JUNE 2017

Well I don't know about you but June sure rattled round quick. Jeezo.
One minute is Easter now it's the Galadays....oh Hip Hip BTW.
Better get a wee list of what to expect this month up then but many will need NO introductions but would defo prompt you to share the events and get a ticket asap where required if you are going.
International status bands, local and Nationally recognised bands along with some top notch covers and tributes all jammed in to West Lothian's Premier Rock Club..
Just to say a lot of effort has gone in to get some of these bands to come to play right on your doorstep - They are well worth the price of a fish supper so don't let me down or be washing your hair that night. Just saying.
So lets get the ball rolling.
FRIDAY 2 JUNE - FLASHBACK
Great to see the band back at full strength and back at the Dread for a Pre-Galaday night of Rock Covers.

SAT 10 JUNE - TOO LATE TO ATONE
Making the trip over the Forth its a pleasure to welcome back these guys and a fantastic Night of Rock Covers very rarely attempted by anyone else. They've always been unlucky with turnout in the past which certainly has nothing to do with the show they put on. Make it one you pop into this time
£3 at the door (Free B4 8.30pm) - You'd be hard pushed to get anything close for 3 times the money elsewhere.

SAT 17 JUNE - RUSHFEST 2017
I'm afraid there's not much to post as it's TOTALLY SOLD OUT this year again. You'll miss Geddy Lee's Brother Allan Weinrib via Satellite and amazing line up as ever thro the whole day unless you bought a ticket in advance. We hope to raise several thousand more pounds for Teenage Cancer in 2017 and might be hard pushed to beat £9500 in 2016 but will give it a go. FYI Nightclub open at 10pm as normal using side entrance.
FRI 23 JUNE - SAAAAAAXXXXXXOOOOOOOOONNNNN.
OLIVER and DAWSON the founding members of Saxon are with us with a night of Classic Rock and Saxon.
AYE the real ones not a tribute...aye someone did ask !
I'm not sure why this isn't sold out yet but wouldn't fart about much longer if you haven't got a ticket yet. Support from the Awesome GORDONS ALIVE.
Tickets £10 from all outlets, online etc etc. Get yours asap !

SAT 24 JUNE - CHROME MOLLY.
Who they Al ? Well I would say go look them up but you prob won't so Chrome Molly rose thro the ranks back in the mid late 80's to become a top band. Great sound, Albums and shows. Supporting on the Alice Coopers Raise Your Fist And Yell tour in 1988. They got mega airplay on Radio 1 with Shoot Me Down before sadly splitting in 1991. It's brilliant they have reformed and sounding as good as ever. It would be even better if you popped in and heard the guys perform in you own rock club tho. Tickets are just £8 and with support from BLACK SUN what's holding ye back !
