We PARTY til the bell tolls!!! NYE 2017 Fuckers!!!
Here at The Fighting Cocks we pride ourselves on throwing the best parties all year round but nothing says celebration like NYE!! The beer will flow like wine and the whiskey flows like beer.
We’ll have live carnage from…..
The Blue Carpet Band
They havent stopped for the whole of 2017, playing every nook and cranny, bar and toilet venue of the UK. So were pleased as punch to have them play their last show of the year with us!
A powerhouse five-piece garage/ dirty rock’n'roll band. Classic blues-rock proponents such as The Yardbirds and early Rolling Stones mixing it up with New York punk and late 60′s protopunk. Think big riffs, 12-bar boogie and unstoppable energy.
The band so nice we let them play twice (in 2 months!) After they played their last show we had several punters left with a hankering for this Brighton duo… dont let the name fool you, theres nothing skinny about these two noise makers… this is full fat psyched out fuzzed up garage punk.
These guys may aswell become the FC resident band. We just fucking love them. Gutter garage rockers, sleazy n greasy with crackin hooks that’ll stick in your tiny mind till next year… hehe!
A FREE Sailor Jerry and mixer for each and everyone of you who ventures into venue… believe us, youre gonna need it with this lot.
All of this festivity for only a £5, bought in advance www.wegottickets.com/event/424985
***LAST ENTRY 11PM***
NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED.
YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.
