Punk and metal on the Boulevard

ROCKERS can enjoy a high-octane evening of punk and metal as two North West bands make the short trip to Wigan to perform tonight.

Liverpool melodic punk rockers Fat Phace will make their debut in the borough on Dogglegg Promotions’ latest bill at The Boulevard this evening.

The four-piece, made up of vocalists and guitarists Bob and David E, bassist David T and drummer Ken, are inspired by subversive and politically-conscious Canadian act Propagandhi and have become known for their sense of humour and infectious enthusiasm for playing live.

The group will perform songs from their back catalogue and may even include some tracks from their upcoming new album, which will be released on Liverpool label Antipop Records.

Fat Phace will be supported by Bolton solo metalcore act Kris Fogg, while Dogglegg Promotions also hopes another band, yet to be confirmed, will step in and complete the line-up.

Promoter Rob Fairhurst said: “Fat Phace are playing in Wigan for the first time and they like to play with a smile on their faces. They also take pride in their DIY work ethic.

“We’re also looking forward to Kris’s set. We don’t get many solo artists playing metal so it should definitely be an interesting night.”

Dogglegg Promotions has already got the live scene off to an explosive start in 2014 with an appearance from Italian technical metallers Barely Awake, with support from Wigan metal band Cale Lane and melodic hardcore outfit Fair Do’s.

Fat Phace and Kris Fogg will perform at The Boulevard, on Wallgate, tonight. The doors open at 9pm and entry is free.

Dogglegg Promotions regularly puts on nights of original acts on Friday nights. Any bands looking for a slot can contact Rob by emailing elvis.legg@outlook.com or visiting www.facebook.com/pages/dogglegg-promotions.
