Since opening in 2005, Plug has established itself as one of the top live music and club venues in Sheffield and the North of England. We have had the good fortune to play host to some incredible acts over the years including Arctic Monkeys, The Prodigy, Patti Smith and Lily Allen and remain constant in our quest to bring the very best acts, both old and new alike, to the stage. As a venue, Plug dances perfectly on the tightrope between grandiosity and intimacy, bringing audiences awe-inspiring live and DJ performances in a perfectly proportioned setting.

    Eliza and the Bear w/ Into The Ark & Michael Cassidy

    Tue 16 February at 07:00pm until Tue 16 February 2016 at 10:30pm

    London-based quintet Eliza and the Bear formed in 2011 when songwriters James Kellegher (lead vocals, guitar) and Callie Noakes (vocals, guitar) began writing music together after the collapse of their respective bands. Soon after, they added friends Martin Dukelow (guitar), Chris Brand (bass), and Paul Kevin Jackson (drums) into the fold to complete the lineup, and they began to play live shows around London. Their name raised a few eyebrows among fans when no "Eliza" was to be found in the band's lineup, but they later confirmed the name was in fact taken from a collection of poems by Eleanor Rees that had inspired them. Their upbeat, indie folk music pulled together the romping folk-pop of Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers, while the layered instrumentation took inspiration from the likes of Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene. They released their song "Brother's Boat" digitally before their first single, "Upon the North," appeared in 2013. Later that year they were invited to open for Paramore on their U.K. tour, where they played at a sold-out Wembley Arena. At the beginning of 2014 the outfit were tipped for success by many corners of the U.K. music press and released the single "It Gets Cold" on Capitol Records. ~ Scott Kerr https://www.facebook.com/elizaandthebear/?fref=ts https://twitter.com/elizaandthebear http://www.elizaandthebear.com/

    The Official International Arctic Monkeys Tribute Band from the UK are playing the Arctic Monkeys debut album in full for the first time to celebrate the anniversary of the album release. We'll continue the AM appreciation with an indie disco to beat all club nights! From the release of the Arctic Monkeys first album, ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not', the phenomenon soon swept the UK. Four guys from Wolverhampton realised the Arctic Monkeys would become an arena band and not play smaller venues. Formed in March 2006 from a jamming session, The Antarctic Monkeys took a big chance in which they became a phenomenon in their own right, travelling the UK, playing venues armed only with one album of material. The success has continued and now armed with a setlist of almost 30 songs, the demand for the Antarctic Monkeys is ever growing with tours booked up Worldwide. www.facebook.com/antarcticmonkeys twitter.com/arcticstribband

    Mon 22 February at 07:30pm until Mon 22 February 2016 at 10:30pm

    Some people will call Songs For Our Mothers the most unpleasant album of this year, if not of their entire generation; the work of a bunch of drink and drug wracked nihilist degenerates. Some will say that it is a thrilling statement of disgust, defiance and complete creative independence made by the only rock band in the UK that really counts for anything at all anymore. But it is likely that few who hear it will walk away from the second album by the Fat White Family, released on their own label Without Consent, not caring one way or the other. Some will hail this hair-raising, pulse-quickening and indignant collection of glitterball disco, smacked out psych, glam funk, heart-breaking torch songs and otherworldly slabs of Kraut n’ western as the shot in the arm that independent rock has been ailing after. And a shot in the arm is exactly what this album is. For if modern indie rock, DIY, alt-country - call it what you will - is sick, then the Fat Whites are the pretty nurse with Munchausen’s Syndrome by proxy, pushing down the plunger on the syringe; murdering the bed-ridden patient with a tainted injection right under everyone’s noses. They have witnessed an entire musical scene teetering on the verge of terminal irrelevancy and given it a hard shove void-wards.

