Free Gig: Sweet Baboo and Threatmantics
Thursday 31 January
Sherman Cymru Foyer
Sweet Baboo is Stephen Black, a native of the North Wales countryside and a single-minded, idiosyncratic singer. Black possesses an ear for a sparkling melody, a restless soul, and a gift for a deft lyrical turn - from darkly funny to piercingly tender, twinklingly boastful to deliciously self-deprecating.
Bi-polar by nature, Threatmantics attempt to crowbar as much into rock and roll as possible. Veering wildly from heartbroken folk, to balls-out rock, to spine-crushing metal, to good-time pop; barely held together by very fine thread and pretty ribbons, they play music that sounds as much like the band they wish they were as possible.
