On an evening where a feast of musical genres hit Newport on the same night, there was a smell of that old “New Seattle” aroma in the air. Our horrible selves were ramping up the glam punk at Le Pub, the mighty reformed Dub War were ripping up The Basement and the 2 Rude all-stars were skanking in the Riverside. All shows amazingly attended, a definite triumph for the city of Newport.
After proudly selling out our Le Pub show in a matter of hours and with tickets being exchanged, sold and bought until the final minutes, we were on for a mental night!
Thank you to Sam, Matt and all the staff at Le Pub for hosting and managing the event in the mêlée of drunkenness and debauchery. As photos come in, there were some proud owners of those personalised goodie bags that were cheap enough to make your local pound shop blush!
Excellent sets were turned in from Trigger McPoopshute (are they getting tighter? Ahem) and the resplendent noise in the form of Science Bastard. Massive wanks from The Livers’ ladies to both bands.
