Live At The Library
In one of the more ironic shows at BMF, loud punk four-piece Pinch Points are taking over the Brunswick Library to break the silence as only they can. After flooring the crowd as the opening band at Golden Plains 2020, the quartet will shake the stacks with their one-of-a-kind blend of biting and tongue-in-cheek tunes. The show is a free gig as the band double-headlines alongside shimmering dream-pop outfit Tender Buttons. The washy, ethereal sounds from the group are a far cry from their distorted counterpart, but the paired bands will definitely make for a unique experience. Follow the link here for more details.
