Wombatwombat and Amsterdam-based promoters subbacultcha! present an Anglo/Dutch mini-all-dayer at B2, Sprowston Road, Norwich, this Saturday (from 4pm).

The event showcases a spectrum of the exciting underground sounds of Norwich and The Netherlands as well as being the eagerly-awaited debut gig for UH-OHs, a local trio of familiar faces. Norwich's Low-era Bowie-inspired atmospheric rock trio .Sub take the headline slot previewing tracks from the Oxytocin EP, which is out in early 2008. The Netherlands' guitar/bass/drum/trumpet combo We vs. Death make a welcome return to Norwich with their trail-blazing sound that combines the energy and passion of bands such as Fugazi and Karate with the beauty of post-rock.

Fellow Dutchmen Adept include Liars, New Order and Thom Yorke among their influences with the band choosing “heavy pumping beats with restrained, sensual vocals and loud noise eruptions” as a guide to what to expect. Their 2007-released debut was extremely well received by the Dutch press, as were their performances supporting Enter Shikari and 65 Days of Static.

The line-up is completed by the Dutch collective Bonne Aparte, guitar-pop/rock band Tell Me How who are currently working on their debut album, Jim Musgrave (The Elephant Dress and my visor) and UH-OHs who formed in August this year through a mutual love of Pixies-esque loud/quiet/loud school of punk rock. The band take the stage at 4.10pm. Tickets £5 on the door.
