This event is all ages

The Leeds trio embraces the brevity and ferocity you’d expect from self-professed Wire fans. But within those parameters, all bets are off. Singer/guitarist Luciel Brown, bassist Rob Riggs, and drummer Mike Ainsley treat songwriting as a game of Tetris—the playing field might be narrow, but there’s a palpable joy in the way they flip and rearrange the elements into new interlocking patterns.

On Useless Coordinates, Duffin’s sax isn’t just some decorative noisemaker, but a crucial corrupting influence. For a genre once defined by limitless possibility, post-punk has codified into a familiar formula of discordant guitars, propulsive bass, and melody-averse sing-speak. But if Useless Coordinates embraces post-punk as a received language, Drahla remind us there’s still freedom and joy to be had when speaking in tongues.
