An exciting week for local music as a number of bands who have been keeping a low profile re-surface for a few shows as well as the chance to hopefully hear some brand new material off forthcoming local albums. It’s going to be a busy week!
Transmit: Silhouette – Stiff Kitten – Wednesday 5th June 2013
Another Wednesday means another Transmit gig, this week they have Shauna Tohill’s Silhouette. Their single ‘Can’t Keep Up’ was ever present over TV and radio over the last year or so and it led to high profile support slots with the likes of Blondie, One Republic and in the summer Jake Bugg. Support on the evening comes from Runaway Go and Rocket Propelled Gorillas!
Entry is £5 on the door or you could try winning a pair of tickets in our competition – Transmit: Silhouette Ticket Competition!
Lafaro – Limelight 2 – Thursday 6th June 2013
Local riff merchants Lafaro make a very welcome return to the live scene with a headline performance in the Limelight 2. Bring your ear plugs and sharpen those elbows as if there set is anything like that of Pigstock 2012 there’ll be moshpits a plenty. Support comes from the similarly raucous Hornets.
Tickets are £6 and are only available from the door!
