Notts, 6th Dec - The Wave Pictures/Lardpony/August Actually

The Wave Pictures are one of the hardest working bands in the world at the moment, releasing annual albums of guitar solo-laden and lyrically idiosyncratic indie rock, and touring tirelessly. We love them at House Vs Home, and we know you do(/will) too, so we're having them back in Nottingham for the 4th time in 3 years.

This time we welcome David, Franic and Jonny - touring in support of their excellent Long Black Cars (released earlier this year on Moshi Moshi Records) to The Maze, a venue we've been wanting to try out for ages. We have no doubt they'll put on a fantastic show, full of back-catalogue favourites.

...and speaking of back-catalogue favourites, defunct Derbyians LARDPONY are making a triumphant comeback as the main support for this show. It's been a long 3 years but Tom, Pod, Nathan and mysterious new keyboard player are finally returning to warm our icy hearts with synthtastic sci-fi pop. We are insanely excited, and proud, to play host to this overdue reunion.

And, if that's not all, the HvH house band, August Actually, will open proceedings with songs about werewolves, love, death and victorian communication technology.

This is the first Lardpony gig since December 4th, 2008. Four years! I'm a bit nervous.

This is tomorrow! See you all there!

The times!:

8:00PM - Doors
8:30PM - August Actually
9:15PM - Lardpony
10:00PM - The Wave Pictures

I'm expecting these will be pretty tight, at least to start with, as we're extremely organised on this one. So don't be late or you'll miss a thing.

I plan to turn up early enough to catch August Actually, but late enough to miss The Doors.

Now THAT was a special night. The best AA have played in ages, the best Lardpony have played in ages (geddit?) and, one would expect, the best the Wave Pictures have played in ages.

Thanks to everyone for coming along, and to Lardpony for reforming.
