Never miss another 'Palma Violets' show
This event takes place at Tunbridge Wells Forum, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
For a long time if you wanted to hear the most exciting new band in Britain, you knocked on a tall black door off the Lambeth Road. An aging British Rail building - part art studio happening, part squat – Studio 180 was where south London's Palma Violets were gestating, away from sunlight and the world at large. A thrilling rock'n'roll four piece, from September 2011 they were holed-up here writing songs "their friends could dance to" and occasionally putting on celebratory, ecstatic parties about which word quickly spread. Palma Violets are Sam Fryer (vocals/guitar), Chilli Jesson (vocals/bass), Pete Mayhew (keyboard) and Will Doyle (drums), playing energetic, crooning garage rock with a dreamy, psychedelic edge.

There's a ragged glory to Broken Hands' music - a rumbling growl and cathartic howl suggesting decades on the road, if not the wagon; half a lifetime of hard days, wild nights and regretful dawns.
The fact that the impossibly youthful band are actually only just embarking on their own rock odyssey is hard to fathom, and will probably prove deeply upsetting for the many addled bluesmen forced to symbolically sell their souls to achieve something like it.
The roots of R&B run strong in such young blood, but dare to call what they do 'classic' rock and they'll scoff politely: these are contemporary songs, culled from countless sessions down in their borrowed basement rehearsal space. They've just done it in a quiet bit of Kent.
