All of us here at TPBR HQ
would like to wish each and every one of you, the very best of good luck, good health and good fortune for 2015 (which is of course officially the year in which we should all finally be scooting about on hover boards ala Back To The Future 2, which is possibly the most exciting prospect/thing ever!!!!*).
As most of you might know already, our first shows of the New Year will be tinged with sadness as we will be playing a couple of shows bidding a very fond and loving farewell to our home from home, the 12 Bar Club before it closes its doors for the final time on January 16th. They are sure to be emotional evenings, so hopefully you will be able to make it down and raise a glass with us in honour of an entirely unique and legendary rock’n’roll venue.
Here are the list of our final dates at the 12 Bar Club:
Thursday 8th Jan – Full length, electric set with the full band featuring a couple of surprise guests from the TPBR family. Also on the bill are 12 Bar Club stalwarts The Bermondsey Joyriders, Koozie Johns/Folk Grinder, Allegra Shock, Ger Lane and DJ Jeff Munday. The night will kick off at 7pm and it is recommended that you order advance tickets by calling the 12 Bar ticket line on 0207 240 2622. Tickets cost £6. We will be onstage around 10:30pm and will be finished in time for you to catch the last tube home (should you be so inclined).
Here is a link to the official Face Book Event for the 8th.
Sunday 11th Jan – This is the official ‘Final Night of The 12 Bar Club’ Party and will be an all day event featuring a plethora of acts who have been associated with the 12 Bar Club over the years. Each act (including us) will only be playing a brief 20 minute or so set. We will announce our stage-time and full ticket details nearer the event, as the 12 Bar is still in the process of finalising the line-up.
With more dates already booked further afield in new towns and venues across the UK, a return to France in the Spring, and a new album to record with Boz Boorer in Portugal; 2015 is already looking like a pretty darned exciting year for us!!!! We can’t wait to get started!!!!
Big, big love and many Godzilla-sized vessels of your very favourite (and not necessarily dangerously intoxicating) tipples with vast arrays of fine (preferably hugely intoxicating) festive biscuits on the side.
