Don’t Die Just Yet! finish with stella line-up
For over 4 years we’ve been treated to a plethora of cutting edge gigs and DJs thanks to the Don’t Die Just Yet! nights, starting back in 2006 at the low-key Goulbourne Pub and then expanding out to their regular gigs at Central Station and even across the UK at several shows.
The promoters, Ross Roberts and Matty Webber, have now sadly decided to hang up their gig boots. They’ve sought to bring some of the most innovative up-and-coming acts to the area, creating shows that combine critically-acclaimed headliners as well as providing a platform for local bands and artists to support them.
Their constant hard work won them praise from both the national press and the more local, Radio Wales’ Adam Walton supported them constantly and The Guardian newspaper gave them a nod and not forgetting their monthly features on Bethan Elfyn’s Radio 1 show, who coincidentally is leaving her show at the end of the year.
It only seems right that the last ever DDJY! should be something quite special. Tomorrow evening, Ross and Matty have, for the third time, The Charlatans singer Tim Burgess playing an exclusive DJ set following the bands’ recent lengthy UK tour.
Live performances come from London punk band, and NME Radar tour guests, Flats, and there will also be a very special performance from super-group Patent Saints, who feature members of DDJY! favourites S.C.U.M, Selfish Cunt and Bo Ningen – expect some brooding dark wave electronica.
Local support comes from two of DDJY!’s most favoured local bands, The Revolutionary Spirit and Mowbird and of course for the last time, DJ sets from the Don’t Die Just Yet! curators.
Tickets are £7 and includes free entry to the Indie Rock & Roll club night afterwards, doors are 7:30pm. Get down and support the DDJY! swansong as you probably won’t see such an eclectic night like this around these parts for a while, is anyone going to pick up the baton? Probably not.
