Castlemania at Albert Hall, City Centre 1 March 2018 Tickets from £27.50 — Book now

This one-off, five-band evening showcases the music of Californian label Castle Face Records. Founded in 2006 by Thee Oh Sees’ John Dwyer among others, the imprint has gone on to gather the cream of the current rock ‘n’ roll revival crop – with King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, The Fresh & Onlys, Ty Segall and White Fence calling it home.

For this show, Dwyer’s own Oh Sees head up an energetic bill that also features the Once and Future Band, plus Kelley Stoltz – who has over 20 releases to his name since 1999. They will be joined by feedback fans Flat Worms and ‘fuzzed-up goth pop’, courtesy of Male Gaze.

Just don’t forget your ear plugs.
