A word about our listings

A guide for Customers

These days artists and bands tend to book their tours months in advance. In order to give you the best notice of up and coming shows we list events once they have been confirmed by the band or their management.

The downside of this is that dates can change due to unforeseen circumstances, sometimes at very short notice. We do our best to ensure that this site is kept as up to date as is possible, with updates happening at least once a week.

Therefore to avoid disappointment we recommend that you check these listing prior to setting out for your show especially if you are travelling any distance.

Cassidy Paris
£12.00adv £15.00door
Doors 8:00pm
Australian rocker Cassidy Paris has a very bright future ahead of her. Raised on classic hard rock and inspired by female rockers such as Lzzy Hale, Joan Jett, Pink, Pat Benatar & Avril Lavigne, the fiercely determined young woman is on a mission to inspire a new generation of younger fans to not only listen to Rock ‘n’ Roll, but pick up a guitar instead of a phone.

At just 21 years old, Cassidy has released two sold out eps – “Broken Hearted” & “Flirt”, and her first full length solo record "New Sensation" via Frontiers Music Srl.

At the age of 11, Cassidy met singer songwriter Paul Laine (ex Danger Danger, The Defiants), who developed a unique mentoring role. Paul took Cassidy under his wing to help develop her as an artist and songwriter, collaborating with her in songwriting and producing her music.

From early on, Cassidy has wanted to deliver a strong message through her music. In 2018, she released the song "Stand", a heartfelt song about ‘standing up for yourself’ as a young woman.

Cassidy has built up a strong connection with her growing worldwide fanbase that has already seen her perform in America, U.K. and Japan. Her talents have not gone unnoticed by one of the major guitar giants Fender, lending their support by joining forces with Cassidy to bring her on as an endorsee of Fender Squier Guitars.

In 2023, Cassidy became the youngest artist to ever sign a record deal with Frontiers Music SRL. She released her debut album "New Sensation" in December to rave reviews, with many including the debut in their Top 10 Albums Of The Year.
Cassidy launched the album by touring the UK for a second time to packed rooms at WinterStorm Scotland, Planet Rockstock in Wales and a bunch of club dates in England.

Cassidy Paris = the next generation of ROCK!

Misplaced Neighbourhood - a tribute to Marillion
£15.00adv £18.00door
Doors 7:30pm
On September 27th 2002, at 12:39pm, Jan Egil 'Octo' Overkil asked the musicians on the forums of VG, Norway's largest newspaper, if anyone was interested in forming a Marillion tribute band, and Misplaced Neighbourhood was swiftly born. Named in homage to Marillion's biggest-selling album, with a nod to the fact that bassist, Geir Amundsen, lives seven hours away from drummer Octo, and guitarist Orjan Risa Svensen and keyboard player Jan Magne Bjelland are similarly distant from each member of the rhythm section, the band became even more Misplaced with the addition of British vocalist, Rich Harding, initially as a dep, in 2005. Having been performing together now for two decades, their live reputation (check out the tracks from their 2009 DVD on their YouTube channel) is such that Marillion fanclub, The Web Scandinavia, have twice booked them to play pre- and post-shows for Marillion themselves in Oslo, and Marillion's own guitarist, Steve Rothery, has performed with the Neighbours on multiple occasions. Focusing mainly on the much-loved era when Marillion were fronted by larger-than-life Scotsman, Fish, and bound by their mutual affection for both Marillion and Monty Python, keep a sharp ear out for their regular but unpredictable Confuse-A-Crowd feature, which can range from an unexpected segue to playing the entirety of one song in the middle of a verse of another. This is your one and only opportunity to catch them in the UK, and they promise that there will be no repetition of the unfortunate events of 793 AD.

STEVIE JONES & THE WILDFIRES New Album Soft Release + Guests

At this special event they release their 4th album ‘Getting There’ which again was recorded at Deadline Studios with producer Adam Ellis. It takes them in a slightly new introspective songwriting direction covering romance, heartbreak, anxiety and recovery and includes two covers by The Waterboys and City and Colour. It will be an exclusive chance to hear the new material performed live and get hold of CD copies of the 9 track album which won’t be available for streaming until the autumn.

A brand new Northants indie rock outfit featuring ex members of 90s legends Wishplants and Solarise debuting exciting new material.

Benn Hartmann has been a regular performer on the local music scene for some time. He has written songs for a host of artists as well as establishing a name as a solo artist and has a number of releases now available on Bandcamp, receiving high praise from BBC Radio Leicester. He will be joined at this event by his fiancée Harriet Carter on backing vocals for an original set.

In his own words “43 year old father who thinks he’s going to be a rock star. It sounds like David Gray and Kelly Jones got drunk in Bon Ivers’ studio and made an album about boyhood dreams”. A formidable local singer songwriter with a host of cracking songs and real life stories. We look forward to him opening the gig.
