18/06 // May flew by with many a spectacle beheld at The Joiners, yet June hosts many more audible delights. Tribes bring with them a Zane Lowe endorsed ‘Hottest Record in the World’ title for their single ‘We Were Children’ and after already supporting Pixies, they’ll most certainly be up for blowing the minds of spectators on June 14th. A few days later on the 18th we welcome back local heroes Thomas Tantrum; back on track and readying their eagerly anticipated new album ‘Mad by Moonlight’ in this extremely special homecoming show.

The Dangerous Summer.
The Dangerous Summer // 05/06 www.myspace.com/dangeroussummer
Ghostpoet // 06/06 www.ghostpoet.co.uk
Named after Ernest Hemmingway’s book, The Dangerous Summer return to The Joiners after enthralling crowds on their last visit when they supported Francesqa. With a mammoth 23 dates in the UK across many small venues, the four piece from Maryland, USA will be performing songs from their recent CD ‘Reach for the Sun’. With hooks galore from tracks such as ‘The Permanent Rain’ and ‘Where I Wanna Be’, this is a band who are just as good to warm those bones on cold nights as well as soundtracking the summer evenings ahead.
Ghostpoet. Obaro Ejimiwethe (Ghostpoet to us) describes himself as simply ‘A lad with a lisp with some stories to tell’.... all we can say is, tell on. His roots may be in the Grime scene, but his style has evolved far beyond. The aggressive, ultra masculine peacocking associated with Grime performances has been replaced by his laid back, sweet and soothing mellow tones. However, the angst is ever present in his lyrics. With his debut album ‘Peanutbutter Blues and Melancholy Jam’ being released earlier this year on Giles Peterson’s Brownswood label and the single ‘Cash and Carry Me Home’ cropping up seemingly everywhere, this is your chance to see a rising talent in an intimate setting.
Thomas Tantrum // 18/06 www.thomastantrum.co.uk
Returning to their hometown, Thomas Tantrum are finally back in Southampton fresh from running around the country serenading audiences just about everywhere. Touring extensively with brand new single ‘Hot Hot Summer’ and past crowd favourites such as ‘Rage Against The Tantrum’ and ‘Work It’. With the release of their long awaited second album ‘Mad By Moonlight’ just around the corner, they’re sure to bring new material with them on their return as well as the tunes that got them to where they are today. Come and see one of Southampton’s best bands as we welcome back one of our finest.
Wolf Gang // 19/06 www.wolf-gang.co.uk
You may have heard of Wolf Gang already. The 23-year-old singer, real name Max McElligott, has been touted as one of the sounds of 2011, with a multitude of blog’s showing the love as well as a handful of SXSW shows under his belt (he’s also appeared alongside his band at Unit’s ‘We Are Rockstars’ club night). Inspired by the likes of Talking Heads and David Bowie, as well as more contemporary artists such as Arcade Fire, Wolf Gang’s sound packs in an abundance of suave panache, ear-thwacking beats and heart-throttling melodies. With debut Album ‘Suego Faults’ produced by the legendary Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips/MGMT), the Radio 1 A-list should watch out, Wolf Gang are coming...

Shai Hulud // 20/06 www.myspace.com/profoundhatred
American Hardcore at it’s finest, Shai Hulud are a mixture of all things bone cracking-ly sweet. Boasting an impressive line up of members, past and present (including Chad Gilbert from New Found Glory), they’ve stayed true and stayed strong, and after their absolute ball breaker of a record, Misanthropy Pure, they’re set and ready to tear Southampton a new one. Showing them the true British way will be London’s Last Witness, a band who boast music that won’t sit well with those with a thin skin. They’ll be accompanying them on their UK tour, set to start off at The Joiners on Monday 20th of June.
Crystal Stilts // 21/06 www.myspace.com/crystalstilts
This enigmatic quintet from Florida has created an extraordinary brand of music that they themselves have dubbed psychedelic punk. Since 2003 Crystal Stilts have been reconstructing everything pop and plying it to suit their own unique style. April 11 saw the release of their second studio album In Love With Oblivion which has attracted a lot of positive reviews from both NME and Pitchfork and makes it a worthy successor to 2008’s release ‘Alight of Night’. With nothing but positive reactions to the deeply creative and imaginative sound they have created, Crystal Stilts are heading for great heights, making any appearance a must see.

// Ed Sheeran - 14/05 @ The Joiners. In one of the most highly anticipated Joiners shows in recent history, Kal Levell opened the show to a room already full to capacity. The Irish songstress and her guitar wooed the crowd with songs off her latest EP and a cheeky McFly number to prepare the screaming girls at the front, ready and waiting for the flame haired one. It’s not often I hear ‘marry me’, ‘I love you’ and ‘you’re so sexy’ being bellowed out in the Joiners but as Ed Sheeran graced the stage it was like he’d been there a hundred times before as he proceeded to swoon the sold out crowd with his charm, talent and sensational lyricism. Blinded by the flash of cameras and deafened by the screams, he sang his first song ‘Grade 8’ mic free, dumbing down the crowd into complete silence. His set was littered with the stories of songs to come. Whether it was about a recent relationship split (‘UNI’) or the choice of a cuppa over a dying chicken (‘My Little Bird’), his lyrics pieced together like a perfect puzzle. Building each song from its foundations with effects
pedals aplenty coupled with the perfection in his rhymes and emotions, his sound wrapped around everyone’s eardrums and hearts. After thrilling the audience with ‘The City’ and songs from the ‘One Take EP’ it was Sheeran’s cover of Jamie Woon’s ‘Wayfaring Stranger’ which had the crowd picking their jaws up from the floor. The crowd watched in awe as he looped various vocal effects, whilst grabbing the mic and putting his all into it, leaving his guitar to one side with a cover that was arguably better than the original. Zane Lowe’s ‘Single of the week’ ‘The A team’ sent shivers down the spine and phones into the air, followed by an epic version of the track that launched him into stardom ‘You Need Me’. If that wasn’t enough, for his ‘encore’ he performed a handful of tracks including Bob Dylan’s ‘Make You Feel My Love’ in the middle of the crowd on a bar stool, creating a truly magical Joiners moment. As for Ed Sheeran himself, marry me?
