★INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK – KEEP MUSIC LIVE★

Posted January 21, 2016

Independent-Venue-Week-596x335

London has lost nearly 40% of music venues in the last decade so now its more important than ever to support your favourite independent music venues to curb this worrying trend.

We have teamed up with Independent Venue Week to put on a top notch schedule of live music from Monday 25th January to Sunday 31st January to make it even easier for you to decide to come out & party.

Join us for a jam session on Monday, when some of the best blues musicians in the big smoke entertain your tortured souls for a mere £3 entry or if Jazz is more your bag, head down on Tuesday to listen to some of the coolest cats in town.

Surf the sea of underground sounds with Wednesday Wipeout showcasing some of the best upcoming acts in the city. Picked by Paloma Faith as the winner of the Shure Creative award in 2010, Joel Bailey will be knocking out soulful, blues inspired shuffles on the 27th, alongside Time Out favourite Lisa Marini, Bernardo & Only Takes A Day.

Carney Kartel will be bringing more carnage on Thursday 28th as London’s finest ghetto surrealists & vaudeville vagabonds take centre stage ft Bad Fractals (Acid Punk / Trailer Trash Rock n Roll), Doghouse (Techno Punk) & Sleaze (Post Punk) LIVE.

Everyone Loves Mary returns on Friday 29th January, this night has previously played host to Rudimental & John Newman, so you may just get to see the next big thing in our intimate setting.

Saturday brings the biggest beats of the week with the Let The Beat Drop, the launch of the new Dookie Squad 12″ on FatHop Records ft live performances from Dookie Squd, Killa Instinct + Chrome & Illinspired.

And last but certainly not least, Rock The Boat on Sunday is a weekly night of electrifying rock. The immensely talented house band & friends cover some of the best rock classics from decades past for seriously smashing Sunday vibes.

Entry varies from £3 to £5 so won’t break the bank, so take your pick & come and support your favourite local independent music venue.

See you on the dancefloor!

SILVER BULLETS 5TH BIRTHDAY W/ BENNY PAGE!!!

It’s been an epic 5 years for The Bullet and to celebrate in style we’ve invested in a brand-spanking new Void Acoustics Sound System and invited BENNY PAGE as our guest of honour to blast out some blissful bass for our birthday bash on Friday June 5th.

Heavily inspired by the basslines of Dub music, Ragga, Jungle and Hip Hop, a Benny Page production doesn’t go unheard in today’s ever-changing bass music culture. His name has become synonymous with heavyweight dance-floor tracks and clinical mixing skills.

Over the past decade the Shy Fx protégé has played a definitive role in shaping the sounds of the UK’s drum and bass movement and is currently preparing his first studio album voiced by an array of Jamaican vocal legends including Beenie Man, Protoje, Big Youth and Assasin.

Joining Benny for the celebration of the century are the banging brother duo, PHIBES, dub- reggae collective DUBTASTIC MUSIC, as well as up and coming female rapper HOLLY FLO LIGHTLY.


Recent winners of the Krafty Kuts “Back To The Beats” DJ competiton the PHIBES brothers never fail to ignite the dance floor with their own exclusive edits and dance floor bangers.

Also donning the decks with a deliriously delicious set of tasty tracks is DJ ORANGE. Expect a seamless selection of big booty basslines,  juicy jungle, ghetto-flexing glitch-hop
and raw ragga riddims.

With the spate of closures of some of London’s best independent music venues there is
more to celebrate than ever that The Silver Bullet is  standing strong with 5 years of excellent events under our belts.


So get your party hats out and rejoice that Finsbury Park’s favourite late night, live music
venue will be hosting the best artists in this bustling bar for many years to come…

Long live the forever independent Silver Bullet!!!

Laura Marling Picks the Silver Bullet!

Posted January 22, 2015

A singular talent, Laura Marling recently confirmed plans for her next album. ‘Short Movie’ will be released on March 23rd, with the singer now confirming a short, intimate burst of live dates.

Opening in Hebden Bridge on January 28th, dates include shows in London, Edinburgh and finally Bristol.

We’re massively excited to announce that the legendary folk singer Laura Marling is set to grace the Silver Bullet stage for the London leg of this tour!

www.clashmusic.com/news/laura-marling-confirms-short-intimate-tour

Please Note – Registration has now closed for the ticket lottery – the lucky winners will be notified by email before the 16th Jan

“I’ve always been told that I’m an old soul. And I’m not. I just have a deep voice and a stern face. I am actually young. I hadn’t had chance to stop and think about that before.”

A little over a year ago, Laura Marling came off the road after touring her hugely successful fourth album Once I Was an Eagle, and immediately set about recording its successor. “I literally rolled out of the van and into the studio — a decision made by my own stubbornness,” she recalls. “And then I just stopped cold turkey.” Marling’s fifth album, Short Movie, is the result of an extended period of stopping and thinking. “I realised that I hadn’t been in a place for longer than two or three weeks since I was 16,” she explains. “I thought ‘I wonder what will happen if I try and root myself somewhere?‘ Look back over the past eight years.”
