It’s been a while hasn’t it!
In what’s been a very different summer for us, we’ve had some major events at the club. Since re-opening, we’ve gone from strength to strength, and we look forward now to getting in to Swansea University Freshers 2013.
For those of you still with us, we look forward to welcoming you back, for those past, feel free to come back any time, you’ll always be welcome, and for those joining us… Just wait for what’s ahead!
We’ll be keeping up to date with our blog, especially with all things Sin City, our new night 131, Sin Savers, our gigs, and of course Sink Swansea.
Keep your eyes peeled!
Friday 12th July at Sin City is going to be pretty special. Public Service Broadcasting is a band that can only be truly appreciated live. This pair of talented chaps mix sampled archive footage with upbeat electronic mastery and lay it all over a set of stunning visuals. The Independent has dubbed them “A Sampladelic Delight”, The Guardian made them the album of the week calling it “Artful and Evocative” and they have won the BBC Radio 6 Rebel playlist award twice. Ye that all sounds great. But after stepping off the Sin City stage they’ll be casually moving on to Hyde Park to support The Rolling Stones the very next day. These guys are not messing about, this is your chance to see them in the most intimate setting.
So, it’s been a long and rather weird summer. The Olympics were a great success, let’s be fair, and we feel the opening ceremony showcased all the great music we as a country have produced. We had modern greats like the Arctic Monkeys performing Beatles tracks, Sir Paul himself even graced the stage and got us all singing along. The fact that so much of the music wasn’t the poppy, cheesy rubbish that we put out most of the time wasn’t really included excited us. Sex pistols blared around the Olympic stadium as the opening video played on the screens. All of these inclusions warmed our hearts, and gave us the belief that yes, there is hope for us music lovers. On a slightly different note, can anyone think of anything cooler than Beckham driving a speedboat? Or even the Queen skydiving with James Bond?
In light of this awesome summer, we hope to keep the good times going here at Sin City. Freshers is fast approaching, and with that a new group of young and enthusiastic students will gather in the city of Swansea. Never fear, we are prepared! Not only will the club nights you know and love commence as per, but an array of exciting talent will grace us with their presence at the club…
We’ll spoil you with the likes of Vince Kidd (off of the Voice & SBTV), Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Hadouken!, Dan Le Sac and many more great acts.
So if you’re sat at home, with the Olympic blues, the Festival blues or indeed any other worry, we just want you to know one thing. Don’t fear, don’t worry… We’ve got this!
Much Love from the Sin City Crew x
Who would have thought that keeping a blod up to date was such hard work…!! Well it is; The last few months have been mental, we’ve had loads on our plate! Ed Sheeran was a massive success, Francesqa and Max Raptor were both great gigs, Gay for Johnny Depp put on one hell of a show but gig of the year so far has to go to The Gallows who played their penultimate gig in Sin City before the band split. The energy in the room was amazing and Frank did not dissapoint! If you missed it… sadly, you missed out!
Now the Summer… and we’ve got our weekly Sin Savers // Face/off and The Wonder Years sessions contuing throughout these sun bathed Swansea days (yeah right…?!), but we get a bit of breathing space to work out exactly how we intend to blow the roof off Freshers, and welcome back the students in style the way only Sin City knows how!
We’ve got a whole load of new gigs to announce, which i’ll get to this evening! Some well known… some new breaking bands… and of course; some world class DJ’s.
For now though… I’m going to take the rest of the afternoon… sit back and relax with my Iced Mocha! More Tonight…!
