It’s a feast of grunge, grit and sweat with this banquet of local acts at the Hare & Hounds, a thoroughly Brum way to celebrate the Yuletide season. Leading the pack are God Damn: as catchy as an airborne disease, filthy as Bleach-era Nirvana mating in a ditch with Death From Above 1979, the two-man freight train celebrate the release of their critically-acclaimed new album, Everything Ever. The pugilistic pop of Johnny Foreigner can’t be missed either: fluid guitar lines turn on a dime into wailing feedback drones, playground chants into harmonised hooks; five albums in, the longstanding B’ham champions are masters of their own dark arts. Youth Man, on the other hand, have chops beyond their age: a relentless, grinding punk onslaught fronted by the banshee of badass, Kaila White. False Grails and Matters round off a bill that is likely to induce some serious meat sweats come morning.
