Jemma Freeman & the Cosmic Something
 + Eve Indigo
 + Milkfiz + DJ Joei Sylvester
Jemma Freeman & the Cosmic Something – Beautifully honeyed yet barbed indie rock / dream pop with on point song craft and sonorous vocals from them wot’s name is on the tin. As they say ‘Outsider dream alt rock’ is the gist, and ‘cosmic songs about introversion, hidden lives, and empowering yourself in the face of adversity’… indeed, super. Eve Indigo – Eve first took to the stage as the ballsy  amped up singer/songwriter on a  neo-glam rock/good old fashioned rock and roll tip, but now Eve Indigo is a crack 3 piece on a mission to make Hair Metal hip…kinda …job done, coz this is truly sassy, funtime, crafted glam punk joy. Partay. Milkfiz – fascinating new band outta Bristol, always a hot bed of creativity, and along with Manchester, the true heartland of post punk. These superbly syncopated sons and daughters of the Severn take all that Pop Group, Glaxo Babies, Maximum Joy heritage and soup it up for some suitably psyched 2020s visions. Ace. Arrive early. You must catch this band.

 + DJs
Tiptoe Apollo – featuring the Roberts sisters on bass and keys, who warmed our cockles in Lockdown, alongside mum and dad with their more-viral-than-Covid Roberts Family Band Smiths singalongs, T.A are about a young a band as we’ve ever had gracing our stage.  But…THEY’RE GETTING OLDER! Hold the front page!! Still very, very young, but now even more talented!…and performing the music of Arctic Monkeys, The Cure, The Reytons and more. An indie pop party supreme. Stonecrown – Grunge meets screamo with Seattle in the ascendant. Hard riffing, 21st century blues bellowing rock for fans of Nirvana, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains Cantered Soul – Strokes cum Killers type upbeat, energised anthems, but thru an ace Irish punk heritage lens (SLF, Undertones) and something of the Manics or Glasvegas too. Lots of soulful intent, whether from the rootsy, gnarly vocal or the intensity of the playing. And …they have a banjo! Superb.

The Cazales
 + Falsedots
 + Vampyra + Winemom + Space Chickens (daytime, finishing 5pm)
The Cazales – Nice punk tinged indie rock with a cool story telling sardonic edge as evinced by their nifty Manics meets The Wedding Present psycho killer tale of a pop gem ‘She Wants You Dead’…neat vid too. Falsedots – so here we are in The Ancestral Seat of Suggs and co. And the influence of Madness is also to be found in the punky reggae of False Dots…or moreover, the shadow of Ian Dury looms large, just as it did over Madness. And what a great shadow to be loomed over and upon…hence the superb fun on offer here. These chaps recently celebrated 45 years in the Biz with a cracking headline show in the Dublin. In support tonight though…versatile lads! Vampyra –  Mixing up old school punk, punk pop, rockabilly and schlock rock to great effect with nice attitude coming thru in the female lead vocal. Hailing from the south eastern parts of Kent, the band released their debut single “Fly my Pretties Fly” in late 2023. Great stuff. Winemom – looking pretty kooky n kool in their Stetson hats, these roots and indie hinged Dublin boy/gal troubadours have an excellent rapport with any audience they get to play in front of …nice work, as demonstrated on new single ‘Neptune’s Seas’ NB Today’s matinee event is ticketed separately-www.wegottickets.com/event/622253  Space Chickens party £5 2pm to 5pm Space Chickens – The Space Chickens are a four piece band from Norf London.

And as a final name drop, drummer Pedro, played with David Bowie at Live Aid, lucky bleeder.

Steeling Scarlett – taking some unusual songs and playing them torch song stylee with the accompaniment of just a jazz guitar (played beautifully by the way). I guess Nouvelle Vague could be a touch stone… DJ til 2am.

