Tokyo Taboo -
London duo, Tokyo Taboo, are back! Fresh out of their LA studio TT are ready to showcase what they have been working on this past year. This night celebrates the release of their first single from their much-awaited second album. The new release No Pleasure Only Pain is written about what Dolly describes as ‘raw animal attraction’ and ‘pain and pleasure being not just similar but interchangeable.’ Expect the usual TT fiery, high energy onstage performance and out-there visuals to seduce and entrance you. A celebration not to be missed!

Thunder On The Left -
Thunder On The Left are an East-London based two-piece who play angst-driven Alt-Rock powered by a shared grievance with political and social corruption. 
With powerhouse virtuoso Carla on guitar and vocals, the band has an intimidating presence coupled with lyrical fury and manic riff-based guitar. 
Following the band's recent split with their previous drummer, Adam (former sick AF Bassist) has now taken up the mantle of sticks-man, bringing the same intensity and fury to the kit he previously brought to Bass. As per their known and signature defiant nature, TOTL are no longer playing any songs off their February release, National Insecurity. 
This two-piece incarnation of Thunder On The Left is rawer, heavier, and more aggressive than ever before. Anyone who has witnessed their live show previously will know this statement is not to be taken lightly.

Bugeye -
Bugeye are a disco punk band residing in the birth place of punk, Croydon. 
2018 have seen the band making waves with a sell-out dates on their UK tour and breaking into national radio with plays from BBC Introducing, Gary Crowley, Radio X, John Kennedy and 6 Music, Amy Lame. And winning glittering reviews from the likes of Louder Than War, Team Rock, Gig Slutz, Little Indie Blogs, to name but a few.
Packing shows with their disco fuelled, high energy punk, fronted by East London born, Angela Martin. The band are making a reputation for themselves as one of the UKs must see bands on the live circuit. With beats that command you to dance, soaring vocals and more hooks than a hooky thing, it’s easy to see why the bands popularity is growing. With songs about dystopian realities, politics and love, imagine Blondie, Pixies and Donna Summer in a blender and you’ll find that Bugeye sound.

HAWXX are Anna, Hannah, Jess and Iman. We’re based in London and we’re into things like funny voices, feminism, booze, Led Zeppelin, Royal Blood and Skunk Anansie. 
HAWXX make heavy rock music about getting sacked from your job, the deterioration of the NHS, how love can be a mighty bitch, and giving the finger to institutionalised religion.
Expect phat grooves, catchy lyrics, soaring guitar riffs, intricate harmonies and walls of sound to break down barriers and bring people together.

Bled The Fifth -
A stylistically unique rock band from Essex, the five members of Bled The Fifth have been been performing and playing in sync as if they’d been together their entire musical careers. Throughout the course of the band’s union, they have won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life. The five piece are influenced by an array of artists of which their unique sound is born.
