The Egyptian Room rocked out on April 9th, 2016, when Wolf Alice with opening act Slaves rocked the Old National Center in Indianapolis, Indiana! Both bands came ready to play and although it seemed that the crowd wasn’t familiar with either band, all were rocking out shortly after the opening song.
Slaves, a two person Punk/blues garage band, hails from Royal Turnbridge Wells. Laurie Vincent and Isaac Holman bring a fun edge to the punk world with the bouncy Cheer Up, London, in which they distribute popsicles while telling Londoners they’re already dead, and Where’s Your Car, Debbie, a song about an encounter with Sasquatch. Cheer Up, London won the 2016 NME Award for Best Video. Unlike most punk bands, Slaves are witty, funny, and endearing. After finishing up the tour with Wolf Alice, they returned to the studio and we look forward to hearing more good things from them sooner rather than later.
Wolf Alice hails from London and has enjoyed phenomenal success in the last year – both commercially and in the awards spotlight. Ellie Rowsell and company walked away with NME awards for Best Track (Giant Peach) and Best Act, beating out major competition from The Maccabees, The Libertines, Foals, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and Royal Blood. Their US tour date resumes in May when they join up with The 1975, links to tickets can be found here: https://www.songkick.com/artists/4126816-wolf-alice
