LAST GANG IN TOWN present Chicago Celtic Punks FLATFOOT 56 + THE BARRACKS + WARSHY (CRAZY ARM)
FLATFOOT 56 - Playing a positive-natured brand of hardcore-tinged Celtic punk, Flatfoot 56 has been unleashing itself upon America and the rest of the world for over 16 years now. Forming in 2000, the Chicago natives achieved nationwide attention with their first two label-backed records, 2006’s ‘Knuckles Up’ and 2007’s ‘Jungle of the Midwest Sea’. These releases built on a heavy dose of previously established regional notoriety, helping the band gain steam early on.
While each record received its fair share of acclaim, the quintet exploded onto a new level with 2010’s ‘Blackthorn’. Landing the band on a total of 9 Billboard Charts, Flatfoot 56 proved it could consistently reach an expanding audience while treading in a genre not often associated with widespread success.
After the success of ‘Blackthorn’ Flatfoot hit the studio yet again in 2012 to record their Paper and Plastic records backed ‘Toil’ album. This album would further solidify the band as a consistent force to be reckoned with.
Frontman Tobin Bawinkel (vocals/guitar) is now set to lead Flatfoot 56 on in their furious march forward. Armed with his brother Kyle (bass), along with Eric McMahon (bagpipes/guitar), Brandon Good (mandolin/guitar/vocals) and Conrad Allsworth (Drums), Flatfoot 56 have just released their 7th full length studio album ‘Odd Boat.’
Flatfoot 56 are visiting the UK for the first time in 10 years so don’t miss your chance to see them!
THE BARRACKS – Formed in 2009, this four piece punk rock band from the South East coast play songs with a ferocity that, in the tradition of the best 90’s street punk, are tempered by a sense of melody. Influenced by Bouncing Souls, Swingin’ Utters, Youth Brigade and Rancid.
WARSHY (Crazy Arm) – Darren Johns from Crazy Arm’s new acoustic project! An opportunity to explore the folk-roots and Americana influences that have underpinned Crazy Arm’s forte, and to strip them to the bone. A more intimate and less abrasive approach, it is one man, his guitar, banjo, kick drum and voice.
