Curtain Call: Sports Team to join Cut Ribbons & Tall Ships for Curtain Call 2016

Sports Team to join Cut Ribbons & Tall Ships for Curtain Call 2016

The London six-piece will be opening proceedings at the Queen of Hoxton next week.

London newcomers Sports Team - who played one of our DIY Presents… shows alongside Bellevue days just a few weeks back - are the third and final act to be added to the line-up for the latest instalment of DIY & Jägermeister’s Curtain Call.

The six-piece may not currently have any tracks online, but they’ve already earned quite the live reputation, making them a perfect addition to the East London bill, alongside Cut Ribbons and Tall Ships. They’ll be playing at the Queen of Hoxton next week.

They’ll be the final act to join this month’s Curtain Call, which sees us continuing to support new bands as they journey to the top. Taking the meaning of ‘the road to success’ quite literally by basing itself on the iconic Curtain Road - home to many iconic labels, studios and venues - Curtain Call is about providing bands the opportunity - whether that be through recording, making videos or playing gigs - to make their next step really count.

The third round of Curtain Call gigs takes place on Wednesday 23rd March and tickets for the show are on sale now exclusively from TicketWeb, so snap them up quick. The show is 18+ and ticket holders will be required to bring ID.

“Our shows are always lively, despite the crowds on the guitar scene being pretty glum,” the band told us. “To be honest most of us would rather be playing a popular genre, but our mums bought us guitars instead of Logic Pro - we just need to learn how to play them now.”
