Firstly this week, Victorious Festival is only three weeks away and the stage times have already been announced.
Some – like me – might be gutted having to choose between the likes of Rudimental and Bloc Party on the Saturday but it looks like being another fantastic year of live music for Portsmouth! Grab the details at victoriousfestival.co.uk.
The weekend starts off tonight with the return of Underground South Movement at Acapulco on Albert Road. It’s only £2 on the door, from 7pm until 1am, and there’s plenty of hefty drum and bass vibes from DJs Kenzie, Liam Harris, JAK and TT, plus special guests.
The event is said to be the start of big changes for Underground South. More details at facebook.com.
Tomorrow evening will see me return to the decks as part of the Over Board! alternative music residency at The Fleet on King Henry I St in the city centre.
For anyone looking to hear some ‘kraken’ indie, rock, punk and synthwave bangers, be sure to swing by The Fleet from 8pm until 2am as entry is free and the anthems will be rolling in! We will also try and play plenty of requests too. More details at facebook.com/fleetbar.
On Monday,The Delight Crew at The Astoria on Guildhall Walk present their Team Crunk giveaway.
The infamous party-starters Team Crunk will host a pop-up shop, giveaways and extreme party games from 10pm until 2am. Delight is the longest running alternative event in Portsmouth for a reason!
DJs Will ChuMp, Daddy Alex, Sam Hatty, Joskii and Alex D will play plenty of rock, pop punk and metal bangers. Entry is £4 with more details at facebook.com.
On Tuesday, Wave Rider Promotions present Slackrr at Edge of The Wedge in Albert Road. Slackrr are Southampton-based pop punkers who played at the Isle of Wight Festival and just dropped a new album. Support comes from The Disposal Kind, The Stayawakes and energetic skatepunk/ska outfit Why Pinto. More details at facebook.com.
