GIG: BEVERLY KILLS/ PHARMACIST
Beverly Kills are Gothenburg’s new rising stars, a band that take a little inspiration from that city’s classic post-punk sound, but sharpen and clean it up to make it their own version of bright, brutal shoegaze pop, exemplified by the sleek power of latest single Revellers. Here, they’re joined by fellow GBG group Pharmacist, whose latest single You Bore Me Half To Death is a sawnoff shotgun of an indie song.

GIG: MARCUS ADMUND FUNCK
“In July 2006, 16 years old, I vomited behind a box on Östra Gotland. Straight after, I hopped onstage with my Yamaha guitar – covered in stickers I bought from punk and country bands from Brooklyn and Los Angeles on MySpace – and murdered the concept of a live performance. It was my first show”. Thirteen years later, Marcus Admund Funck is finally releasing his first solo music (much if the intervening time has been spent in his band Honeymilk). Debut single Lazarus is a slow-burning, spilt-drink ballad, and you can see him play it live at Bongo Bar on Saturday.
