Why? – 8 October

Venue: The Old Market 7.30pm
Let’s get some things out of the way. WHY? is a band—three Cincinnati-bred gentlemen who’ve shared a whole lotta past together. Two of them are brothers. Yoni Wolf, who founded the project by his lonesome in 1998 is one of those (see also: cLOUDDEAD, Greenthink, Reaching Quiet). The other is Josiah Wolf, who first started hitting the skins at their father’s synagogue during worship service. They like being in a band together so don’t ask about it. WHY?’s third fella is Doug McDiarmid, a high school friend born to French teachers, discovered by the Wolfs whilst playing guitar in a Steve Miller cover band. £14


Venue: Green Door Store 7.30pm
Back in March when Cave Painting graced the stage of The Prince Albert, there was a feeling in the room that this five-piece belonged somewhere else – somewhere bigger. They deserved a larger venue and, with that, a larger crowd. Make sure that you begin climbing with them now otherwise you’ll be left behind, hanging onto the bottom rung, struggling to get a ticket to see them before they’re promoted to the city’s larger venues. Be there or miss out. £7

Mama Rosin – 11 October

Venue: Green Door Store 7.30pm
Since forming in 2008 Swiss-French trio Mama Rosin have forged a unique sound all of their own. Drawing from a wide range of musical styles encompassing delta blues, cajun roots and rock’n’roll, Mama Rosin have earned the accolade as being the original purveyors of a fierce musical hybrid coined “Zydepunk”. £9
