Foxyfest PresentsSaturday 9 December 2023
This year’s Foxyfest Xmas Party brings a powerful all female fronted line up to The Grand, here in Clitheroe. Confirmed so far are the unstoppable ‘Bastette‘ who’ve had an amazingly successful year on the festival circuit with their hook-ladened brand of rock. The brilliant ‘UGLY CLUB‘ known for turning mosh pits into raves with their dancey electro rock. Katie O’Malley and her band, bringing Americana, Blues & good ole Rock n’ Rock. Melodic songwriter Laura Mary with her ethereal tones and heartfelt lyrics. And the uber talented local singer songwriter Meeka Bradley.
Bastette has been described as exploding onto the stage like a supernatural force with unrestrained confidence and confessional vulnerability. She arms herself with sonic power and huge hooks, sometimes aggressive, sometimes hauntingly intimate but always authentic. Having just completed a Tour with ‘Those Wicked Rivers’, ‘The Fallen State’ and a large handful of Summer festivals they will be finishing the year here at The Grand.
Ugly Club is the party that everyone’s invited to. Led by the charismatic Imo, Ugly Club are set to tear across the country turning mosh pits into raves with their dancey electro rock, bringing together everyone who’s ever been made to feel ugly or unwanted.
FFO: ENTER SHIKARI – FALL OUT BOY – VUKOVI – DON BROCO – YOU ME AT SIX
We want to build a community of people that can feel free to dance, sing, shout and scream to their heart’s content without shame. Wherever those people are, whether it’s listening to our music, connecting with us online or in the audience at a show. We’ve all felt uncool or like we didn’t belong before, we want our shows to be the place we can all let loose and get ugly!”
Laura Mary – Melodic songwriter from the heart of Lancashire. Expect ethereal tones and heartfelt lyrics. With influences drawn from Joan Baez, Stevie Nicks and Laura Marling, you will be taken on a journey of emotion and soul. Her first EP Gods and Monsters came out in 2020 and now she is back with more new music to serenade, with an array of folk and siren like harmonies.
Katie O’Malley – A voice that pours with emotion and fills a venue. Hailing from Manchester and proud northerners, Katie and her band describe their sound as a mix of Americana, Blues & good ole Rock n’ Rock. Their 70’s inspired music takes you on a journey of catchy melody to gritty guitar sounds and gravelly throttling vocals, giving an essence of Janis Joplin brought into modern-day rootsy rock.
Band in tow Katie has played a variety of festivals including Wychwood Festival and Upton Blues, received radio play from BBC Introducing and Planet Rock Radio, supported Jill Andrews on her UK tour and her music has been featured in the no.1 hit Netflix film Kissing Booth 2.
Meeka Bradley is a singer songwriter from Clitheroe in the Ribble Valley. Writing for acoustic guitar and vocals, Meeka’s sound mixes elements of modern indie with a splash of irreverent surrealism and quirky realism.
