Hello Thor Gigs & Parties
HELLO THOR'S CHRISTMAS PARTY
- Saturday 7th December (8.30pm - 2am)
Celebrate party season by joining three of our favourite bands for a night of pop music that will make you GLAD TO BE ALIVE.
After a two year hiatus our favourite Scottish electronic folk-pop duo are back. Over The Wall have just returned with a brilliant split single with the John Knox Sex Club, and a new EP is on the way too. We couldn’t be happier that they’re stopping by Nottingham again.
“They fuse together traditional folk with electronic samples, Bontempi organs, trumpets and earnest vocals to create perfect intelligent pop songs.” The Line of Best Fit
Variously described as “a pulsing electro-Krautrock workout”, “Super Mario Bros meets Brian Eno” and a soundtrack for “smiling robots who dance exclusively to disco-affected art rock and afro pop”. Fans of lists usually describe Cantaloupe as Nottingham’s fourth best, second laziest and first sexiest band.
Their latest release is Splish/Wet Dog, the very first 12” single on Hello Thor Records - a big old Krautrock boogie banger and no mistaking!
Twinkling, woozy, acoustic folk-pop bathed in melancholy and brimming with melody and mischief. Debut album Sadness Defeated has been described as “…like Jonathan Donahue if he ditched the rest of Mercury Rev, fled to the woods and spearheaded a bizarre marching procession of lute-playing wildlife" by The Fly and as “a thing of beauty” by Huw Stephens.
We Show Up On Radar recently played a triumphant set unveiling their brand new three-piece line-up at Swn Festival.
Jumpers For Goalposts
Every Third Thursday of the month we make merry at the Alley Cafe with crepe paper and craft materials whilst a musical act plays live for our listening pleasure. It's Nottingham's fun-est, free-est felt-tips & (anti)folk night!