    Rock veterans Therapy? have established a long career with their industrial-tinged, metallic sound, finding breakout success with their 1994 album, Troublegum. Formed in 1989 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Therapy? quickly got to work on recording a number of early demos, which caught the attention of the legendary BBC DJ, John Peel, who played their single, Meat Abstract, on his show. Signing with Wiijia Records, the two EPS, Baby Teeth and Pleasure Death found Therapy? a growing number of fans in the UK and these early EPs also gained a US release as Caucasian Psychosis on Touch & Go Records. From thrashy punk roots they developed a darker more intense sound that showed greater sophistication without ever sacrificing their accessibility or mainstream cross over potential.

    In the three short years since she released her debut EP Warrior, Grammy-winning, Top 5 recording artist Foxes, aka Louisa Rose Allen, has become one of the UK’s most exciting pop stars. Now Foxes returns with disco-tinged banger Body Talk, the first track to be lifted from her much anticipated second album. Inspired by moving on from the past and taking control, Body Talk opens the gates for Foxes’ follow up to debut album Glorious - which featured smash hit singles 10 Let Go For Tonight, Holding Onto Heaven and Youth. A sonic leap forward that evidently comes from experience and an artist coming of age, the euphoric grade A-pop single Body Talk will be released on July 24 on Epic/ Sony. Listen to Body Talk here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hS53wbMt-os Southampton-born Foxes, who eschews the lure of the full-on glitzy pop star life in favour of taking the bus around east London and working on her mum's vintage clothing market stall, is ready for the world to hear what she's been working on, "I knew immediately what I wanted with this album, and I was at the reins of it this time” she says. Foxes will play a number of festival dates across the UK this summer, with the Isle of Wight Festival next weekend and British Summer Time with Kylie Minogue at Hyde Park. Stay tuned for her brand new album, set for release later this year. Body Talk is released on Epic/ Sony on July 24

    JAMES ZABIELA needs little introduction. Safe to say he's an absolute demon in the DJ booth. Bringing the words 'using technology' to a whole new level he cuts, layers, splices and samples tracks to within an inch of their lives. Blending grooves seamlessly you'll literally not hear anything else like it. Each set being a unique on the fly remix session. He's smashed Plug every time he's played, and we cannot wait for him to do it all again alongside 2 fellow artists signed to his Born Electric imprint. https://soundcloud.com/jameszabiela http://jameszabiela.com/ https://www.facebook.com/jameszabiela/?fref=ts https://twitter.com/jameszabiela PEDRAM. Signed to Born Electric (Zabiela's label) shows he's got serious talent. Check out 'Nina' for a perfect slice of tech-house heaven.

    Outlines Festival - Roots Manuva, Loyle Carner & More

    Sat 27 February at 02:00pm until Sun 28 February 2016

    We are delighted to announce that the hugely influential UK bass music pioneer Roots Manuva will headline the first ever Outlines Festival, set to take place in Sheffield on Saturday 27th February. Outlines has been put together by the makers of Tramlines and, like its older cousin, will take place across a range of venues in Sheffield City Centre. Venues will range from established spaces like Plug, Queens Social Club, o2 Academy 2 and The Harley to more unusual areas, including the city's roller rink, where festival-goers will have the chance to strap their skates on while the bands play. With his sixth studio album Bleeds out now on Big Dada/Ninja Tune, Roots Manuva will bring his pioneering and genre-defying hip-hop to Outlines' Main Stage at Plug. One of the true originals of British music, Rodney Smith’s influence can be heard across the musical landscape. Now, with Bleeds, he has made his most emotionally affecting and powerful release to date. With production from Four Tet, Switch's new production team, Adrian Sherwood and more, Bleeds also builds on a long career of collaboration, with Roots Manuva having worked with artists from Gorillaz, the Maccabees and Micachu to Dawn Penn, Leftfield and the Cinematic Orchestra. Meanwhile, the genre-spanning lineup for the first ever Outlines will also showcase a host of emerging talent, with a number of exciting new artists - including the likes of Georgia, Loyle Carner, PINS, Oscar and Kagoule - also announced to play. South Londoner Loyle Carner's innovative and introspective hip-hop has seen him tipped as 'one to watch' for 2016. Another highlight comes in the form of multi-instrumentalist, producer and Domino Records signing Georgia, who established herself playing drums for Kwes and Kate Tempest before emerging as an irresistible creative force in her own right, channeling elements of early 00’s grime, dub, post-punk and hip-hop. Post-punk fans, though, will find much to love in Kagoule's warped lyricism, dynamic noise-rock and fuzzed-out harmonies, as the Nottingham trio continue on their path towards DIY notoriety.

