Chart toppers Clean Bandit, who are becoming well-known for their blend of “classical violins and addictive house” have made a date at Lancaster library in April.

Given their recent success – their latest single Rather Be topped both the UK Singles and the iTunes charts last weekend and they have been A-listed by both Radio 1 and 2 – chances are they won’t be playing intimate venues like Lancaster library for much longer.

They perform the all ages show on Wednesday April 30 at 8pm.

Tickets, which go on sale at 9am on Friday January 31, are £11, available from www.seetickets.com and www.getitloudinlibraries.com. There are no tickets available from the venue.

Meanwhile in Lancaster, a new monthly funk and soul night kicks off at The Golden Lion in Moor Lane in a couple of weeks time.

Funky Lion is headed up by DJ’s Jah Vis and Donald, who’ll be playing vinyl tracks with a rare funk and soul agenda.

The first night is on February 15, followed by March 22 and April 19.

The music starts around 8.30pm and runs until 1am.

Tomorrow night, Friday, Gaz Brookfield and Joe McCorriston kick off their national tour at The Greyhound in Halton, music starts around 9pm.

Next Friday, February 7, Lancaster’s The Convulsions and Get Carter perform together onstage for the first time (see Sound Bites), while on Saturday, February 8, The Weirdstring Band and Folk to Folk lead The Hothouse Ceilidh at More Music in Morecambe.

On Friday February 14, Stephen Husdson and The Fiat Pandas launch their new single – Yer Grandma’s Pearls / Mrs Steklenberg – at The Yorkshire House, with support to be confirmed.

And on Saturday February 15, Carpe perform in the extremely intimate upstairs room at Go Burrito, while David Gibb and Elly Lucas have a date at More Music.
