Next Door Records are going Off The Rails.
And trust us when we say, we couldn’t be happier for them.
See, this year the vinyl aficionados are staging their very first local arts festival this June, bringing together dozens of artists to bridge the gap between live music and electronica. You’ll be able to catch gigs, DJs and more across 8 stages hosted in a cluster of venues around their Shepherd’s Bush home, from their own shop, to the Bush Theatre, the atmospheric St. Stephen’s Church, and the quietly grand Bush Hall next door to Next Door Records.
It’s all going down on 10th June, and there’s already plenty to get excited about in the programme. As serious vinyl fans, the NDR team know how to pick out a name to watch, and the line-up is shaping up to be a varied mix of talented electronic and live artists. Already confirmed are the post-punk jazz troupe Ebi Soda; Glastonbury rapper Shunaji; hypnotic Scottish jazz drummer Graham Costello; Noirwave founder Petite Noir; and singer-songwriter Delilah Holliday (who’s played on stage with Iggy Pop and Primal Scream, and was handpicked by The Cure’s Robert Smith to play his Meltdown Festival at the Southbank Centre).
As well as caressing your eardrums, Off The Rails W12 will also have treats for the eyes in the form of pop-up art exhibitions, and for the tastebuds, with a couple of local street food traders slated to join the party. And there’s a chance for you to get involved too, with a roster of interactive workshops and industry talks on the programme.
Because they’re determined to take you Off The Rails, too.
NOTE: Tickets for Off The Rails W12 (10th June 2023) are available here. Off The Rails W12 | Across Shepherd’s Bush, W12
