From being in the legendary Talulah Gosh, Sarah Records favourites Heavenly and now Tender Trap, Amelia has superb taste in indiepop. You can expect a girl group heavy set from her between 10:30pm and midnight.
We’ll also be playing lots of the bands who are playing Indietracks Festival the following weekend. So you can expect to be dancing to the likes of Edwyn Collins, The Hidden Cameras, Help Stamp Out Loneliness, Pocketbooks, The Vaselines, Butcher Boy and many more!
Entry is £3 for members and £5 for non-members. Feel free to post your song requests on the Facebook event.

Simon’s poetry opened up the world of Philip Larkin, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath to us so we’re overjoyed to have him DJ at the club. He promises as mix of post-punk and new wave music in his DJ set.
It’s also our second birthday and entry remains free before 10pm. Afterwards it’s £3 for members and £5 for non-members. You can sign up as a member for absolutely nothing and we’ll give you your own personalised membership card.
