One of LOUD WOMEN’s most beloved bands, Argonaut have played several times with us. Read about them in the Morning Star and here again.

Purveyors of fiery female fronted alternative punk rock. The band released their self-titled debut in 2012 and have recently unleashed their second album ‘Try’.



Didn’t manage to take any photos of Arxx when they played for us in Brighton (too much of the dancing), but suffice to say that they are FUCKING AWESOME and other drummers might not want to share breakables with them.



Flippin amazing electro-filth, Blindness headlined the stage of our very first ever LOUD WOMEN gig. (Nice review here.) Legendary guitarist Debbie Smith also occasionally graces the DJ decks of the LOUD WOMEN afterparty. We love these women lots.

Echo & the Beats


This amazing punk-skacore band played our first Brighton gig at the Hope & Ruin on 23 May 2016, and we were having too much of a good time to take a photo – so we nicked this one off their website. They’re awesome!

Seminal 90s riot grrrl band ‘reformed’ for our V-Day Ball on 13 Feb 2016 … that is to say, all the historic bass players from the band got together for a one-off special set.

Atmospheric, groove driven, finely polished art rock with the occasional chaotic breakout, MX Tyrants offer you a sound reminiscent of the early 80s, yet a beast all of its own.
