NEW VENUE
Damnably Presents: Say Sue Me + Hairband

Tue 16 October 2018

This gig has been moved to Stereo Cafe Bar, 20 - 28 Renfield Lane, Glasgow, G2 5AR.

Say Sue Me are a Surf inspired Indie-Rock/Pop act from Busan, South Korea and cited as one of 2018's ‘break-out bands'. Childhood friends Jaeyoung Ha (Bass) and Byungkyu Kim (guitar) met drummer Semin Kang and played in bands together since winter of 2012, when they met Sumi Choi at a tea shop in Nampo-dong. They liked her speaking voice and immediately offered her a spot as the vocalist in a new band that would become Say Sue Me. Sumi turned out to be a natural at songwriting. Semin sadly suffered trauma from a fall. New drummer Changwon Kim stands in while they await Semin’s recovery.

Following showcases at SXSW in 2018, the band released their sophomore album “Where We Were Together” and a RSD covers EP which won praise from Pitchfork, NPR, Billboard, i-D, The Independent, Stereogum, Paste, MTV, Uproxx. Fader, DIS, The 405 & more.

Hairband are a 5-piece from Glasgow, their first 5-song EP is on the way autumn 2018. They are influenced by their vibrant local Glasgow scene as well as acts like Cate Le Bon and Deerhoof, plus lots of post-punk and experimental pop. With a trio of guitars, Hairband blend intricate, jangly riffs with danceable beats, hooky bass lines, sweet melodies and layered vocal harmonies. They sing songs about gravity and the moon and have enjoyed sharing bills with bands such as Brix and the Extricated, Duds, The Yummy Fur and played at Doune the Rabbit Hole Festival 2017, also being nominated for Best Newcomer at The Scottish Alternative Music Awards 2017. Their song ‘Flying’ was also included on a compilation released by Money Advice Scotland in March 2018, alongside tracks from Mogwai, Sacred Paws and The Pastels.

Recently back from their first UK tour, the band feature members of The Yawns, Lush Purr, Rocky Lorelei, Kaputt, Breakfast Muff and Spinning Coin.
