Indie favourites, Bombay Bicycle Club are hitting the decks for us this June for a school’s out party, with a toe tapping set of Indie and disco favourites to keep you on the dance floor all evening.
The band are taking it easy at the moment after one hell of a 2014!
Their fourth and latest album was their first to reach number one in the UK album chart and even bagged them a nomination for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize.
They were also on the road for an extensive world tour, including a huge number of festival appearances. Bombay Bicycle Club also played their biggest show to date – at London’s Earl’s Court – them the final band to ever play that legendary venue.
With a year like that, you can forgive them for wanting to take it easier right now,, with only a handful of festival performances booked for this year. This will be a rare opportunity to catch them on stage in 2015.
This stage will be shared with a specially selected bill of emerging live acts to get you warmed up for Bombay’s big bash.
18+ event. Doors 6pm. Party until 3am! £12 Entry.
£10 advance via http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/
Free entry! On a Tuesday night this month (26 May) because of the bank holiday, we’ll be Upstairs at 7.30pm.
Join us to watch Wayne Wang’s film adaptation of Amy Tan’s bestselling book The Joy Luck Club (1993).
Four women, all originally from China and now living in San Francisco, meet up regularly to play mahjong and chat.
They all have daughters, and the film examines the friendships and family relationships between all the women in the film.

Full Line Up: Short Stories, The Dirty Blonds, Homeless Billionaires, The Watermelons
Headlining this show is Short Stories.
Hailing from London’s trendy East End, this Indie/Rock trio describe themselves as The Jam meets early Killers with a dark twist. Their short, emotive songs combine meaningful lyrics with powerful melodies and plenty of rock and roll to go round. This sound has bagged the band slots on the stages of some of the most well renowned underground venues on the London scene including The Underbelly, Proud Camden and 93 Feet East.
Joining them is local South East London lads, The Dirty Blonds. Despite only forming last November, this band are already gaining momentum on the London scene. The psychedelic rock quartet have already bagged a number of headline slots across the Capital, at venues such as The Fiddler’s Elbow, The Workshop and The Good Ship.
Also joining us is another East London band, Homeless Billionaires. Forming at the end of 2013, this duo’s sound has evolved from straight up funk, to funk with a rocky, grungy edge. Despite being a two piece, they make an awful lot of noise, that has been delighting crowds around London at venues like the super cool Sebright Arms.
We’re also joined by Brighton boys, The Watermelons. This quartet play super cool Indie Pop and are currently in the studio recording new material after a packed year in 2014. The band played all over the shop last year including a number of festival slots at Victorious Festival, Redfest and Jamie Oliver’s Big Festival and can count Tom Odell and Blur’s Alex James among their fans.
