Bombskare + PorkPie - Edinburgh Hogmanay on Tuesday 31st December 2019
Bombskare - Introducing the bishops of bounce, the sorcerers of skank, the undisputed masters of Scottish death reggae, the one and only Bombskare - the closest thing you'll see to an actual northern powerhouse.This nine headed ska demon has been tearing up stages the length and breadth of the British Isles since before The Crusades. Reaching zero to sixty skanking miles from a standing start, they combine top quality dance-along songs with incredible punctuality - leaving every stage like Tokyo following a visit from Godzilla.
Renowned for their technical prowess as much as their infectious ska anthems, they combine lush, three-part harmonies with choppy guitar attacks and an explosive horn section to truly blow the audience away.
One thing these guys know about getting a crowd to dance is everything..
