Johnny Foreigner, Misfires + Cupcake Diaz and The Felt Tip Pens @ The Victoria

14939458_1559888457371002_5875406412455867816_oSongs of Praise has been involved in bringing some fairly high profile names into Swindon over the last few months, this time next week sees quite possibly the biggest of them all. Johnny Foreigner are many things. Ferocious, intense, incendiary, energetic, passionate and powerful. Punk swagger might sit at the heart of what they do but their songs often seem made up of components of older emo and pop-punk songs, but remembered wrong, reversed and compressed into anxious nodes.


Support comes from local indie stalwarts Misfires and the wonderfully named Cupcake Diaz and The Felt Tip Pens, purveyors of bubble gum punk-pop and all round good eggs.
