thisGIRL get dream festival slot

Rotherham’s post-hardcore crew thisGIRL have confirmed an appearance at this years Reading and Leeds Festivals.

The band will appear on the Carling Stage at Reading on the Friday and Leeds on the Sunday.

The festival fulfills an ambition of drummer Ryan, who when interviewed by Punktastic earlier this year was keeping everything crossed with regard to a festival appearance.

Ryan said: “The summer festival thing would be ace, fingers crossed, eh?”

Looks like you can uncross those fingers now Ryan…

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
