A spoooooky night of fun with killer live acts, dancing girls and more!
It's going to be a ghoulish night of fun with the incredible KIDS LOVE LIES headlining, plus the fiendishly brilliant, the excellent HEARTS! ATTACK and the wonderful go-go dancing ACTIONETTES. Expect a dark mass of bone rattling DJs onboard, plus videos and more.
KIDS LOVE LIES
They've already stormed this year's Radio 1's Big Weekend and The Great Escape festivals, notched up airplay on BBC 6 and BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, Nick Grimshaw, and Steve Lamacq shows, and have just got Artrocker's Single Of The Month award!
Sounding like a brilliant clash of Bow Wow Wow, Kate Nash and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the band mix relentless, frenetic guitars and crashing percussion with riot grrrl attitude. We love them!
"fine power pop packed full of clever lyrics and hooks - surely ones to watch." The Times
"Absolutely brilliant" BBC6 Music
"I blooming loved it! 10/10 " Maps Magazine
"...rush of Fight Like Apes/Pretty Girls Make Graves-style post-hardcore sweetness" NMEWikipedia page
Unfortunately, the band have had to cancel at short notice after the departure of their bass player
A ballroom blitzkrieg of shimmying, sparkling, synchronised routines from this all-girl dance troupe, kicking their shiny white boots to 60s girl group classics, serving up a special spooky Halloween twist. As seen on Charlie Brooker's TV show and BBC2's Culture Show, these stars of Ladyfest 2008 are not to be missed!
"With each shake of the hips, the smiles get wider..." The Independent
A raw blend of raucous bedroom lo-fi guitar pop from Boston USA, like having The Raincoats and early Sonic Youth jamming in your bedroom.
"DIY mentalists making a hideously amateur noise, which somehow wins you over" - Artrocker Magazine
"a cracking piece of lo-fi jangle pop...genuinely excited by this guys" Single of the week - The Music Fix
"hugely infectious tunes break free from the skittering mess" - Song by Toad
"very rough and jangly, but with a fantastic energy and some great tunes" - Eardrums
Original photos, old footage, pop 45 sleeves, and more.
PLUS A SPINNING PLATTER OF DJS!
We'll also have a full crew of hard-drinking Offline regulars throwing down a top selection of tunes including:
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills & Liberace in a floor stomping package proving that drinking'n'DJing can be a perilous trade.
NIPSLA (Falling over studios)
Packing more pop than a Rice Krispies factory, Nipsla's DJ bag is a veritable jumble sale of joy, overflowing with indie, dance, electro and party tunes.
LANG & LOPEZ (The Actionettes)
A veritable platter splatter of 50s, 60s, Motown and more vital tunes from the Actionettes' very own Glamour Queens of Vintage Vinyl.
BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul)
More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats. He's going to be in his element tonight too.
