Shelves + You And I Collide + Monster Cat [GIG]
Excited to be playing at Home Club again. Quite possibly our favourite venue. Not that we’ve played many venues. Below is the description of the gig from their webpage. Also, keen to watch You And I Collide and Monster Cat. Both very “now.” What a line-up. We play first at 9PM. So come early. Then stay for Beat! later.

You And I Collide
Since their formation in late 2009, YOU AND I COLLIDE have been writing music, recording cheap demos and getting them to reach new listeners everyday. Drawing influences from the almighty Foo Fighters and Jimmy Eat World, their music will always remind you that sing-along punk rock anthems and catchy head-bobbing tunes are still the way to go today. They will commence recording their debut full-length album some time in mid 2011.

Born out of frustration, MONSTER CAT is a reaction to a culture of shackling life templates and suffocating social expectations.
An avalanche of questions, doubts and personal fears was the breeding ground for their debut release, Mannequins. With their own brand of mangled folk-rock that drifts from haunting and gentle to driving and cathartic, MONSTER CAT takes great pains to craft songs that reveal more with each listen.
Their debut Mannequins is available now for both digital and physical purchase athttp://www.monstercat.net/
