Come along for a night of Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach, Korn, System of a Down, Slipknot etc...
Sunday lunch at The Trent Navigation pub on Meadow Lane! Easily accessible from City Centre or a short walk from West Bridgford. I’ve had a few Sunday dinners here and been impressed each time. Good value for money, huge portion and lovely home-cooked style food. They are updating their website at the moment so no menu to share at the moment unfortunately. My Sunday lunch event at The Botanist has had a lot of interest so same with this one - if you are no longer able to make it please do change your RSVP so someone else can take your spot, as there may be a waiting list. Look forward to seeing you there!
Tickets available for £11 from https://www.alttickets.com/the-howl-the-hum-tickets/nottingham-the-bodega/2019-09-25-19-00 I saw this band last year and LOVED them. They have such a unique energy and it was just a pleasure to see them play. Don’t Shoot the Storm is one of the catchiest songs ever! Description below taken from Spotify... In an age where individuality is key, where bedroom producers and Soundcloud artists can become overnight sensations, The Howl & The Hum were born through collaboration. Brought together in York at the city's open mics, folk nights and close-knit music scene, vocalist Sam Griffiths cherry-picked bass player Bradley Blackwell, guitar player Conor Hirons and drummer Jack Williams to create a band that doesn’t sound like a contemporary rock band. With a magpie mentality they cut their teeth playing in and learning from local bands and busking, with a strong songwriting core and an inventive, progressive view on what place guitar music has in today’s culture. Their inspirations ranging from Leonard Cohen and Phoebe Bridgers to Lizzo and Kendrick Lamar, and have been likened to Massive Attack, Radiohead and Alt-J. With the support of influential tastemakers such as Radio 1's new music legend Huw Stephens, who recently handpicked the band to play on his stage at this year's SXSW and debuted the band’s new single “Hall Of Fame”, The Howl & The Hum have just inked a deal with AWAL/Kobalt. Now the band are heading into summer 2019 with everything in place. Having sold out London's Omeara at the start of the year and toured in support of Welsh wonders Boy Azooga, they're lining up the cogs for their own headline tour later in the year, with more music imminently on the horizon.
Please see below for the write up of the play, taken from the Lace Market Theatre website. Tickets available for £11 at: https://lacemarkettheatre.co.uk/LaceMarketTheatre.dll/Booking?Booking=TSelectItems.waSelectItemsPrompt.TcsWebMenuItem_0.TcsWebTab_0.TcsPerformance_4079138.TcsSection_733 Tickets are for the studio so seating isn’t allocated. You may be able to buy a ticket on the door on the night but I’d recommend getting one in advance. If anyone fancies it we could meet up a bit earlier to get something to eat somewhere in The Lace Market/ Hockley. I’ll post again nearer the time. I know Pitcher and Piano offer 20% off with your theatre ticket! “Sam suggested that I talk to someone. Professionally. That made me so angry. I knew what depression was and I knew I was fine.” You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid”. She finds it hard to be happy. You start a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world, everything worth living for – ice cream, water fights, staying up late to watch TV… You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. As years go by, you grow up, go off to university and fall in love. Perhaps your list of every brilliant thing might even help you. Duncan Macmillan’s unusual play, which debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014, invites the audience to lend their imaginations to the enterprise, as the narrator recounts his childhood experiences of his mother’s depression, and his adult life. This funny, uplifting piece confronts something tough – the realisation that we can’t always make those we love happy.
