Joanna Gruesome headline Fortuna POP!'s Shake the Shacklewell II

Hey, summer’s here and what better way to celebrate than with our Shake The Shacklewell all-dayer at London’s coolest venue The Shacklewell Arms on August 2, featuring five of Fortuna POP!’s finest acts with more bands still yet to be announced.

Headlining are the thrilling Cardiff-based noisepop five-piece Joanna Gruesome fresh from the success of the stunning debut album Weird Sister, followed closely by psych-pop contenders The Proper Ornaments with their blend of the Velvets and the Byrds. Not to mention Edinburgh indiekids The Spook School - sure to bring a smile to the face with their sing-a-long-a Pavement tunes and offbeat lyrics, Durham-based vegan straight-edgers Martha with their energetic, impassioned DIY pop punk, and the incredible Flowers, with Rachel Kenedy’s heart-stoppingly incredible voice (think Liz Fraser, think Harriet Wheeler – that good!) the perfect foil for Sam Ayres’ furious riffage. Plus three more bands still to be announced.

Come along, grab yourself a pint of great beer (The Shacklewell always has a range of craft beers on tap) and a burger or a hot dog (Big Apple Hot Dogs are resident in the kitchen), hang out in the beer garden, watch some seriously great bands and help us Shake The Shackwell.

Joanna Gruesome + The Proper Ornaments + The Spook School + Martha + Flowers + more bands to be announced + DJs
