Wombatwombat gears up for its summer break tonight with a celebratory, energy-rammed bill of exhilarating noise and engaging performances, from some of the UK's hottest emerging independent talent.

Pulled Apart By Horses - the band on the lips and must-see lists of everyone in the know - gallop in to Norwich Arts Centre with their devastating intense manic art-punk meets post-hardcore melodic racket. With a mission to 'give the audience something that they can't get from a record', the Leeds four-piece always opt for a 'straightforward' live show.

Fellow Big Scary Monsters signings and leading lights in the alt-Yorkshire scene Wintermute return to Wombatwombat. Promoting their debut album, Robot Works, the quartet's as-tight-as-you-like passionate and invigorating strangely catchy version of techy math-pop has a reputation for joyously taking over the mind, body and soul.

Uh Ohs play an eagerly anticipated hometown show to pre-empt the June 29 release of their Little Power Records' download single I Can't Wait/I Am Underdog. Fresh from being main support for Cage The Elephant at UEA, the feisty loud/quiet/loud alt-power-pop/rock trio is busy strengthening its standing as one of East Anglia's best new bands.

And in the bar, Howlback Hum presents WiQwar, Master Solo, Jess Morgan Ben Grizzly and The Lose Leaf Drifters, Lucky Jam Boy, Alice And The Wolfman.

t Catch Wombatwombat at Norwich Arts Centre tonight at 8pm.
