Drop the Dumbulls to host July headline shows from Rongorongo and Cowtown



There’s a riot going on down in Drop the Dumbulls, as GetintothisDavid Hall casts his eye over a double-header the docklands venue is readying.

Early July sees two gigs hitting Drop the Dumbulls Gallery in Liverpool’s northern dockland area in quick succession, both sure to leave a noisy impression on the area.

On Saturday July 8, Leeds-based noisenik Cowtown trio follow up local dates at the wildly successful WRONG Festival with another riotous Merseyside proposition. Filling the first support slot are chaotic punks Ohmns, who prove time again on the Liverpool live scene that anything can happen at their shows, off the back of a 2017 GIT Award nomination.

Further support comes in the shape of tumultuous Leeds scumbags Hamer, plus Runcorn’s finest garage three-piece Uncle Jane. The night is set to be hosted by Shaark Records, who will be handing out copies of their new zine’s first edition.

Encore! Why the pantomime of encores is awful and must end

Once Drop the Dumbulls has dusted itself off, July 13 sees another enormous quadruple-header descend, with a lineup including Rongorongo and God on my right ready to lay waste to the dockside. Both have lately proved themselves two of the most exciting Merseyside acts to emerge lately, and receive support from darkwave electro goths Double Echo and trip-hop soundscapers Venusian.

With Drop the Dumbulls gathering pace as one of Liverpool’s most vital up and coming venues, these two nights are sure to cement its importance in the Merseyside scene’s fixture listings.