    Born and raised in Camden London, 28 year old Charlie began his career as an MC with a radio show on the leading London pirate station, Raw FM before starting to write, produce and record his own records. In 2007 he started capturing his life as an independent British Rap artist on film with his online weekly show 'Being Charlie Sloth.' Combining reportage, guest stars, comedy skits and hidden camera pranks, the show was picked up by World Star Hip Hop and has gone on to become the most viewed weekly online Hip Hop show in the world averaging over 1 million views a week. It has also helped Charlie cement a career in TV Broadcasting presenting shows for Channel 4 and MTV Base. In 2010 Sloth joined the BBC 1XTRA line up with the Friday Hip hop M1X and their Saturday morning show before landing his current prime drive time weekday slot on the station. A few years later (in 2013) he took over Radio 1's legendary Saturday night Hip Hop show from Tim Westwood, positioning him as the new premier tastemaker for hip hop in the UK. Immediately making his mark on the show - which soon became the most listened to radio show on BBC Radio 1Xtra - Sloth imported his seminal 'Fire in the Booth' slot which showcases freestyles from the finest MCs from both sides of the pond. *Over 18's Outlines ticket holders can stay in the venue for free*

    It’s been four years since Jamie Woon released his debut album Mirrorwriting. We can now reveal the first single taken from a soon to be announced new album due for release later in 2015 on new label home, PMR Records. It was Pharrell who introduced Sharpness to the world on his Beats 1 radio show a few weeks ago, followed quickly by his friends and previous collaborators, Disclosure when they took the track into Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show. In the time since Mirrorwriting, Jamie has spent time exploring his writing and recording with new collaborators. His new full-length sees him maintaining the same distinctive Woon sound and thoughtful/crafted songwriting but opting for a live and up-close approach to the rhythm section, in a move away from his previous mostly electronic underpinning.

