Get In Her Ears Live @ The Victoria w/ Fräulein, 21.01.2021

On Friday we were back for our first gig of 2022, at The Victoria in Dalston, and what a fantastic night it was! Huge thanks to the three totally amazing bands who played, and to all the lovely folk who came out to support them and fill the venue… We’re still feeling all the feels, and are extremely grateful to everyone who made it such a dream night.

First up, duo Naz & Ella kick things off beautifully. Exuding a captivating grace, they deliver their exquisite, brooding offerings with a subtle gritty edge, reflecting on poignant themes ranging from sexual harassment to animal cruelty. A truly stirring start to the evening.


Next up, First Timers alumni Breakup Haircut treat us to their joyous, scuzzy pop-punk. Exuding a vibrant energy, they deliver their uplifting, danceable offerings with an infectious wit and colourful charisma as the crowd bounce along in glee.


Closing the night are one of the most exciting bands around at the moment. Having been on my radar for over a year now, it’s a real honour to host one of duo Fräulein‘s first headline shows. Blasting out an immersive wall of grunge-fuelled splendour, each track oozes a swirling energy and raw, impassioned drive. As the stark power of front person Joni’s vocals ripple alongside gritty hooks and drummer Karsten’s immense driving beats, the huge crowd show their appreciation with whoops and cheers, and even a bit of a mosh. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – here is a band headed for big things, continuing to develop their epic musical prowess by the minute, and I cannot wait for their imminent world domination!


Massive thanks to the three incredible bands who played for us on Friday and everyone who came along! Join us for our next gig, on 24th February at Shacklewell Arms with Jenny Moore’s Mystic Business, Potpourri and BAXTR!

Get In Her Ears Live @ The Shacklewell Arms w/ Problem Patterns, 03.12.2021

On Friday we were back for our second gig since February 2020, and our first time hosting at the glorious Shacklewell Arms, and what a fantastic night it was! Huge thanks to the three totally amazing bands who played (I was blown away by you all!), and to all the lovely folk who came out to support them and fill the venue with the best of vibes… We’re still feeling all the feels, and are extremely grateful to everyone who made it such a dream night.

First up, GUTTS kick things off in a wonderfully riotous way – blasting out their queer sax-punk with an angst-driven energy and magnetising charisma.

Next up, Margate duo pink suits deliver their poignantly charged, utterly immense punk anthems. With just drums, a guitar and the riotous force of their voices, Lennie and Ray offer an inclusive Feminist rebellion to bring about radical change. With a captivating, seething energy, each frenzied offering is propelled by a colossal force, leaving me mind-blown and ready to join their fight for an upheaval of a neoliberal society. 

Having travelled all the way over from Belfast for the gig, I’ve been excited about hosting headliners, Problem Patterns, for a long time now, and they do not disappoint! Continually swapping instruments throughout the set, the Northern Irish Feminist punks cover topics ranging from transphobia and sexism, to the power of female friendship and the damaging effects of toxic relationships. With each poignant, raging offering, the band ooze a swirling, empowering energy and fierce, infectious passion, uniting the crowd in solidarity with both their righteous anger and vibrant, joyous sense of fun. A truly exciting set from one of my most favourite bands.

Massive thanks to the three incredible bands who played for us on Friday and everyone who came along! Join us for our next gig, on 21st January at The Victoria with headliners Fräulein and support from Breakup Haircut and Naz & Ella.

Get In Her Ears Live @ The Victoria w/ Currls, 05.11.2021

Last Friday we were back for our first gig since February 2020 and what a glorious night it was! Huge thanks to the three incredible bands who played for each putting on a fantastic show, and to everyone who came out to support them and us in this first venture into hosting live music for over eighteen months…. We’re still feeling all the feels, and are extremely grateful to everyone who made it such a lovely night.

First up is the totally dreamy, shoegaze-tinged sounds of Schande. Treating us to a set of shimmering sonic delights old and new, they delive a perfectly head-bopping, heart-bursting set to start the evening.

Next up, The Other Ones blast onto the stage with their infectious riotous energy. With a playful charisma, they deliver their vibrant punk-pop with a swirling, gritty power as the crowd bounce and sing along in joyous unity (especially to a surprise cover of Natalie Imbruglia’s ‘Torn’)…

Drawing the night to a euphoric close, headliners – Brighton’s Currls – treat us to their sweeping, empowering brand of garage rock. Propelled by an immense rhythm section, front woman Holly delivers soaring soulful vocals with an effortless grace and sparkling witty rapport with the crowd. A band to watch for sure, it’s an honour to host their first London headline show.



Massive thanks again to all the wonderful bands, and to everyone who joined us in our joyous return to live music on Friday! Hope to see you all next month for our next gig, our first ever at The Shacklewell Arms, on 3rd December with Belfast punks Problem Patterns, and support from pink suits and GUTTS.

Get In Her Ears Live @ The Finsbury w/ Grawl!x, 14.02.20

Following a host of amazing bands playing for us throughout 2019, including Screaming Toenail, Salad, GENN, Chorusgirl and Witching Waves, and Personal Best kicking off 2020 in empowering style, we were back at The Finsbury on Friday for our second gig of the year, with a rather dreamy line-up for Valentine’s Day.

Kicking off the night are post-punk duo I Am HER. Captivating the crowd with the soaring majesty of her gritty vocals, front woman Julie Riley delivers their dark, stirring anthems with a raw emotion.

Second band of the night, Captain Handsome, treat us to their twinkling indie-folk gems with a refreshing wit and sparky charm. With an infectious lo-fi scuzz alongside shimmering violin melodies and Lily’s perfectly relatable lyricism, their effervescent, catchy offerings tug at the heartstrings in all the right ways – providing the perfect Valentine’s/Anti-Valentine’s soundtrack.

Having initially been set to headline, but swapping set times due to travel issues, Piney Gir take to the stage with all their colour-coordinated sparkling charm. Oozing an infectious joy, Piney and her band deliver their fitting honey-sweet romanticism and shimmering catchy melodies. As an endearing, vibrant energy flows throughout, they treat us to a truly uplifting half hour of the most dreamy tunes.

New headliners, Derby-based Grawl!x, bring the night to a captivating close with their euphoric cinematic soundscapes. With a brand new album out today, they deliver their twinkling electronic hooks and spellbinding harmonies as Maria’s distinctive impassioned vocals soar. A truly enchanting set oozing a poignant stirring emotion.

Massive thanks to the four wonderful bands who played for us on Friday! Make sure you catch our next night at The Finsbury on 13th March when we’ll be hosting super exciting headliners Ghost Car, with support from The Other Ones, Gaptooth and Minimals.
