Ragebreed Rock Night, Leicester

People often bewail the lack of decent rock nights in Leicester, but fear not! Ragebreed are back with a monthly night at Venom and it is already proving to be a great success since it launched in March of this year.

The next one will be held on Friday 8th May from 10pm and runs over three floors so there’s something for everyone. You can also join their Facebook page and pick which songs you’d like to hear, or just request something you like. This month, they will be joined by guest DJ Martin Walkyier of Sabbat, Skyclad and the Clan Destined fame. Not bad!

It’s £4.00 to get in before 11pm and a fiver after, but metal society members or Ragebreed VIP card holders get in for £2.50. They also have a special birthday offer, which I’m particularly interested as it’s my birthday the very next day, so maybe I’ll get to take advantage of it!

“Whoever has a birthday and want to celebrate it at this event, 
we do free admission for birthday guest + 2 free admission. 
All guests get a FREE Ragebreed VIP Royalty Card 
which means 12 months of getting into the club half price 
and other discounts for other clubs/promoters/venues. 
Birthday girl or boy gets a free drinks voucher. Hows that for you?”

I can’t argue with that – free entry and a free drink sounds pretty sweet to me.

There are plenty of drinks offers on too, my particular picks being (naturally) a glass of wine for £3.00, Trooper and Hobgoblin at £4.00 or vodka and a mixer for £2.50.

Which floor will you be on? What is your must-listen tune at a rock night? I think all the levels have something to commend them, but most likely to stick to my roots and hang out in Riff Raff, listening to Aerosmith and Whitesnake. I see Def Leppard’s not on the list. I shall have to take it up with the promoter.
