Eastbound is one of these mini new music occasions that felt like it was birthed pre pandemic, got swept away and is now poking its way into our consciousness again. Scalping (Feb 22, Workman’s) are a Bristolian audio-visual group mining punk, post rock and industrial with a propulsive techno undercurrent. Coach Party (Feb 23, Grand Social) hail from the Isle of Wright are quintessential indie venting their millennial concerns. Catch the local undercard – Of all living things – with their shoegaze sound. It’s a local quadruple bill of Really Good Time (Dublin post-punk), Ruti (UK neo-soul and winner of The Voice), Jack Cullen (London singer-songwriter), YINYANG (Belfast hip-hop) (Feb 26, Grand Social)
Workman’s/Grand Social, Wednesday February 22 to Sunday February 26.
