BAD DREAMS is a new “annual happening,” with two irresistible alternative all-dayers at New Century Hall & Band on the Wall.

Day two, on the Bank Holiday Monday at Band on the Wall, offers up the harsher side of alternative. The day starts with sets from DEAFDEAFDEAF, Manchester’s self-styled “independent post-something band,” fellow North West alt-rockers Déjà Vega, and Cardiff feminist punks Panic Shack.

Fresh off the back of two sold-out hometown shows at The White Hotel in April and their new Connla’s Wall EP, surprise international sensations Maruja promise to offer the most brutal saxophone riffs all weekend amidst their gnashing break-beat post-punk. Model/Actriz also bring their queer industrial noise-rock thundering down on New Century for the second-to-last performance of the day.

Closing out the weekend are New York art-punks BODEGA, wrapping up the festivities with their angular, acerbic, and compelling post-punk. They’ll give the UK a taste of their fifth album Our Brand Could Be Yr Life for the first time.
