Wandering Oak brings you a Stolen Body Records co-headline show:

• BOYTOY • (USA. Stolen Body Records / PaperCup Music)
BOYTOY is a summer-time strut down a New York City sidewalk as the sun slips behind the horizon, where cement meets the shore and waves crash on pavement. Their sound ebbs and flows between natural harmony and destruction - embodying the bright grooves of the 1960’s with heavy guitar riffs snatched from the Lower East Side 1970’s.

Striking a contagious chord (or three!) in forthcoming sophomore LP “Night Leaf”, band founders Saara Untracht-Oakner (vocals, guitar) and Glenn Van Dyke (vocals, guitar), are joined by Chasé Noelle (formerly of Thelma and the Sleaze) and Lena Simon (also of La Luz), resulting in a record and band that evokes the sound of the summer we've all been crying out for!

FFO The Go Go's / Chastity Belt / Allah-Las

• Fruit Tones • (Stolen Body Records / Greenway Records)
The other half of our Stolen Body two-header - hot dog shakin', boogie makin', fresh cream takin' garage jivin' straight outta Manchester, UK. Guaranteed to get those legs movin' and bodies tremblin'. YUP!

FFO King Khan And The Shrines / Iggy And The Stooges / New York Dolls

• No Teeth •
Doom pop youth in flux between 3- and 5-piece forms, fast becoming recognised around these parts as being a dependable source of riotous grunge-savvy kicks. Already shared stages with Paul Jacobs (twice!), YAKand Strange Bones, to name three.

FFO The Wytches / Sonic Youth (of course) / Beatdown Records staff fraping Sam's FB profile when he's out for lunch

• Star Cult •
New noise from members of Moon Rover. Expect a short, sharp shot of overdriven Fuzz straight to the hypothalmus.
FFO Ty Segall / Uncle Acid and the deadbeats / Electric Wizard
https://starcult.bandcamp.com/