    Dizzy Lizzy are the most fantastic live tribute act dedicated to one of Rock’s all time legends ‘Phil Lynott’. A long established tribute to THIN LIZZY, since early 1994. Their sound & set-list faithfully recreate that trademark Lizzy sound. Philomena Lynott, states that Dizzy Lizzy are 'the closest to playing my sons music' A sentiment that has rippled throughout the years Dizzy Lizzy do have an amazing sound and resemblance to the classic 70s & 80s rock band. They will take you back in time to relive that magical era with a superb blend of classic foot stomping rock anthems and rock ballads (inc . . The Boys Are Back In Town, Whiskey In the Jar, Emerald, Black Rose, Rosalie, Sarah, Still In Love With You). Many have acknowledged Philomena's statement to be true, Dizzy Lizzy are the closest and most convincing tribute to the real thing. One of the country’s leading and most dynamic tribute acts, they are the only act to have headlined both, the ‘Vibe for Philo’ in Dublin & ‘Remeber Phil & Gary’ event in Holland. Also appearing at many prestigious venues, around Britain, such as the Matthew street festival, O2 Academy Liverppool. Plus other large capacity venues like Butlin's. They have also performed and toured with the original Thin Lizzy guitarist Eric Bell. Eric Bell’s reaction on first seeing the band…’I could only watch three numbers owing to the emotions. The resemblance to Phil and the mannerisms and playing, it was spooky – it made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck…’ They can also be heard on the documentary CD ‘I am just a cowboy’. Although based in the Midlands, Dizzy Lizzy tour extensively throughout the UK and have performed in Europe & as far a field as Los Angeles and Dubai. - Rising Power Tour 2015 ‘We just want to make the walls cave in, and the ceiling collapse!’, remarked the legendary Bon Scott. An ethos that AC/DC themselves have followed throughout their entire career, and an ethos shared by AC/DC UK! The band feature’s one of the most authentic looking Angus’ in the business, and are one of the few acts to feature both Bon Scott, and Brian Johnson performances. AC/DC UK bring their wall of Marshall stacks, and fully firing cannons for a spectacular stage show. The AC/DC trademarks are all there; Angus Young's strip, Gibson and Gretsch guitars, and even Bon Scott's iconic walk through the crowd with Angus on his shoulders. The band rock classics from the entire AC/DC catalogue. From 1976’s High Voltage, up to 2014's Black Ice; You will hear all the hits! Every classic track that launched AC/DC to legendary status is in the set, as well as a few obscure gems for the hardcore fans! AC/DC UK are made up of a team of seasoned pro’s, and play club shows and major festivals alike! Throughout the UK and Europe notable shows include CoverFest (PL), Huntenpop / Paaspop / Grolsch Festival (NL), Mockfest / Tribfest / Mathew Street Festival (UK), as well as historic venues such as the Liverpool Cavern Club, Glasgow ABC, and more. Constantly refining and building their live show, AC/DC UK capture the look, sound, and energy of the real thing! Aptly naming their 2015 stint after the fan favourite number ‘Rising Power’, AC/DC UK are set to firmly establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with.

    Following on from their sold out shows, mosh pits and stage invasions of 2015, Black Honey are heading back out on tour in March. Ending the year on a high saw the band pick up NME Radar Band of the Week, Guardian Band of The Week, DIY’s Class of 2016 and topping it off by being crowned “The Most Blogged Band of 2015” by Hype Machine and BBC 6Music. Huw Stephens and Annie Mac at Radio One premiered their stand out tracks, Madonna, Spinning Wheel and Corrine all of which were repeatedly played across the station. The songs also received a huge response from the blog world amassing over 730,000 plays on Soundcloud and a further 1,250,000+ plays on Spotify. This was swiftly followed up with an extensive run of dates throughout the spring/summer including support slots to The Cribs, Superfood and Mini Mansions and heading in to a jam packed festival season with the band performing across all the city festivals including Live At Leeds, The Great Escape Festival, Dot to Dot Festival and Liverpool Sound City. In July they headed into Holland for a hugely successful set at the Metropolis Festival and over to Croatia for a slot on the same bill as The Vaccines at Croatia Rocks. Other summer highlights included playing on the main stage at Y Not Festival, packed performances at Kendal Calling and Tramlines and finishing off the festival season playing Reading and Leeds on the Festival Republic Stage. Without taking a break the band then went on their first headline tour in October culminating in packed out venues across the countries and sold out shows in London and Brighton. 2016 is already shaping up to be exciting for the band having started out with a run of dates in Holland including impressive performances at Eurosonic Festival and being named in the Top 5 bands of the festival.

It features all the B-sides from the band’s singles along with unreleased bonus material from the No Love Lost studio sessions, giving fans an even deeper insight into the first few steps in The Rifles’ career. The album was remastered at Abbey Road Studios and the band celebrated its release by playing the album in its entirety at Camden’s Electric Ballroom. The Rifles are a band which inspires an inordinate amount of devotion and camaraderie amongst their fans and it’s not hard to see why.

