It's always good when a band from your hometown escapes and makes music that is heard by more than 5 people outside of the said town's postcode. My hometown is Southampton and very few bands escape. Band of Skulls are one of only 3 bands in my memory that have done so and they've done so in style; I-Tunes single of the week, world tours, selling out the 2000 capacity Forum in London last year and appearing on The Twilight sound track to name a few highlights.
The band bring their ballsy blues rock to The Green Door store on Thursday 31st March, in what is definitely a intimate venue for the band!
Tickets are available from Rounder, Resident, Ape, Seetickets and WeGotTickets. This will definitely sell out (at the time of writing it's a third of the way there and it's been on sale since Wednesday), so pick up your tickets asap!

We have a logo! It's up there! It was done by this talented chap: Billy Mather. Check his stuff out and I dunno, buy something of his, or commission him to paint characters on the outside of your house.
Suuns show is THIS SUNDAY. The album is Rounder Records' album of the year so far, and quite frankly I can see why, it's flipping amazing! Support comes from 2 of my favourite local acts Vile Imbeciles and Restlesslist.
