Help Stamp Out Loneliness (Manchester) This 6-piece, female-lead Manchester band have been wowing audiences since their debut album was released on WIAIWYA Records last year. Fans of The Smiths, Stereolab and Echobelly will be wetting their pants when this amazing band bring their beautiful, intelligent and witty indiepop to Pussy Whipped. A rare thing – indie music that borders on genius.

Seafield Foxes (Edinburgh) All-female punk rockers Seafield Foxes are one of the most mind-blowing, intense and brilliantly thrashy bands in Edinburgh. They are huge supporters of female bands in Edinburgh with their own “Rock Chick” nights and we are very excited about them performing for Pussy Whipped. Come oooon!
