As we stagger into the new year, still groggy from the emotional shit-show that was 2016, many of us will be looking for a packed out winter gig calendar to kick-start 2017. Well luckily for us the good folk at CLUB.THE.MAMMOTH have teamed up with Liverpool’s East Village Arts Club to present an all day event to shake off even the heaviest of post-crambo blues.

The Arts Club will open its doors early on the 21st of January to showcase a  line-up brimming with established and upcoming bands. So to help you digest what’s on offer, here’s a little preview of who and what the day has to offer.

Post-punk legends The Fall will headline the event with Mark E. Smith and his merry bandmates making their first live appearance of 2017. With an extensive back catalogue to delve into, its sure to be a belta!

Leeds’ finest Eagulls, fresh off the back of a great set at the Psych Fest, will return to Liverpool to deliver their trademark melancholic fuzz sound.

Psychedelic noise Merchants Hookworms in a bid to move feet and bend minds! With new music potentially around the corner, a fresh setlist from the lads is an exciting possibility.

Tipped for big things in 2017, Cabbage will provide the day’s dose of chaotic, satirical debauchery. With their live sets already becoming a thing of local legend, they are not to be missed.

Rough Trades newcomers Goat Girl will bring their heavy riffs to the City once again. With plenty of coverage from Apple’s Beats 1 Radio under their belt, the girls from London are bound to be big this year.

Tigercub also join the bill having recently released their first full length album late last year. With a ton of gigs coming in the 2017, their first should be there most energetic for sure.

Nottingham based Kagoule will be showcasing new tunes from their freshly finished second album.

Flying the flag loud and proud for the musically endowed City of Liverpool are Strange Collective, Ohmns and Pink Kink. All 3 are now stalwarts on the city’s circuit and will have no issue mixing it with the big guns.
