All Tied Up cut loose MK 11 tomorrow

MK11 will be catering for the home crowd tomorrow night when All Tied Up play.

The power-pop-punkers will be taking a break from recording their new EP Impossible to Breathe, for the show.

The five-track delivery is set for release in the late summer.

All Tied Up have also entered this year’s Rock The House competition – with the chance to perform at the House of Commons.

It’s not your typical spit and sawdust haunt, and the clientele aren’t your usual pop-punk enthusiasts.

So why enter?

“We entered on a whim,” bassist Leebo told us.

“We thought what an amazing opportunity it would be to get our music out to some really big and important players in the music industry, and at the same time try to raise awareness of the importance of live music.

“The music industry has changed so much in the last five to 10 years, especially with the increase in downloadable material which often leaves bands out of pocket.

“Live music is where bands generally make their money these days, so it’s really important that live venues like The Craufurd Arms and MK11 in Milton Keynes, don’t get closed down or have their licences changed...”

Tickets are a fiver and doors open at 7.30pm.

> Southern pop rockers Natives will be live in the Main Bar at The Craufurd Arms this Saturday night.

The band are out on the road for their second headlining UK tour of the year, in support of the recently released new single, Ghost.

Tickets are a fiver.

> Speaking of The Craufurd (as we have been all over this page today), the venue has just booked another ‘killer’ date – the arrival of Soulfly.

One-time Sepultura leader turned Soulfly ace Max Cavalera will bring the band to heel at the Wolverton haunt on July 6.

Tickets are on sale now.

> Soul Selecta will be back for their quarterly residency at The Slug & Lettuce this Friday evening.

What that means for those of you parking up at the Theatre District location for 8pm is a rush of soul and funk, Motown and disco tunes that will lead to involutary movement and dance floor destruction.

When the Nicky Prince fronted band take a break, DJ Mr Magic will take over, spinning more tunes of plenty and classic cuts en masse.

Tickets are £4 in advance, £6 on the doors for the over 18s event. For more info pop over to www.soulselecta.co.uk
