Default The Last Days of Electric City...

Good music, good people, good times...and we certainly left our cares behind. Often times our minds were left behind with those cares but we'll leave that for the autobiography (Check your messages Eamon). After 5.5 years of Thursdays, moving from Metropolitan to Traffic and finally to Wax (plus a one-off at Rogue), we're calling last orders on Electric City. Sincere thanks to everyone who came down to check out the nights, DJ'd for us, played live for us, who lent us bits of equipment, who gave us lifts, built us ..eh..got us drinks, designed our flyers, did the door for us, built our website....there's no way we could have kept it going as long as we have without your involvement. Big up your chests.

We'll continue to run Electric Shock nights and you'll see us cropping up here and there now and then. It won't be the same but it will be different, fresh and the music will continue to rock, hard. Like always.

The last Electric City will take place on September 25th. Full info below.

Sometimes we all need a change, for whatever reasons.

EC to the grave.

Randolph & Mortimer.

I never went to one of yer gigs, but in fairness the names ye brought over in yer time were top class.

Id say ye'll be well missed in the Capital, and not to mention outside of it.
