So, we’ve called it a day pretty early for 2009. Last two shows were great: ZU were absolutely awesome and it was brilliant to see such a good turn out – The Rainbow’s courtyard was totally at capacity at one point! Likewise, Animal Hospital was totally enchanting, and we hope we can get him back over soon!

This last run of shows (including the mighty Part Chimp) have kinda taken it out of me, so I’m taking a break for the rest of the year. We’ll be back at the end of Jan/Feb time, with loaaaads of shows in the pipeline. However, don’t fret too much, as Capsule are currently celebrating their 10th birthday, and have 10 excellent shows over December to keep you occupied (you’ve missed two already – Monotonix last night who gave a belter of a performance as usual, and Tunng/Six Organs of Admittance this evening which we unfortunately also missed out on) so make sure you get yourself down to as many of those as possible. Plus, December also sees the return of other quality local promoters This is Tomorrow, as well as Chicks Dig Jerks 7th birthday, and Birmingham Promoters have some terrific gigs lined up as well so check all of those out too.

It’s been a wicked year for It’s Just Noise, which has seen some outstanding performances from Pneu, Shield Your Eyes, Experimental Dental School, Joan of Arc, Holy Mountain, Kong, Chickenhawk, Maths, and the aforementioned Part Chimp, ZU, and Animal Hospital. Not forgetting the many local bands that have played for us, to whom we are ALWAYS grateful! Absolutely massive huge gigantic thanks to everyone that’s played, and especially anyone that’s come to any of our shows – I can’t even convey how much we appreciate it.

First show announcement for the new year is the very welcome return of our favourite French noise rock/pop-ers Marvin in May. Anyone who saw them last time can testify to their incredible live performances, so don’t miss that one. Details on the ‘Upcoming Shows’ tab at the top of the page.

Lots more 2010 shows to be announced in the run up to Christmas so keep checking back…

Have a great Xmas & New Year and BIG thanks again for your continued support!
