As COVID-19 sweeps the globe and the world builds a fort around itself, constructed of toilet rolls with hand sanitiser in the gun ports, the gig scene is starting to feel the inevitable knock-on effect. My advice (as ever) would be to check for cancellations before you travel, and don’t you dare give me your infection, else I will rise from the grave in the inevitable zombie apocalypse and make you my first meal!
Ghost Car are adored here at Public Pressure Towers and it’s therefore not too much of a surprise that their show at The Finsbury on Friday for Get In Her Ears is our gig of the week. They were due to play multiple showcases at next week’s cancelled SXSW so come out and show them the love: buy merch and get in the pit! Support comes from hotly-tipped The Other Ones, Gaptooth and Minimals. Free entry!
