Washing Machine proudly presents


Following their rapturously-received sell out show at The Hunter Club earlier this year, we are giddy to the gizzards to welcome back Essex DIY punk legends THE MEFFS!

Since exploding onto the East Anglian scene in 2019, THE MEFFS – aka Lily on vocals/guitar and Lewis on drums/backing vocals – have built up a reputation as purveyors of frantic punk anthems and an absolute must-see live sensation. After routinely selling out local and national shows, 2021 saw THE MEFFS invited to destroy London’s legendary Roundhouse at Frank Turner’s four-date Lost Evenings festival, alongside headliners HRH Punk.

Following their self-titled debut demo (recorded in a day, and receiving exposure on BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, and Radio X) THE MEFFS released four singles, recorded by Billy Lunn of The Subways and at Black Cactus Studio. These received international airplay and spots on Spotify playlists. Their new album, currently being recorded with Frank Turner, is due for release in 2022, alongside multiple festival appearances including Futurama and Rebellion.

Support comes from bringers of brilliant bangers ANNA’S BONES, purveyors of punk perfection QUEEN DOGS, creators of kickass chaos HUNGRY and rifftastic Lords of the rumble RASCADE.

All ages are welcome. Under-14s must be accompanied by a parent or carer.
There is a fully-licensed bar on the premises. No ID, no alcohol.
