Just announced: Charlie Winston, 16th October.

Charlie Winston

16 October / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

Cornish-born, Suffolk-bred Charlie Winston started his solo writing path playing all over Europe on a shoestring: Germany, France, Italy, Spain - he was out performing anywhere that would take him, embodying the wandering troubadour style that would eventually bring him to international attention.

It was a combination of this relentless tour schedule and natural enigma that grabbed the legendary Peter Gabriel’s attention, inviting Charlie to tour with him around Europe and allowing him to use his own personal studio to record tracks on weekends. It would be a combination of these records and ones he recorded at London’s MI7 Studios that would become the basis for Charlie’s debut album ‘Hobo’. Striking a chord with disenchanted kids around Europe, the album went platinum in 2009. Blowing up initially in Paris, it went on to top the official charts in France, Germany and Canada.

Stepping into a firestorm of national celebrity following his simultaneous No.1s, Charlie left Paris after two years touring the ‘Hobo’ album and although he stayed awhile in L.A. recording and working with producer Tony Berg (Beck, At The Drive-In) and star choreographer Ryan Heffington (Arcade Fire’s ‘We Exist’, Sia’s ‘Chandelier’) his second album, 2012’s ‘Running Still’ was recorded again largely as a nomad. Old habits die hard, it would seem. Tousled and unkempt, Charlie would go on to win GQ’s iconic ‘Best- Dressed Man Of The Year’ in France that same year.

Since the release of his sophomore album, Charlie has refined his sound. He has begun to strip it down, to beef up his production chops; a reaction to the music he’s hearing - Alt-J, Lorde, Daft Punk, Nils Frahm, Jon Hopkins. If ‘Hobo’ was a romanticised sepia image of the troubadour and ‘Running Still’ was a punk and hip-hop influenced work referencing The Beastie Boys and ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik’ then his new studio album ‘Curio City’ is framed by electronica and futurism.

Just announced: Mr Scruff Keep It Unreal, 5th November.

Mr Scruff Keep It Unreal

05 November / 22:00 / More Info / Buy Tickets

Time for Mr. Scruff's monthly residency at Band on the Wall.

As always, Scruff will be at the controls for 5 hours, serving up a melting pot of jazz, soul, hip hop, funk, disco, deep house, reggae, afrobeat, latin, and plenty of goodies that don’t fit into any category.

Expect fantastic sound, a lovely mixed crowd & great atmosphere.

This is a non-mobile disco.

Please don’t use cameras and phones on the dance floor.

We ask this because we want the dancefloor to be a place where everyone can be in the moment. If you’re tweeting, texting, bidding for a pair of socks on eBay or taking a picture of your friends, you’re not only out of the moment, you also might be making it hard for someone else to be in the moment. The bar or balcony is a much better place for this.

Just announced: How to Dress Well Special Guests, 24th November.

How to Dress Well Special Guests

24 November / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

As How to Dress Well, Tom Krell makes ghostly, affecting R&B. While he was living in Brooklyn, Krell performed live experimental music as How to Dress Well by looping layers of his voice, and he began recording under that name after moving to Berlin. He released the first How to Dress Well EP, The Eternal Love, in October 2009 as a free download via his blog, and more EPs followed through April 2010. Krell signed to Lefse Records, which released his first official single, Ready for the World, in July 2010; his acclaimed debut album, Love Remains, arrived that October. Two years later, Krell returned with Total Loss, a more cleanly recorded set of songs inspired by trying to be positive in the face of adversity that featured co-production by XL Records executive Rodaidh McDonald. McDonald and Krell teamed up again for 2014's ambitious What Is This Heart?

Pop Up Opera - The Barber of Seville

29 September / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

Experience opera like you’ve never seen before, as Pop-up Opera take to the stage with a daringly unfussy production of Rossini’s sparkling comic masterpiece, laying bare the characters in all their glorious eccentricity.

Witness razor-sharp timing as the ever resourceful barber, Figaro, tries to help the young Count Almaviva win the hand of the beautiful Rosina, out of love instead of his wealth. Soon the pair set about to produce many disguises for the count, and thus the farce ensues...!

Rossini's famous opera buffa is brought to life by the critically acclaimed Pop-Up Opera, sung in Italian with English captions.

Evening Standard 4*

“Buzzes with rude energy… skilfully negotiating Rossini’s outrageous vocalism”
