BURLY NAGASAKI!!!!!!!!!!!!
Playing LIVE
DJ Cat Lady on the decks
As always it will be FREE of charge to you lovely people.

HERE’S THE DEETS:
On the third Thursday of August 2009, a very special thing occurred. A band, created specially for Jumpers For Goalposts, performed live. Using a selection of household tools, a tiny keyboard, a mandolin and a megaphone, a legend was born, as two people led a singalong about a made-up superhero.

The band’s name? You’ve guessed it… Burly Nagasaki.

Since then Burly Nagasaki – a duo of Joey on guitar and vocals and Theresa on drums and vocals – has sprouted a pair of rhinestone-encrusted wings and taken flight. They’ve written and recorded an album about Elvis Presley, released on their own record label, S’only Music. They’ve also performed this selection of charming, beautifully-crafted songs everywhere from Dot To Dot to the Hockley Hustle.

This is kind of what they look like:
Frankenstein & Snake Lady

This is your opportunity to see Burly Nagasaki return to their spiritual home; to find out anything you ever wanted to know about Elvis; and to get your craft on to a magical musical melange of rock n roll, indiepop, surf, art rock, electro…and maybe even to have a singalong about a made-up superhero.

There will also be a FREE creative competition with MEGA prizes, and DJ Cat Lady playing some blinding records.

It all kicks off at about 8.30pm, but feel free to get down early, bag a seat, and get some of the Alley Café’s lovely vegan tucker.
