    Nic Armstrong, who has toured and opened up for bands like Oasis and The Pretenders, will be at Will’s Pub tomorrow night, doors opening at 9pm.


    Local talent Sterling Schroder and The Woolly Bushmen are set to support the British born rock singer, who is currently prepping a new album and touring nationwide to re-engage fans. Armstrong, who is touring under the moniker “Nic Armstrong & The Thieves,” told us he is excited about being in Central Florida again.


    “I’m really looking forward to the show at Will’s Pub. I like Orlando a lot. I’ve been lurking around the Winter Park area recently and wanted to set up a gig. I last played in Florida almost ten years ago when we were on tour with The Bravery and Dead 60’s. I’m not sure it will be quite as debaucherous as that time but it does promise to be a great night! – with two local bands that are making all the right kind of noises!


    My musical existence has been quite odd since relocating to the States from England; things are back in a groove and I’m excitedabout the new songs, playing live and the follow-up to the Pocketless Shirt EP – which is almost finished.”
