Many thanks to Barnet Council for the generous grant to make it all possible and allow such an
incredible line up of varied acts to perform.

The False Dots

The headline act on Saturday 20th at The Bohemia are legendary Mill Hill band The False Dots, who will be releasing a new album, Songs of Love and war later this year and will be previewing their recently recorded single “Saturday” which celebrates football fans, dodgy burgers, bad refereeing decisions and crowded train journeys!. They also do more tender numbers like “Winter in Your Heart” (and feature the Barnet Eye’s own Rog on guitar, so please come down and say Hi).

On Sunday 21st, there is a real treat with Lee Thompson of Madness & his son Daley’s band the Silencerz.  They play an amazing mix of Ska, Reggae and Rock and Roll classics. If a bit of Prince Buster, Ian Dury and The Allman Brothers floats your boat, then don’t miss out.

Here is the full line up (with a few links to tempt you!)
