Xtra Mile Recordings are excited to announce that they will present a fantastic three-band bill on Wednesday 20 September 2017 at Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, Germany.
Taking place at the infamous Kaiserkeller venue, Xtra Mile Recordings will showcase some of the best talent on the roster with folk-punk sextet Skinny Lister headlining the evening with touring pals Beans on Toast and Will Varley bringing the bill to boiling point. Each artist’s live credentials are impeccable. There will also be a limited t-shirt and poster for the night, on sale at the venue. Take a look at the lineup and buy tickets here.
Xtra Mile has been increasing its profile in Germany, currently its third biggest market, with more airplay, building record sales and most of its roster now touring the country regularly. In the past year, and next couple of months, Frank Turner, Against Me!, Counterfeit. (nominated for Best Live Act at the Association of Independent Music Awards 2017), Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly., Skinny Lister, Beans on Toast, Will Varley, Ducking Punches, Rob Lynch and Seán McGowan have toured or will play Germany. Curating a stage at Reeperbahn represents another step towards a closer connection with the German music market.
Skinny Lister have been on a constant tear since the year began, from a European tour with the Dropkick Murphys to a US stint in March with Flogging Molly, before a widespread UK tour. They’ve played Glastonbury among other festivals in Europe, and will return to Hamburg with Beans on Toast on Halloween (31 October) during a headline European tour. They end the year with a massive UK co-headline tour with Beans on Toast, ending at Camden’s Koko in London on 10 December.
Beans on Toast hasn’t stopped all year either. He kicked off 2017 with a New Year’s Day show, joined the Flogging Molly Salty Dog Cruise, toured Germany (including a sold out show in Hamburg). In May he played UK pubs the entire month and has played over 22 festivals this summer including Glastonbury. He will also release his ninth studio album in nine years on his birthday, 1 December.
Will Varley spent mid-January supporting Frank Turner on a big North America and Canada tour. He played a few German dates on a European tour with Valerie June in the spring before returning to the US to support Lincoln Durham throughout May. He heads back into the studio after the Xtra Mile Reeperbahn showcase to record his third album in three years before playing his headline UK tour in January and February 2018 taking in London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
And of course, all three played the Frank Turner’s AIM (Association of Independent Music) Award-nominated Lost Evenings festival, across four nights at Camden’s legendary Roundhouse back in May.
Reeperbahn Festival, established in 2006, is a four-day music festival and business to business industry conference for music and digital spread across venues in the Reeperbahn area of Hamburg, Germany.
