About The Event
Back to perform their first full show in over three years, Rob Flynn (A.K.A. Secret Gang Handshakes) returns with their brand new album "Surfacing". Following 2020's abraissive EDM inflected "The Viceroy Of Pure Joy" with its defiant calls to arms for queer acceptance, "Surfacing" is an beguilling and intimate affair that sets its steely claws into the authors own life and mental health. Bearing all the poetic hallmarks they have become known for since their time in the highly lauded alt-rock outfit Won Mississippi, this could be their most personal collection of songs to date. Unpredictable and intoxicating, you don't want to miss this all-to-rare live show by this top performer.
Joining him as special guests is the band Dialogic, with their anthemic blend of indie-rock and soaring vocals. Their songs will be living rent-free in your head for weeks after.

Praise for Seret Gang Handshakes:
"An eclectic mix of genre-smashing music, deeply affecting lyrics coupled with an intense and totally wired in-your-face performance" [S McHugh - Is This Music]
"Genius! Let's all worship at his church of noise! Amen to that!" [Kowalsky!]
"The man's a f***ing poet. He's a psychotic street preacher. His live shows are at once intimate and confessional, and wildly epic alt.EVERYTHING!!" Marv [The Fly]
" mashing woodwinds, disgustingly chunky bass and punchy beats is the sound I didn't know I needed. " D. Cox [Pensacola Mist] on "The Viceroy Of Pure Joy"
"...a great balance of leftfield instrumentation, non-traditional arrangements and laser-focussed melodies, breakdowns and bloody amazing layered harmonies with beautifully poetic lyrics." [The Garageband Guide] on "The Viceroy Of Pure Joy"
