Hi Everyone

I've been a listener to The Archers, Radio Four's long running serial about country folk for over two decades, and still absolutely NOTHING about bows and arrows or Robin Hood...

I mean, ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

And in other news, it's another busy weekend at the Rising Sun, starting with  another instalment of CLUB VELOCITY on Friday

Another fine selection of beat combos for the enjoyment of us all courtesy of Velocity HQ and it looks just so:-

VIENNA DITTO
The Reading two piece. Girl/Boy duo, that really are now firm mainstayers of the local music scene.  They deal in electro pop, with a huge slab of blues. 

Over the last eighteen months, the music world have really woken up to the sound of Vienna Ditto.

They have been championed by 6 Music, XFM, BBC Berkshire Introducing, BBC Berkshire and BBC introducing Oxford.

THE KEEP CATS
They started to play their first gigs when they were 12 years old.  They are now 16 years old.  They are still finding their sound.  They are a great mix of pop/indie.rock.  The last twelve months they have improved ten fold.

ALPHABET BACKWARDS
Actually one of THE bands in Oxford.  They deal in delightful left of centre pop music for the pop kids.

We’ll be open at 8pm and it’ll cost you £7 on the door, or £5 in advance from www.wegottickets.com

On Saturday, we bring you FIESTA LATINA

A fun and sociable dance night featuring a mix of Latin dances from tango to merengue, salsa to bachata and all the stops in between (La Rueda is a speciality). Very friendly evening in somewhere that could have been lifted straight out of Cuba. Come and enjoy some hot Latin rhythms.

We'll be open at 9pm and it'll cost you a paltry £6 on the door to get in

That’s everything for another week, just to remind you that we are, as always, at 30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST (If you pop it into your satnav or Google, we shall magically appear!)

Have a nice weekend!

This Weekend's Events (17th to 19th May)

Hi Everyone

At the Rising Sun we do pride ourselves on being different from the rest of the herd.  So much so, that we really can't be done with the cringing cult of celebrity.
