The Dirty Stop-Outs hope to be playing the festival circuit regularly come 2017 and are finishing off 2016 with a series of good profile shows, including The Pisdicables London album launch and a Strawberry Fair benefit show at The Portland Arms supporting Cara Defektor and Dogshite. A number of ep’s and an album are to follow late 2016-early 2017