The Swagger
 + Brut
 + Sleaze + Dreadful Men
The Swagger– Hazy psychedelic pop which recalls The Mock Turtles and at times Oasis, nicely honed hooky tunes. Recently worked with  producer/drummer Graham Bonnar (Swervedriver/Brian Jonestown Massacre) recording their debut EP at the famous Konk studios owned by The Kinks. Brut- Engaging indie pop with hooks aplenty harks back to 80’s kit like Orange Juice but also late 70’s New Wave, Mink Deville etc, great stuff. Sleaze- Are the ideal band you want to see when you walk into a pub and are providing the sound of broken Britain. The market stalls outside may have swapped the Elastica T-shirts for scented candles nowadays but it seems that inside this bar tonight Britpop has woken up again with a hangover and dodgy stomach. This is the soundtrack to accompany the end of a Tory government visibly on the brink of collapse, fab feet tapping fist-pumping music.

Unknown Pleasures- These guys and their primal, punky, poised and perky take on the incredible Joy Division canon have been doing the rounds as long as Buggerbear…we’re a match made in heaven, haha.  Always an ace night out…yes ‘Ian Curtis’ has adapted the trademark moves a tad since he ahem died and maybe slightly more padded than you recall, and Peter Hook seems to have transmogrified into a goff Yul Bryner etc etc but don’t watch that….a brilliant and lovestruck tribute to adore. Argonaut – punky indie with tood, female fronted, gnarly and noisy but nicely abundant in ear worm pop sensibilities, for fans of The Fall, Sleater Kinney, Stereolab… DJs We Got Killers will hit up a ripe vein of post punk dance floor fun tonight prior to opening up the dance floor doors of delight to whatever your feet demand, so long as it is indeed KILLER.  Kill Bosco – Hooky probing bass lines, uber indie chiming guitars and a keening Manics like melodic appeal. Zippy power-pop ahoy. Violet Blend

Charly Records 50th Birthday Party
 + The Bollock Brothers
 + Special Guests + DJs We Got Killers
You want fabulous institutions that are hitting their 50th Anniversaries this year? We got em…well, Jock McDonald‘s legendary punk techno disco rock and roll agents provocateur The Bollock Brothers may have a couple of years or more to go before they hit the Big Five O- but The Dublin Castle, as we know it,  under the stewardship of the Conlon family celebrates a Golden Anniversary this year- and so does the wonderful Charly Records. Well, let’s have a party and get Jock and co. to headline…sounds like a good plan right?  Charly Records was founded in France in 1974 by Jean-Luc Young, a promoter in his homeland who moved to the UK in 1975. A good time to do so it must be said! Although Charly was originally known mainly for American-originated jazz, rhythm n blues and rock and roll reissues (and other modern oddities, such as the Bollock Brothers!) but has mostly set out it’s stall as an album-oriented “retro” label. With a fantastic roster that produces Americana, blues, funk, gospel, jazz, Latin, popular, rap, reggae, r&b, rock, rockabilly, soul, and ska, Charly has always maintained a much respected, high profile position in the record industry, and many of it’s releases are must have additions to the discerning record collector’s burgeoning shelves. So many wonderful LPs providing a well appointed inroad to classic music of the past….DJs We Got Killers certainly have a few, and will be dipping into them tonight for the post gig party (free entry after 11pm as usual). Tony Bugbear Killer says ‘My favourite Charly Recs releases are the Rare Groove compilations of the late 1980s. Absolute gold at a time when those big tunes were rocking warehouse parties but were hard to find. I’ve worn out two copies of  the amazing “Got To Get Your Own- Some Rare Grooves Vol 1″!…. and you can be sure to expect some cuts off that record tonite, and an all round groovy dance floor experience tonight. Get on it party people…

