They were championed by the late Kurt Cobain, supported Nirvana in the States, and were personally chosen by Simpsons creator Matt Groening to play 2010’s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival and by comedian Stewart Lee to play 2016’s ATP.

Green Mind presents: Powderhead +The Wicked Jackals +False Hearts
Apr 14 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

POWDERHEAD

‘It’s loud. It’s dirty. It smashes you over the head’ – heavy classic rock at its best!

Powderhead are a new face on a classic scene, belting out raw, old-school rock that will get your head banging, your body moving and leave you screaming for more!

This Cambridge band began in February 2015 fuelled by guitarists Si Mortlock and Jose Solar and vocalist Helen Johnson’s mutual interest in 80s and 90s rock and metal. But it wasn’t until December 2015, when drummer Ollie Rose and bassist James Miller joined, that things really kicked off. With Ollie’s energetic, thrash inspired beats and Miller’s no nonsense, stoner rock minded bass lines, the band’s unique style of heavy classic rock emerged.

Following the release of their self titled debut EP in May 2016, the band continue to write new material and have a string of gigs lined up this summer to showcase their head banging rock to audiences in the UK.

Green Mind presents KELE OKEREKE (Bloc Party) + special guests

on sale Friday 29th January 9am.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

As an artist, Kele Okereke has never stood still, relentlessly seeking new ways in which to present his luminous songs. Fresh from successfully reinventing his band Bloc Party last year, Kele has returned with his third solo album, Fatherland. The adrenalised electronics of his previous two solo records, The Boxer and Trick, are replaced here by a much more organic even classic sonic palette: delicate folk (Streets Been Talking), sumptuous soul (Do U Right), and insidious, dub reggae-meets-Weimar cabaret (You Keep On Whispering). It’s all as far from Bloc Party’s hectic wall of sound as can be imagined.

Green Mind presents an Evening With NADA SURF  ***SOLD OUT***

https://www.facebook.com/NadaSurf/

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

Nada Surf are excited to announce the first dates of their tour celebrating the 15th anniversary of their seminal album Let Go. The record was initially released by EMI/Labels in Europe and Heavenly Records in the UK in September 2002, and was then released by Barsuk in the US in February 2003. Billed as ‘An Evening with Nada Surf’, the band will perform Let Go in its entirety, and after a short break they’ll return to play a second set. There will be no support on these shows.

“12 literate songs of consumptive love lives in imbalance, full of big melodies and enough wonder at the world to turn frowns upside down every time.” – MOJO

“Virtually every song on Let Go hits its mark in one way or another, dispensing consistently remarkable moments that range from the sweet minor-key swoon of “Blizzard Of ’77” and “Neither Heaven Nor Space” to the sleek, bouncy new wave of “Hi-Speed Soul.” Examining relationships, fruit-fly swarms, and Cheap Trick lyrics with equally keen understanding, all while dispensing a disarming array of subtly endearing hooks, Nada Surf completes the evolution into a smart pop marvel before most listeners knew it had begun.” – AV Club

Green Mind presents VUNDABAR

https://www.facebook.com/Vundabar/

“Vundabar’s sophomore album, GAWK, was a charming, chaotic pile-up of surf-, math-, and art-rock. Though their songs are brimming with hooks, the Boston group’s main draw is an unpredictable, fast-twitch energy that comes across best in dingy, airless DIY spaces. “Acetone,” the leadoff track from their upcoming LP, Smell Smoke, bursts with streamlined, streaking guitar leads and martial drum rolls, their “you go to see them live” rep finally captured in a crisp, three-minute pop song. Frontman Brandon Hagen’s lyrics are harrowing: “I don’t want you to see the way I’ve been/Doled out a bleached persona,” and the song’s imagery was inspired by his experiences juggling his work as a caretaker for a loved one with the band’s relentless touring. Vulnerable as it is, “Acetone” still rips—and offers new proof that Vundabar are just as compelling offstage as they are on.” Pitchfork

Green Mind presents BULLY

Tickets on sale Friday 15th December, 10am

“The band’s second album, Losing, is grimier and less sugar-slick than their 2015 debut, Feels Like, where songs like “Trying” and “Milkman” offered hooks so punchy they bordered on pop-punk. Here, by contrast, Bognanno seems frozen in the moment where she’s poised to jump but hasn’t left the ground yet, tensed and ready to strike as she sings out the snags in her interpersonal malaise. More second-person pronouns pepper her lyrics than ever, whether she’s figuring out how to traverse a toxic relationship or nursing one hell of a crush. Her sandpaper scream is still the most immediately arresting element of Bully’s music; when, on “Running,” she seethes, “You say I’m running/But I don’t care/I’ll admit it/I get anxious too/Just like you,” it lands less like a confession and more like an uppercut.” Pitchfork
