eastside events present STIFF LITTLE FINGERS plus special guests. Tickets £22.50

Legendary Northern Irish punk rock act Stiff Little Fingers are keeping the spirit of punk alive and proving that after an iconic 40+ year career, the band is still as vital as ever. “Stiff Little Fingers drew from first-hand experience of their hometown’s Troubles, imbuing their frustration with their island’s inherent, elegiac tunefulness … And the Fingers are still soldiering on, with original singer/guitarist Jake Burns and bassist Ali McMordie joined by guitarist Ian McCallum and drummer Steve Grantley. Like their peers, Stiff Little Fingers give a two-fingered salute to the hypocrisy of the world, but unlike others, their music locates hope amid the rage.”
— Ned Lannamann

Formed by former Sex Pistols Paul Cook and Steve Jones, The Professionals are now Paul Cook, Paul Myers and Tom Spencer, and they’ve released their first album in 35 years, “What in the World”, with the full blessing of Jones. “Never mind Steve Jones, this is the bollocks.” –Classic Rock Magazine

TV Smith was a founding member, singer, and songwriter for the Adverts, who formed in late 1976 and became one of the leading bands in the first wave of British punk rock. TV plays his epic solo shows without a setlist, so every performance contains a unique selection of songs chosen on the night.
