SEXBEAT is teaming up with London’s legendary 100 CLUB and DIY MAG to co promote this show at multi purpose creative space TOTAL REFRESHMENT CENTRE, Stoke Newington.

Tickets are FREE ENTRY with RSVP while limited stocks last.

Born from the same Toronto post hardcore / noise scene that produced METZ and Burning Love, Greys wear their influences on their sleeve. The spirit of Drive Like Jehu, Jesus Lizard and most noticeably Fugazi is alive and well in their music with the lead track on LP ‘If Anything’ playfully named ‘Guy Picciotto’.

Support comes from female post punk group PRIMETIME and punk hellraisers CLAW MARKS.
