The Plug, Sheffield, S1

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.

    Jaws w/ Tropic of Youth & The Magic Gang

    Fri 18 April at 07:00pm until Fri 18 April 2014 at 10:30pm

    Tie-dye, bleach, beanies, plaid shirts, baseball caps? You’d be forgiven for thinking we’ve just stepped back into the 90s but fear not. Brummie four-piece Jaws have been making some grungy musical waves with their punky, reverb drowned riffs and low-key psychedelia. Drawing inspiration from all over the shop, including New Order and The Smashing Pumpkins has made them impossible to pigeon hole, although they have been lovingly compared to Foals, Vampire Weekend and Beach Fossils. They’ve toured with The Twang, Swim Deep and Spector, released two EPs and have a debut album in the pipeline. Between you and me, I reckon the best is yet to come from these sharp-toothed skater kids. Get down to Plug and see what all the fuss is about.

    Dalen Light presents Jesus Pablo (Something Different)

    Fri 18 April at 11:00pm until Sat 19 April 2014 at 05:00am

    Dalen Light will be 2 'n' half! Coincidentally this lands over the Easter break on Good Friday (apparently it’s got something to do with the Jesus chap). Coincidentally again, Jesus himself will be gracing the decks! Jesus aka Paul Morgan fuses deep house and techno flavas and his many productions, remixes and collaborations have appeared on some of the most respected labels in the house/deep house game. Jesus Pablo (Something Different) DJ, producer, remixer, record label boss… born and bred scouser from Liverpool who has a very Spanish alias. Jesus aka Paul Morgan fuses deep house and techno flavas, with his many productions, remixes and collaborations appearing on some of the most respected labels in the house/deep house game, including i! Records, Lost My Dog, Viva Recordings, Deeper Shades Of House, Bulletdodge Records, Savoir Faire Musique, Headset Recordings, What Happens and more. As a DJ, he's made his mark on the international circuit over the last 10 years. He's played gigs in South Africa and undertaken a month-long tour of the USA and Mexico in 2011, he's also racked up gigs in Germany, Georgia, Poland, Norway and Denmark, as well as manning the decks at a host of underground clubs across the UK – always sticking to his key philosophy: “Music should make you dance, smile and think all at the same time, so that's what I intend to do.”

    Local Sheffielders Sabella are 'four normal lads with a passion for guitar music, writing songs about everyday life, with lyrics that everyday people can relate to'. They'll be serving up a fresh alternative to mainstream pop pap, with loud guitars, big sounds and catchy riffs. Joining Sabella will be The Verals, who’ll be bringing their unique brand of punchy rock ‘n’ roll to the Plug stage. Sheff-town five piece Feral Brood are the final piece of this evening’s musical puzzle. With a self produced album already in the bag, this band is armed to the teeth, crammed into the cockpit of a supersonic jet and ready to drive home some missiles of sound.

    Kins @ Shakespeares

    Thu 24 April at 07:00pm until Thu 24 April 2014 at 10:30pm

    Delicate emotion, melancholic melodies and deliberately awkward rhythms. Kins self-confessed speciality is ‘the sound of doubt, detachment and muted aggression’. Imagine downtempo electronics creating an expansive, atmospheric sound and you’re in the right ball park... Originally hailing from Brighton just outside Melbourne, the band formed in 2010. They soon set off to conquer pastures new and visited the UK seaside town of Brighton for a day trip. It felt like home so they decided to stay. Last year saw Kins release their first full length self-titled album, embark on their debut US tour and play at some top festivals including SXSW and Noise Pop Festival. Phew. These busy bees are set for another jam-packed year as they tour the UK and luckily for us they’ll be making a very welcome stop at Shakespeares

They've sold out shows at many famous venues including Sheffield's O2 Academy, Nottingham's Rescue Rooms and The World Stage at Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival.

After decades of questing, the boy found said flute behind ASDA, and took it to the highest point around to blow upon it. The flute's magic summoned the greatest band mates of all time, and also Liam. They formed a comedy rock band and named themselves after the flute that created them. Also they were in no way delusional about the way they were formed. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Magic-Flute/518063138264238?fref=ts THE INDIGOS the iNDIGOS are a new band formed at Forge Valley Community School Sheffield.

In June, they won a round of the ‘Battle of the Bands’ Schools Tournament and will compete in the final at the O2 Academy Sheffield on February 21st 2014.

