Summer Sundae Fringe Review

A lot of us here at Firebug are still recovering from a Weekend at the Summer Sundae Festival held up at DeMontfort Hall this weekend just gone. It’s been an amazing weekend, but for us personally the highlight was the Fringe Festival held at tonnes of venues around the city including the Firebug. John’s written a review of the night for CreativeLeicester.com which you can read HERE.

Massive thanks to Steve Jones, Russell Daly and all the bands – but in particular all you lot who came down for what turned in to an epic evening of music. It’s certainly one of the highlights of the cities musical calendar for us.

Check back for photos and videos from the evening as soon as we can beat them out of the photographers!

Cocktails Of The Week

This week’s Shooter of the week is our version of the classic Bubblegum – Bright blue and tasting like bubblegum, suprisingly, it’s always a popular choice.

The cocktail of the week is a variation on The Bluebird, which originates in Parisian bars, circa 1950. Our version is The Blackbird, and it’s definitely better. Hayley says so.

Katatonia Advance Tickets Sold Out

Tonight’s Katatonia show is now completely sold out online and in shops.

There may be very limited tickets available on the door, but you’ll need to be here as doors open (at 8:00pm) to get your hands on them.

It’s set to be a pretty special night, with support coming from Leicester’s own Internal Conflict.
