A busy month is shaping up at the award-winning Ramsgate Music Hall.
The month begins Thursday, July 7 with American indie rocker and studio magician Kelley Stoltz. After spending years on the road playing rhythm guitar for Echo & the Bunnymen, the psych-pop genius is ready to spin his own music again.
Post-punk-minded quartet KIEFF combine their love for sonic assault, chaotic harmonies and the unusual to create songs that are exuberant and fierce. They are traveling from the Netherlands to visit Ramsgate on Thursday July 14.
One half of Mexico’s Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, and now an outstanding solo act in her own right: J. Zunz comes to Ramsgate on Friday, July 15. His music falls somewhere between Cocteau Twins and Mitski.
Canterbury singer-songwriter Will Whisson plays on Saturday July 23. He’s worked his way across Europe creating his songs, and this gig celebrates the launch of his second album Different Sides.
Sick Joy’s noise-pop has echoes of Pixies and Nirvana among many others. Born in Newcastle and now based in Brighton, the trio travel to Ramsgate on Sunday July 24.
Rising stars The Froot bring their psychedelic and progressive rock tunes to Ramsgate on Friday 29th July. A delicious throwback to the 60s and 70s, they are essential for fans of The Doors, Pink Floyd, Hendrix and The Beatles.
And Deep State will end the month on Saturday, July 30, with the best in classic and modern underground dance music in the Progressive House, Dark Tribal, Techno and Breaks genres. An unforgettable evening of quality music, delivered by experienced DJ’s on stage, versed in reading the dance floor.
