Following the huge success of the last event at Mulberry Tavern, we’re back for the fourth Night Shift event in Sheffield, this time featuring:
Formed in 2005, Dyonisis’ sound is a blend of organic and digital, labeled as ‘Ethereal Rock’, incorporating the delightful vulnerability and eccentricity of lead singer Nel. Her husband, Marcus creates rolling bass lines that underpin the shimmering guitars and programmed beats of Tom. The result is as luxurious as it is lacerating.
Batcave goth for the 21st century! Ever popular around Yorkshire since their first visit to Doncaster many years ago, their punky goth electro remains as exciting as ever. Taking influences from Numan, Siouxsie and Alien Sex Fiend the result is nothing short of spectacular.
Prolific Doncaster darkwavers mix up styles from synth pop, punk, goth and industrial into a compulsive dramatic live performance. Described by some as Soft Cell meets The Sisters of Mercy by way of Bauhaus but never easy to pin down and never predictable.
We’re trying something a bit different.. not really synth related. We’re talking a walk on the dark side…
Advance tickets come with a free download of the latest Jan Doyle Band EP ‘Darker Days’, mp3 of the 12″ version of The Danse Society’s ‘Child of Paradise’ track and a live acoustic version of the Zeitgeist Zero track ‘Blood’.
More info below…
There’s about 45 minutes of interview time spliced with the wonderful music of Night Club and a couple of other things.
It was so lovely to talk to them and we chatted about various things including if it’s a stigma for synth music to be associated with the 80s, how they got the Moonbeam City soundtrack job and also which way round the toilet roll should go on the holder.

Let’s give a bit of background info as to why £2 from every ticket bought online from us for this event goes to Ovarian Cancer Charity. Toyah has been a massive influence on Derek of Jan Doyle Band’s life and he was introduced to this music by his Auntie Vie who was very much the 80s girl into all the major pop/rock of the early 80s. So there are many many fond memories brought back of this Auntie by listening to Toyah. This auntie was sadly lost a few years ago to Ovarian Cancer and it was very sudden and a massive impact on all the family. Worse was she was just barely over 40 years of age, which is far too young.
Vie had been something of a rock for the family after the loss of first her father and then her mother, whilst also suffering horrible family issues with her one of her daughters being severely bullied at school. Helping her sister Norma, who had been living with her parents but was now alone, survive after the loss of both parents. She was the strong one and the loss of her was such a horrific pain for the entire family.
Ovarian cancer can strike very quickly and kill very quickly. It did with Vie – within months of the diagnosis she was no longer with us. It still hurts. Ovarian cancer can be beaten if we increase awareness of how soon to look out for the symptoms and what they mean. Which is why this concert is in memory of Violet Costello (Born Whitaker) and for everything she brought into our lives and everything she did.
She is sadly missed but will always be cherished.
