With the leaves beginning to fall from the trees, the chills of the first frost approaching, it means only one thing, Autum is arriving. We’ve been busy preparing some incredible shows and line-ups for our autumn season, to say we’re excited doesn’t even begin to cover it. So, to get you in the mood as well, here is some of our highlights on what’s happening over the next month.
Kicking us off on Friday 6th October are our friends Punks Alive who present to you a feisty punk-rock gig featuring You Want Fox and Inkbomb. You Want Fox, a duo from Nottingham, formed in 2015 and released there debut single ‘Bad Girls’ which has reached 20,000 views on YouTube, since then the band have appeared on BBC Radio Introducing and other local shows. Joining them on the night will be Inkbomb, coming all the way from Nijmegen in the Netherlands, a really exciting band whose early performances have been heavily talked about. Their music can be described as a mix of Bad Religion, Pears and No Fun At All. Tickets for this gig are only sold on the door at £8.
Next up on the 7th October we have a special intimate gig with John Power. Best known as the frontman from CAST and the backing vocals and bassist in The La’s, he’s back to perform as part of his UK solo tour. We’ve been looking forward to this one for months and to celebrate we will be holding an official extended afterparty straight after the gig. DJs will be playing the very best in soul, jazz, funk, disco and more! Limited gig ticket availability* and it’s likely to sell out so get yours before they do. Get your tickets here.
The following weekend (13th & 14th) sees the return of our twice monthly afterparty, Social 11, expect DJ Cassie-Philomena Smyth playing the tunes you love to hear all night long. Saturday sees our newest promoters to come on board with us, The Catapult Club, host four great local bands; The Nature Centre, The Dollcanoes, The Crooked Hooks and Exotic Pets. This promises to be a great night full of local faces all out to help support four Brummie bands that we love. Tickets available here.
Punks Alive return on the 21st October with another killer lineup headlined by Mutant Reavers. Formed in late 2014 these guys rose from the wasteland swamps of Kiel in Germany. Since recording there first 4 song debut, “First Blood” the guys have gone on to tour the world with a unique sound that is as deadly as there name. Tickets for this gig are only sold on the door and cost £8.
The end of the month will see us transform the venue for a special Social 11 Day Of The Dead Halloween Party. DJs Lee & Aero will be playing hip-hop, 90’s, old skool and a bit of hispanic to get you in the mood. We will be rolling out our new cocktail bar for you to feast your eyes on too! Advance tickets cost £3 with no booking fee so if you want to save yourself some pennies go grab one of these limited tickets from here.
*John Power gig ticket includes entry to the official after show.
