Pluggin away: Plug announce new refurb and line-up
Following a joint-takeover by MJR Group and Propaganda, one of the city’s most popular venues recently enjoyed a substantial refurb and has committed itself to a wide-ranging entertainment programme of gigs, club nights and events set to reinstate it as a hub of the Sheffield social scene.
Changes include brand new walls, carpets, flooring, soundsystem, lighting rig, a 20ft LED light wall and an improved outside area. The old ‘Neutral’ room has also had a makeover and been relaunched as a new 500-capacity standalone venue, Plug Warehouse. The cosmetic changes naturally aim to make the experience more immersive and enjoyable, but it’s the dedication to a variety of upcoming events which is a particularly exciting prospect for gig-goers, clubbers and general thrill-seekers in the Steel City.
They’ve already brought the likes of Kate Tempest, Sundara Karma, Feeder, The Strypes, Roni Size, The Amazons, Basshunter, Primal Scream, Ghostpoet, Lucy Rose, Big Narstie and While She Sleeps to the stage this year – but there’s plenty more to come! This month alone you can expect Lucy Rose, The Undertones, JAWS, a late-night touring circus, a tasty looking cheese festival and plenty more to get stuck into.
Plug are eager to remain an important part of the local music scene, and after putting on gigs for the likes of up-and-coming talents such as Otis Mensah and Caroline Francess, they’ve asked any bands or artists interested in getting a gig to drop a demo their promotion manager, firstname.lastname@example.org.