DB Stewart is a blues rock artist from Seattle, U.S. Country Rock and Pop sensibilities sweeten the bluesology evident in the fine guitar playing, making for an accessible troubadour experience that could please fans of Tom Petty or Steve Earle as much as those of Bukka White. Talented guy.  Sophia Lucia –is an experimental musician, performer, and writer. She is based out of Chicago & Paris. She makes hypnotic and chaotic rock & roll / singer-songwriter music, with punk and theatrical energy. She writes and produces a one-woman show titled, ‘Freak Show Cabaret!’ which is a variety show including (but not limited to) theatre, poetry, dance, performance art, improvisation, and original music. Alternate Root Magazine described Sophia Lucia as, “a rare gem – one of a small band of unique, idiosyncratic artists who forge their own path because, for them, that is the only path which is viable.” Isla Sutherland- Drawing inspiration from musical legends like Tracy Chapman and Joni Mitchell, Isla effortlessly weaves her own compositions into performances that transcend the ordinary. What sets her apart is the profound emotion she infuses into every song, creating a unique and unforgettable musical experience.

Ping Pong Disco
 + The Raven Chords
 + Feast Of The Half Kings + Daddy Those Men Scare Me
Ping Pong Disco – “This masked quartet have some pretty out-there ideas. Take music-making: Write a song in under 10 minutes, play it, and if they can remember how it goes, record it. This works surprisingly well for the mysterious combo – from either Dundee or London – who adopt disguises of duck, baby, rabbit and pig, and may be planning a bank heist later….”…all true…check ‘Fat Aladdin’s ‘meandering Nile Rodger-style guitar lines and hedonistic Happy Mondays vibe’ and ‘I Need A Drink’s pounding teutonic beats that channel Front 242 or Nitzer Ebb, while the 10 tracks also recall early Kasabian and Bowie’s funkier period. Meanwhile, ‘Scratcher’s nifty sounds and samples have a Sleaford Mods-do-hip-hop vibe and ’Super Vegetable’ recalls PiL’s collaboration with Leftfield. And a WORLD OF TWIST fan’s delight to we’ll warrant. The Raven Chords –  magnificently mournful  Grunge/Americana rocking joint Boy/girl vocals with a Mark Lanegan via a grunged up Giant Sand vibe. Feast Of The Half Kings- Hyperactive rock three-piece, ‘Feast of the Half-Kings’, brings energy, romance and chaos to the table, alongside their own brew of hectic noise. Daddy Those Men Scare Me – our very favourite suburban punk pop ironists go way back to the early days of Bugbear- and now they’ve written a few new songs too! Then again why mess with a set list full of quality witty items like ‘Mass Consumption’, ‘Magic Mushroom Man’ and ‘Teenagers’ (Cunts!)…wonderful. For fans of The Stranglers, Squeeze, Half Man Half Biscuit and Ian Dury…

Jackals – high energy supercharged pop-neo soul concoction with a funky, syncopated feel that makes for a proper party vibe replete with dancing. We liked this band so much we put them on a Dublin Castle residency last year, and it’s wonderful to welcome them back, after what we know has been a traumatic few months for them. The healing power of their excellent music is not to be underestimated…effortless,  high energy infectious grooves, impressive songcraft and great individual performances . Superb. The Nightfalls – Groovy fuzz driven garage rock, shades of late 60’s U.S Nuggets but also your more flamboyant, British psych pop…great stuff. Idyllic –  Anthemic indie fare played with Scally pop panache. Formed in Liverpool in 2022, Idyllic have played over 50 live shows and have released three singles which are available on Spotify and Apple Music. DJs We Got Killers – pumping up the dancefloor til late. All Killer, No Filler.

