Norwich music promotion collective Wombatwombat celebrates its eighth birthday (and Christmas) with another packed night of up-and-coming bands at Norwich Arts Centre this Friday (8pm).

Headlining are fast-rising city combo the Kabeedies, who have had a great year since winning Next Big Thing IV.

They're joined by art-disco outfit Popular Workshop, plus post-punksters Kids Love Lies. Ducky Vodka complete the main line-up, plus there'll be a packed Howlback Hum session in the bar, featuring the likes of Alto 45, Charlotte Morris, Rory McVicar, the Middle Ones, Aldrin in the Eagle, Ben Grizzly, eLsub and Milkbar DJ.

Pikey Paddy and Tim Clare comperes the irresistible festive feast.
