Shallow Leisure Fest 2: More Leisure Taking Place NOW at the Waiting Room in Colchester

Another venue is closing... Shallow Leisure puts on their final event at The Waiting Room, Colchester.

A terrible venue closing epidemic is currently sweeping the UK and one of the venues that will sadly be closing its doors is The Waiting Room in Colchester.

Before the venue closes its doors, the fine folks at Shallow Leisure are throwing one last party for the band headlined by my favourites, Telepathy, as well as performances by Aithur, Group of Man, Cady, Wren, Man Hands (first show in three years), Basic Dicks, Seven Hundreth Unicorn, Three Thrones, Art of Burning Water and Volunteers who will be playing their only show of the year at the event.

About Jack (818 Articles)
I am a recent graduate from the University of Essex in Colchester where by the luck of Odin I met the editor, Dom. I first got into metal when I was 13 and now I am 22 and own an uncountable amount of band T-shirts. I also regularly attend gigs (local and in neighbouring areas) as well as festivals. My musical taste is varied; I like nu metal (my first love), thrash, black, death, doom, folk, sludge (my favourite genre), symphonic and many more of the multiple genres that metal has to offer, I even like some metalcore (I know it's a dirty word within some metal circles but some of it is outstanding). One of my most memorable metal moments was meeting Grand Magus at the Bloodstock signing tent and having the whole tent to myself, spending a few minutes talking to them.