    After a successful 2015, which saw them not only finish up work on their highly anticipated second album, but also complete a mammoth stateside tour alongside No Joy and Sunflower Bean, Brooklyn-based DIIV are set to make a triumphant live return to UK and Europe this spring. Recorded and mixed in various locations around Brooklyn throughout much of 2015, Is the Is Are is a 17-song double-album, intended to work with the moods and themes first explored by vocalist/songwriter Zachary Cole Smith on 2012’s critically acclaimed Oshin, but this time with an added nuance and depth. Dark and honest to a fault, recent singles lifted from Is the Is Are such as Dopamine and Bent (Roi’s Song) have only added to the bands blistering set and Cole Smiths distinct on-stage performance. You can catch DIIV performing tracks from Is the Is Are this March and April, including a sold out date at Heaven in London on March 18th. https://www.facebook.com/diivnyc https://twitter.com/DIIV

    Manchester has a righteous tradition of insisting on being the UK musical capital. But even the most swaggering evangelist for the city would have to admit that the old place has been a bit quiet lately. So with the poise of anybody worthy of claiming the keys to the city, all of that’s about to change. Meet PROSE, organic-acoustic-hip-hop three-piece who are coming for your soul. From the mean(ish) streets of Stretford, via a yellow brick road of sweat, struggle, melody and pummelling beats. They’ve got very big hearts, but you probably wouldn’t like them when they’re angry. PROSE defy genre because in the fiercest way, they are a genre of their own. They take the best of what has come before in the city; the emotional eloquence of Oasis; the street poetry of John Cooper Clarke; the psychedelic ambition of The Stone Roses and the spirit of when New Order looted the NYC gay clubs of the early 80s and invented dance music as we know it. For good measure, they’ll also namecheck Tupac, Hendrix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alanis Morrissette, Nirvana and Queen.

    “Sounding like the love child of Pet Shop Boys and Hot Chip, Their synth-pop sound has been thrilling audiences.” – Notion “April Towers prove they have the energy for it all. Most likely to join Chuvches in the synth revolution” – DIY Magazine “Merging gigantic synthpop glitter with the dark of post-punks like Interpol.” - The Line of Best Fit Following the success of their recent 2015 tour which culminated in a fully sold out show at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms, April Towers announce a 7 date run before the announcement of new recordings to come shortly. The band have been busy in Assault and Battery Studios finishing off arguably their strongest work to date. The band have seen unprecedented support for their singles ‘Arcadia’ and ‘No Corruption’, the latter of which was added to the BBC Introducing playlist. In fact, all April Towers singles have received support at Radio 1 thus far, including previous single ‘A Little Bit of Fear’, which has also featured on the official soundtrack for this year’s EA Sports flagship game ‘FIFA 16’. April Towers consists of Alex Noble (vocals, guitars, keyboards) and Charlie Burley (production, samples, guitars, keyboards). The duo combine intelligent pop hooks reminiscent of Pet Shop Boys and Hot Chip with the electronic nuances of New Order and LCD Soundsystem - creating a synth-pop sound full of vibrancy and immediacy. www.apriltowers.com https://www.facebook.com/apriltowersofficial/?fref=ts https://twitter.com/april_towers

    KANO returns with his most important body of work to date. The 158 track album Made In The Manor was recorded in London in 2015, produced by Fraser T Smith, Rustie, Mele, Mikey J, Blue May, Zeph Ellis and Swifta Beater, and is released by Parlophone on 19th March. “You have to know where you’ve come from in order to know where you’re going”, says the acclaimed British rapper about the release of Made In The Manor. “But I like to take where I’ve come from along with me for the ride.” The first single ‘3 Wheel-Ups’, a muscular club banger features a trio of fiercely talented rappers 8 Kano, Wiley and Giggs 8 going full pelt, egging each other on to even greater lyrical heights. Made In The Manor is as much a love letter to his East End roots as it is an intimate portrayal of inner city England today, with just the merest hint of dark prophecy about what trouble could lie round the corner. Kano, who is never anything other than candid, says: “This is the most honest I’ve ever been on an album. It’s not that I wasn’t being honest before, it’s just that I wasn’t speaking about things this personal before.”

