SYNF feat. The Fratellis DJ set

Remember laddish indie rock boys The Fratellis?

Music feature

Remember laddish indie rock boys The Fratellis? They’re the ones behind singles such as the swinging singalong ‘Chelsea Dagger’, with its ’70s-influenced vocals and ‘der-der-dum-der-der-dum’ refrain, as well as slightly more sedate follow-up ‘Whistle for the Choir’. The band are on hiatus at the moment, but that’s not stopping Barry Fratelli (formerly Barry Wallace) from keeping himself busy with DJ sets, such as the one that’ll be kicking off at Alpha this Friday.

We expect he’ll be spinning indie and alternative rock tunes from the modern day, with some classics thrown in too, but that’s just a guess. What we do know is that the warm-up will be provided by excellent (and Time Out Nightlife Award-winning) blues-rock act Tim Hassall and the August Company. Tim’s wry, sometimes bawdy, lyrics should be perfectly in tune with Mr Fratelli and, we hope, his audience too.

EDIT: This event, which was to be held on April 30, has been postponed until June 8.

The Fratellis play Alpha, June 8, Dhs75, ladies free before midnight.
