Shrewsbury punk band to perform live set at record store this weekend

Shrewsbury’s finest punk band will be debuting tracks from their third album at a special live acoustic set at a local record store this weekend.

‘Someone Else’ will be appearing at Tubeway Records in Shrewsbury Shopping’s Pride Hill Centre this Saturday 30th July, to launch their latest album, Power Chord Poetry.

The live performance by band members Dan Thornhill and Rob Simmons at 4pm will come just a day after the group debut the album at the town’s Hole in the Wall.

“We first got to know the band about six months ago when they came into the shop as customers,” said Caroline Horne, who together with husband Aden set up Tubeway Records in November last year. “We got talking and we offered to sell their CDs for them. They’re big in the area and have quite a following, so we’ve started selling their t-shirts and merchandise too.”

The band’s new album is released on Friday 29th July, and just hours later they will be performing for fans at Tubeway Records, which moved into its new home at the Pride Hill Centre earlier this year.

“We’re really excited to be hosting this acoustic set,” said Caroline. “This is the first time we’ve had a live performance in the store. It’s totally free and open to both fans and anyone else that just wants to come along and hear some live music.

“The previous shop wasn’t big enough for us to do anything like this, but following the move we now have space to set up a small performance area, and we’re already looking at doing something similar in the future.”

Shrewsbury Shopping Centre Manager Kevin Lockwood said he was expecting the free event to be popular with shoppers and music fans alike.

“This is a really great opportunity to see a terrific local band playing live in an intimate venue,” said Kevin. “Caroline and Aden have forged great links with local musicians and we’re all very excited about bringing live music to the centre.”

Someone Else will be appearing at Tubeway Records in Shrewsbury Shopping’s Pride Hill Centre from 4pm this Saturday, 30 July.
