With live bands and alternative DJ sets, you better be ready for an awesome night of indie and alternative madness!

We have two awesome bands at LEiSURE this month taking in a wide range of indie and alternative genres.

The Baskervilles
The Baskervilles are a 4 piece British Rock band hailing from Ipswich, Suffolk. The Baskervilles – Delivering a jet black prognosis of twenty something life through a blend of raw energy, hip-hop influenced grooves and the syncopated grind of 8 bit guitar. Drawing influences from Rock, Indie and hip-hop, The Baskervilles are for people who enjoy the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, Biffy Clyro, The Libertines, The Amazons, Royal Blood, Two Door Cinema Club and Catfish and the Bottlemen.

The Baskervilles first release of the year, ‘Death of a Pop Song’, received an exclusive pre-release through BBC Introducing Suffolk and has had some glorious reviews.

London-based NOVACUB, the side project of Bloc Party guitarist Russell and friends, have been crafting indie pop-rock and are now ready to start sharing with the world, having recently recorded with renowned producer Steve Osborne (New Order, U2, Placebo, Elbow, etc).

Before, in between and after the bands, LEiSURE DJs treat you to the greatest in indie and alternative anthems until 2am!

Add in to that FREE LEiSURE merch giveaways, exclusive cocktails, monthly drinks deals and FREE ENTRY and you, my friends, have yourselves a Friday night to remember.
