Dream Nails - Live - The Lexington - Londno - 13.02.2018 - Ant Adams-33.jpg

What: Dream Nails

Where: The Victoria, Dalston

When: Thursday 26th July 

We’re big fans of London four-piece Dream Nails, and had a raucous chat with them back in April this year which you can read here. Live, their feminist raw punk is infectious, drawing on the spirits of all the punk women who have gone before them. When talking to the girls about their show, they said ‘It’s such a beautiful thing to create a safe space and be able to breathe, and be angry, silly, whatever, together!’ Come on, how good does that sound? They'll be joined on the night by forces of nature Plasmic and Sabiyha.