The Who at RNR Book Club
 + Author Richard Houghton
 + Q and A + Wardour Street perform as THE WHO
 + DJ Baba O'Really
This afternoon’s special matinee RocknRoll Book Club welcomes back Mr Spenwood Books himself, hardest working author/publisher in showbiz, Mr Richard Houghton…and today Shepherds Bush comes to Camden Town, coz it’s all about The Who… This Guitar Has Seconds To Live: A People’s History Of The Who, is an oral history of the band who were the first and original Mod guitar group, and who evolved into the kickingest of kick ass arena filling rock phenomena. They smashed Rickenbackers, hotel rooms and occasionally each other. Never before had a band caused such wanton destruction on stage. Never before had a band smashed their instruments into pieces, or used feedback as a weapon to manipulate their audiences. But there had never been a band like The Who before, and no other band has ever brought the same level of danger, excitement, chaos and sheer volume to live performance. From singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townshend and bassist John Entwistle starting out as The Deetours in 1962, until the untimely death of their legendary drummer Keith Moon in 1978, this is the story of over 300 explosive who concerts told through more than 500 eyewitness accounts. It charts their rise from their West London roots to become one of Britain’s top chart acts (with 14 top ten hits) and a gig schedule that saw them play virtually everywhere in the UK before conquering North America and the world via mammoth concert tours and attention-grabbing appearances at the Monterey, Woodstock and Isle of Wight festivals. The Who’s albums Tommy, Who’s Next and Quadrophenia all rank in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Their legacy is undiminished by time, and the sound of feedback runs through this book, as fans and admirers of the band recount seeing them in action through a series of fascinating and heartwarming anecdotes and photographs. More than 290 different Who gigs are recalled by fans, from their mod roots through to the 2000s… Tony Gleed talks to Richard Houghton about all things Who on stage, with a Q and A to follow and books to be bought and signed. Buy one, buy three. Soon be Christmas. We then complete this Whofest the best way possible…with a long set of ‘60s /‘70s classics performed by confirmed Who enthusiasts’ the excellent Wardour Street. From the igniting spark of The Who, straight through the ’60s mod explosion (Small Faces, The Kinks, Spencer Davis), and into the mod revival (Jam, Secret Affair, Purple Hearts, Chords, Lambrettas), plus a sprinkling of new wave and 2-tone. Wardour Street are the real deal Mod covers band…pure Fred Perry-adorned modernist joy!

The first gig was at Oriel Youth Centre in Northolt with Gary Numan’s Tubeway Army! (who apparently are also still going…) on December 12th 1977. Gigs soon followed at The White Hart Acton, including one with The Ruts. And they’ve really never stopped gigging in one form or another. Great to have them back in the DC tonight, a much beloved institution of the London Punk fraternity.

Rory & The Island
 + DJ Sue
Rory & The Island – Irish singer-songwriter Rory & the Island has had the best part of 20 Top 20 iTunes singles in Ireland in the past decade.  Rory’s journey began as lead singer of indie-rock band The Revs, who alongside being hotly tipped by the likes of U2, found themselves topping the Irish charts with two top 5 albums and a string of successful tours that made waves throughout Ireland, Europe and even reached Australia with a top 30 single – as well as beating Damien Rice, Relish and Six to take both the Meteor IRMA award and the Hot Press Award for Best Newcomer. After the bands split in 2007, Rory moved to a remote island in the Canaries where he opened a live music venue ‘The Island Bar’. And the rest is His Story!… It was there the Donegal songwriter performed weekly residency shows building up a following of people from all over the world that would travel to the island to come and see him perform. It was also here that Rory & The Island was born – with Rory Gallagher beginning his solo project under the name to avoid any confusion with the Ballyshannon/Cork Blues Legend. Two albums later, Rory & The Island independently earned himself 8 top 30s, 2 top 10s and a Number 1 single in the Irish Charts alongside performing all over the UK and Ireland supporting the likes of Ocean Colour Scene, Feeder and Alabama 3. 2019 saw Rory leave the island, return back to Ireland and extensively tour, filling out rooms around the UK and Ireland with his first London show at The Dublin Castle selling out within 48 hours of going on sale. Rory now divides his time between the Island, Ireland and the UK and we’re more than stoked to welcome him back tonight. Rory is a one man hit machine like no other, a veritable human jukebox you could say, but you get all the human passion and fun alongside the unstoppable cavalcade of bangers in a 2 hour plus show…its all done with immense charm and such infectious affection. A must see show.

