Big Box double-header with The Courtesans & Moving Moscow

 

Crewe's premier music venue is set for a big double-header of local music this weekend.

Featuring Wrenbury's Vikki Brown, The Courtesans headline their second show at The Box as part of a UK tour on Friday, February 27.

And they are backed by Crewe 6-piece Moving Moscow, who return to the Pedley Street venue for the first time since their raucous headline show there in September.

Singer Dan Parry said: "We've got some new material to debut so we're all massively excited for this gig.

"And it should be fun to play with The Courtesans as they're one of the more unique acts out there at the moment. They put on a great live show, with a twist.

"And the local links both bands have make it even more interesting. I know we're excited to play in our hometown again."

The Courtesans, a London-based all-female quartet, are following up a Valentine's night sell-out show at the Macbeth Club down in the capital.

The band challenges the perception of women's role in music and society. A spokesman said: "Their first single 'Genius' outlines the complete body transformation many women now feel they have to go through just to be accepted and to, in some way, feel normal.

"The Courtesans believe it is their right to express their sexuality on stage like many men in music have done for the past 50 years without being vilified, or their music dismissed, because of it."

Classed by some music media as 'doom rock', The Courtesans' music is a dark mix of rock and electro.

Tickets are £7 in advance via the bands themselves or at www.musicglue.com/the-box/events/27-feb-15-courtesans--moving-moscow-the-box/

Moving Moscow are planning an EP for the summer and play their first Manchester headline show at Gulliver's in the Northern Quarter on Friday, March 27.
