Spring King and Dead Pretties are lined up to help launch the Old Blue Last’s takeover of London live music haunt, the Sebright Arms.
The venue is one of London’s best-loved on the grassroots circuit and the home of our recent M magazine’s Independent Venue Week showcase with Pictish Trail, Manuela and Graceland.
Among the first artists performing in the 150 capacity space are 150-capacity space are Ulrika Spacek, Spring King, Gengahr, Traams, Dead Pretties, LICE and Hotel Lux.
The team behind Shoreditch’s riotous Old Blue Last are an associate partner of Vice and also run Dalston hot spot, Birthdays.
Having closed its doors earlier this month for refurbishment, the iconic venue will re-open again to the public on Monday 6 March.
Cal McRae, Vice head booker, said: ‘We’re beyond excited to be working on Sebright Arms, there’s a real simplicity and authenticity to it all – it’s a straight up boozer with an incredible sounding venue that myself, along with a lot of other people hold in high regard. Most importantly, it’s another bar I can get away with spending most of my time in, and calling it work.
‘We want to bring Sebright back to it’s original form, filling it with an in house programme consisting of some of the most exciting, up and coming acts as well as established acts in a setting you’d never normally be able to see them in, which is something that we’ve developed a great reputation for doing so over at our other sites.’
The venue will also be partnering with DICE, the ticketing app dedicated to supporting independent venues and growing the live music industry.
