Yamatatta 2020 Tour
Damnably & Go Ape Promotions present Otoboke Beaver at Bristol Fleece with Drinking Boys & Girls Choir.
After a decade of squeezing gigs into the notoriously hardcore work hours Otoboke Beaver quit (yamatatta) their day jobs to become professional touring musicians in 2020.
The Yamatatta Tour sees them joined by labelmates 'Drinking Boys and Girls Choir' from Daegu, Korea.
Otoboke Beaver are an all-female quartet from Kyoto, Japan, consisting of Accorinrin (lead vocals and guitar), Yoyoyoshie (guitar and vocals), Hiro-chan (bass and vocals) and Pop (drums and vocals). The band’s name is taken from a local ‘Love Hotel’. Taking a nod to the likes of Melt Banana, Shonen Knife, Bo Ningen, Guitar Wolf and The Boredoms, they play brilliant noisy, ballsy punk rock and sing in Japanese (or Kyoto slang). Crazed, deranged garage, punk-rock-pop at break-neck speed, the band are influenced by western Riot Grrrl attitudes and the sounds of punk and angular post-rock. Live, they play frantic fast-paced 18-20 song sets and often invade the audience, stating "you will not able to take your eyes off us".

Drinking Boys And Girls Choir
Skate-Punk trio from Daegu City, Korea inspired by Sum41, NOFX and Daegu's 90s-00s hardcore punk/indie-rock scene. They formed in 2013 when two drummers MJ and Meena shared a rehearsal space, and decided to form a band. Meena switched to Bass and guitarist Bondu (who had just finished his military service) answered their ad. They bonded over a shared love of drinking, skating and punk.
