Incredibly now in its eleventh year the all singing all dancing free arts extravaganza that is Sunday Xpress has landed at new venue Centrala. It really is a match made in counter culture heaven. Centrala has a reputation for hosting imaginative leftfield events and has established itself as a vital cultural hub, it’s in a really cool part of Digbeth too. Sunday Xpress will be bringing a finely honed mixture of open mic sessions and bands, but what we like best about SX is their attention to detail. Projectors will be beaming everything from Jim Bowen to Jan Svankmajer onto big screens and carefully curated playlists will fill any performance voids between acts. Headlining are The Day Ends, who make the biggest, tightest, metal, indie, jazz, rock noise you will ever hear. Taking hardened eclecticism to the outer reaches of musical reality the Smethwick based musicians are a blast live. Also appearing are Wolverhampton based noisy blues rabble The Suicide Chuggers and ADHD. Compere for the event is Big Brendan Higgins. That’s a lot of musical bang for no buck. You lucky people.
