Upcoming Events in Colchester

Pet Needs EP Launch
Oct 27 all-day
Pet Needs EP Launch

PET NEEDS release their debut EP at a deafening and sweaty V Bar in March of this year and since have been smashing sets throughout the UK with their explosive performances of fractured anthems.

‘Everything But Your Balance’ is PET NEEDS’ massive second EP. Seven blistering tracks in under 17 minutes. It’s beautifully destructive.

Bring appropriate footwear. Bring a towel.

Gaffa Tape Sandy are insane. Sharp lyrics, cutting guitars and an incredibly knack for melody and delivery, we are so, so excited to have them on the bill.

Their first single ‘Smart Dressed Guy’ was released in February 2016 to critical acclaim, airplay and support from BBC Introducing in Suffolk, and high-profile supports for Buzzcocks, Idles and SuperGlu.

Succeeding that their debut EP ‘Spring Killing’ was released in April 2017, gaining radio play from both Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) and Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 6Music), and leading to them performing on this years BBC Introducing Stage at GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL!

RAD PITT were the heaviest band at Latitude 2017. They are a force. And they work hard.

With already two albums under their belts, RAD PITT smash sets throughout the region. This isn’t a spectator sport; this is a fully-immersive, mind-splitting experience.

Free entry from 5pm and bands start at 9!
