We’re really quite chuffed to be curating a stage at the Long Division Festival Fringe on Sunday 3rd June, downstairs at The Hop, Wakefield – from 4:15pm we’re stepping it up a notch with some fab ear-bending electricness. On the bill are:
ANTONIO LULIC (2pm, Hepworth Gallery): Antonio Lulic is a rock-folk singer-songwriter from England’s fashionably impoverished North East. His deep and gravel-throated vocals combine with a powerful yet intimate lyrical style to deliver torrents of rootsy, passionate and uniquely soulful music. (nike men shoes Website)
ULTRAXINE (4:20pm downstairs at The Hop): Powerpoppunkrock for the masses! Ultraxine play feisty girl-fronted pop-punk with a definite snarl – “dirty-mouthed poprockpunk with a huge dollop of sweet stuff” (Website)
PROPANE PENNY (5:20pm downstairs at The Hop): Making seamless transitions between Blink-182-esque punchy, pop-punk riffs, and swimming, melodic passages reminiscent of Dire Straits seem effortless and natural, they produce a diversity and dynamic which seems to incorporate influence from every positive aspect of contemporary rock.

ALICE AT LAST (6:30pm upstairs at The Hop): A four piece with an aggressively powerful sound, occasionally combined with subtle Chili Pepper-esque riffs are known for their catchy choruses and energetic live performances. (nike men shoes Website)
FREEDOM OF THE CITY (6:20pm downstairs at The Hop): A four piece Indie/Pop/Rock band hailing from the birthplace of Indie: Manchester. Catchy guitar riffs, lock-groove drum beats, soaring vocal hooks, pint-in-the-air chorus melodies and a dirty raw guitar sound! (Website)
Free in! Come down, have a beer, listen to some really very splendid bands and come down from Saturday’s full Long Division (and what a line-up, go see their site for more info!).
