Graveyard Johnny’s gig preview
The Bristol Nomad has given us a sneak preview into this week's gig - Graveyard Johnny at the Louisiana, Bristol on Saturday 13th July.
Do you like Rock n Roll? Do you like Country? Do you like Punk? Well how about we chuck them all in the melting pot that is Psychobilly and let the Graveyard Johnny’s show you how it’s done.
The boys are back in town this weekend. For what is looking like a capacity gig at The Louisiana. Very limited tickets remain. At only £11 entry, why miss out? Get your tickets here.
Do not expect to stand there quietly supping your pint. If you do you’ll be in for a rude awakening. And most likely be called out by the band to “wake the F up”. A Graveyard Johnny’s show is very much a crowd participation event, so get ready to raise some hell.
When the Johnny’s come to town (Joe Grogan, bass and vocals, Tom lord, drums and Callum Houston, guitar) they bring the noise. Quite how the bass survives a full show is beyond me; and you can imagine many of the ticket sales going toward kit replacement.
Yes these boys are unapologetically loud, yes the pace is frantically fast and yes you will leave feeling like you’ve been to a Welsh fisherman’s house party that just happened to be a huge UK punk scene fan.
Expect a raft of songs from the two studio albums (2011’s Songs from better days & 2015’s Dead Transmission), but maybe a few early gems from Street blocks & city lights as well.
Formed in 2008, the South Wales boys are now veterans of the Psyco/Rockabilly scene and have toured consistently around the UK, Europe and the USA. And are one of the first names booked for any Rockabilly festivals.
Drink your pints, lose your voices and dance your hearts out.
Oh Bristol…. You are in for one hell of a show, you have been warned.
