Woke Up Dead

An unlikely chance meeting between 3 time travellers led to the formation of Woke Up Dead in the latter mid, early first half of the late middle 32nd century. A mutual love of swear words and prescription pain medication is what brought them together, but the desire to play 2 minute punk songs in a far flung dystopian future is what kept them together.
Now, back in the early middle half of the start of the late early 21st century, Woke Up Dead are here to (very politely) take over. And by ‘take over’ we mean play 2 minute punk songs.

Rich Alexander of No Insight (Acoustic)

Hitting the stage to prove once again that drummers shouldn’t sing, Rich Alexander of No Insight opens the show with an acoustic set. Join the self proclaimed sad boy & Rick and Morty enthusiast play (I mean, stumble through) No Insight fan favourites and maybe a cover or two. No Insight are a Pop Punk band from London who draw influences from early 2000s pop punk, with those influences including (but not limited to) Blink 182, Fall Out Boy and New Found Glory. To hear the band in all it’s 3 piece glory, check out their latest release Tear, Beers and Let Downs, which is available on all online platforms. Order some cheap wine and enjoy.

Tickets are £5 on the door or £4 in advance. The show will take place at The Fulford Arms on Friday 8th June, with doors opening at 6.30pm.
