DIY Presents Hello 2018 (YOWL, Drahla, Crewel Intentions), The Old Blue Last, London January 9, 2018

Hotel Lux and Sistertalk will also play the first show of next year’s series.

We know everyone’s eyes and stomachs are on Christmas at the moment, but we’ve got a real post-turkey treat for you next January.

Our our yearly smorgasbord of banging new bands - this year entitled Hello 2018 because, y’know, it’ll be 2018 - is back, and if we’re honest, the line-ups are absolutely smashing.

We’ll be bedding down at London’s Old Blue Last for four Tuesday nights throughout January (that’s the 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th) and bringing you all the new music you could ever want. And yes, don’t you worry: the shows are all free entry, as ever.

Kicking things off on the 9th are gritty London punks YOWL and equally exciting Leeds trio Drahla, along with Crewel Intentions, Hotel Lux and Sistertalk.

Boy Azooga, Sports Team, JW Ridley and new Cannibal Hymns signings Underwater Boys keep things rolling on the 16th before Horsey, Whenyoung and more play the 23rd and A House In The Trees (along with a super secret headliner TBA - fancy!) close things out on the 30th.

So cancel your Tuesday night plans (and maybe Wednesday mornings too) and we’ll see you in January.

Tuesday 9th January:

YOWL
Drahla
Crewel Intentions