The Dirty Strangers
 + Soho Dukes
 + Pelikan Rouge + DJs
The Dirty Strangers–  if you don’t know by now the relationship to Britain’s biggest band (Keith and Ronnie especially) with this legendary London rock roll band then it’s time to get from under that Rolling Stone and take notice of Dirty Al and co. Lots of Stones influences for sure but the Strangers put a great pop sensibility into their blues, and administer growly rocknroll with a hint of punk and a nod to power pop. Excellent band. Sure to be a great party. Soho Dukes – “World renowned, critically acclaimed, electrically powered, rascally rock and roll”…wouldn’t disagree there! The perfect accompaniment for yer Dirty Strangers too. Pelikan Rouge – Hard rock and fizzy commercial pop melded together beautifully. A nice straight down the middle melodic vocal that has more of a new wave vibe, so it’s a bit of an enigmatic mix, but truly works well, and they’re all really good players. From Ayr, Scotland. Please give them a big Dublin Castle welcome tonight.

After sold out shows in Europe this summer the band have set their sights on an even bigger tour for 2024! Aswell as it being the 25th Anniversary of The battle of Los Angeles it would have also been the 25th anniversary of this mega multi band tour that never came to fruition, sadly… Beast Decoys have also quickly established themselves as one of the UK’s leading tributes, as an ode to one of the greatest hip hop acts to grace the scene, these 3 Mc’s & one DJ not only bring the high energy you have come to expect from the Beastie Boys but also the unique look that they brought with them too. Cypress Hill are homaged by “Cyprish Hill”, whose act is based upon the Live at the Fillmore concert from 2000 featuring 2 mc’s, a live band and DJ. So a great night in store for sure.

Dream City Filmclub !
 + Miraculous Mule
 + Simon Breed + DJs
 + Special Guests
Dream City Film Club – Back in the naughty Nineties, Bugbear Promotions‘ daily grind often collided with the work and wonders of Neo Gothic Boho rock marvels Dream City Film Club (tellingly named after an infamous porn cinema embroiled in a tragic arson attack). Both our house band, of sorts, Penthouse and DCFC (equivalent status with the Bull and Gate) enjoyed the most gnarly of dark rocknroll iconography and pastimes, with both signed, at more or less the same time, to Beggars Banquet Recs. And lo, much fun, fear and fuckology ensued…it was certainly rock and bleeding roll writ large. Wikipedia takes it up from here –  ‘Dream City Film Club were an English, North London-based rock band, founded in July 1995. Their sound encompassed tortured lovelorn balladry, avant–garde flourishes, Tin Pan Alley, straightforward rock and gospel yearnings in both lyrics and subject matter… The group disbanded in 1999. Frontman and songwriter Michael J. Sheehy subsequently recorded three solo albums for Beggar’s Banquet and two for Glitterhouse, and has subsequently fronted Saint Silas Intercession and Miraculous Mule with his brother Patrick. During the early 2000s, guitarist Alex Vald worked as half of experimental pop band Datapuddle, whilst in 2015, Sheehy and Vald reunited as the pop-noir duo United Sound of Joy. In a retrospective biography of the group, AllMusic called them “one of England’s most underrated bands of the 1990s.” ‘ Amen… 25 years on original bass ace and ex Breed man Andrew Park reunites with Michael and Alex to perform this one night only must see event – the return of Dream City Film Club to the stage, and in the Dublin Castle too- we are honoured to say. Yes, a remarkable happening. With an all too rare appearance from Simon Breed and a headline performance from Miraculous Mule, DJs and other exciting additions no doubt yet to be announced, this matinee into night time event is a must attend feature on your twisted pop calendar.

