Sunday 16th October – ‘Faction’. An exciting collaborative effort from Rough Trade, Y Not Festival and BBC Introducing.
Held the third Sunday of every month at Rough Trade Nottingham, Faction showcases the best new music carefully selected from across the UK. Running from 3pm-10pm the event is free entry, there will be a bar serving good quality craft beers and DJ’s.
So far, the night features…
Youngr is a rising talent from London taking influence from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Calvin Harris, Mike Snow, NERD and his musician father August Darnell (Kid Creole & The Coconuts). He is quickly becoming known for his one-take live bootleg videos. His most notable to date is his live rendition of Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap (9 million views in just 2 weeks). This has seen him gain support from the likes of Run The Trap, Complex & BBC Radio 1. He has also already SOLD OUT two headline London shows for this October.
Out of the quiet town of Matlock come Patawawa – an electronic trio, featuring Sam Wilmot, Rory Lovatt and Beth Garrett, that blends beats to pump blood, glittered guitar riffs and basslines that bite. The three-piece have crafted a sound that stays true to the neon roots of funk and disco, but dress it with a cheekyness that could only have come out of Derbyshire.
