After seeing out 2013 in ruinously drunken style at How Does It Feel To Be Loved in London, Team Unpop return home to the Wee Red Bar for our first night of 2014. This year what has come to be our annual Valentine's/ Anti-Valentine's Bop is going to actually fall for the first time on the big day itself, Friday 14th February!
After romancing your date over dinner, where better to take him or her than for a night of crazed indiepop dancing afterwards? Seduction is 100% guaranteed with a selection of our most sexual records. Plus there will be cake.
Alternatively, if you happen to be dateless this Valentine's, come and dance with other similarly hot and single/ disenchanted and cynical local indiekids. There will be mildly offensive biscuits and balloons and excellent anti-romantic tunes and it sure beats staying in in your pyjamas and being all pathetically Bridget Jones about the whole thing, doesn't it?
We certainly like to think so anyway.
Unpop Mixtapes and badges for the first 50 people!
Expect to hear the likes of Belle & Sebastian, Felt, Hefner, The Clean, Orange Juice, Kenickie, Jens Lekman, 'Allo Darlin', Tullycraft, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Pavement, Talulah Gosh, Plastic Bertrand, The Aislers Set, A Smile And A Ribbon, The Gingham Mittens, The Magnetic Fields, The Pastels, 'Everywhere', Bearsuit, Los Campesinos!, Eux Autres, Standard Fare, Bis, The Smiths, ballboy, Helen Love, The Spook School, Pulp, The Bobby McGees, The Hidden Cameras and many, many more.
Wear your heart on your sleeve and shoes you can shimmy in and we'll look forward to seeing you there!
