at The Junction

Organised by Cambridge Junction

What better way to underscore Conservative economic policy than with the sound of PURE EVIL? Part metal-recital, part exorcism, #TORYCORE combines sludge and doom metal with the Budget speech 2015; a pounding subverbal deathgrowl with text from the blue suits at Tory HQ. Chris Thorpe and Steve Lawson on guitar. Lucy on vocals. Lyrics by George Osborne and the architects of austerity. #TORYCORE is twisted avant-garde metal and a guttural vocal that plays like a verbatim record of a government ripping society’s guts out. This is a free, ticketed event, presented by Cambridge Junction as part of the 'power and resistance' themed Cambridge Festival of Ideas. Instead of paying for a ticket, please bring with you an edible donation to the Cambridge City Foodbank or a cash donation to another local direct action charity (tbc).
