THE LATHUMS + Special Guests – 15th Nov 21 **SOLD OUT**

Britain’s most exciting new band, The Lathums reveal their biggest shows to date, hitting the road in 2021. Having sold out previous hometown shows in 60 seconds, all tickets for upcoming dates are set to go on general sale on Fri 31 July 2020 at 10am.

The emergence of the melodic indie band from Wigan with heart-quickening live intensity, near-spiritual positive energy and literary influences (Essential listening: Fight On – influenced by tales of the French Resistance) has thrilled those waiting patiently for new heroes of emotive guitar music that means everything. An 18-month journey from playing bars to selling out their first headline tour in just one day, signing to Island Records on the way, made for a breathless first chapter. With the plot warming up to the point of overheating, the next, exciting episode gets underway on even bigger stages.

The Lathums’ beg-for-a-ticket live shows have become legendary amongst those ‘in the know’ fans enjoying the ride as it has gathered pace. Delivering pure joy and tall tales, the four talented friends from the overlooked fringes of Greater Manchester netted streaming figures in their millions with a string of independent releases prior to signing their deal with Island. It’s a journey immortalised in their short film; The Memories We Make, with a compilation EP of the same name flying into the UK Album Charts at Number 14 in on release in July.

This is a rescheduled date, all tickets remain valid.

Refunded tickets will go back on sale Wednesday 31st March at 10am via The Sugarmill.

THANK F#%K FOR THAT!

Now, we don’t want to jinx it, but it’s finally looking like a return to some sort of normality is in sight, so we thought we’d mark it with a party.

For most of us, the last year has been one of the hardest we’ve ever experienced. Some of us have lost loved ones, we’ve all had to sacrifice meeting our friends and family in order to keep everyone safe. Some people have lost jobs, and we’ve had to fight to ensure The Sugarmill survived this crisis. But we’ve made it through, and we cannot wait to see you all on our dancefloor once again.

By the time we get to June, it will have been 15 months since we last held and Electric club night, which considering it has run every week since 1996 is a pretty long time. So it’s only right and proper that the first night back is an Electric night.

DJ Eddie Kerr in the main room playing the best indie/alternative anthems. Dave Jessiman in Room 2 playing pop punk, emo and heavy party tunes.

Mike Sampson is on the roof playing the best new music and cult classics.

 

10pm – 3am

 

ADVANCE TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT. LIMITED TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR ON THE NIGHT ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS.

Strictly Over 18s only/ ID Required

THE K’S + Special Guests – 2nd July

 

Welcome to the world of The K’s. If you’re familiar with one of the biggest underground success stories in rock & roll, make yourself at home. If you haven’t encountered their impassioned bangers, catch up: these four young men are a word-of-mouth phenomenon that’s rapidly becoming too huge to ignore.

The K’s have sold out the 1,500-capacity Manchester Ritz and will headline the 2,300-capacity Academy in the city on their next tour. They’ve caused the tent to be closed at Kendal Calling, with hundreds locked out trying to join the 2,000 fans within. Their streams are comfortably in the millions. Not bad for a band who’ve only released four songs on streaming and have swerved the attentions of the mainstream music press.

On the surface, the appeal of The K’s seems simple: embodying the relatable frustrations of everyday Britain and its zero hours economy, yearning for a better life in escapist anthems like epic next single Landmines and breakthrough tune Glass Towns. But if creating timeless thrills really was so simple, other bands would rack up so many streams and routinely sell out tours, thanks to the frenzied fan community the band has nurtured. Their gigs are a guaranteed riot, but that shouldn’t overlook the sophistication that gives The K’s the immediately identifiable blueprint all special bands soon develop. Debut single Sarajevo is one of the few rock & roll songs to namecheck Austro-Hungary, notching up over 1.5 million streams in the process.

It’s clear The K’s are going to keep growing, a cult sensation ready to blossom in the mainstream. It’s an irresistible, irrefutable spirit, welcoming to anyone who wants to escape into a better, more hopeful world. Come on in, just watch out for the landmines.

Tickets on sale now via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania Skiddle or Gigantic.

THE WENDY JAMES BAND (ex Transvision Vamp) + The Kings Pistol + Crying Beauty Queens – 28th Aug

We’re pleased to welcome the iconic WENDY JAMES to The Sugarmill.

She is most recognised as the front-woman of iconic 80s alternative rock band Transvision Vamp, which enjoyed chart success in the late 1980s with a string of hits including Baby I Don’t Care, I Want Your Love and Revolution Baby.

Her sexually charged and rebellious image won her a huge following of devoted fans, including Miley Cyrus who stated she loved James’ look and sound.

Following the band’s split in 1991, James went on to collaborate with a number of music legends including Elvis Costello who wrote a full album’s worth of material for her, which formed her first solo album “Now Ain’t the Time for Your Tears” in 1993.

Her 2nd solo album “The Price of the Ticket” was released in 2016 and her band at the time comprised of rock royalty such as James Williamson (Iggy and the Stooges), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith) and James Sclavunos (Nick Cave and the Badseeds, Sonic Youth and the Cramps)

A new album will be, available, released just prior to this tour.
Armed with a catalogue of new material, the audacious vamp will be rocking The Sugarmill with a full live band where she will sing a host of old favourites as well as tracks from her latest and previous solo albums.

Tickets on sale now via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania Skiddle or Gigantic.
