‘East London's premier music night’
Kate O'Flaherty. NME
* * *
Indie / Rock / Pop
"This band really does have everything. Image, presence and crucially the songs to make them the next NME poster boys."
Daniel Garrett, BBC Music
"It looks like, within our own very town (London) The Cavaliers are going to be doing things you should be paying attention too."
Sarah Darling, XFM
* * *
Indie / Punk / Pop Punk
“These guys are pure Mod and you love them all the more for it”
The Supernovas “interest in politics shows in their songs, in best Clash tradition pointing out what's wrong with the world. But the Clash isn't their only influence. The Buzzcocks and The Jam can also clearly be detected in their speedy indie rock, that borders more on old school punk than your usual London indie mush at the moment”
Check out the video for ‘Ace Face’ on www.myspace.com/broccolimusic

Rock / Indie / Alternative
“With guitars this distinct and melodies this poppy, Broadcasts! could make the most club-footed among us pogo till dawn on the dance floor.”
BBC Radio London (Gary Crowley)
“The most promising and exciting act to emerge in recent years. Combining sweet indie melodies with BIG rock chorus’s, Broadcasts! are bound to be Britain’s next big thing”
Check out The Broadcasts video for 'Shortcuts' below, I can assure you once you’ve seen it you won’t want to miss the gig, I keep waking up every night with the sweats screaming “SHORTCUTS”.
* * *
Indie / Pop / Electro
Having received radio air play from BBC6 radio plus Toast on Fire in hamburg for their song ‘Shake’ this band is clearly making music worthy of the ears of the masses.
Get down early to see this Indie, Electo Pop trio kick off what promoises to be a gig full of ‘total’ musicians.

Also we have a debut on the decks from the Broccoli Kidz so come down and see some magical musical mayhem and say for ever more that ‘I saw the Broccoli DJ debut’, your grandkids are gonna wanna hear it.
If you’ve got any requests then bung them on send them over to email@example.com and we’ll see what we can do.
If you’re in a band send us your mp3 files or demos to broccolimusic.co.uk coz we’ll be putting some class unsigned/new music into the set.
"Broccoli Music's Indiesexual's the potential home to peri-peri hot unsigned acts. It's understated and DJs provide a musical backdrop of everything from cutting edge electro to retro pop, as numerous bands infiltrate this monthly unsigned showcase… A crowd so hip, it's the doctors' donation source for or hip replacements* and ciders and vodka mixers so nice and cheap for one can get drunk to… songs that I thought would only be played either from my mother's 60s record collection or my sister's rave phase. It was pleasant. It was cool. But most of all, it was damned chilled"
