Now onto it's 16th outing, BACKSTREETS is a semi-regular night of music featuring some of London's best bands and DJs spinning classics. Great music to get drunk to on a Friday night!
Tickets are only £5 on the door.
THE BRIDPORT DAGGER
Fresh off tour from supporting our old friends The Rumble Strips, the up-and-coming Dagger are rather tasty and rather unique: a bassless flamencobilly/garage-folk trio, specializing in short, echoey blasts of glorious noise.
'brothel-creepin blues with awesome atmospherics' - NME
'Swinging beats tinged with twangy rockabilly riffs and moody Orbison esque vocals. Haunting and seriously melodic, the drama the Bridport Dagger expels is somehow extremely alluring.' i-D Magazine
THE WINTER OLYMPICS
This is the big one for this now infamous party-rock band from London. They’ll be celebrating the release of their new single ‘Attention All Departments’ on the Office Rocks label and the end of Vancouver 2010 with this very special show for Backstreets. Live, the Olympics are still an unlikely riot: all loose loud guitars, warehouse sized rave keys and lion-lunged love songs about girls, work and spaceships. They play like five IT guys who happen to be hiding The Stooges inside, they sound like a bomb going off inside a tiny radio.
Sounding like a Harley running on Tequila, Motel Tijuana are classic southern rawk and roll with a line-up from around the world and their debauched songs that are the soundtrack to too much tequila and too much late night antics. Expect to be dancing with our cousin and drinking heavily by the end of this set.
Garage/punk/blues from this new London based band; a great way to get a Friday night party started.
