Maplesyrup presents a Kick ass night of music.
Here come the GRRRRLS!! We are having a post-pride bash dedicated to hardcore chicks that ROCK hard with Punk-Rock & Ska.
Our headliner is making grungy radio waves. The Kut are an all grrl band based in London they are high in demand it was hard to get these ladies booked but I persisted to bring you all quality Punk Rock which is notably Inspired by bands like Deftones, L7, Hole, Incubus, Placebo, Nirvana, My Chemical Romance, Faith No More and others, The Kut were voted into in the winning spots for the MTV UK Brand New Unsigned Poll at the end of November. Their single ‘NO TRACE’ was produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / My Vitriol / Manic Street Preachers / Page & Plant / Bjork and Def Leppard) Noteworthy shows include live sets at London 2012 Olympics and the Paralympics after being selected by the Teenage Rampage Foundation as well as a sold out UK tour - ‘The Love Hate Vampire Shotgun System Circus Tour’.

Smack in the middle we have the mighty Muff Said! They are local and festival favourites and will soon be yours! Muff Said get the audience dancin and skankin with their unique brand of ska. They always attract a friendly bouncy crowd with their infectious stage presence and cheeky jig.
Muff Said are a seven piece, kick-ass female fronted Ska-Punk-Funk band with a feisty Riot Grrrl twist. They have just released their first full album called “Anytime Anyplace” after seeing them live on stage Anytime Any place sounds about right!!!

Kicking us off we have a female led Bristol Punk Band The Dive. The Dive take punk’s usual gesture of power, like off-kilter meaty drum beats and whirlwind bass lines, and coil them tightly, making the entire sound quirky, art-damaged, loose, and resonant with a constant Stooges rock lust core.

When the bands aren’t rocking we have the flamboyant and edgy Jimmy the fingers his set includes an eclectic mash up of tunes you love and tunes you soon will love. JTF produces a straight up wicked mix with a side-show of rapping, smoke machines and other quirky performances.
