Ever wanted to have a go behind the decks? Well, this is your chance! Turn up for a session with DJ Ruby Please, who will introduce you to the basics. Just approach the cool lady fiddling with musical machinery in the main room, and let her know that you’d like a go.
Please bear in mind that this session will only be running during the first half hour of the night, so get there early! Doors are at 7pm.
If you’re inspired by the session we might even be able to book you to DJ inbetween acts at future events.
It’s all there in the title really. Click on the link below for advance tickets to Revolt. It will be possible to also buy entry on the door, but this way you save a little bit of money and help us out with the organisation end of things – what’s not to like?
Wait! It’s not all there in the title. Because we’ve also added the delectable Jude Sandelewski to the line-up. He’ll be regaling you with lyrical poetry during one of the night’s quieter, more reflective moments.
With a month to go until our next event on Saturday 22nd February, we’re pleased to announce a whole load of cool stuff…
Rounding off the band line-up are Bad Vibes, who a whole load of people wanted to see again after a great debut set at the last Revolt. So, we’ve invited them back!
We’ve also confirmed a couple of fantastic spoken word acts. Jo Johnson will be travelling down from Leeds to deliver a fiery collection of political poems. Megan Dodds will be making her second appearance at Revolt, following a powerfully moving performance back at the beginning of 2013. We’re also hoping to have a speaker from Reclaim The Night Coventry, which will be taking place on Saturday 1st March.
Finally, we’re delighted to announce the return of the Possessed to Print patch stall and zine library. If you attended our November 2013 event, you definitely won’t have missed their awesome DIY riot grrrl and punk patches!
We’ll have advance tickets on sale soon, so keep checking back for updates!
The line-up is shaping up very nicely…here’s what we have confirmed so far!
We were dead excited when (hooker) contacted us in the summer about playing Revolt. They’re an amazing live act with a decade’s worth of experience – during that time they’ve played alongside the likes of Le Tigre, The Slits and Interpol, and toured with Gossip and Katastrophy Wife. If you like dancing to urgent post-punk sounds, you’re going to have a great time during their set.
A relatively youthful five-piece of international origin, Mean Bikini have spent the past couple of years gigging across London wielding a collection of rough, fuzzy songs with a sunny disposition.
Local band with genuinely furious tunes delivered in good humour. Recently described as “angry in the right kind of way” by Ladiyfest Sheffield.
We’re also delighted to announce that we’ll also have a range of punky tunes from the decks courtesy of DJ Ruby Please, and a variety of feminist music and merch available from Robot Unicorn Records.
See you there!
Inspired by releases such as the Riots Not Diets albums, we’ve put together a compilation to celebrate the first year of Revolt, featuring fifteen great bands who have played our events.
It’s available for FREE to stream and download. The download file comes with information about every band and printable CD sleeves.
We had another wonderful event at the beginning of November – thanks to My Therapist Says Hot Damn, Jesus and his Judgemental Father, Bad Vibes, A Year From Now, Kat Gupta and Revolting Words open mic for their amazing sets, Megan and Tom for their wonderful patch/zine stall, and everyone who came to party in a positive way with us.
We’ve had a bit of feedback from both attendees and from materials left at the zine table which we’ll totally be taking on board for future events. It really matters to us that Revolt is accessible and safe for all. If you have any concerns about anything that happens at our events, please do let us know.
The next Revolt will take place on SATURDAY 22ND FEBRUARY, once again in the Coal Vaults.
We’ll have a DJ set from the incredible Ruby Please, a stall hosted by Robot Unicorn Records, plus Megan and Tom will be back with their punk patch/zine stall. Plus, some really fantastic bands and spoken word – more on that soon.
At this event we’ll be distributing the first ever Revolt Zine – pieced together from some of the fantastic/fun/powerful pieces of art, doodling and prose people contributed on 2nd November.
We’ll see you in February!
Revolt is almost upon us! Yet we have a couple more exciting things still to announce…
Firstly, we’ll be making the first ever Revolt Zine…and we’re inviting you to be a part of it.
We’ll have a table near the bar with a whole load of paper, pens, pencils, sharpies, glue, scissors and the like. We’re inviting you to contribute anything that you fancy contributing – perhaps a drawing, a poem, a story, an essay, a review of one of the acts. Maybe you’d like to bring in a magazine, cut it up, and comment on it. It’s really up to you.
We’ll be assembling the zine from pages made on the night, and distributing it at our next event, due to take place in early 2014.
Secondly, we’ll be giving away a free compilation CD to the first 30 people through the door. This compilation will feature most of the bands that have played Revolt during the past year, so trust us when we say that it’s utterly awesome and you should get there early to pick up a copy.
And as if that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, we’ll leave you with this video…
We’ll see you on Saturday!
