This Thursday – Christmas Spruce carnage at Central Station!

If you are one of the 400 plus people that crammed into the wrexhammusic.co.uk Christmas Spruce at Central Station last year you know it was the party of the year!

Just in case you missed the party last time round we’ve written a ‘who’s who’ guide to this year’s line-up on Thursday December 20th.

We’ve got two stages again this year with the music alternating between each stage so you won’t miss a thing! After all 8 acts finish the club will descend into darkness, smoke and lazers for our sister indie-electro club night ‘weaponsofmassmusic‘.

First on stage this year will be the rising talent that is Polly Mackey (myspace.com/pollymackey). She’ll be kicking the party off in style with her soulful acoustic tunes. Make sure you get there early as you’ll be kicking yourself if you miss her set.

Next up will be one of our favourite bands in the form of The Djangos. They’ve recently returned to gigging after injuries temporarily stopped play. The quirkiest band on this year’s bill will have you dancing with angular pop-gems like ‘Call the Cavalry’.

The Maydays will be making a welcome return to the wrexhammusic stage next. Their Arctic Monkeys/Libertines-esque indie has won them many fans over recent months. One of the tightest bands around, they put many of their peers to shame.

The next band to spruce things up will be the mighty Trader. With recent addition Jac (The Rigbys) on guitar, Trader have found a new lease of life. Singer David sounds like Brian Molko having a musical tug-of-war with Morrissey and The View. We can’t wait!

Little Caesar may be a new name, but you will recognise them as the bulk of The Eaves with new tunes and a new hunger! This will be one of their first gigs – watch them reclaim their place amongst Wrexham’s finest. Definitely a performance not to be missed.

The sixth band of the night will (rather fittingly) be the mighty Mother of Six.
The rockiest, loudest, and down right doomiest act on the bill will be providing a break from the indie proceedings with their QOTSA meets Bleach era Nirvana styling.

Second to last on December 20th will be familiar faces and local heroes Arnie.
With countless gigs under their belts they play memorable indie rock tunes with great pop melodies. The band’s sound is truly impressive with the inclusion of brass and piano. Their eclectic set is certain to impress all you festive merry-makers!

Headliners for this year’s Christmas party are Leaving Isaac’s Shop. They are natural successors to Crosbi’s “most likely to make it” tag. LIS will have you dancing like an idiot! With a single due out on their own ‘Tape Records’ label in February, and a tour planned for next year this will be a celebration to remember!

After the bands finish you won’t be having an early night as ‘weaponsofmassmusic’ will be providing the indie and electro tunes to see you through to the wee small hours. There will be smoke and lazers so even a one legged hippo can have an ace time dancing themselves silly to The Wombats, CSS, The Smiths, Justice, Arctic Monkeys, The Pigeon Detectives etc…

This will be the party of the year, so get to Central Station early on Thursday December 20th! If it is half as good as last year’s party then it is going to be messy!
