Another tremendously raucous night brought by Punk Rock in Carlisle.
Gimp Fist with support from Bovver Bailey & Fat Albert
For most of us there are old English bands that took place in our personal history of Punk, Oi! or whatever! Some of us have seen those bands in the past and some of us listen to their music on CD or see their shows now (often not the better ones).
However with this band you have the old power and authenticity in the present. Good music, great songs and lyrics – this is Gimp Fist now. Also on their gigs they transfer those feelings and the power to the crowd.
Tickets are £8.00 (£10.00 on the door) and are available online, direct from OFS and The Old Town Hall.
THIS IS A STANDING SHOW
