Shows / Clubs

We had a great time with The Wombats and Skinny Lister last week. Highlights of most of the shows we do are on our youtube page.

As we recover from Record Store Day, we have shows only on Thursday. But we're cramming them in then!! Man Overboard play in-store ahead of their gig that night with Moose Blood at the Cocks. Later that night, Hot Chip DJs The Hippodrome, while Weezer tribue band Geezer play room 2 of New Slang.

There's doubt about the long-term future of the venues that have been housing New Slang. jt's thoughts are on the Banquet tumblr and there's a youtube vid at http://youtu.be/S38YEKRra2c - share if you care.

New gigs are announced every week. Don't miss out on further announcements. Add yourself to the Banquet Shows Group on Facebook and keep an eye on @banquetrecords on Twitter and the fan page on Facebook
