Stellar line up for Twisted Banana Big Gig; TONIGHT.

TONIGHT, Twisted Banana Promotions proudly present the annual Flintshire Artsfest Live Music night in Connah's Quay.

Billed as a "night of mind-blowing music", the line up of Houdini Dax, We Are Animal, Golden Fable and The Peace Creatures is hard to argue with.

Cardiff's Houdini Dax jitter their way through Beatles-esque harmonies and doo-wop rhythm with reckless youthful fervour. Great pop songs will always be great pop songs, regardless of when they were written. The three piece distance themselves a little from cliches or nostalgia and it would be wrong to pass them off as youngsters pilfering from the past. They are, though, resounding proof of how little great pop songs have changed in the Close -last 50 years.

Emerging from the ashes of the questionably named Tim and Sam''s Tim and the Sam Band, Ewloe's Golden Fable work layered guitar and lush atmosphere into something a little darker. They swing from earthy electronica to, unexpectedly, a 2012 version of The Vaselines. Their album Star Map was Golden Fable one of the best things of 2012.

Gwynedd's We Are Animal drag melodies through the mud and the mire to your ears. Wonderful, raw and primal psychedelia.

The Peace Creatures are an indie fivesome from Deeside. They have been going since 2011 - citing Super Furry Animals and big hooks as their thing. It sounds a great combination.

The Big Gig is on March 8 at Connah''s Quay Civic Hall. Tickets are PS7. for more information visit
