PORTALS VII - BBQ ft. Her Name Is Calla & more
Entry Requirements: 18+
After a couple of soujourns to East London, Portals is back at the Brixton Windmill for another BBQ bonanza day-out. This time it's a Saturday too and with the night tube from Brixton station, there's no excuse not to party with us late into the night!
We've got another fantastic lineup of experimental rock artists from across the country and we hope you can join us.
Echoes & Dust and in violet DJs will be playing the finest tunes around to entertain you in between bands.
All tickets include food from the BBQ*
HER NAME IS CALLA HNIC is absolutely one of the most important bands in the UK experimental rock scene. Combining stunning post-rock with soulful folk and varied instrumentation, their sound is both charming and mesmerising. For Fans Of: Maybeshewill, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Radiohead "HNIC smash the compass that flickers between rage and timid frustration and become conquerors of all" (NME)
Another band at the heart of the UK post-rock scene for years now, Upcdownc play ferocious math/post-rock with no holding back. Loud, fast, technical and mind-blowing. FFO: And So I Watch You From Afar, This Will Destroy You, Poly-Math
DEATH AND THE PENGUIN
Noisy alt-rock with post-rock influences, DATP are one of London's best diy bands right now. FFO: Arcane Roots, early Muse, Oceansize
An unstoppable one-man-math-and-post-rock machine, Theo is absolutely one of our favourite acts in the world. It's a joy to be able to welcome him back to Portals after his last performance at Portals II back in November 2015 which blew everyone's socks off. FFO: Brontide, Russian Circles, Mogwai
Smooth yet textured, mellow yet impassioned, I.This.Yes should absolutely be on your 'Ones To Watch' list for up and coming bands. A math-y electronic foundation provides the starting point for a tenacious post-rock sound. FFO: Luo, Physics House Band, Explosions in the Sky
Blisteringly technical math-rock duo Land Wars represent impressive speed with loads of hooks and no pretentious over-playing. Get down early to check them out and they will make your day. FFO: Don Caballero, Slint, Giraffes? Giraffes!
Tickets availabe from See and WeGotTickets. Early bird tickets available until 1st April.
*Please note that the BBQ usually starts at around 5pm but this may be subject to change. We do not guarantee that there will be food for everybody so we recommend you arrive early to avoid disappointment.
