Having honed their skills on the 1s & 2s during the 1990s in various alternative clubs in and around the local area, the time was right to step out & host their own night. One year later they’ve built a following for what has been called ’the best night in town’ by playing a unique blend of indie, dance, grunge, hip-hop, and much much more! The 90’s was an incredible explosion of musical styles, Loaded celebrates this decade but also the influences that lead to it, and the music it went on to inspire. It is 9pm-1am, free entry.
