Rudebeard were formed at the end of 2018, and they specialise in energetic, sweaty, sweary, usually loud and occasionally thoughtful ska- punk, fast ska, slow ska, ska that’s not really ska and one attempted Scottish fitba anthem cos why no? Two years, five EPs & one pandemic later they have accrued a back catalogue larger than you should reasonably expect and they herein present it to you for your aural delectation. Tickets on the door from 7pm.
