Electric Six The kings of 2000s era comedy rock graced Leamington with their presence for a fun show full of their favourite hits and a couple of surprises from their albums since. We weren’t in a Gay Bar, but the Dance Commander implied there would be Danger! If there wasn’t any Improper Dancing going on by the end. Don’t know what I’m on about? That means you’ve not met Electric Six before.

Caravan Palace Of course what I’m here to see is Caravan Palace, who came to my attention on a recent appearance on Later. They were simply electric and like nothing I’d heard before and I just had to see them live. They initially only played a one-off date in London but thankfully have added more dates, tonight being Birmingham and their first ever visit to the ‘Second City’.
