SHRAG GIG NIGHT ON TUES 15TH NOV

We’ve got the brilliant Shrag playing at The Lexington on Tuesday 15th November! You can buy your tickets now at WeGotTickets.

The band will be playing new material from their forthcoming third album tentatively titled Canines, scheduled to be released in the Spring on Where It’s At Is Where You Are and Fortuna Pop!

Shrag put out one of our favourite LPs last year and we’ve been working hard on putting on this line-up for a long time so we’re delighted it’s all come together.

Support comes from Pocketbooks who released their second album Carousel yesterday so you can expect plenty of new songs from them. Completing the bill are Fever Dream who are earning rave reviews.

You can find out more on our gigs section and also on Facebook where you can invite your friends.

DARREN HAYMAN GIG NIGTHS ON TUES 18TH OCT & WED 19TH OCT

On the first night, Darren will be joined by The Wave Pictures’ David Tattersall and The Understudies who are playing acoustically.

Then on the second evening he will be supported by Standard Fare’s Emma Kupa and former Hefner man Jack Hayter who will also be playing unplugged.
