Words: Ellie Ward
Manchester bad boys Cabbage have had a busy time just recently with live shows, and that's about to hot up further later this month with the announcement of three new dates - their biggest headliners to date.
Cabbage will head to the capital on Thursday June 29 to play London's Scala, followed by Birmingham O2 Institute3 the night after, and on Saturday July 1 they hit Manchester O2 Ritz. Support for the shows will be from The Blinders and Strange Bones.

In addition, the five-piece embark on their 'Healing Brexit Towns Experiment Tour' in October - see dates on poster header. Joining them on these dates will again be be psych-punks The Blinders, together with rising Liverpool pop punks Queen Zee and the Sasstones and newly emerging Proletariat.
The band posted notice of the 14-date tour on Facebook, saying:
"Hello dear followers of Brassica and those who crave prosperity. Given the delicate situation our country faces and the mounted pressure caused by the arrogant and morally outrageous government in power, brexit looms above us like a fart in the dark, the kind of deal that would not only be catastrophic if done by the tories, it would serve no purpose to those who voted for it or against it, just those who have lots and lots of money.
"Thus, this led us to believe that the best place for a band like us would be more suited in the towns of Britain. We'll hold our spittled chins high and spread our message of hope in a cynical and self deprecating way. We give you the healing brexit towns experiment tour."
