Live Superego bring reverb-strewn hooks to Big Indie Big Nights

It was a packed-out crowd at Two Tribes.

Here at DIY, we’ve been teaming up with record label Big Indie for a new monthly live music night, the appropriately titled Big Indie Big Nights, where we put on a host of new artists that we’re very excited about indeed.

Taking place each month at Two Tribes Brewhouse and Tap Room, in Tileyard Studios, close to King’s Cross and DIY HQ, we’ll be putting on one band each month for the very reasonable price of £0.

Last month saw Hartlepool’s Para Alta take to the stage for the second edition.

At our most recent night, Midlands-based four-piece Superego performed a set full of catchy, reverb-strewn hooks to a packed-out crowd. Fusing together scuzzy guitars and impassioned vocals, the band gave an impressive performance despite being relatively new to the game. On debut single ‘Sleep’, which was recorded with Bill Ryder-Jones, the band whipped up a heavy, psychedelic haze.

For our final edition of Big Indie Big Nights, we’ll be joined by London garage punks Thee MVPs. Already a respected force, having been tipped by US lynchpins Burger Records alongside tours with Metz, Together Pangea and more, they’ll be releasing their debut LP later this year. Tickets are free and will be available soon on a first come, first served basis.
