Morass of Molasses,Cybernetic Witch Cult,Eyes Fly,Doomicidal

MORASS OF MOLASSES (HeviSike Records) Swamp master generals of the Reading scene; they create the kind of lumbering Heavy blues riffs which induce involuntary head nodding and a deep stirring of the loins. Effortlessly establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Their short life so far has also seen them sharing stages with such luminaries of the scene as Crowbar, Orange Goblin, Ohhms, Vodun, Elephant Tree, Desert Storm, Space Witch, Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, Limb, Gurt and many more. Their gutsy Jagermiester stage performance at Bloodstock Festival 2015 helped propel them into a relentless schedule of touring.  They are supported by Cybernetic Witch Cult, Eyes Fly and the impressive Doomicidal!

Dame of the Hour Exhibition

Since 1909, we have been commemorating the movement for women’s rights, on International Women’s Day (8th March).  The DAME OF THE HOUR exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate IWD while showcasing work from TWENTY TWO different artists each with their own take on the exhibition’s theme. The exhibition takes inspiration from Dame Nellie Melba (1861-1931), a world renowned operatic soprano and the first Australian to be internationally recognised as a classical musician. It is perhaps also fitting that it was in the year 1909 that Dame Nellie Melba returned to to Australia —in the glory of her fame — for a ‘sentimental tour’ and was celebrated and lauded by fellow Australians for her success. We’ll be open every night from 5th March until 22nd March from 5pm to 10pm.. come and say hello and support IWD!
