Live music from local rockers Mr. George’s Famous Last Words and the psychedelically tinged ramblings of Primary Colours with new EP ‘Jam’.

Agents of Evolution live at Cogs
The gothic steam punk energy of Cogs was invented for Agents of Evolution’s nightmare noise who take the synth soundtracks of classic horror as their starting premise. Think Argento and Carpenter blended into a musical pulp through the sharp prism of Swans and Foetus. Nostalgic and modern but assuredly unique, they make a beautiful live racket.
