The rising stars of 2018 are performing live this Autumn at one of Birmingham’s best independent venues

Some of the biggest names rising to fame are soon to play Moseley’s The Castle and Falcon, including Girli, The Blinders, Sam Fender, Estrons and more.

After selling our recent gigs including London quartet Teleman, Birmingham’s best independent live music venue has a range of indie and alternative bands coming this Autumn, with most acts rising through the ranks as big names in 2018.

The Castle and Falcon, on Moseley Road, has seen its Autumn kicked off with one of the hottest acts to break through this year, Boy Azooga. This alt/psych group was closely followed by Shrewsbury’s Dan Owen on Saturday, October 13th, a young folk and acoustic solo artist who has gripped the world with his debut album. Coming from further afield are London’s political pop riot Girli on Monday, October 22nd, followed by Manchester’s punk revolution The Blinders on Tuesday, October 23rd.

Closing the month was a completely unique artist, Macka B. A reggae solo artist who has been teaching the world values in wellbeing, kindness and environmental health. Perhaps known for his rhymes about Cucumbers and Kale, Macka B is embarking on tour with the Roots Ragga Band.

November sees perhaps one of the most exciting months for the venue, as a range of genres including ska punk, indie, alternative and rock take the stage. 1990s stars CUD perform on Friday, November 2nd, followed by the eternal summer that is the ska punk ensemble Chainska Brassika on Saturday, November 3rd. Heavily backed by BBC Radio 1, Sam Fender brings his hit material including the powerful single ‘Dead Boys’ on Saturday November 10th.

Welsh rock outfit Estrons are making a triumphant come back to music, showcasing their debut progressive indie album on Thursday, November 15th. Former Oceansize member and Biffy Clyro guitarist Mike Vennart also comes armed with new material for rock fans on Monday, November 19th.

Last, but by no means least are Oh My God, It’s The Church. A name that is holy amongst festival circuits, as this all mighty ensemble will exorcise your right to party with gospel renditions of pop, hip hop and party anthems, complete with wild outfits, choreography and organ played by none other than Sexy Jesus.

The Castle and Falcon can be found at 402 Moseley Road, Birmingham.
