Fancy a night of Notts R&B, Funk, Soul, and a sprinkling of Indie, all for charity? Nice one – cos Music of the Night has you sorted this Monday. Raising money for Nightline, at Rough Trade. You’ve got everything from the beefy Arctic Monkey-esque badaddery in THE AVION, through to the super slick, soulful, almost JT-esque sounds of JAMES LETTA. And what else ya gonna do on a Monday, ay? So, go help charity, have a wiggle, and enjoy your Monday – that’s what they’re for, init.

How’d ya fancy some funky retro vibes, supplied by dudes in full on lucha libre wrestling masks… on Broad Street? Sound good? Of course it does – it sounds fucking amazing – and that’s exactly what you can expect from REVENGE OF CALCULON’s single launch at Rough Trade this Saturday. They’ve teamed up with the beatbox magician / word wizard that is MOTORMOUF on a single, and they’re putting on a night together to celebrate the launch. It will be mental, in the best way. Come thruuuu.

The jangly-geniuses in SUNDAZE have a new single ready for your eardrums, and to celebrate – they’re throwing a sunny lil shindig down at Rough Trade.

The single ‘Mirror Ball’ – which – was worked on by fucking Darwin Deez, is a happy, ear-pleasing jangly (yes we will use that word a lot) Indie piece of bliss. And it’s off an upcoming EP, full of similarly blissful pieces of janglyness. So, why don’t ya head down and jangle ya bits about? That is not meant to sound as dodge as it does.

Support comes from MOON and POINTS OF VIEW. The former making Shoe-Gazey-ish goodness with a Poppy shine, and the latter, the latest project of CAMERON SINCLAIR HARRIS, this time a lot more Punk-y, but still w/ that indie sheen that we love Cam for.
