Welcome to the gig guide for the 28th of June to the 2nd of July! Pictured above are postmodern punk powerhouse Faux Faux Amis, who will be playing with Okinawa Girls this Friday at Smith’s Alternative – FFA’s upcoming LP can’t drop quick enough! Also this week Betty Alto are playing with Dalmacia and Limited Express – you can find my copious amounts of praise for Betty Alto here. The ever-incredible Tundrel will be opening for Orsome Welles at the Basement this Saturday. Another great looking gig is Lower Body’s The Lower Body Demonstration cassette launch at The Front Gallery and Cafe, with PTSD, Video Breezy and Loveplus. Also, one of DJ Loz’s faves Click Cult will be playing at what appears to be a handing-over of a zine machine into the safe hands of Smith’s Alternative.
