SEXTILE, CHUMP, WomenSaid at Broadcast, 21/1/18

The streets are empty due to the icy roads and legends about an oncoming snow storm. The fact that today is a Sunday doesn’t help either, however there is still quite a few dedicated people here tonight at Broadcast ready for a dose of post-punk and 80s reminiscent synthesizers.
