Beat The Streets 24′ – Part 1

 This year we’re lucky enough to be a part of Beat The Streets and we’ve got a stacked lineup in both the upstairs venue and bar so stick around on the day and check out some of Nottingham’s finest talent. 

 Kicking off things upstairs is Penny Moon, blending atmospheric shoegaze sensibilities with strong pop-rock songwriting. These lot are bursting with talent and we’ve been lucky enough to have had them play here several times before so if you didn’t catch them then, now’s your chance! Following on is a new Nottingham band in a slightly similar vein, Sex Toy Vending Machine, have been building up their live set over the course of last year and hit our stage for the first time at Backyard Festival. Taking indie-rock and layering it with shoegaze based melodies and effects they’re well worth sticking around for.

 Things switch up a bit from 3PM with Vandal Savage taking stage. Well versed on the Nottingham rap circuit, his latest single Ginsu set the benchmark for intricate lyricism and self-produced beats in the city so we’re really looking forward to this one. Immediately afterwards we’ve got Nottingham legend Jimmy Rocket carrying on the showcase of some of Nottingham’s most exciting hip-hop talent. Both of these two will be returning to support Manga Saint Hilare so come down and get a taste of what’s to come.

 Next up is Doncaster based Guest Singer making their Nottingham debut. Fusing dark electronica with new wave guitar hooks, this duo are certainly ones to watch. They’re already building up a great live reputation so catch ‘em whilst they’re on the rise! Shortly afterwards is Notts local Jonny Olley who’s thoughtful, relatable songwriting echoes sounds spanning the likes of Bob Dylan to Jamie T. He’s a real credit to the Nottingham music scene and is definitely onto big things. 

 Bringing the noise later on is Sofftness who’s post-punk sound has seen them play many packed out shows in the city. If you haven’t caught them before now’s the time to do it, just don’t wear your nice shoes because they’ll be bringing the energy. Keeping up the momentum is Rad Pitt who’s hardcore inspired sound and tongue-in-cheek lyrics are bound to work the crowd into a frenzy. Short, snappy and loud. What more do you need on a Sunday?

 Last up is one of the breakthrough Nottingham bands quickly establishing themselves as one of the must-sees in the city. Otala have been playing notable venues up and down the country and following their venture into Europe last year it’s only right that they headline this Sunday. With spoken word vocals that lay atop free-form inspired drums and jangly, oftentimes dissonant guitar riffs these guys have made a real name for themselves and it’s clear why.

 Grab yourself a ticket for Beat The Streets on the 28th January.
