An album launch, a single launch, and loud loud guitars. Now that it’s above 10 degrees, ya got no excuse to not get out and gig it up. x


TASH BIRD, bosshuman of the heart-wrenching, but somehow soul-soothing ballad, is back with a new beauty of a song – ‘Reminded’, and to celebrate she’s gone on a mini tour, with of course the most imp date in Notts (obvs). Specifically at Rescue Rooms.

As it’s part of Acoustic Rooms, there’s also a bunch of awesome songwriters from across 0115 taking to the mic. Specifically who, is tbc, but considering Saint Raymond, Amber Run and some Bugg dude all played early gigs here, it’s fair to say it’ll be a pretty vibey lineup.

A HUNDRED CROWDS are a really bloody good Metalcore band that mix… well, everything that’s good about the genre, and pack it into one very tight package (oi oi). Mad riffs, topped off with some super slick melodies that you’ll definitely be singing in the shower the following morning (be proud I didn’t make a package joke… oh wait).

CROSSLIGHT, the six-piece, female-fronted collection of Rock goodness are also on the lineup. Big driving guitars, a mega powerful vocal, and just like AHC, bloody catchy choruses too. Tasty.

I, The Mountain from Derby, and Deliverer from Lincoln are also playing.

A whisky fuelled, Bluesy Americana concoction of goodness, via Beeston. RYAN FARMER is finally releasing his debut album, and to celebrate he’s throwing a proper lil ramshackle down at The Running Horse. Foot stomping, spirit chugging, ear-pleasing pleasure, packed into that intimate space, it’ll be reyt special.

Supporting is BILL KERRY III. A human, who makes sounds not too dissimilar to mr Famer. So basically you’ve got a night that can transport you to the South coast of America, and all ya have to do is catch a NCT bus.

Banjo Jen from Sheffield is also playing.
