March highlights – Live at Albert’s Shed
Live music in Shrewsbury just stepped up a gear at Albert’s Shed, Shrewsbury with the our diverse line-up to date.
See in the first day of the month with Bristol’s ‘The Scribes‘, one of the UK’s finest hip-hop acts on the circuit. Their mix of contemporary lyricism, golden age beats and in your face stage presence has attracted much attention, being named one of ’30 best live shows at Glastonbury’. Support comes from Shrewsbury’s very own DJ D-Dope.
On the 3rd of March, we have a Sunday special with VU to celebrate what would have been Lou Reed’s 77th birthday.
As always, Wednesday is Albert’s Songwriter Showcase, a night which brings together the hottest performers in Shropshire to celebrate original songwriting, laying the path for future dancefloor anthems.
The second weekend in the month begins with The Swing Hoppers, the first time we’ve had electro-swing in the house and we can’t wait. Support comes from DJ General News. To follow we have Housejammerz on Saturday 9th March, making a welcome return to Albert’s Shed with a live band rendition of house classics and ’90s/00s club hits.
St Patrick’s Day weekend features Captain Accident and the Disasters, who are probably the hottest property in the UK reggae scene right now. Followed by Notorious J.I.G, mixing the hottest breaks from old school and modern hip hop, disco and funk with blistering traditional tunes on fiddle and accordion. Sunday is St Patricks Day and we see out the festival weekend with Chris Greve playing traditional Irish and Celtic jigs.
Fri 22nd March sees a homecoming welcome for Beth Prior and her collective, expect reggae/dub booming out of Albert’s speakers, but take note, this event will sell out. Get your tickets before it’s too late.
A one-off Monday special on gives our interactive quiz night a bit of extra flair with one night only compare Chris Arnold who will also perform his stand-up comedy powerpoint driven show featuring plenty of silliness, songs, videos and the occasional interpretive dance with a pair of panpipes.
And then UnrealBlood, the Royal Blood tribute sees out the month with an explosive clattering of drums and bass on Friday 29th March 2019. While Albert doesn’t normally book tribute acts, these boys are a sight to behold.
DON’T FORGET. We put on live entertainment 7 days a week, take a look at What’s on in Shrewsbury.
