Tickets sold out in just 90 minutes when Lords were announced to be playing a show at Dubrek on 3 December 2017.
Going on sale at 9pm on 3 August by 11.30pm all tickets had sold out for the matinee show which will see Leeds band Bilge Pump and Derbyshire art rock band Crimewolf in support. It’s the second show to be announced and sell out quickly for Dubrek recently, with tickets for their Part Chimp show going in 18 hours last week.
Announcing the show Dubrek wrote of Lords, “We had the pleasure of recording two albums and two singles for these gentlemen over the years but ultimately their live shows are a thing to behold. A melting pot of Captain Beefheart, Led Zep, ZZ Top and The Groundhogs; they embody all the best bits of classic rock and mutate into something new and uplifting.”
Crimewolf have just completed recording of their debut album at Dubrek and release is slated in time for the December gig date.
Speaking to Storge about Part Chimp tickets selling out Dubrek Studios owner Jay Dean said, “It’s great when folk in Derby are excited to see and support great underground music such as Part Chimp.
“We’re working hard to bring both new and established left field music to the city, such Living Body on 11 August, and Sly & the Family Drone on the 25 August. Having the Part Chimp show sell out within 18 hours makes us feel we’re getting it right and that there is an appetite here for something a bit different in a setting that isn’t traditional as a venue.”
It’s not the only venue enjoying success at the moment with the Hairy Dog seeing a big crowd for Teenage Bottlerocket on 2 August, and tickets for the Wolf Alice date at The Venue this month selling out quickly too.
In what we’re calling the ‘creative quarter’ Dubrek opened last year in its new location on Beckett Street. A multi-purpose space in the style of Andy Warhol’s Factory as well as the live music space it has rehearsal rooms, is a studio, has a cafe / bar and gallery space, and a number of art and maker spaces too. While somewhat neglected in regeneration schemes the area between Central Library and the Museum along the Wardwick, up Beckett Street and toward Abbey Street is growing into a vibrant and vital area for music and culture in the city.
