We are thrilled to be welcoming back Unpop favourites The Just Joans to The Wee Red Bar to headline a very exciting bill on the 16th August.
Ever since we first got our grubby mitts on a copy of Last Tango In Motherwell back in the heady days of 2005, we have been a bit in love with The Just Joans’ particular brand of gloomy, angsty indiepop. Their songs about coming of age in the 1990s in Lanarkshire are underscored by a self-aware, wry humour that balances out the inherent misery of the subject matter and makes for surprising sing-along material.
Following on from last year’s excellent LP, Buckfast Bottles In The Rain, we understand they have just finished recording a new EP and so are looking forward to hearing what they’ve got up their sleeves for us.
Support comes from awesome Bristol/Norwich-based The Middle Ones and also from GUMS, who, making EPs called things like “Antipathy” and also hailing from the West of Scotland, are perhaps in some ways musical heirs to The Just Joans.
Unpop will be playing non-stop indiepop after the bands until 3am and all this we offer you for the mere sum of £4. It might be the middle of the festival, but this is the only place you want to be on this date, believe us.