    And it’s down the bad rabbit hole we go. Bad Rabbits are a mega melting pot of cultures and sounds. Sounding like a roughed-up 80s funk band, their live shows are peppered with old school synchronised dance moves combined with a whole host of high energy antics. Having initially brought out several EPs, they finally took the plunge in 2013 and independently released their first album, American Love. They’ve had the good fortune to tour with rap legend Slick Rick and played the Vans Warped Tour in 2011, an experience they’re set to repeat this year. Their feel good vibe is so refreshing and intoxicating that there’s no way you’ll be able to stop yourself from dancing to this lot.

Callum Burrows aka Saint Raymond is a fine purveyor of upbeat, indie-pop that’ll have you wishing you were sipping cider and dancing around in a festival field with your buds. Last year was an absolute rollercoaster ride for this guy. His debut Escapade EP shot straight up the iTunes chart and he played two stonking sets at Reading and Leeds fests on the BBC Introducing stage. He’s also scored a couple of sweet supporting slots for Gabrielle Aplin and current indie darlings, Haim. So get your tickets quick, this is gonna be mint.

These guys deal in high energy, emotionally charged indie-rock and they sure do it well. Very well. Following a couple of awesome live sessions on BBC Radio 6 and Xfm Xposure there's a definite buzz going round about the three-piece outfit and their new album has been described as one of 'true growth, both musically and personally'. Augustines are passionate, powerful and renowned for connecting with the crowd. Everything a band should be.

With this idea they asked Alex Levitt (lead guitarist/pianist) to join and started to get a feel for each others musical abilities. After a session they later drafted in Ashley Jacobs (rhythm guitarist) to join the project. A few sessions later they wrote their first two tracks Meet Your Maker and Rebirth where they started to record their first EP.

    First up we have Ashby, a four-piece indie rock band whose gigs encompass an eclectic mix of their own original tunes plus some sweet covers from the likes of The Clash, The Jam and Arctic Monkeys. Mega. Heavily influenced by the British punk scene of the 1970s and bands like The Stones Roses and Oasis, the punky-edged music of AKA Pipeline is dotted with catchy choruses and lyrics that’ll soon get your toes tappin’. Invisible Grease promise to play ‘electrifying tunes to soothe your lug holes’. And they like pork pies too. Without Perception count The Ramones, Pink Floyd and Alison in Chains amongst their influences. Think grungy, progressive alt-rock all rolled up into a ball of awesomeness.

Niall Galvin aka Only Real sure does love his cereal, but in between munching on bowlfuls of the breakfast staple he likes to sit in his bedroom with his computer and create sublime tunes. Only Real describes his music as 'guitar music for people who don't like guitars' and his songs have a rough around the edges quality to them that is immediately listenable and most importantly, likeable. Have a listen to Cadillac Girl for a delicious taste of fuzzy psychedelic guitars over half-singing, half-rapping vocals. Although he only played his first live show in December, Only Real brings a fresh, young at heart vibe to the stage and we know you'll make him feel right at home at The Harley.

Progressive rock is their main staple. Prepare to be blown away. ‘Psyche loons.’ ‘Fuelled on snake blood drunk from the devil’s armpit.’ ‘As good a live band as you’ll see.’ ‘Groovy, sleazy, garage-y and a tad creepy.’ All these comments have been attributed to Sheffield duo the Death Rays of Ardilla.

    Permission! On Standby will be ripping up the Plug stage as our headliners tonight, bringing their own distinctive sound to proceedings. Think brutally heavy breakdowns and melodic choruses. Talking of melodic, did someone say melodic metalcore? To the uneducated ear that might sound like a suspicious oxymoron. But fear not, 5-piece band Devilator will be out to educate one and all this evening. Next up are Weekend Offenders who have a serious penchant for rock and rollin’. They’ll be bringing a bangin’ combination of covers from Arctic Monkeys to Papa Roach, plus a good ol’ dollop of tunes penned by their own fair hands. Meanwhile, Day Old Hate, who are currently taking the melodic hardcore seen by storm will be whipping up an on-stage hurricane for your aural pleasure. And the final piece of the puzzle will be Ohmnicide. Prepare yourself for an intense new metal hybrid. Imagine what would happen if we locked extreme metal, groove metal and post metal in a room.