    Seminal figures in musical subcultures can occasionally be outshone by the stars of the scene. While it would surely exist without Roll Deep's Danny Weed and Target, grime wouldn't be grime as we now know it. London-born DJ Target has over 10 years experience in DJing and producing, having played in almost every city across the UK, gaining support and appreciation throughout the country. This recognition has led to him doing shows in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Ibiza, Cyprus, Sweden and Greece, the USA and Egypt. DJ Target was part of the ground-breaking UK garage act, Pay As You Go, producing a top 20 hit with Champagne Dance in 2002. He is now part of one of the UK's best-selling and well-known urban acts, east-London collective Roll Deep, scoring two top 20 hits with Heartbreak Avenue and Shake A Leg. Roll Deep's debut album, In At The Deep End, has to date, sold over 95,000 copies in the UK alone. He has also worked with and produced many artists including Dizzee Rascal, Jamelia, Jermaine Dupri, Wiley, Boy Better Know and Kano. Danny Weed, 25, is a producer for the Mobo award-nominated UK grime music collective Roll Deep, whose first album included two top 20 hits.

    Innovator. Visionary. Icon. Legend. David Bowie's departure from Earth will see his legacy grow as steadily as his mystery. He re-wrote the rules of pop - exploring, challenging and inspiring anyone who wanted to push the boundaries of music, art, fashion and society. We'll be paying homage to Bowie and celebrating his incredible creative impact with a night dedicated solely to his music, and all proceeds will go to Cancer Research UK. Playing a two-hour set will be Europe's finest David Bowie tribute band - Absolute Bowie. Expect to be taken on a journey through Bowie's myriad personas, from Ziggy and Aladdin Sane, through to The Thin White Duke and The Man Who Sold the World. They've been voted one of the best tribute bands in the world and we're certain that The Starman himself will look down on them with a wry smile. Our resident DJ will also be taking to the decks to spin all of Bowie's hits through the decades. So let's dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues, and raise a glass to a true legend.

    The Dunwells & Bronze Radio Return @ Picture House Social

    Sat 09 April at 07:30pm until Sat 09 April 2016 at 10:30pm

    The best is yet to come for The Dunwells…” The Huffington Post “...the fusion of rock and electronics recalls early Killers, while the down-to-earth songwriting nods towards Elbow.” CLASH Fresh from a wealth of international heavyweight touring, The Dunwells have announced plans for their hugely anticipated second album, ‘Light Up The Sky’. Set for release February 26th, the band worked with producers including Steve Harris (Kodaline), Dan McDougall (Aurora) and Manny Marroquin (Haim, Sia, Taylor Swift). Check out the brand new video for the single ‘Hey Now’ which is out today. There may only be two members with the same surname, but The Dunwells are very much a band of brothers consisting of two siblings Joe (vocals, guitar) and David Dunwell (vocal, piano, guitar) and their two close school friends, Rob Clayton (bass) and Adam Taylor (drums). Hailing from Leeds, the band formed in 2009, drawn together by a mutual love of bands such as Bon Iver, Elbow, and Damien Rice. Joe (lead vocals) had this to say about the album: “This is an album full of heart felt lyrics and powerful melodies, it's an album of hope, struggles with everyday life, sadness, happiness, honesty, the desire for more. It’s about being a human being with the same emotions as everyone else.” The Dunwells have produced a unique blend of electro-infused, honest indie music, layered over endearing instrumentals that could only have been crafted straight from the heart, their lust for something more, and an unbreakable bond between them and their two childhood friends. With their previous EP ‘Lucky Ones’ hitting over one million streams on Spotify, a debut album and two EPs under their belts, the band are set to enjoy huge success with their upcoming release.

    VANT is the brainchild of frontman Mattie Vant. Born out of discontent and frustration at the fucked up world we currently inhabit, he built an arsenal of songs that are short, poignant and socially aware remedies to the ignorance of most modern consumerist pop music. What started as a solo project quickly evolved into the fully formed eight-legged beast that is currently gearing up for its first UK wide outing in mid-March 2015.
