It’s a busy weekend at Hitchin’s Club 85, with the Whinbush Road venue’s trademark eclectic musical mix to the fore.

Tomorrow Detroit-based singer-songwriter Zander Michigan will be on the bill for a Roots & Roll Cafe session which will also feature Beds-based Painted Lady, Walkern’s Roxy Searle, Hitchin rock band Oldskool and Cambridgeshire’s Charmaine Dawson, billed as Kate Bush for the 21st century, and you won’t be far wrong!

It’s only £6 on the door from 7.45pm with music starting at 8pm.

That’s followed on Saturday with hotly-tipped Birmingham indie-rockers Jaws calling in on their UK tour, with support from Sheffield slacker punks Nai Harvest and Liverpool’s Whitecliff – who feature erstwhile Stevenage skin-slapper Tom Taylor on drums.

Tickets are £10 in advance from www.juiceboxindie.com or £12 on the doors, and again the start time is 8pm.

On Sunday night there’s more international talent with a visit from Danish skate punks Forever Unclean, with the undercard boasting a first local show for pop punk supergroup The Over Everythings – featuring members of Frog Stupid, Manboob and many more besides – as well as female alternative rockers Screech Bats and a live debut from new local trio Post99.

The Sunday show will be getting under way from 6.45pm and it’s only £5.
