There’s a busy month ahead at award-winning music venue Ramsgate Music Hall.
The month starts on Thursday 7th July with American indie rocker and studio wizard Kelley Stoltz. After spending years on the road playing rhythm guitar for Echo & the Bunnymen, the psych-pop genius is ready to tour his own music once again.
Post-punk minded quartet KIEFF combine their love for sonic onslaught, chaotic harmonies and the unusual to create exuberant and fierce songs. They travel from the Netherlands to visit Ramsgate on Thursday 14th July.
One half of Mexico’s Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, and now an exceptional solo act in her own right: J. Zunz comes to Ramsgate on Friday 15th July. Her music lies somewhere between Cocteau Twins and Mitski.
Canterbury singer-songwriter Will Whisson plays on Saturday 23rd July. He has busked his way across Europe to craft his songs, and this gig celebrates the launch of his second album Different Sides.
Sick Joy‘s ‘noise-pop’ has echoes of Pixies and Nirvana among many others. Newcastle born and now Brighton based, the trio travel to Ramsgate on Sunday 24th July.
Rising stars The Froot bring their psychedelic and progressive rock tunes to Ramsgate on Friday July 29th. A delicious throwback to the 60s and 70s, they’re essential for fans of The Doors, Pink Floyd, Hendrix and The Beatles.
And Deep State end the month on Saturday 30th July, with the very best in classic and modern underground dance music across the genres of Progressive House, Dark tribal, Techno, and Breaks. An unforgettable night of quality music, delivered by experienced DJ’s on the scene, well versed in reading the dance floor.

I think they’re trying to impersonate their inner Kurt Cobain & Nirvana . Lol
They probably would take that as a compliment .
They just look like ordinary young men to me.
Exactly Marva. If I pay to see a performer, I expect them to look a little bit out of the ordinary (from Elvis and Little Richard to Duran Duran and Culture Club and beyond, musicians made a big effort NOT to look “ordinary”!).
Ed Sheeran , Lewis Capaldi and Adele are all very “Ordinary ‘ and it hasn’t done their careers any harm has it ,regardless if you like them or not ?
I’ve got a broad eclectic taste in music and some people you just love their music even if they are very ordinary ,others I like for their flamboyancy and showmanship but ultimately the music has to be the main attraction .
“ Different strokes for different folks” as the saying goes .
I really can’t think of anyone more musically mediocre than Adele, though to be fair she does at least look like she’s had a wash (unlike the scruffy herberts in the pic!). As for Nirvana, I thought ‘Nevermind’ was one of the best albums of the 90s, but never liked actually LOOKING at ’em!
You sound like a pleasant chap.
You don’t like Nirvana??
One for your calendar Peter , On tv tomorrow evening ( Saturday) on Channel 5 at 8Pm
Adele : 30 Greatest Moments . . Enjoy ! Lol
I don’t. I just expect them to sing or act well.
That’s the trouble with people today, their expectations are so low.
Tbf, PC is well used to mediocrity in everything he says and does..
