Celebrate Your Mother - especially if she can get you a ticket so you can go and enjoy the Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster on Monday.

If it means you have to send her out on to the street to beg then do it.

Eighties Matchbox are a cracking band whose songs needs to be unleashed on stage in front of a baying pack of music lovers for it to be fully enjoyed.

The band behind the gorgeous Celebrate your Mother, the hypnotic Presidential Wave and the anthemic Mister Mental, used on the Shaun of the Dead soundtrack, are playing at The Green Room in Welwyn GC from 8pm.

Each and every Eighties Matchbox track sounds like a declaration of war. Fiery screaming vocals backed up by dark spellbinding bass lines demand their audience kick and scream along with them.

After two albums - Horse of the Dog and The Royal Society - and a change of personnel (Rich Fownes replacing Andy Huxley) the band are back on tour and fans will be keeping their fingers crossed for a new album to come out as soon as humanly possible.

Supporting the band are local favourites Hazal Turnock and the Screaming Cockroaches and Joanovarc.

Turnock and the Cockroaches are making quite a name for themselves across North Herts and have played alongside The Subways this year.

Three-piece girl band Joanovarc, comprising sisters Shelley and Sam Walker and drummer Debbie Wildish, are also on the bill and will be rocking their socks off with strong riffs and top draw guitar solos.

It's an over 16 gig and tickets are available from City Sounds Promotions for £8 or for £10 on the door.
