The Facemelter takes place at The Black Heart on the first Friday of every month and features prog, metal, post-rock, post-hardcore, some of that twiddly tech stuff and general alternative heaviness. The lineups vary from month to month, so check out our upcoming events and find out more about the bands.

Forget everything you think you know about jazz. This night celebrates the influence of jazz over funk, rock, hip hop and electronica and features a huge range of forward-thinking jazz fusion bands. We’re currently looking for a new venue with the perfect vibe to host these bands in and are happy to take our time and not rush it. If you have any ideas then please do get in touch.

Special Events

If an artist (or label)’s music or vision doesn’t fit into one of our regular nights, we’ll create a bespoke evening for them. Whether it’s an album launch, collaboration or just a one-off gig, we love it all and will support special artists in any way we can.


Whispers and Hurricanes is our night of down-tempo bands and modern-day twists on original folk, world music, contemporary classical and acoustic artists.
