Braker!Braker! This is You!Me!Dancing! come in please TRUCK...What's your twenty?
....YEEEHHHAAA! We've got ourselves a CONVOY!
Oxford's own small-but-perfectly-formed summer festival TRUCK have joined forces with You!Me!Dancing! Oxford's own small-but-perfectly-formed promoters to present an amazing series of gigs over the May bank holiday weekend, giving you all the taste for Truck, so when July comes round you'll all be begging for another hit.
We will be taking over the venues, and as Sarah Beaney would say 'bringing the outdoors indoors' so expect hay bales, bunting and plenty more surprises, and TRUCKING treats for anyone that comes wearing wellys.
Curious? Want to hear more? The weekend shapes up a little bit likes this:
THE XCERTS + TIRED IRIE + UTE
Saturday 2 May 2009, The Jericho Tavern – 18+ £6 adv
"Nothing short of ashtonishing" Kerrang! And for once Kerrang, we agree. Biffy for those of you that werent lucky enough to be party of the Zodiac generation.
THE TRUCK STOP BBQ
Sunday 3 May 2009 from 1pm, The Jericho Tavern Garden
feat. Burgers + Beers + Sunshine & Acoustic Loveliness till 7pm. Artists TBC.
THE JOY FORMIDABLE + DARTZ!+ CALORIES
Sunday 3 May 2009, The Jericho Tavern – 18+ £6 adv
Welsh born, London bred The Joy Formidable bring their dreamy-indie, perfect-pop for their first Oxford headline show. Don’t get us started on our love for Dartz, we’d be here for pages.. Drowned in sound say its “the best underground party you were never invited to”, Music week call it “Super-smart, magnificently melodic and overtly original pop.”We think it’s simply the best clash of Minus The Bear, Bloc-Party, Q and Not U and Fugazi you’ll probably ever hear. Joined by Calories, last seen supporting Dananananakroyd. Featuring former members of the late-great Distophia, it’s Les Savy Fav, it’s The Shins, its R.E.M, its hugely clever pop and you need to get here early to catch it.
ROLO TOMASSI + GRAMMATICS + PULLED APART BY HORSES
Monday 4 May 2009, O2 Academy Oxford, All Ages £7 adv
Rock Sound cover stars, Rolo Tomassi have been storming all over the UK recently with F*cked Up, The Bronx and Gallows and are set to round it all up with us, at the O2 Academy Oxford. Support comes from hotly tipped ones-to-watch, and Y!M!D! favourites, Pulled Apart By Horses and Grammatics.
So if you haven't broken your leg on a shopping trolley whilst jumping off the Magadalen bridge – we'll see you at the front!
Summer loving, Y!M!D! & Truck
