We’ve got a fantastic line-up on offer for this one. We’re not just saying it because it’s our own night but each one of these acts is a joy to behold live (we’ve done this with our very eyes) and we’re chuffed that we’ve finally got them together on one stage.
Starting the night at around 8-ish will be the quirky, unique sound of ROXY RAWSON, an ex-Hitchinite who has played and sung the world around with her anti-folk acoustic style. This is no middle-of-the-road balladeering though, as Roxy with her backing band exhibit a truly experimental style reminiscent of artists such as Joanna Newsom or Regina Spector.
We’re very proud to bring back GIDEON CONN and his band to Hitchin once more. One of the few true eccentrics working in the UK music scene today, expect to hear insomniac raps, paeans to fishmongers and acappellas about electric pylons. Providing one of the most exhilarating performances at ROTW last year as causing quite a stir at the Isle Of Wight Bestival, this is a unique and intense performer. A modern day Jonathan Richman with a funky hip-hop bent.
Headlining the night will be very special guests NEW TOWN CENTRES. Locals will be familiar with their upbeat post-punk style, but those who aren’t are in for a real treat. A powerhouse of talent, New Town Centres combine the lyrical witticisms of Pulp with the jerky funk of the Talking Heads and a quaint ’60s cool exhibited by their identical shop-dummy apparel. Not to be missed by anyone, ever.
Of course, ROGUE events aren’t just about the bands. Taking us from 11pm to 2am will be a whole host of DJ talent, spinning round, mashing up and slamming down everything from 80s synth pop to heavy metal jams, hip hop mixmastery to drum’n'bass mayhem. There’ll hopefully be something for everyone here, so why not buy your granny a ticket while you’re at it?
We are also pleased to announce the return of the GoAwayComeBack crew who will be helping out with their wicked visual duties and live drawing. And watch out for Barry Hobbs, the man from PhArt, who will be compiling another Rogue’s Gallery piece for the Facebook group.
