The Fighting Cocks 18th Birthday Party w/ Henri Herbert, Love Me Tenders, Kit Trigg FREE ENTRY

Let us take you back to March 2000: We had just entered the new Millenium awaiting flying cars and hover boards, Bill Clinton was President of the USA and Blink 182s All The Small Things was kept off the Number 1 spot by Geri Halliwell. It was also the same year we opened the doors to you ‘orrible lot at The Fighting Cocks and so finally, the day has come… Our 18th year at The Fighting Cocks… so what better way to celebrate than with one of our good ol’ fashioned bottle breaking tear up!

We’ve smashed ourselves to get this little shindig together and we cant wait to celebrate this milestone with each and every one of you.

So whats on the agenda we hear you ask. Well…
Taking the stage we’ve got the one and only Henri Herbert And The Fury. The former Jim Jones Revue pianist has been busting pianos all over the world in recent years and we’re utterly honored to have him and his crew don our grubby little stage. Lets boogie woogie!


In support we welcome back the rock n roll drum and guitar duo The Love Me Tenders. They seem to be playing relentlessly recently and we’re stoked they’ve taken time out of their busy schedule to party with us.


And if that’s not enough… we also have BBC Music Introducing darlings KIT TRIGG to kick you into shape with some cool as all hell blues rock.


Thirsty for more? Well, to keep you warm we’ll be throwing around some free shots from our sponsors Fireball UK Whisky!

Skinny Milk, Model Citizens, Suspects FREE ENTRY

The Fighting Cocks finally presents unto you an evening of duos, couples and twosomes, if you will.

It seems less is more these days and we’re going to let these three bands prove it.

We excitedly welcome back SKiNNY MiLK from Brighton. These two fuzzy psychonauts have played for us on various occasions including last years NYE party. Since then they have played and blasted every watering hole and venue in the UK, including being the backing band for Castle Face Records’ Male Gaze on their UK and Euro tour last month. Be sure to have your ear plugs in deep and your mouth guards in. You’ve been warned.

Support comes from Kingstons finest, Model Citizens. Beating you down with desert rock vibes, uncompromising charm and good looks.

And doubly excited to introduce Southends partners in crime, Suspects. We don’t know how these two have managed to stay under the radar for so long… But we’re glad they finally surfaced. Get down early to witness their shear power of punk and grunge rock.
