Your guide to the happenings over the next 7 days at The Boileroom..
Wednesday April 9th – Victorian Whore Dogs EP Release Show
Local Post-Hardcore/sludge quartet Victorian Whore Dogs launch their anticipated EP. Think somewhere between Nick Cave and Iron Monkey and VWD’s more or less what you get! These guys always deliver and entertaining and captivating performance and have a bucket full of new material to show off. Prepare to headbang!
Support comes from GreenHorn, Morass of Molasses and Gutlocker
Thursday April 10th – Scritti Politti
80s icon Scritti Politti will grace the venue for the evening, bringing us a smattering of nostalgic punky pop music reminiscent of the decade. The show is a rare headline performance away from the short run Scritti has supporting Manic Street Preachers the day before and two days after – what a treat!
Support comes from ModerniM DJ Vincent Synan, an all-round arbiter of tasteful boogie music. Vince will provide a suitably eclectic selection of tunes past and present to sooth your soul and put a grin on your face. Soul, Funk, Reggae, IndieDance, decent Pop and a Electronica are all on the cards.
Friday April 10th – Zac Smith and his band (EP Launch show)
Local hero Zac Smith is celebrating the release of his EP on Friday night with a FREE ENTRY event. The show will also feature performances from Boileroom faves Bare Jams, Spicy White Louise and Naomi Coombes. It’s set to a great evening full of good vibes and knee slapping – geddown!
Sunday April 13th – Stitch and Bitch (Free entry)
Following the success of the last few craft evenings we’re delighted to bring back “Stitch & Bitch” – a free entry evening of craft creating and nattering for experienced ‘sew-and-sews’ (sorry) and total beginners alike. Come down, meet some new people and get creative! Free Entry too, horray!
Tuesday April 15th – Arkon Fly
Nestling-in alongside the likes of Duke Dumont and Gorgon City, the London multi-instrumentalists – Big Jam and Bixby – mix a heady, seductive vocal refrain with a bouncing ball of bass-line and prickling synth piano hook to conjure-up dreamy dance-floor nostalgia. This is set to be an excellent night of dance music and good vibes
and that’s the weekly round-up. Thanks for reading and hopefully see you soon!
