It’s time to Kick Out The Jams…
25th May, The Kings Cross Mix Up stars JEKYLL + The Garage Flowers + The Trusted + Rubber Jaw with DJ Peggy’s World – £7 Entry on the door or click here: Advance £5 (+ £1 booking fee). Scroll down for info on 20th June‘s launch of The Camden Mix Up at it’s new home, the Dublin Castle.
Guitar band fans, if you’ve not experienced a #KOTJmixup yet, then you’ll enjoy their assortment of rising, rocking, Punk and Indie shakers.
On Saturday 25th May, catch increasingly festival-sought punky quartet, The Garage Flowers before they hit Camden Rocks.
Essex’s The Trusted fuse The Clash and The 1975 with a showy and confident live presence.
Arrive early doors for Rubber Jaw, signed to Alan McGee‘s Creation 23 Label. They’ve recently completed a BBC Radio 1 session and a This Feeling tour.
Headliners, Jekyll, are also fresh from a live BBC Maida Vale session and interview with Huw Stephens of Radio 1. Described as “Operatic, anthemic rock” by Louder Than War and “Stratospheric” by GigSlutz, the band are a Blackpool Rock storm of guitar sounds raining into your senses.
Rapidly snapped up by legendary (know-their-stuff-early-Coldplay-to-Fontaines-style) label/club, Fierce Panda last year (arena potential and all that), this is Jekyll’s first London headline at a venue of iconic reputation.
TheZineUK are proud to be associated with KOTJ shows. Founded on credible artists and entertainment, alongside the music social, makes for a fun night. We all believe in keeping Musicians Against Homelessness in mind. Probably why these events feel so friendly.
Sponsored by Rotor Videos, promoter and connector, Kick Out The Jams began at Tunbridge Wells Forum in Autumn 2017. Like Stone Roses say, “love spreads”.
The mix of cool faces for hot bands was an instant hit. KOTJ gigs and festival stages have continuously built a firm following of artists, scouts, bloggers, photographers and creative music passions. The likes of Trampolene, Couples, Bang Bang Romeo, Wynona Bleach, Fontaines D.C., Avalanche Party, Sick Love, Sisteray, The Rezner, The Novus, Saint Agnes, False Heads, Calva Louise and, oh, so many more are already making bigger waves.
When The Velvet Hands, Bugeye, Smiley & The Underclass and DJ Katie O launched The Camden Mix Up in September 2018, the chaotic excellence was like a 21st Century CBGBs. 1-in-1-out at The Good Mixer from the first band. Beautiful it was. The line up have gone further in profile, already.
Kick Out The Jams is like an airport for potential that could really fly. After a brilliant 45 bands fest, #TheBrightonMixUp (9th-11th May), things got “next level”.
The June Camden Mix Up starts monthly gatherings of the UK’s biggest buzzes coming to the new location, Dublin Castle. Again, every name on the bill has a genuine buzz happening. In the spirit of the interdependent new music industry, all come recommended widely by those in the know.
Dead Naked Hippies, ear and mind engaging, femme fronted, outspoken, art-rock outsiders with a Great Wall of sound. Young Garbo; “It’s punk, it’s rock n’ roll and at times it’s disco. It’s insane…” (Ramble On), Manchester punks, The C33s have grabbed attention, national radio play, festivals and CABBAGE supports with their April single ‘Manic Depression’. Attention winning. Cavalcade are gonna leave you with a taste of how #TheCamdenMixUp is gonna start at it’s new home.
