THE 900 – The Tony Hawk Pro Skater Covers Band + Guests
7.30pm, Friday 6th October, Bedford Esquires,
Picture this… It’s August 1999, people are getting excited about Red and Blue Pills, Star Wars have embarked on the first of their many prequel films, frosted tips & Sea Monkeys are all the rage and the Dalek-esque tones of Dial-Up fill the airwaves and landlines… But none of that is important because Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater has just entered the world of video games with a Soundtrack that we simply weren’t ready for!
The 900 are the UK’s first and only Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater cover band. Formed by their mutual understanding that no other soundtrack could ever top THPS, The 900 gives you a reason for your back to hurt in the morning. With the approval of the Birdman himself they’re ready to kickflip into every big banger from THPS1 to American Wasteland.
So roll back the years, get in the pit and come thrash around to some of the best Punk Rock and Ska tracks from Tony Hawk’s legendary series featuring tracks from the likes of Rage Against The Machine, Nirvana, Dead Kennedys, Millencolin, Bodyjar, Green Day, Alien Ant Farm, Refused, Ramones, AFI, Johnny Cash, Black Flag, Misfits, Adolescents, Agent Orange, Goldfinger, Less Than Jake, Flogging Molly, No FX, CKY, Motorhead, Suicidal Tendacies, Papa Roach, Bad Religion, Fu Manchu, System Of A Down, Lagwagon, My Chemical Romance, Powerman 5000, Queens of the Stone Age, Swingin’ Utters, Zebrahead, Kiss and many more.
Tickets priced £12 are on sale from Friday 2nd June at 10am from Seetickets and in person from Slide Record Shop and Esquires Bar.