    7 pounds to watch 5 awesome bands you say? One word. Bargain. Freeze The Atlantic will be bringing their refreshingly British sound to the stage. A plethora of tours and festival appearances plus the release of their debut album Speakeasy has seen them hone their live performances into something heavier, smarter and more accomplished. Pop-rock perfection. Take The Seven are a five-piece from Chezzy. Describing their sound as ‘Derbyshire-driven commercial rock’, I’ll leave it to you to imagine what they sound like. Better still, come and find out. Next up and freely oozing energy and adrenaline-filled synth lines out of their veins are 5-piece alt-rockers Inherit The Stars. Bring your air guitar ‘cause these guys sure do love a good rock riff. Fourth on the bill are Kill Chaos. Rock Sound described their vocals as ‘brain botheringly dark’, while Kerrang said, ‘These boys done good’. High praise indeed. And finally, beer and facial hair enthusiasts Sleepy Eyes will be bounding in to Plug to quench your pop-punk thirst. Buzzin’.

Hot young things The Preatures are undoubtedly set for greatness so my advice to you is to hot foot it down to Plug to see them, quick! If you haven't heard of them yet, think Haim but with one cool-toned ladybabe and four well-dressed indie guys. Hailing from Sydney, the five-piece effortlessly combine classic songwriting with raw, infectious delivery. They've been described as The Velvet Underground crashing into Motown and their live shows have an undeniably cultish quality about them, oozing charge and magnetism. Listen out for the irresistibly catchy Is This How You Feel? and Manic Baby.

    RedFaces lead the charge this evening. The indie-rock band count The Beatles, The Zutons and Noah and the Whale amongst their influences and they’re the first band to label themselves as DronRock. You heard it here first. Next up are alt-prog-rockers The People. They’ll be bringing distorted guitar riffs, melodic synthesizers and atmospheric interludes to launch a welcome assault on your sonic space. Third in line are The Recordists. As fine purveyors of noise and words, these guys have been described as Mudhoney meets The Stooges and the Sex Pistols possessing the Pixies. They have to be seen to be believed. Trust Within has had more incarnations than James Bond but the four-piece alt-rock-metal band seem to have settled on a winning combination. And last but certainly not least are Polyopia. They’re the kings of crossing genres. Why settle on one or two genres when you can span a whole host? Imagine what would happen if you put rock, alternative, improvisation, freestyle rap, heavy indie and punk in the same room. Just imagine.

    Sat 26 July at 11:00pm until Sun 27 July 2014 at 05:00am

    Price = NOWT! We’re throwing a party to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported and partied with us at Ohm during our first year. And it’s totally FREE! We’ll be welcoming back Mosca, who we hear can’t wait to return to the DJ booth following his last Ohm appearance. Any DJ who starts a set with Wu Tang’s ’36 Chambers’ and ends with a meaty helping of heavy techno is more than all right with us. Also joining the party and making his Sheffield debut will be South London Ordnance. He’s established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the electronic music scene and 2014 looks set to be his biggest and best year so far. Supporting these two will be Ohm resident Pedram. Fingers crossed he’ll be fit to play following his set at Global Gathering the night before! This Ohm is on Tramlines’ weekend but you won’t need a wristband or special tickets to get in. Just come down and enjoy a rave on us!  https://www.facebook.com/events/277355242428120/

    Cup of tea, Cate? Cate le Bon is so fond of the nation’s favourite drink that she chose to name her latest album Mug Museum. And when she’s not drinking tea, she writes and performs songs of psychedelic folk majesty. As an artist, Cate has been described as Nico-esque and her live performances are a thing of intense beauty. Beneath her icy cool demeanour bubbles a menacing energy. Her voice possesses a curious and diverse quality, which can be shy and folksy in one breath and a high soprano in the next. Prepare to be utterly enthralled.

    Cult favourites. Cast your mind back to 1993, when Jurassic Park was busy terrifying small children and Whitney was riding high at the top of the charts with some old country tune. It was during this time that a little instrumental, stripped-down dub dance group called Dreadzone were in their infancy. Now, 21 years on, that little dub dance group have got 9 studio albums and 2 live albums under their belts and they’re still going strong. Constantly striving to remain relevant by writing fresh, innovative material has led to a slew of hit records, massive critical acclaim and a huge, devoted fanbase. These guys pretty much wrote the book on spanning genres and their music is a bubbling pot of reggae, techno, folk, dance and rock, all mixed up in a big dub cauldron. Even though they’re 21 years into their career as a band they feel they still have something to say musically and lyrically and we certainly agree with that.
