Two monster unique gigs this week, plus a chance to explore somethin new. Let’s get ittttttt. x
An incredibly eclectic musical experience, building on a mesh of influences of multiculturalism (try saying that after a few), MUHA have been doing their ting since 2006, bringing funky rhythms, vibey folklore-esque lyrics, and plenty of catchy grooves. Plus, they’re bringing a bunch of Middle Eastern Meze to nibble on too. So, ya know. Way better than watching Emmerdale, init.
Wednesday 7th August
The noisy legends in GREY HAIRS are back w/ a new album, released on Notts’ own Gringo Records, and to celebrate they’re throwing a launch party at Albert’s. Surfy. Angsty. But with a hint of optimism. Even with some of their political commentary. One of Notts’ best live bands – it’s gonna be sick to see these new tunes in all their loud glory.
Supporting are JCDX (yeah, formerly JC DECAUX). Who, in their own right are basically a Notts supergroup made up of Amusement Parks on Fire, Punish the Atom and more. Also full of big, big soundscapes and many many riffs.
Plus one more support TBA.
Friday 9th August
OTHER DAYS OF THE WEEK
Okay – those two sexy gigs above defo deserve your eardrums and pupils – it defo felt like they needed talking about. We confess though – it is a bit of a quiet week this time, ya know – with everyone hanging out of their buttcheeks due to festival season. So, why don’t ya take this chance to check out one of Notts’ many fine Open Mics? Whether that’s Acoustic Rooms on Monday, Six Barrels on a Tuesday or Jam Cafe on a Wednesday. There’s bloody loads around Notts pretty much every day of the week. So get involved. x
Yours in Love of New Music,
