Beavertown Brewery continue their monthly, free entry Sunday night bash in the most iconic small venue in Central London – The Social.
On 8th October they’ll be putting on a lineup of 3 properly great new bands every month, but not just that, punters will get a complementary can of beer on entry, discounted pints at the bar all night, the chance to win Beavertown merch, and wicked tunes from the UKs latest and greatest new bands. Nothing to snort at if you ask us!
Make the weekend last that little bit longer and make your way to central London for the Beavertown Social. 8th October features performances by Longheads, Absolutely Anytime and Better Joy. Go on then, see you there?
Longheads are a five piece psych rock band. Originally hailing from Norfolk the band who are Sam Mitchell (bass & vocals), Al Bishop (guitar), Nick Oakes (drums), Benjamin Reeve (guitar & vocals) and Mitchell Corrigan (synths) are now based in South London where a few of the members live in the guardianship scheme occupying various sites and spaces across London.
This is where they recorded their latest EP ‘Mars doesn’t feel like home anymore’ which was received well by fans and critics alike.
The five tracks have been summed up perfectly by The Obelisk who say it’s, “31 minutes of space-faring lysergic adventures, immersive enough to ensnare tired, older acid freaks and fresh and progressive enough in its delivery to draw next-generation let’s-go-hiking-in-the-cosmos types as well.”
Longheads are building a name for themselves as an impressive live act and recently played their Desertfest debut, as well as supporting the likes of King Buffalo and Slift.
‘Absolutely Anytime’ was born in Kentish Town in 2022 and have arrived with a hectic new show consisting of a loud sound that mixes fierce Indie-rock, dance & punk elements. The project is a 6 piece ensemble including front man ‘Sam Stone’, ‘Redley Flowerdew’ (Guitar & vocals), ‘India Fraser-Attewell’ (Bass), ‘Ella Grace’ (Synth/Sax), ‘Conrad Hribernik (Guitar) & Anoushka Zena (Drums).
A deft fusion of classic and contemporary influences, Better Joy’s irresistible indie- pop celebrates the tensions between opposing states. Introversion and extroversion, complexity and simplicity, the literal and the metaphorical are all polarities put under the microscope by the Manchester-based newcomers on the forthcoming debut single, “Hard To Love”. And this is more than just a heady introduction to the enigmatic front-woman -led band – it’s a compelling addition to the rich musical legacy of her home city.
