The Victor Pope Band

Saturday 1st Sep // 18:30 // SKETCHY BEATS

After forming at the end of 2012 this supergroup is the remains of Ginger and the Tramp & Sabai and The Woods, this is Edinburgh's premiere anti-folk, post-punk, agit-pop 5 piece. Delivering finely crafted, chaotically delivered, well intended songlettes with ever such a slight tongue in the cheek. Described as "Edinburgh's craziest band", one dose of The Victor Pope Band and your life will never be the same again!

Although their alternative post punk, lo-fi indie, anti-folk, silly, confusing and vaguely pseudo-intellectual sound may sound a mouthful it is definitely going to get you up off of your feet but even more so smiling, dancing and right into that festival mood this year!
