Don’t Die Just Yet’s NonProm!

by Ben Davis on 22 June, 2008 | 0 comments

Thursday 26th June sees Wrexham’s indie kids Don’t Die Just Yet! hosting their second annual NonProm at Central Station.

Last years NonProm was a huge success and this year is set to be even better with Bethan Elfyn and her team from BBC Introducing… in Wales coming up from Cardiff to record the show for future broadcast on Radio 1.

The night will see four acts take to the stage, the first being Denbigh post-rockers Capguns who are gaining plaudits across the UK with their dark instrumental rock. Their haunting sound, akin to Mogwai and Godspeed!, has brought them extensive shows and coverage across the British Isles and they look set to become giants in their field in years to come. They’ve already recorded a session for Radio 1 and are a stunning live spectacle so ensure you get yourself to the venue early!

The second local band is Wrexham’s electro-math-rockers Gallops! It’s been a while since a local band has caused such a stir on the local scene with their first ever recording, Crutches, receiving play on Radio 1. Their sound is heavily influenced by artists such as The Mars Volta, Foals and Battles and they already have a strong fanbase in Wrexham; wider success is a certainty when the rest of the country hears these guys.

Main support comes from You Animals, formerly known as Komakino. They play fast indie-rock and their style is sure to claim them hoards of fans across the globe as they seek to pick up where Komakino left off. Dynamic lead singer Ryan is a sight to see as he races through sets closely followed by his fellow members who, as a unit, make up one of the most exciting new acts around.

This years headliners are a band currently making a name for themselves across Europe with their debut album ‘What Of Our Future’ released on ultra cool French label Kitsuné. They are Cazals and they’re one of the most respected up-and-coming bands in Britain. Recent singles such as ‘Somebody, Somewhere’ and their storming cover of Spandau Ballet’s ‘To Cut a Long Story Short’ have gained them play on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show as well as MTV2. They’ll be rounding off the live entertainment perfectly before the after-party kicks off with the Civil Commotion DJ’s spinning their favourite tracks until the early hours plus plenty of cheap drinks offers to make the night complete.

Tickets for the event are priced at £6 in advance (subject to booking fee) or you can pay £8 on the door. Doors open at 7:30pm and anyone over 14 is welcome, however the after-party is strictly 18+.
