Liars to co-headline Gathering Festival

Gathering festival, seemingly the next Cowley Road Crawl event which have been happening in September/October over the years, has announced a second headline act for this year: Liars. A particularly underrated band, their live set is a tense affair of pent up and foreboding menace which erupts furiously and magnificently. Another massive bonus is that they’ll be playing in the more intimate setting of the Bullingdon; I’ve seen various ‘noisy’ bands there over the years- Danananaykroyd, Crocodiles– and it works very well. Very well indeed. Meanwhile, previously announced co headliners Dry the River will play the o2 academy.

Suave Walkmen and Killers-ophiles Spector will also feature, with other venues such as The Port Mahon, East Oxford Community centre and Cowley Road Methodist Church sticking their oar in.

More bands TBA, head to their website or facebook page for the full lowdown and updates.
