@ Hope & Ruin - Brighton

Acid Box Promotions bring you the feisty female four-piece that is Madonnatron.

Thursday 15th March
The Hope & Ruin
Tickets £5adv / £7otd online / Resident Brighton

Much in the manner, a devotional feline will proudly massacre vermin, leaving it’s sacrificial remains to fetter your hallway carpet, we bring you Madonnatron. From humble yet auspicious beginnings, arising unabashed from the mists of the Thames, they have thwarted reasonable doubt with limited knowledge of their instruments and two fingers at convention.

Escapades so far include: touring with The Moonlandingz, PINS and The Black Lips, featuring on the line up at UK festivals, including a packed out slot on the Rising Stage at Green Man; two live sessions for Marc Riley on BBC6Music and one for John Kennedy on Radio X; touring with Trashmouth Records and label mates Meatraffle across the UK at the end of 2016, and releasing their eponymously-titled first record in July 2017.

Their atmospheric, raw, and confrontational live shows deliver a sound reminiscent of early Joy Division, The Gun Club and The Stooges- these sirens will mercilessly lure you onto the rocks.

Melt Dunes
Channeling the likes of krautrock legends CAN and NEU! yet with a live performance more akin to the Detroit garage punks the Stooges and the MC5, Portsmouth’s Melt Dunes are pretty much everything we like to see and hear in a live band.

Something Leather
Killer 70s electric organ with trippy fuzzed out riffs and swooning vocals.
