2014 has already been a busy year for Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo and there are no signs of it quietening down any time soon… with a special limited edition vinyl release for Record Store Day, and Emily writing her first score for a feature film starring Peter Mullan and Keith Allen due in UK cinemas later this year, they have now announced a UK tour for November.

Touring with their core line-up, Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo features Emily Barker on vocals and guitar, Gill Sandell on accordion, piano and flute, Anna Jenkins on violin and Jo Siverston on cello and bass. They will be supported on all dates by acclaimed Swedish singer/songwriter Christian Kjellvander.

We’re very pleased to announce Boom & Bass are returning to the venue in association with Kane FM to bring you a solid night of bass-filled music to Boileroom on May 2nd.

This week at The Boileroom

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!
