  • The Jaw 2017

    The Jaw

    • Time: 10:00pm
    • Info:  Described by Yack Magazine as 'serving up a chin slapping plate full of balls with a heaping side order of ovaries...sure to melt your face to a slimy puddle of awesome', The Jaw are a never note perfect wit-post punk trio from Brixton. One third harsh on the ear, two thirds easy on the eye, they sing/shout weird pop songs about such everyday subjects as finding and falling in love with decapitated human hands and philosophising on what would happen in the world if it turned out god was gay. Performances from The Jaw often feature levels of boy-girl swordplay, radioactive makeup and skin on show some conservatives may find offensive. Amen.
