Punk Karaoke comes to OUT West!!!

Before we start doing the lineup releases (coming soon), we just want to sneak this one in as a taster……

Yep, Punk Karaoke is on it’s way to Once upon a Time in the West Festival 2019.

For those of you who remember Endorse it, it was one of the firm crowd favourites and when Doublej&therocknrollswindle ( featuring John Whitehead from Fat , Drunk & Stupid & Badger Farcue from..well… Far-Cue! ) phoned up asking if they could bring the show along, it was done-thing.

If you have yet to see/partake, then grab a beer and fill your boots, it’s beyond ace and open to All!!
