Tropical F**k Storm at The Mech
Tropical F**k Storm are joined by special guests Mesa Cosa and DRMNGNOW for a night of music at The Mech
Tropical F**k Storm (TFS for short) is a newborn band formed by Gareth Liddiard and Fiona Kitschin (The Drones). Liddiard and Kitschin are joined by maniacs Lauren Hammel (High Tension) on drums and Erica Dunn (Mod Con, Harmony) on guitars, keys and other gadgets. Not since John Lydon changed it up from the Sex Pistols to PiL has a curveball felt so bracingly exhilarating.
“Every thousand years or so, the Devil throws a party, as you well know, I’m never invited. But I hear this time around Mesa Cosa played. and. they. destroyed. EVERYTHING! Then.. every body got laid.” – God
