Touchstone have announced two Christmas shows, at The Borderline in London on Friday December 12th, and at Bilston Robin 2 on Sunday December 14th, and have put together very interesting bills for both shows.
On Friday they will be supported by the violin-driven goth-metal of Symphony of Pain, who made a very strong impression at the Cambridge Rock Festival back in August. Sunday’s gig is a co-headliner, featuring IOEarth, who have been absent from the UK’s stages for far too long.
This years’ prog Christmas season will seem a little strange, with no Mostly Autumn Grand Opera House show due to the venue being booked up with pantomimes, and no Panic Room shows because of Gavin Griffiths’ commitments with Fish. But with Mostly Autumn, Marillion, Fish and now Touchstone all touring there’s not going to be any shorage of Christmas shows this year.
