Marner Brown’s headline slot at Playhard will be the only break they are having from recording their new album so they'll be hungry to test some of the new sounds on the night. Do not miss this band. There's a yawning gap crying out for the next great British rock n roll band; it's got their name on it. http://facebook.com/marnerbrown * @marnerbrown
