FIREBURG’S FIRST FILM NIGHT
HIGH FIDELITY VS EMPIRE RECORDS
28 Feb 2013
REVIEW BY MEL REEVE:
Firebug is Leicester’s cosiest and hippest pub-come-venue, always providing a wealth of interesting and exciting gigs as well as a variety of other events, such as their infamous pub quiz.
In the next few weeks and months alone this delightful place has got live music from bands including Tall Ships (Wednesday 6th March), Ace Bushy Stripteas, Evans The Death (23rd March as part of their Indie Alldayer Festival) and Bats (12th April) . Not content with this busy schedule, Firebug kicked off a brand new monthly Film Club evening on Wednesday, with a cracking double bill; Empire Records and High Fidelity, two brilliant films.
It’s also nice to see all the posters in Firebug for Handmade Festival, another brand new event coming to Leicester, which genuinely has one of the best line-ups of any festival I’ve ever seen (Dutch Uncles, Sky Larkin, Johnny Foreigner, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Twilight Sad, Katie Malco, plus loads of other awesome artists!) and promises to be a fantastic weekend of music.
Coming up on 26th March at 7:00pm there’s a Mean Girls and Clueless double-bill, which is sure to get everyone excited - two truly brilliant films in one sitting. Sadly, that’s slightly after the end of term for most of us Uni of Leicester students, but if you’re intending to stick around for a bit, then make sure you attend as you’re sure to have a great time. Also, make sure you put the Evil Dead 2 vs Shaun of the Dead evening on your calendar too, on 24th April.
