NME Generation Next Tour: Howler + The Cast Of Cheers + Gross Magic + Splashh
This new music showcase sees three exciting acts - Howler, The Cast of Cheers and Gross Magic - tear through 11 UK towns in October.
This event takes place at KOKO, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.

Howler tour dates
Math Rock has never sounded so good. This Irish 4 piece combine tight guitar riffs with stomping drum beats resulting in infectious 3 minutes songs. Foals and Two Door Cinema Club watch out!
The Cast Of Cheers tour dates
Gross Magic are an amazing band from Brighton. Their sound recalls the pop sensibility of Elo, the grunge riffs of early Nirvana, the carefree adolescence of loser-era Beck and the lo-fi production of Ariel Pink.
Gross Magic tour dates
Formed in early 2012 after New Zealand-born frontman Sasha Carlson and Australian guitarist Toto Vivian left the shores of the Southern Hemisphere for the grey skies of East London, joined by Englishman Tom Beal on bass, with drummer Jaie Gonzalez completing the line-up. They immediately turned heads with their distinctive sound - a tropical, tripped out take on swirling psych-garage, doused with insouciance, vitamin D and dizzying kaleidoscopics.
