Rogue’s Halloween gig 2011

Shots from ROGUE presents Día de los Muertos – Day Of The Dead Mexican Halloween Party

I know it’s a little(!) late, but here are photos and videos from the Rogue gig back in October last year – missed out on getting any shots of BlackEye due to having to leave early (damn that train schedule). Featuring Mike Fallon + guests, Battery City, The Metatrons and Billy Skins Fifth.

Frog Stupid’s Farewell Party

Hitchin favourites announce their final gig and release.

Local ska-punk group Frog Stupid will be playing their last ever gig at Club 85 in Hitchin on April 14th, at which they will also be releasing their final CD, ‘Lessons In Forgetting Punk Rock’. Since forming back in 2003, Frog Stupid have gathered a strong local following and been a constant crowd-puller, but after nine years together, they feel it’s now time to call it a day, though you’ll still be able to catch the band’s members in the various respective acts they’ve formed which have been keeping them busy in recent years – these include Scream!Shout!Say Nothing!, Spandex Ballet, Arms & The Man and Sons Of Guns. Support comes from Lost Without Cause and Three Bottles Down.

For further info please check out this event page:

Here is the video for the title track of the CD, ‘Lessons In Forgetting Punk Rock’.
