5th April | Thekla

Hailing from the energetic, churning bowels of South London, Shame have quickly established themselves as one of the most visceral bands in the independent scene. After tearing through the US on their whirlwind tour, Shame are set to grace Thekla with their meaty riffs and rich, gut-wrenching sound.

Supported by iconic German Pop duo, Gurr, the gig is set to be an explosive night of post-punk talent. Shame have previously trampled the Bristol live scene, most recently in January at Rough Trade off the back of their Songs of Praise album launch. The tenacity with which the group have taken over the alternative scene is testament to their explosive live shows, which ooze expression, and an abrasive tension that captivates all who attend.

Gurr are a vibrant, energetic German pop-duo with an impressive back catalogue of feisty tracks, that have been featured previously by BBC Radio 1 via their own Maida Vale Session. Gurr provides an eclectic mix of grungy riffs, coupled with punchy bass and ethereal vocals which makes for an impressive presence on stage. Gurr’s debut tour featured shows at iconic venues such as SXSW, Eurosonic and Latitude Festival and most recently the eclectic duo have torn through Germany with alt-rock five-piece, WANDA.

The sold-out show is set to be a high-intensity, hedonistic hurricane, with two of the most exciting independent acts in Europe.
