The Wave Pictures - show confirmed

Good news! We're well pleased to announce that The Wave Pictures will be coming to Nottingham to play a show on Tuesday June 1st. Here are the current details...

Tuesday June 1st
Spanky Van Dykes
17 Goldsmith Street, Nottingham
Doors at 8pm
Entry is £6 in advance / £7 on the door

The Wave Pictures have been around for ages, but it's only over the last two or three years they've been getting the attention they deserve. With recent releases on Moshi Moshi records they've shown that they're among the best songwriters on the planet today (no shit). With songs mixing heartbreak and humour in equal measure they draw upon influences such as Jonathan Richman and The Violent Femmes and throw in the occasional brain-melting guitar solo on top. On top of their own extensive back catalogue they have also helped contribute to that of such notables as The Mountian Goats, Darren Hayman and Stanley Brinks (Herman Dune).

We've been trying to get them to play for ages - this should be awesome! They got a nice review on Pitchfork this week (if you hold their opinion in high esteem). Check it out here - http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/14183-instant-coffee-baby-if-you-leave-it-alone/.
