Cavalli, Cospirazione & Gloo live at Bird’s Nest

Los caballos are back home!

Cavalli introducing two of their favourite bands, a night of heavy riffs, Antifa fast beats and beer.

Help us fight fascism with Noise!

* CAVALLI *
“Cavalli are the very essence of horses, in fact Cavalli means horses, in every sense of the word ‘means’. Galloping playfully like a cubed, wild stallion, Cavalli are a hugantic rock made of solid blood. The sign at the gate reads Beware- Cavalli.”

Tom Moody

Alpha Male Tea Party//Valerian Swing (It)//Asian Death Crustacean

Chaos Theory presents a big night for fans of riffs and odd time signatures with new music from these math rock legends.

————————
Alpha Male Tea Party

Explosively upbeat guitar-driven rock from these legends in the math rock scene. We’ve enjoyed them at ArcTanGent, Dunk!festival, StrangeForms Festival and Handmade Festival, and after a healthy dose of national and international tours, they continue to be a band that gets better and better.

Their new album ‘HEALTH’ is out this year!

“Tear-jerkingly beautiful… furious, and all in all, it’s pure, 18-carat fun. Fun is never a bad thing, right? – 8/10″ – Rock Sound

“Predominantly instrumental, utterly exhilarating heavy rock.’” – Total Guitar

“Awe-inspiring metallic proficiency to jagged post-punk gnarl; from brain-crushing heaviosity to wordless, jaw-to-the-floor anthems. – 4/5″ – The Skinny

————————
Valerian Swing

Eclectic and experimental math rock from Italy. With a couple of stupendously good albums, European and American tours and an SXSW appearance under their belts, the trio have an insatiable appetite for playing live, and can’t see any better reason that the release of their upcoming album ‘Nights’.

“Borderline insane, wildly syncopated, and above all- precise.” – Echoes And Dust

————————
Asian Death Crustacean

Formed in the midlands in late 2013 from an unlikely fusion of various projects, this four-piece channels post-rock, extreme metal, jazz and ambient/electronic music into extended instrumental compositions.

Having spent three years refining their sound and playing shows in the midlands and London, culminating in headlining a UK tour in summer 2016, they’re now focused on recording our debut album.

Very impressive live and we can’t wait for them to get themselves on record.

Plus rock/pop/punk band 50ft Woman, fronted by 6ft glamazon Minki – “Think Aerosmith, Debbie Harry, The Ramones, The New York Dolls , CBGB’s and the film ‘Into the Valley of The Ultra Vixens’ all rolled into one and you may get a feel of what [they're] about” – The Gassienda.

Supported in turn by local punk band Pistolhead – “Fuck off am I listening to them, I’m off to do some gardening” – Chris Evans, Radio 2.

The Return of Razorblade Smile

An Alternative Gathering are chuffed to bring Razorblade Smile back to London with some quality support of mostly old gits!

Razorblade Smile – Formed in Glasgow in 2008, they describe themselves as a rock band with a conscience and a sense of humour, whose influences include The Ramones, UK Subs, The Sex Pistols and Reagan Youth.

The Kramers – Punk, garage, rock’n'roll Noise Merchants from London/Herts. They came together with the hunger to write and play their own distinctive brand of savage rock ‘n’ roll.

Geezapunx – A 4 Piece Punk band from Basingstoke, a cheeky blend of authentic and rebellious 70′s Old school Punk! They sound like they still jam in their parents’ basement.

The Outbursts – We’re a garage punk band from London, playing 3 chord songs like our lives depend on it, with the spirit of ’66 and ’77 tattooed across our collective arses.

e-Cog Zero – Blistering original DIY rock with an American style. A mutant abomination mingling glam rock with American punk, with driving dirty, punky hard rock.
