Event description

Description

Popes Of Chillitown + The Hostiles + The Platitudes + Broken 3 Ways.
4 of the finest high energy New Wave Ska bands from all 4 corners of the UK are coming to Wigan for a night of high octane riotous live Ska/Punk.

POPES OF CHILLITOWN are a Ska/Dub/Punk band from London, who have been rampaging through the UK scene for the last few years like an unstoppable grooving, skanking juggernaut. A straight-up ska-punk band they are not, expertly mashing the energy of upbeat ska, punk, 2-tone and drum & bass with the groove of reggae and dub, adding in the lyrical flow of hip hop and finishing it all off with a generous helping of catchy melodies and hooks.

The Hostiles: Underpinned by the two-pronged brass backbone of double trombone, and the band’s relentless drive to perform, since releasing their debut album in 2009, The Hostiles have played hundreds of gigs and captured cult followings in Scotland, England and far beyond. Described by Punktastic.com as ‘upbeat, effervescent, bouncy and danceable’ The Hostiles transatlantic origins are reflected with their US ska-punk slamming Scottish ska-core sound.

The Platitudes: Approximately 8 people from Leeds/Sheffield who love to cobble together ska, punk and other junk whilst getting distracted by video game theme tunes and shoddy covers. Expect feel good 90's US/UK Punk Ska vibes.

Broken 3 Ways: In 2018 the band settled as a 4-piece that include Jay Aldred (Trumpet), Chris Gartman (Guitar), Fal (Bass), and Ben Green (Drums) and within a year they have gained a number of support slots with bands such as Reel Big Fish, Mad Caddies, The Interrupters, Big D and the Kids Table, The Skints, Random Hand, The English Beat, The Beat and Neville Staple Band. Not to mention a couple of festival slots including Boom Town.
