Joy Division Tribute (40th Anniversary)
Entry Requirements: 18+
|| FREE ENTRY ||
In july it would have been 40 years since 'Warsaw' recorded a set of five demo tracks at Pennine Sound Studios, Oldham. To avoid confusion with the London punk band Warsaw Pakt, the band renamed themselves Joy Division in early 1978 (borrowing their new name from the sex slavery wing of a Nazi concentration camp mentioned in the 1955 novel House of Dolls.)
We're hosting a massive tribute to one of the most influential artists of the modern age at The Shacklewell Arms on Friday 21st July, local bands will be performing interpretations of classic tunes from the bands catalogue from 7pm - 11pm.
If you're in a band and want to contribute to the night by performing 1-2 covers, then get in touch. Limited spaces available.
