More Details
Sinews are connected by membership with many other Oxford bands, such as Egrets, The Dumplings, and GTI alumni Spank Hair. They make a gloriously chunky mix of heavy grunge, post-hardcore and noise rock or, as Nightshift put it, a "Cathartic bast of unfettered discontent and distortion""
Hybrid Kid
Brighton's Hybrid Kid make indie with a slight flavour of US alt rock, and they do it with panache. "Their latest single '1 2 3' is a delightful slice of sharp edged guitar work matched with Devo sounding vocals. It floats the line of indie and punk (with a slice of avant garde) in masterful fashion." Clunk Magazine. "The trio clearly do have a knack for this whole music thing!" Ryt good magazine. "Outstanding guitar work...bloomin' fantastic" Tom Robinson, BBC6Music
Queen Eleanor's Cross
A new goth/post-punk duo featuring Jim, AKA S.P.U.N.K.L.E., the only man Nightshift has ever called a genius "and not regretted it in the morning". With chiming chorus guitar, antediluvian drum machine thumps, and camp theatrical vocals, QEX sound like a band who got lost in the cellar of the Batcave in 1982 and only just clawed their way out.


Our gigs are often highly eclectic, so there might be a wide variety of punters in our little venue. We want everyone to have a good time, so relax, express yourself and have a good gig, but be thoughtful of other people and don't ruin their night with your fun. Basically, just be considerate and nice, and everyone will be happy.
Naturally, anyone who is actively aggressive, or who abuses anyone else on the grounds of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, Monster Munch flavour preference, or whatever the hell else might make a bigot irrationally angry, is out the door.


In return, we'll make every effort to create a warm and pleasant environment, and we'll try our hardest to keep to the timetable (music starts at approximately 20.00, and will go on till about 22.15). Also, we've kept the door price as low as we can, but rest assured that GTI is a non-profit event, and all the money after expenses goes to the performers.


Our venue is a small, unventilated room, at the top of a pretty steep flight of stairs, so please bear these facts in mind when considering buying tickets (and sorry to anyone whom this excludes). We do have some folding chairs available for anyone who would have trouble standing for the duration of the concert, so please ask at the door if you require one.
Also, as our venue is part of a pub, attendees and performers must be 18+.