But to really top it off the band’s lead vocalist sings with a passion and rasp, you can’t help but love. Walts Frozen Head – Prog and psych  inform these guys rattling good indie rock, with a bit of a Cardiacs influence perhaps, plus XTC and King Gizzard… really interesting and arresting stuff. Monumental – Mod/indie with some of the bite and edge of the more post punk end of The Jam. Nifty tunes and in yer face tood .

Laid - a tribute to James
 + Special Guests
 + DJs
Laid-superb James tribute…On Saturday 19th May 2018 Mike Hadfield, lead singer of LAID, had a VIP ticket to the sound check prior to the James gig at King George’s Hall Blackburn. During the question and answer session Mike grabbed the microphone and asked the band their thoughts of him setting up a tribute band to honour their music. After deliberating as a band, Saul spoke for them saying “Go for it!” and Tim Booth gave his blessing. Mike set to work gathering the troops to create a band of fans for fans – Laid – a tribute to James.  Laid have received high praise everywhere they play. As well as rising to the occasion of a 1600 strong audience at Shiiine-On Weekender and performing on the bigger stages, they also love the more intimate setting of a smaller crowd within a 150-200 capacity venue. Committed to getting the same energy and performance that James produce onstage and getting that live sound just right, the band have marked their territory as the leading tribute to one of the best bands to come out of Manchester.  Playing all the hits including “Sit Down”, “Come Home”, “Laid”, “She’s a Star”, “Tomorrow”, “Getting Away With It”, and “Sometimes” they are one band not to be missed! Hope they find time to do “Hymn from A Village” mutters this old raincoat wearer… Well we could always play it…We Got Killers spin the big hitting party choons til 2am. Expect a fair bit bit of Manc made dance floor finery tonite for sure!

AKA The Syndicate – AKA The Syndicate released their self-titled debut album, full of original ska, reggae and punk influenced music in 2021 which saw one song stand out, capturing the zeitgeist of the times. In response, the group pieced together a remote music video, an anthem of isolation titled ‘Hands Up (Who’s Coming With Me?) which was followed by the moody    ” Two Sides Of The City” Their debut album was described by Scootering Magazine as “A pop-tinged reggae album that brings to mind a wide variety of other bands, from Madness at their most successful to very early UB40, and maybe even a hint of No Doubt thrown in for good measure.”  Their second album ‘It’s Our World‘ was released in 2023 to rave reviews and the same can be described of their live shows, but the only way to know this is buy a ticket and catch AKA The Syndicate live…and luckily we have the perfect venue to enjoy a band steeped in ska and reggae and 2 Tone music. Ladies and Gentlemen… AKA The Syndicate in The Dublin Castle!

The bands dem… anarchistwood – taking inspiration from Detroit ’60s, ’70s proto punk (indeed have been known to play a Destroy All Monsters number) as much as the Pistols packin’ ’76 SEX scene and post Crass ’80s Anarcho satire… Frank Cutter and crew know how to enrich the audience with fabulous, head turning, transgressive punk rock, and play it with a supercool ease. Punkish pranksterism never got so sassy. Effortlessly brilliant, massively entertaining. Their uber neato version of ‘White Punks On Dope’ (‘Black Punks On Speed’! hollers bassist Mitch!) is a wonderful inclusion in recent sets too. Bug Central – Bug Central are a punk band from London, England formed in 1996 and still playing with the original line up of Noodles Romanov (guitar / vocals), Ben Blasphemy (bass) and Charlie Bug of Riot/Clone, Pig Ignorance at the drums… Fierce and rumbling proper PROPER punk. SLapPeR – “the most beautiful sound you’ve ever heard” might sound like a bold statement, but you know what… beauty is in the eye of the beholder and… behold! Beauty! With echoes of neo classical, punk industrial and pronk pop gothic, there’s a lot going on and it’s all head crunchingly, psychedelically enigmatic and exciting. With DJ action til 2am…
