The Library
£4.00, £3.50 advance
NOTE: Different date, different venue! The Wheatsheaf will be closed for some work for the latter part of August. We love The Library, and go there a lot, so we're happy to have found a slot in another of Oxford's grubbily independent boltholes of cultural excellence to bridge the gap.
22.10 Thrust
21.20 Ghoul
20.30 Good Canary
More Details
Thrust is the latest British incarnation of Californian eccentric songwriter Anton Barbeau, backed by members of Oxford psych-indie acts Charms Against the Evil Eye.  Anton will need no introduction to many Oxonians, but just in case: “Think of Julian Cope's sprawling Krautrock and Zappa's ironic everything [...] Barbeau deserves a place alongside them.” Logo;“File in the buried-treasure bin alongside XTC, Robyn Hitchcock, Julian Cope and the Bevis Frond” Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times; “Brain-burrowing melody and mystical psych-guitar fuzz” Spin.
A punk three-piece laced with gothic horror and with a penchant for macabre masks.  Their latest LP is called Behind The Cobweb Veil, and features called “Dresden Bats” and “Roses Ae Dead…Violets Are Black” – once again we feel the song titles do the talking.  Or should that be shouting?  Or should that be cackling maniacally with a mouth full of fake fangs?
Good Canary
Good Canary sings gallows-humour lyrics over jaunty piano riffs: she believes that, like a canary in a coalmine, a pop song can be an excellent warning.  Think Tori Amos, The Knife, PJ Harvey, with extra quirky intimacy.  “St Vincent and Regina Spektor vibes” BBC Introducing; “Fans and commentators alike are likely to be seduced by this understatedly passionate piano pop, and the more you listen to her, the more the elegance of her music makes itself apparent.” Nightshift
