Kid Ink

Hip hop, Pop and rock

Think you like tattoos? Not as much as Los Angeles-based rapper and much-played YouTube artist Kid Ink, you don't, who has pretty much run out of body space by his mid-twenties. Think vocodered rhymes and the bling lifestyle. And lots of tattoos.

Rixton

Chart pop

No they haven't forgotten to put a 'B' on the front of their name – this boy band from Manchester are intentionally called Rixton. Why? It doesn't really matter, all you need to know is that they look like One Direction impersonating The Ordinary Boys...

Tom Vek

Rock 'n' roll

  • Critics' choice

The pint-sized electro wizard finally returns with new material, after yet another long wait between albums. True, it's only been three years since his last record 'Leisure Seizure' – nothing compared to the six-year gap after 'We Have Sound' – but that's...

Zola Jesus

Electronica, Alternative rock

  • Critics' choice

A former opera singer, Nika Roza Danilova now makes brooding electro-pop with enigmatic wailing as Zola Jesus – a name she gave herself to alienate herself from bullies at school. She has four albums under her belt, with a fifth ('Taiga') out soon.

PS

A good venue for gigs but not so much for club nights.

Eleanor

I saw The Band Perry at the Koko club and it was a lovely venue, it is an old theatre with all the seating taken out in the stalls (I didnt see upstairs) and has a full bar at the back. The acoustics were very good, as were the Band Perry! Would recommend! I would like to go to one of their guilty pleasures nights and club nights soon!

Jimmytwigg

I agree. Not the most welcoming of places. As for the refit?? I used to go there in the mid 90's and I could not tell what they had changed since then?... Sticky carpets, awful toilets and grumpy staff. Regretfully, best avoided.

Dazbert

I don't get the idea here. It's a lovely building with an interesting layout, but they treat their customers like cattle. They charge insane prices for a can of appalling bitter emptied lovelessly into a thin plastic glass. Queues 10-deep at the bar. Events where the comperes verbally abuse people for needing the toilet while they're speaking (and I mean abuse, not joke about, Patrick Kielty). It's bad enough that you start to think, 'Well if you really don't want me here I'll leave.' You're just a commodity, being fleeced for as much as they can get away with. It's a shame, as it has so much potential. But it's top of my blacklist nowadays.
