EDGY psychedelic rockers Toba Caldera play at the Courthouse in North Street on Friday April 20.

Toba Caldera, from Barnsley, are a group of 20-year-olds looking to make a big noise in the psych rock scene. The band, comprising James Gilroy, Matthew Clayton, Nevyn Stevenson, Thomas Hemingway and Conor Egan, have been favouribly described by online psych-zine God is in the TV as “Accidental psych-grunge, this is the noisy side of northern youth.”

Together for just over a year the band have gained a reputation for dynamic, ferocious live performances with intense layered guitars, shamanic thee-way vocals and driving looped grooves, bringing favourable comparisons to The Cooper Temple Clause, The Black Angels, BRMC and The Horrors.

To see them, drop by the Courthouse in North Street from 9.30pm on Friday April 20.
