Rockabilly Night Live Presents DIRECT from the U.S.A. - A double bill spectacular with two of the greatest rockabilly acts of all time! This is an invitation for you to join rockabilly fans from all over the UK to ROCK HARD and DANCE LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW! With the energy these bands pump out; there just might not be one!

These rockers may hail from America, but they might as well be time-traveling space cowboys hitting The Passenger Shed with the atomic impact of a meteor at full speed. and SPEED there will be! With blistering guitar pickin’, thumpin’ slap bass and tight drum beats fillin’ up the night, it will be like the roar of super charged hot-rod engine at full blast.

Opening up the show we have Midlands based band, The Deadshots. The Deadshots, bring their own unique energy and style to the stage! This band are full of raw, high energy!

To fill in between these legendary showmen, our very own DJ Rock Ape will keep the energy. If you are a fan of Rockabilly, Psychobilly, old school Rock’n’Roll or anything in between, this a night you don’t want to miss out on!

 

Reverend Horton Heat

Get ready to be converted to the evangelical as the Reverend Horton Heat preach the Gospel of Rock’n’Roll. Experiencing these rockin’ tribal rhythms, that transcend time from the early 1950s way into the future, will transform even the most hardcore rockabilly fan. Get ready for the rockin’ High-Octane, Spaghetti Western Wall of Sound that is everyone’s favorite preacher.

With 11 studio albums to date, these rockers from the great state of Texas, have more than put their mark on history: They have slammed into the history of Rock’n’Roll with meteoric force and pumped pure nitro into the old hot-rod engine of the genre. When they take the stage of The Passenger Shed, they will surely deliver what they preach, in the form of pure, brain-melting guitar solos, wild stage antics, and plenty of un-apologizing attitude! Get ready for the sermon of your life!

 

The Delta Bombers

What do you get if you fuse 1950s Rock’n’Roll with swampy blues, red hot country, and high powered rockabilly? The answer is the highly explosive and by no means safe contraption that has been annihilating stages all over the world for over a decade! This hard touring band has been tearing up crowd after crowd in 26 countries with their take-no-prisoners attitude and super-charged energy, and does not seem to stop for anything or anyone. And they certainly won’t slow down when blowing up The Passenger Shed in Bristol! — Directly from Las Vegas, Nevada, it’s The Delta Bombers!

Their 4 studio albums bear testament to the virtuous musicality of these four rockers, but it’s live on stage that their music really spits flames. From powerful vocal abilities of Chris Moinichen, the scorching guitar riffs of Andrew Himmler, the floor rumbling bass lines of Gregorio Garcia, to the earth shattering drum beats of Micah Malcolm, The Delta Bombers will blow you away with their raw, All-American roots music!

 

The Deadshots

Based out of DeadShot Towers in North Worcestershire, somewhere midway between Redditch and Bromsgrove in the Midlands, this four piece are touring the country lighting up audiences in venues, halls, clubs and fields from Scotland to the South West of England. Playing their own compositions (mostly) along with the occasional cover of a classic and sometimes an unexpected song from anytime from the 1950’s to today. 

Their current album, “Wanted”, was released in January 2019 on Western Star Records. It gained network and international radio play from its first week of release.

DEATHSTARS were formed in Strömstad, Sweden in 2000 – born of a variety of influences ranging from black and death metal, to rock ’n’ roll and industrial. They’ve released four full-length studio albums to date; Synthetic Generation (2003), Termination Bliss (2006), Night Electric Night (2009), and The Perfect Cult (2014). The band has stated that Synthetic Generation was a bit of an experiment and challenge, the members all having come from underground extreme metal bands, which was more familiar territory at that point.Termination Bliss garnered the group immediate attention, the band touring with Cradle Of Filth in 2006 in its wake - whilst follow-up Night Electric Night launched them internationally, lauding them enormous praise and landing them a tour with Rammstein in arenas throughout Europe. Latest album The Perfect Cult saw them continue their impeccable run – welcoming their first ever North American tour, and sadly the departure of Cat Casino, who has now returned to the fold.

Friday 28th May

Academy

Commemorating three-decades of storming rock’n’roll shows in the North, the Academy are very pleased to announce a special celebratory show in the new year from a band who have earned a special place in its history.

On 28th May 2021, the venue will welcome Welsh indie-rock mainstays: FEEDER.

Having blown-away crowds on its turf some 12 times since their formation, The Academy has been a reliable haunt and regular pit-stop for Feeder at all stages of their twisting career. 

From their incendiary first visit as a fledgling grunge upstarts on the Kerrang Twist Tour of 1996 (supporting Lodestar and Crazy Gods), to taking the stage as bonafide world-conquering arena slayers on the ‘Tallulah’ tour of 2018; Feeder have proven themselves time-after-time and are established favourites with the Academy crowd.

Returning to the venue in 2021, expect a roller-coaster ride down memory lane with a set packed with the innumerable anthems that have lined their extraordinary career. With 10 celebrated studio albums

Blancmange

British electronic band Blancmange first broke through in the early 80s with their mix of synthesizers and surrealism, fused in groundbreaking singles such as ‘I Can’t Explain’, ‘Feel Me’, “Living On The Ceiling’, ‘Blind Vision’ and ‘Don’t Tell Me’. The epic synthpop of ‘Waves’ and a witty cover of Abba’s ‘The Day Before You Came’ illustrated a band who were always willing to change and adapt new styles within their electronic framework.

After working on their own projects and film music, they returned in 2011 to great acclaim with their fourth studio release, Blanc Burn. Now, their fifth album Semi Detached, fresh out, demonstrates a darker side of the band compared to some of their previous records. Appropriately enough, the new material was debuted live at shows in an East London art gallery, where long-term Blancmange guitarist David Rhodes let rip with an array of atmospheric sonics echoing his work with the likes of Scott Walker, Japan, Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush and Talk Talk.

Meanwhile, Neil Arthur’s edgy, intense stage persona continues to drive this band forward. As Mojo magazine recently commented: ‘Music Pop Art has seldom been as good.’ A new instrumental album Nil By Mouth has just been released on Blancmange’s own label, Blanc Check Records.
