hella, Battles)

SEA ABOVE, SKY BELOW (for fans of Cocteau Twins, Chapterhouse, Dreampop)

And… FREE SWEETS ON THE DOOR! ALL NIGHT! Tooth decay never rocked THIS hard.

£4 for the pleasure and the whole kit-caboodle-and-the-kitchen-sink ( © Captain Beefheart 1970) takes place at The Cross Kings conveniently located round the corner from the station.

Wednesday 12th May

Gig THIS SATURDAY @ Hackney Empire

Very last minute, I realise, but… we are playing this Saturday (28th March) as part of an evening’s entertainment at the Hackney Empire where we are appearing alongside new perennial stage buddies Pocus Whiteface. And it’s FREE, FREE, FREE!

Alas, it is not in the actual Theatre bit itself but in the Marie Lloyd Bar where undoubtedly the pre-show drink crowd will be both shocked and appaled at what they’ve walked into. We will aim to please. Orders for sludge metal jams for the interval will be taken at the bar.

Deeeeets! -

Blind Baby Animal @ Marie Lloyd Bar, Hackney Empire

291 Mare St
London, E8 1EJ

Uncle Pedro and Pocus Whiteface and music in between and after. Bands on from 8.30pm
