The Old Blue last is one of Shoreditch’s bastions of indie rock musical goodness. Plus it’s a good venue in general with decent drinks and a fair old amount of room for manoeuvre, so you can dance as wildly as you want without fear of smashing anyone in the gizzards. As well as all that, it also has a pretty decent events listing and March 2012 was no exception as it saw the arrival of both Huw Stephens and the boys and girls of Front Magazine.
The Welsh DJ took over the joint to present a night, alongside DZ Deathrays, to brighten up the sound waves of the Shoreditch club night venue. The music included DZ Deathrays live, as well as a gig from Run Walk. With a low stage in close proximity to the crowd, it’s always intimate and in your face and the 6th March 2012 gig was no exception.
As well as the might of the Welshman on the 6th, The Old Blue Last also featured a night by Front Magazine in March. It’s great to see a big magazine’s like Front getting involved in grassroots music. They’re featuring DZ Deathrays too, as well as Hawk Eyes and Eager Teeth Live.
March also saw Peace perform on the 17th and O Children on the 29th. You can check out the full event listing for The Old Blue Last at the link below to fin out more about the latest gigs and events to make their way to on of East London’s most loved music venue:
