Born from the Baltimore hardcore scene, Turnstile have spent a decade injecting infectious punk energy and emotional empathy into every moshpit they’ve encountered, and this gig will be no different. They’ve been recognised by the 2023 Grammy Awards with nominations for Best Rock Performance for “Holiday,” and Best Metal Performance and Best Rock Song for “Blackout.”
Joining the party are 100 gecs, a duo that Pitchfork once described as “the frontrunners of hyperpop, a subgenre that unspools the tightly fused scaffolding of mainstream pop and holds it up to a funhouse mirror.” Frenetic, fun, and as silly as they are sweet, the cacophonous bops of 100 gecs are a species all to themselves.
And to wrap up the night, see why Yard Act came out of the gate from seemingly nowhere, and quickly became one of the most talked about bands on the planet. The four-piece from Leeds went into lockdown with just three hometown shows under their belt, and emerged with a label imprint and a string of increasingly hyped, hilariously dark singles in their arsenal.
This is a party not to miss!
