Faux Fancy: Season’s Greetings with… Moon Balloon / In The Trunk / Non Threatening Boys
December 15 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
The self-described “Clown Rock” outfit hailing from South East London have long been favourites on the live circuit, with their quirky guitar bops leaving listeners unable to refrain from a hip shake or two. Recent release ‘Don’t Turn Around’ was the first release on new imprint SelOut Records, and featured covers of the groups tunes from other artists such as JC Palmer, Symbol, Soup, and Luce Rushton. I don’t know about you, but if you’ve got other people eager to take on your material, something must be dead right.
IN THE TRUNK
A flurry of scuzzy guitars and anthemic melodies are the order of the day here. We first caught them at this very venue as part of The Ivy’s annual Beer Fest back in May and we’re thrilled to have them back. It’s familiar but wonky, and entirely intoxicating. The self-titled 2022 EP is a perfect 20 minute snapshot of what this lot can do, from utterly atomizing guitar breaks to Cocteau-esque vocal lines.
NON THREATENING BOYS
A Dreamo outfit hailing from the nooks and crannies of South East London. Having played their cards quite close to their chest thus far, the gang have become somewhat of a blink-and-you’ll-miss-them live act, quietly honing a sound that draws from Midwestern Emo and elements of sludgier-influence. Who knows, perhaps they’ll bring a Christmas present or two with them to celebrate.
