Last week we presented you with a bargain show at the Hemlock assuming that you spent all your money trying to impress some two bit floozy on New Years Eve. Our show of the week for the second week of January takes place at a venue where the term two bit floozy still doesn’t seem that out of place. A venue where you might feel inclined to order yourself a sloe gin fizz if it wasn’t going to set you back $16.00 with tip.

We’re talking of course about Bimbos 365 Club, which this week plays host to The English Beat. If you’re going to shell out the money for a show at Bimbos, we imagine that you’d like to be entertained. The English Beat are just what the doctor ordered. Upbeat, entertaining, achingly familiar and best of all, music that white people can dance to.
