The wait is over. After nearly 35 years, the Legendary Scottish post-punk band APB returns to New Haven for a rare performance at Café Nine, brought to you by Fernando Pinto Presents, whom brought APB to the Nightshift Café in 1988.

Hailing from Aberdeen, Scotland, apb gained a cult following in the States. College radio became a huge supporter of the band especially on the east coast. Songs like 'What Kind of Girl," 'One Day," and 'Rainy Day," remained in rotation alongside the classic 'Shoot You Down." This radio success allowed apb to tour the United States on twelve separate occasions with artists like The Clash and James Brown. And their influence on today's music scene is immeasurable with bands like Franz Ferdinand, The Faint, The Rapture, and LCD Soundsystem borrowing from apb's dance rock fusion.

So, some thirty years after the urgency of tracks like 'Shoot You Down" coupled with singer Iain Slater's commanding bass lines and heavily accented vocals, is best described as 'a throbbing mix of neo-funk and dance-punk, incredibly intense and visceral.
