Keeping it live and loud in January

Have your say

A quiet January?

There’s no such thing at the Blue Room, with the live music continuing unabated this month.

So forget sleeping off the festive excesses (or the hole they have left in your wallet) and get down to Church Street for another live and loud treat this weekend.

Up and coming Preston band Drawing Lines (pictured) are the headliners this weekend – bringing their lively brand of indie rock to the Fylde coast.

The band have built up quite a reputation around their home town, supporting Blackpool’s own Jekyll at the Adelphi back in November and are tipped as ‘one to watch’ this year.

Support is yet to be confirmed but the music starts at 9pm and entry is free.

If that’s got your appetite for music going then there’s plenty more on at the Blue Room this month.

The Empress will be headlining the Church Street venue next Saturday evening.

Blackpool born-and-bred the indie-rockers are regulars on the local music scene and will be supported by three-piece The Dots, playing their own songs along with covers from bands like The Courteeners, The Libertines and The Stone Roses.

There’s plenty more to come this month with Monsters as Humans stopping off on January 24 as part of their north-west wide tour.

Want to know what the Lancashire four-piece are about?

You can download their new EP at www.monstersashumans.bandcamp.com/releases.

And there’s a grand finale to the month with The Cheeky Keys returning to their spiritual home.

It promises to be a night not to be missed – support is yet to be announced.

Finally, don’t forget every Sunday is open mic night.

Take your guitars, songs, poetry or comedy. There’s a free drink in it for all performers!

* There is live music in South Fylde this weekend too with the Station Tavern in Lytham hosting two nights of music.

Covers are very much the offering from Torpedo Vegas on Friday night churning out the modern hits. Then on Saturday night there’s a chance to step back to the sixties with The Rockits.
