Raw Power Festival In London
Venue: Tufnell Park Dome, London
Eclectic bands unite for the second year.
Ominous electronic pulses and rumbling drums should warn us there’s a storm brewing, but it’s only after a 15-minute intro that Newcastle five-piece Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs explode. Suddenly we find ourselves a bit breathless, watching their now shirtless vocalist Matt Baty atop a speaker stack, going through a state of trippy catharsis not usually witnessed this early on a Saturday afternoon.
