The Smyths play 'Hatful of Hollow' (+Feeling Gloomy ?)

The Smyths are back! After selling out the O2 Academy Islington in January, the UK's top The Smiths tribute act play a special show at 229 Venue where they'll bring to life the seminal Hatful of Hollow album.

This celebration of the 30th anniversary of it's release will see The Smyths playing all the tunes from the record. The original album took in BBC studio recordings and two singles plus b-sides and is considered a classic by many. Expect to hear: Back to the Old House, This Charming Man, Still Ill, Accept Yourself, Hand in Glove, Girl Afraid, How Soon is Now, These Things Take Time and many more.

The gig will finish at 11pm and will be followed by Feeling Gloomy and Old School Indie club night spinning more Smiths and other indie hits until 3am

Tickets on sale now - https://www.fatsoma.com/events/100754/

PLEASE NOTE: 229 is a smaller venue than O2 Academy Islington, so advance tickets are recommended as this WILL sell out!

    Hiya, anyone here actually seen these guys play?. I'm just wondering if I should shell out £14 (inc. booking fee) to watch a Smiths tribute band. thanks

      May 7, 2014

    • jay

      ...then. This venue, split into two rooms, is fairly large, so are people meeting in one specific spot? tks.
