London Gig – With Manuskript and Foxcunt

Saturday 2nd December
The Memepunks return for our traditional December anniversary gig joined by our good friends, Manuskript and Foxcunt.

First formed in 1990, Manuskript are the semi-official house band of Whitby Gothic Weekend. The energy and interplay between the six-member band onstage is infectious and their dashing style and wicked sense of humour have charmed audiences worldwide for the best part of 30 years.

Rounding out the lineup are new kids on the block, Foxcunt. Art, punk, cider, riot (and questionable band name), Foxcunt have rocketed to notoriety in the nearly two years since their debut gig at the Silver Bullet. Let them add YOU to their personal network!

And of course, it’s those wacky Memepunks with our genre-blending mix of mash-ups, kazoo solos, TV theme tunes and more.

The Islington, 1 Tolpuddle Street, N1 0XT
Doors open 7pm. (Pub will be open all day if you want to arrive early!)
Tickets £8 in advance, £10 on the door.

Together with burlesque performer Marie Devilreux and DJs Vade Retro and guests, Reptile also offers free sweets to keep you sugar buzzing until 4am!
