Arab Strap started out as an intimate project with home-recorded tapes
shared between friends, but after the unexpected success of their
inimitable debut single ‘The First Big Weekend’ they quickly found
themselves, along with pals Mogwai, as some of the most exciting and
cherished music coming out of Scotland. The band’s first gig was recorded
live for John Peel, who became an early devotee. The band went from indie
record label Chemikal Underground onto the major label Go! Beat and then
back again to Chemikal, touring the world and funnelling life’s experiences
into a unique concoction of music that explored beauty, sadness,
intoxicants, sex, love, and death all rolled into one.Doors: 7pm / 8pm start
Tickets: £27.50

Over 14s: 14-16s must be accompanied by an adult over 18
