Youth Man at The Dark Horse
Tight, raucous and most certainly rowdy, Birmingham’s thrash happy Youth Man unleash their blitz like Afro-punk mayhem on The Dark Horse tonight. We highly recommend the self-proclaimed sex punk trio’s cracker of an EP ‘Wax’, all buzz saw guitars and raging melodies across five blistering tracks. Check out the video to killer song Fat Dead Elvis here.

Peaky Party at The Bull’s Head
If you missed last week’s red carpet launch of the new BBC series of Peaky Blinders then you would have missed out on The Garrison makeover for The Bull’s Head. Don’t make the same mistake this weekend; don your best Thomas Shelby look and indulge in themed cocktails, Garrison Old Ale and live music. If you pull of the Peaky Blinders look convincingly enough get a pint of Davenports at 1920s prices.
