Baba Yaga's Hut & DHP Present:
Rocket Recordings 20
March 9/10/11 — The Garage
Weekend tickets £60
2018 sees the Bristol/London based record label Rocket Recordings turn 20. The label is famous for introducing the world to the sounds of Goat, Gnod, Teeth of the Sea, White Hills, Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation, Gnoomes etc. The label has also been responsible for releasing classic albums by the likes of Hey Colossus, Shit & Shine, The Heads, Oneida, Ufomammut and many many others.
To celebrate this landmark, Rocket Recordings are teaming up with DHP and Baba Yaga's Hut to host a very special weekender featuring appearances from most of Rocket's current roster of bands. The event will take place at London's famous 'The Garage' in Highbury & Islington.
We are happy to share with you the day splits for our Rocket Recordings Twenty event which is being held at The Garage in London on 9, 10, 11 March plus day tickets are now available to buy.
But before we reveal who is playing on what day we have one bit of sad news.
We are extremely saddened to reveal that Hills have had to pull out of our Rocket Twenty event. We know that like us you were all very excited to see the bands first ever UK club show but they have informed us that due to extreme personal reasons they cannot make it in March.
However, we do have some great news…
Zimpel Ziolek added to the bill
We are humbled to reveal that the great Polish duo Zimpel Ziolek are going to join our party. If you are uninitiated with Zimpel Ziolek – they made one of Rocket's favourite records of 2017 and The Quietus made their S/T album their No.2 Album of the Year. So to have them play their first ever UK show at Rocket Twenty is a massive honour and we are ecstatic to be able to see them live. Listen to (and immediately buy) their stunning album here: instantclassic.bandcamp.com/album/zimpel-zio-ek
