It's a special party night at the Albert with two great live acts, a host of DJs and a special birthday celebration for the hip-shaking Ms Kitschenette from 60s dance troupe, The Actionettes.
TWO GREAT LIVE ACTS!
With his 'Do The Indie Kid' single gaining rave reviews and BBC airplay and a headline slot at the Indietracks booked for the summer, we're honoured to welcome Mark to the Albert.

"MJ Hibbett should be a British institution...unaffected, unpretentious, funny and stupidly entertaining" Word magazine
"one of 2006's most worthwhile albums" Artrocker
"The Wedding Present meets Half Man Half Biscuit ...wonderful and infectious ...a joyful noise" Amazon
THE BOYCOTT COCA-COLA EXPERIENCE
Drier than last week's ciabatta with a devilishly witty set, TBCCE will draw you in and take you strange places. We love them.
"Caustic, funny, surreal and mundane....one of the best singer-songwriters around today" Resonance FM
