Jimmy Carr – Funny Business
8pm
The Baths Hall
Jimmy’s been described as ‘the hardest working man in comedy’. Which, let’s face facts, is not that impressive. It’s like being the ‘Tallest Dwarf’ or the ‘Healthiest Glaswegian’. Really not that big a deal. ‘Funny Business’ is Jimmy’s brand new stand up show. Come for the witty and incisive musings on the human condition; stay for the knob gags.

Gig Review// Scunny’s New Rock Revolution

2014-11-15 20.39.07
Best Reptile

Always supporting local, the whole Scunthorpe Nights team joined the New Rock Revolution at Café INDIEpendent on Saturday. Targeted at the rock/alt scene of Scunthorpe & surrounding. The night featured 3 top alternative local bands, with a rock disco playing inbetween sets. The gig took place in the basement area of the café. The temporary BYOB policy certainly didn’t put people off from attending, and people seemed to have no problem turning up with their own cans and bottles and everyone seemed to be in high spirits.

First to the stage were Best Reptile. This  local 3-piece include members of former local legends Shuriken and as their debut gig, the band played an extremely solid and lively set, pleasing the crowd. We look forward to hearing more from Best Reptile soon – especially as their Facebook page informs us they are recording an EP next month.

The Erotic Politicians

The second act of the night were the Erotic Politicians. These guys are fantastic. The music from this rock band is tight and technical, with humorous twists in the vocals, which adds a grin to go with the uncontrollable head banging and foot stomping when listening to this band.Mike Thorpe from the band Erotic Politicians was behind the night itself so a well done to him on performance and putting the effort into organising the night.

JoJo – Tripdown Project

The final band of the night were The TripDown Project. It’s been a busy year for the TripDown boys, having embarked on a European tour earlier in the year, and then working on their recently released album – Post Modern Delay. The band were kind enough to give Scunthorpe Night’s a pile of their albums to give away for free after their set, which were well received by the crowd. The band played a decent set of mostly originals, with a couple of covers thrown in for good measure. The cover of Just Dropped In, originally by Kenny Rogers (covered in the style of Supergrass) went down particularly well with the crowd. Always a brilliant act to see, I most enjoyed the epic guitar shredding from frontman JoJo.

The TripDown Project are currently in talks about a London gig in the near future, we hope to have details soon. It was an all round brilliant night. Decent equipment was used and the sound engineering was right for the room, giving solid drums, deep bass, crisp guitar licks and clear vocals. With a decent crowd turning up to support the demand for this kind of event. We are hoping the New Rock Revolution will return again soon. If you like alternative music support the gigs and nights put on to show you are interested and you do want this.

Progress Update// The Alternative Disco Venues

Much interest has been shown over the past week in the idea of a NEW Alternative Disco in town. We have been running a survey to find out what you want. Please let us know your opinions.

Venues most mentioned have been The Baths Hall and Cafe INDIEpendent. The only problem with these venues is for a disco purpose is size and cost. There would be no disco lighting and built in DJ system in a such venue as Cafe INDIEpendent meaning the money would have to come from somewhere to start this voluntarily organised night. And the Baths Hall would be a large area to fill.

Abacus have shown interest in offering a Friday as an option with a selection of available dates but the rule (If it is not busy enough it ends at 11pm and normal club music starts).

We urge any venues interested in this night to please step forward so we can consider all options and venues. We don’t want to do things by halves. This type of event has to be done right. Chances are the trial won’t be perfect but it gives room for suggestion and improvement on future events. Ideally it would be great to move the bi-monthly/monthly disco around venues in town that suit the genre.

If you would attend or like to be involved in making it happen. Please join the new community. www.facebook.com/scunnyaltscene
