The Kids Are Solid Gold have a brand new show on Saturday, Bear Driver. Sound good to me. Their next show on Saturday is their last one for a month before returning with a couple of unmissable shows. But first, the utterly brilliant, Bear Driver.

 

Here’s the word from The Kids Are Solid Gold

THIS SATURDAY - BEAR DRIVER

Brilliant London/Leeds six-piece, Bear Driver, arrive in town this Saturday. It's a great show and we think they're an incredibly exciting new band with a great fresh sound. We are also delighted to welcome wonderful young Tyneside band, Brilliant Mind, who will be main support.

 

Here's what the critics say about Bear Driver:
"The Leeds band's latest is the best (skewed) pop single of the year so far, no contest." - Dan Cairns, The Sunday Times
"For an outfit only just finding their feet, Bear Driver's debut single Wolves is nothing short of astonishing" - Paul Lester, The Guardian
“Somersaulting into the catchiest of chords...layering harmonies with riot grrl shouts. This is dizzying uplifting power-pop with more than a strum of sophistication.” - Laura Silverman, The Times
“Bear Driver’s debut single comes fused with mandolins, accordions and three-part harmonies to create some perfectly-formed psych-pop.” - The Fly
“Bear Driver, a band I’m lovin’ at the moment!”Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1
"Check out 'Mind Attack' by Bear Driver. Then give them a record deal...Good stuff!" - Chris Martin, NME Radio
"I've never heard anyone do that before!" - Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music
'Listener's Choice' - Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 2

THE VACCINES

After what has been an incredible response (and our heartfelt thanks to all those who have already got their tickets) the Vaccines show has just been moved to the main room. This means that an additional 40 tickets have been made available across all outlets. This has been our fastest ever selling show (even quicker than the Glasvegas and Mumford & Sons shows way back when) and we're sure that these extra tickets will be snapped up fairly quickly. Are this band worthy of the hype? We'll soon find out!
If you're still undecided then the band have today just made two new tracks available. Have a listen and see what you think: http://soundcloud.com/the-vaccines/blow-it-up
