Coming up

Getting back into gigs

Fri 15 Mar 2019

Tonight, Essex band and rising stars, Rubber Jaw, will take to our stage to perform their brand new single ‘Freaking Out’ for the first time. We ask Rio what makes the Lakeside Theatre the perfect new venue for live music.

I haven’t been to a gig in ages, and seeing Sam Eagle at Lakeside last month was a great way to get back into it. I’d forgotten how much fun it is to relax with friends and listen to music live. The whole night had such  a warm and comfortable atmosphere and Sam’s talent just seemed effortless.

Before this, the last gig I remember going to was in Nottingham. It was so busy I could barely move – it wasn’t an enjoyable experience for the amount I was paying.

But at Lakeside, the staff are friendly, the venue is intimate but yet still spacious and best and it’s crazy good value for money.

I’m so excited for tonight’s gig, just knowing I’ll be one of the people in Lakeside tonight seeing them perform their new single, ‘Freaking Out’, for the very first time.

I have a feeling it’s going to be a good night.

See you there!
