Since 2004, The Old Blue last has been bringing audiences the best forward-thinking bands and DJs seven nights a week. A go to venue within the industry for secret showcases and having played host to some of the biggest names around including Charli XCX, Lily Allen and Kate Nash. Once a brothel and a haunt for Shakespeare, the venue is now owned by Vice UK and is a hot spot for the best in the emerging indie scene.
The Ilfords are a raucous, ‘characterful’, unsigned alt/indie rock outfit out of Ilford Road, Newcastle, with a sound drawing comparisons to Arctic Monkeys, Foals, the Maccabees and Palace. They hit the Newcastle music scene hard at an early age, subjecting countless Tyneside crowds to their high-energy alt-rock formula from 2012 to 2017, but then life forced the boys apart. Now, after a long hiatus, the Ilfords are reemerging.
Having sold out show after show on their 2022 UK tour, they’re quickly becoming hot property once again. Expect crunch, energy and sh*t hair in spades, and as good a live show as you’ll see (at least a day or two either side, depending on who else you see and when).
Independent five piece rock band from West London, with a sound spanning from indie to hard rock. Inspired by artists such as U2, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon and more.
