This Easter Sunday we are getting rad in our spiritual (and my actual) home of New Cross.
As Spring has (supposedly) sprung we have put together an all day line up of the finest pop punk we can get our grubby little mits on!
Also as an Easter treat. Myself, the bands, and anyone else who wants to join in, will be stashing CDs, shirts, patches, cassettes, 7 inches, stickers and anything else we can find, around the venue for a PUNK ROCK EASTER EGG HUNT!
There is a ticket concession for those that turn up in Easter Bunny/ Egg/ Jesus themed fancy dress and there will be a competition with the prize of an Easter Cake (non specific nice cake!).
Doors are at 3 pm and the lineup looks a little like this…
Booze is cheaper before 8pm and me and Chunky may do our 90s school disco DJ set after.

Also remember it’s a bank holiday so CHIIIIIiiiiiillllll.

Incase you don’t know here’s a bit of background…
Scheisse Minnelli is a HC Punk band based in Germany. The band was started in late 2003 by two native Californians and two Germans. The current line up takes it back to that original 50/50 brew with Germans Dudel and Dash holding the rythm tight being joined by California’s two most wanted Samuel el Action on vocals and introducing delinquent Mikey P.on guitar.

Tim Holehouse and Forest Pooky on Tour! March 28- April 6!
We are very lucky to be working with our favourite UK Delta Blue Troubadour, Tim Holehouse.
Tim has been a standout character on the international live circuit for many years now. His personal brand of soulful, but twisted dark blues and carved himself a place as an artist you don’t forget.
He lives and breathes the road and here at Till The Wheels we consider ourselves privelaged to be working with him.
He will be joined by Forest Pooky, an American who is currently based in France. Forest plays an exciting and upbeat emo punk acoustic set that harks back to the days of Revelation Records and Deep Elm.
We currently have a few dates and are in talks about filling the gaps. Currently it is looking like:
28/3/13- Norwich (venue TBC)
29/3/13- The Old Red Lion, Kennington, London.
31/3/13- Leeds (venue TBC)
5/4/13- Cardiff, The Moon Club
Recorded over some days at Astbury Castle, Westminster University and drummer Michael Saminaden’s place, this DIY venture is a powerful and melodic record comprised of the biggest songs of their set from their last year of shows.
To support the release of this record, It’s Not OK! will be venturing on a 12 day tour of the UK.
3/2/13- Bury St Edmunds (venue tbc) w/ Flicker/ Rats As Big As Dogs/ Victory Points
