One of the finest post-punk bands in recent memory and long overdue a Sheffield debut, OMNI head to town for the very first time, backed by an all-star line up of TAAE favourites.

Framed from within the relentless heatwave of Atlanta, Georgia, Omni cuts through the oppressive humidity of the gilded southern capital with a cool and breezy combo of lo-fi nonchalance. In paying homage to post-punk forebears like Pylon, Wire and Devo, Omni exploits a succinct and focused sound. Strung taut with wiry guitar and incisive rhythms, their approach is not without plenty of sneaky, danceable melodies to round off the hard angles.

Cowtown are made up by David Michael Shields (drums), Hilary Knott (keybass/vocals) and Jonathan Nash (guitar/vocals). Having formed in Leeds 13 years ago, but like Gang Of Four, born in a variety of other places, they play econo, dynamic, over-stimulated rock music that embraces a heavily abridged history of rock n’ roll. Serious about fun, the band are a firm favourite of BBC 6 DJ Mark Riley, performing music with an emphasis on positive expression and confronting collective anxieties, creating live shows that focus on what they enjoy and discarding the rest.

Ganglions play mathy pop punk with Cork accents and a serious case of the jerky jangles. Together as a Yorkshire-based music group since early 2016, Eimear O’Donovan (bass, vocals), Brian Scally (drums, vocals) and Chris Saywell (guitar, vocals) have been making modest waves in the DIY scenes of their adopted cities of Sheffield and Leeds, releasing their most recent EP Thirsty on The Audacious Art Experiment last year.
