Sub Pop signings Male Bonding bring their fast and furious hardcore-infused garage punk to Norwich for the first time when they headline Wombatwombat at Norwich Arts Centre this Friday (8pm).
The gig follows hot on the heels of their debut album release, Nothing Hurts, which came out on May 10. The Huw Stephens favourites have already toured the US and UK with Brooklyn's Vivian Girls, wowing festival goers and inducing audience participation wherever they play.
Male Bonding's main support is fellow Londoners Pen with their much-talked about DIY approach to music making which amounts to a 21st century-take on riot grrrl and lo-fi punk.
Hunt In Packs, one of Norwich's most promising new bands - made up of ex-members of Uh-Ohs and Wonderful Allstars, among other acts - kick off the evening in the main auditorium. It's the second gig for the male trio who say they are 'on a quest to create a genre-mashing energy-filled melodic and heavy aural assault.'
Howlback Hum in the caf�/bar presents the Sean and Chad show, starring Ruth Gordon, Kid Atom, David G Cox and Grenouilles.
