Lights Down Productions present – HEAR ME HOWL, a one woman, rowdy as hell piece of gig-theatre like no other.
Jess is turning 30 and she’s just discovered punk. Some might say punk is dead, others would say she should really stick to the day job, but the resounding concern is: shouldn’t she be concentrating on settling down by now?
The play explores the characters journey via her discovery of punk music (& punk philosophy) and her story is told from behind and with the help of a drum kit and defiant, with drumsticks in hands, Jess lurches into an unknown future, one where she throws convention to the wind, and questions how much autonomy those with a womb really do have, here in the western world.
It promises to be a very punk, DIY performance, half gig/half spoken word, full rage! Through learning about punk Jess finds a way to express her anger at what society expects from her and she rages against the path her life is on.
We are at Landor Space, Clapham, South London 7th, 8th and 9th March at 7:30pm and 9th March at 2:30pm.
Tickets £10 full price, £8 concessions

Multi-band night at what one punter calls a “cool dingy cavern of a club”. That’s about right. Buried underground, the notorious St Moritz Club is the Mr Hyde equivalent of the Swiss ski resort restaurant that lies above it. The St Moritz was a regular after-show hangout for The Clash and The Pistols and others in the punk years. Motorhead used to come here too. It’s the sort of place you’d have found Dracula’s teenage victims dancing in a 1960s Hammer film. Cellar life, cool, down-at-heel, chic.
WKNJ are playing on that tiny stage right in your face. It’s going to get hot. There will be three other bands playing the same night – for latest times and bill check the promoter’s web site www.wheel-tappers.com.
Afterwards there are DJs until 3am if you want to make a night of it.
£6 on the door. Note the admission policy is ruthless in terms of age/ID. If you look anything under 30 we advise you to bring ID.
Oxford Circus/Tottenham Court Road tubes.

Antarctica: Slick but dynamic and inventive psych-tinged blues rock – snappy arrangements, songs build really well a-la early 70’s Bowie, and the layered harmonies and sense of suspense recall Fleetwood Mac. Great stuff.
The Outbursts: A sound equally informed by garage punk like The Standells and proto-punk, so we’re talking MC5 and The Stooges and yer classic old school 77 gear Stranglers, The Damned etc.
Who Killed Nancy Johnson?: High-energy heavy pop-punk to punk to post-punk band. Influences include The Stooges, The Ruts, Buzzcocks, The Rezillos and Alkaline Trio, Weezer, Sabbath. Infectiously hooky tunes, executed with conviction and known for their incendiary live show.
Dronningen: Think Le Tigre but a bit harder/techier, but very much post-punky post-rave culture electropop de rock with shouty but melodic female vox. Another superb live act who are due to go places.
