A POPULAR city nightspot has given the green light to a fresh club night.
The Kasbah, in Hillfields, launches its new Saturday night theme Tricky Disco this weekend (March 10) replacing the hugely popular Groovy Garden which ran for an incredible 13 years.
In the early days of its Saturday night slot Groovy Garden played host to the likes of The Libertines, a little-known Kasabian, Klaxons and Lostprophets.
Up and coming garage/dubstep DJ, Redlight, will headline Tricky Disco’s opening night this Saturday (March 10) and will be followed by female vocalist Yasmin (March 17), grime MC, P Money (March 24) and punk band Young Guns (March 31).
These live performances will take place in the venue’s left wing room while the globe room will play more commercial party music and the main room will offer a mixed bag of indie-funk, disco-funk and pop-junk dance beats
Thanos Staikos is promotions manager at the Kasbah and is excited about this change in approach as they look to keep up with the needs of their loyal customer base while also attracting some new faces.
He said: “Groovy Garden has been a massive success for 13 years but after talking to our customers, we felt it was time for a change.
“We have a fantastic customer base that has stuck with us for years and we have listened to all of their feedback when they come into the venue but also via social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter where we are very active.
“It is because of this, and the change in trend in the music industry as a whole recently, that we are looking to switch the focus of our Saturday club night and freshen things up.
“When you look back at some of the names that performed at Groovy Garden over the years you can see how things have changed.
“We had Cornershop perform here along with Kasabian before they really hit the big time, and Scratch Perverts and Goldie Lookin’ Chain as well as many more.
“On Saturday we have one of the biggest names in garage/dubstep, Redlight, set to be our first performer and he is sure to put on a real show.”
Admission is just £5 and starts from 9.30pm. For more information call 02476 554473 or visit kasbahnightclub.com
