TOMORROW (MONDAY) NIGHT
BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS
THE DISPLACEMENTS W/ SPECIAL GUESTS AND GUEST DJS
Introducing The Displacements, a young band from Leicester with big ideas. They formed a few years ago, Andy, Nick, Schwill and Bone – mates and brothers picking up instruments and learning to play them together in the front room of their house.
The displacements honed their talents playing free gigs in local pubs and getting all of their mates rammed in. They then started touring and playing gigs all over the country travelling in the backs of vans and big red trucks.
The lads spent many nights writing songs in their hometown, inspired by the bands they loved, the girls they liked, the things they’ve seen and the nights out they’ve had.
Their style has been likened to The Who, a Hamburg era Beatles, The Kinks and even Scouse Horror! Or as one reviewer put it: Think Motown meets the Clash after a pint with circa 1966 Mick n Keef along the way"
They then started running their own club night in Leicester, each one they put on sold out and a real buzz started. After a riotous set at the summer sundae festival, plays on steve lamacq, a manager that goes by the name of Justin, lots of gigs, drinks and songs, they started to receive a lot of industry and A & R attention.
While every band shows promise... this band are already tipped to be the next big thing and this will be an intimate opportunity to see them before anyone else knows about it...
