No Brainer is a new night showcasing the best up-and-coming bands presented by Conrad Rogan of Teen Creeps who have been bringing you great gigs and brilliant nights around Brighton and London since 2010, and presented a stage at Camden Crawl CC14. The Teen Creeps DJs spin classic electro, synth pop, New Wave from '77-'84, lo-fi guitar tunes & Italo Disco stompers to shake you out of your midweek complacency.
London-based two-piece The Connectors are rock 'n' roll like it should be: balls-out '70s-style rock that has led to recent favourable reviews from NME and Artrocker, amongst others. This is dirty, sweaty, tops-off music.
Money For Rope are rising stars of the Australian rock scene. The Melbourne-based band are a sonic attack, with two drum kits, two guitars, a bass and four vocals, they make a snarling yet rhythmic noise based around classic rock 'n' roll and garage punk.
SHE bring together many genres that manage to work together seamlessly; fusing angular post punk and art rock with swirling pysch melodies, their wall of sound will leave you in a beautiful daze.
London based Haydn & The Normals showcase their modern take on late '70s art punk

In February Chess Club, National Anthem and Neon Gold combined forces to launch a new monthly spin-off of their New Shapes series at Notting Hill Arts Club. After the runaway success of the launch party, which saw ASTR and The Silver Palms tear the roof off a packed house, we've enjoyed great shows by Broods and Mě, Tove Lo and Kill J and Wet, Laurel and Zella Day.
New Shapes returns to Notting Hill Arts Club next month and this time round we have two of the UK's most exciting new bands for you.
Having already spent the majority of 2014 out on the road touring the UK in support of pals Wolf Alice and We Are Scientists, Superfood managed to find enough time to head into the studio and lay down the foundations of their eagerly-awaited forthcoming debut album. Make sure you see these first now before they blow up!
Incredibly excited to have support from new London funk duo Ekkah whose blend of
disco, pop and soul is taking dance floors by storm. Live these guys really bring the party!
Resident spin doctor Dashy Dashy will be with you until 2am dropping big hitters.
