With a show promoted by the bands themselves, The Thinking Men are one of the three groups set to take centre stage at OPEN.

They have been described as 'one of the most original and authentic bands on the scene today' with their live performances serving up foot stomping anthems - something that often entices the audience into a frenzy.

Returning once again to their 'spiritual home', The Thinking Men will be playing and releasing some of their new music on the night.

Joining The Thinking Men as headliners are the recent winners of the 2018 LiveWire Battle of the Bands, Norwich indie rock band Bag of Cans.

Six-piece Norwich group Gladboy are the final band on the bill for OPEN's joint headline show.

Having originally started out as a trio, Gladboy have brought their lo-fi garage noise with a doo-wop edge to venues all across the city before adding tambourine, synth and trombone to form the six-piece that stands today.

Not only have they quickly become one of Norwich's most intriguing upcoming bands, they have also landed supporting slots for the likes of The Regrettes, Brix & The Extricated, Willie J Healey and L.A. glam rock sensations Starcrawler.

• Tickets to the show on March 9 are available for £7 advance from OPEN's website
