LIVE BANDS:

Girls On Top - Maybe dont invite them round your Mums for tea

GIRLS ON TOP

Three girls, one (by now probably fairly crushed, given their name) guy – all punk group, from Camden’s trashy anti-fashion underworld. This ain’t no mucking about faux-mo pretension bullshit – what we have here is raw, undiluted rock’n’roll ballroom bliss.

Snotty, wild and untethered – their last appearance in Hitchin saw a packed out venue full of mentalists going cocking wild to a molotov cocktail of 80s punk, 70s glam and 60s garage rock.

Look out for their third album, ‘A Taste Of Cyanide’, and check out their MySpace for more sickness.

NEW GROOVE FORMATION

The Bedford eight-piece are in their fourth year of wowing crowds with their unique funked-up brand of frazzled rock.

Mixing funky beats with reggae grooves and dub breaks then adding a pinch of ska, their sole aim is  to get the floor moving and the crowd shaking.

Having played all over the country with such names as Babyshambles, the Dead 60s, Bad Manners, The Beat and a whole host of alternative gods – who knows, maybe NGF will be the next?

Check out www.newgrooveformation.com for more details, or cock an ear toward the MySpace to hear some sounds.

WEIGHTLOSS

If you thought the days of upbeat, horn-driven 2-tone influenced punk were behind us, well so do Weightloss! It never stopped them spitting in the faces of the emo hordes though, and if anything the Hertfordshire septet offer much more to the table than any of the white-belt scenesters or brow-beaten ska punk chancers who dare challenge their thrones as the UK’s number one skacore geezers. Their soon to be released album ‘Our Thoughts Are Just Noise’ sees a band breathing life back into a long-neglected genre with true musicianship, lyrical swagger and ideas aplenty; while their energetic live show is not to be missed.

Check out the Weightloss Myspace to get some ska punk up in your trunk.

LIVE DANCE TROUPE:

The ADDICTION Dancers

ROGUE is proud and honoured to welcome Hertfordshire’s number one all-girl dance troupe who will be performing choreographed and free-style dancing throughout the night.

Check out this video of the Stevenage 12-piece doing their thang:

See www.myspace.com/addictiongirlies for more info.

LIVE DJS

DJ DOG LATIN

DJ DOG LATIN aka DJ Book Shiv aka Charlie Frame is Rogue’s resident beat surgeon and head promoter. Using only a knackered old desktop with software obtained through ill-gotten means, Dog Latin splices and dices beats and melodies from every corner of the musical spectrum. With up to 40 tracks being cut together in the space of an hour, 2ManyDJs with ADHD wouldn’t be a far off comparison.

Download an exclusive, free copy of Dog Latin’s Rogue mix from July 2008 right here!

MAFF

ROGUE’s own bootleg bastard will be mashing up everything from indie treasures to 80s pop gems and many more. He’s been on the Rogue crew as a DJ and promoter since day one and his shows never fail to kick up a storm!

BLONDE JONNY

NEW TO ROGUE, but not to Hitchin’s DJ circuit by any means, Jonny returns to his hometown to cause a house and electro ruckus after making his name in the big smoke. His own night, Camden’s ‘Crossover’ has received rave reviews, being compared to a mini-version of the famous Bugged Out events in London.

DA HUI

DA HUI aka Matt Turner has been a regular face on the local scene for years. The pint-sized turntable terrorist specialises in the tougher side of alt-dance, mixing up breaks, drum’n’bass, trance and techno to provide a floor-shaking climax to the night’s proceedings.

LIVE DRAWING:

CHLOE AND REG aka GOAWAY-COMEBACK are Rogue’s in house visual team. Responsible for the awesome crowd projections at previous nights, they’re now giving you the chance to add your own touch to the way the club looks!

Using a canvas, backlight and camera, they’ll be inviting those of an artistic bent to get their painting hats on and draw a 10-minute creation which will be projected live onto the walls as it takes place.

Contact them on the Live Drawing Facebook group for more details.

All in all we’re expecting a wicked and fun night. Drink offers at the bar, plus FREE SWEETS! You know you don’t wanna miss this one.

Adios

Charlie and the Rogue crew x
