The Hubs Christmas party at the OPEN club room, Norwich, with Solko, Lunch Money, OdjBox, The Woodland Creatures, Jack Pout & the Dirt Level, 19 December 2013. Review and photos.
The ever generous Hubs Records laid on an extensive Christmas party at OPEN on this damp December Thursday, running from 9pm-2am. Opening the music was Jack Pout and the Dirt Level, playing some of the best of their Getting Off The Ground album as well as a new track. With Robbie back in Norwich for this one they seemed to be loving their time on stage and so did those in the audience. Highlights for me were Urban Schoolboy, and Perhaps I’m Sick.
Christina and Lizzy of the Woodland Creatures were next, playing a lovely set which had the new addition of accordion for a number or two today. I think everyone loved them!
Lunch Money were the penultimate live act tonight, not a band I know at all but their jazz heavy style was going down a storm with the crowd, noticably Ash at the front of the audience 🙂 I particularly enjoyed the final number where they all played percussion.
And so it was Ash’s turn next on stage with Solko, who played a typically joyful and enjoyable set with everything everyone wanted to hear in a reasonably full OPEN club room.
Unfortunately, after a very long evening I headed home after Solko’s set and so missed the dj set by OdjBox
