Aces And Eights is excited to announce the launch of a brand new live music event: LIVE AT ACES, which will take place on the 27th and 28th of September and will be a showcase of some of the most exciting new live bands around.
Taking place over both floors with acoustic upstairs and full bands downstairs both dates are curated by two of the freshest promoters around. Legendary music tastemakers Stunt Fox take hold of the reins on Saturday whilst young hot shots White Noise will be calling the shots on the Sunday.
This weekender is all about the music but it’s worth mentioning that we’ll also be offering a wide selection of craft beers, whiskeys and delicious pizzas. Look forward to seeing you at Aces.
STUNTFOX PRESENTS 27TH SEPT
The Dash: Touted as the long awaited British riposte to The Ramones, Stooges and New York Dolls, London based four-piece The Dash are notorious for leaving the stage in a storm of broken bones, hearts and guitars and have played alongside such acts as Morrissey, Patti Smith, Prince, Biffy Clyro, Dirty Pretty Things’ Carl Barat, The Gossip, Black Lips and even on request of Mighty Boosh, IT Crowd star Matt Berry.
The Petals: Stacking up an impressive list of gigs (Dingwalls, 93 Feet East, Camden Rocks etc.) since getting their beer license, there’s a huge buzz about this bunch of 18 year olds. You’ll marvel at the excellence of their punk/pop performance.
The Rusty Suns: The band pump out infuriatingly catchy melodies, foot stomping rhythms and thoughtful lyrics. The many influences and sounds combine and the end product needs quite a description… rockabilly, upbeat folk, rousing English trad songs, heavy indie riffs… it all seems very natural together somehow. Think Simon & Garfunkel meets Chas ‘n’ Dave !
Yan Yates & The Two Dollar Hookers: The gypsies have come to town! Originally from Middlesborough Yan has honed his stomping folk sound all around the world and particularly in Camden. With his brand new band he’s expanded his soundscape to devastating effect.
George Frakes: With his hauntingly beautiful voice and virtuoso picking style George has become a much sought after figure on the British music scene and has supported such prestigious acts as Daughter, The Magic Numbers, Foy Vance and Dry The River. He’s graced the stage of The Royal Albert Hall and supported Frank Turner all around the UK on his last sold out tour by personal invitation
Jimmy Brewer: Jimmy Brewer is a songwriter, he is also a guitar player and a singer; however, he is not your typical sad acoustic troubadour. Jimmy Brewer has the power to silence a room with little more than an intro. He captures an audience and takes them on an emotional rollercoaster ride, leaving them exhausted, amazed and fulfilled.

WHITE NOISE PRESENT 28TH SEPT
Ragweed: Brighton based, sludge punk trio Ragweed have ammased a growing reputation for dispatching high octane live performances that are rammed with chaotic and unbridled energy. Ragweed are now preparing for the national release of their debut album Parerga. The record tramples the line between hard hitting, heavy metal and abrasive punk rock.
Bear vs. Manero: “fuzz coated pumping bass lines and grinding riffs combining to create a very progressive and unique sound” – Artrocker
Deathbeams: “grungey, dirty and the occasional riff to bust your brain and melt your face” – Late Night Langerie
Abbey Bowden: “falls somewhere in the alternative, experimental side of indie folk. When she hits those subdued high notes not a hair is left resting. This is a voice you will not forget!” – Folk Radio UK
Jon Fazal: “It’s Dylan, but Dylan filtered through the voice and guitar of someone brought up on a post-Libertines diet of indie-pop” – BBC Introducing
Adam Cleaver: “refreshingly unpretentious, movingly poignant, his arrangement in both voice and melody are finely tuned and matured” – Hackney Hive
