Lightyears Christmas party – this Friday night

3 December 2009

The gig will look a bit like this. Only with more sleighbells and tinsel and stuff.Your last chance to see The Lightyears live in 2009 is this Friday night (4 December) at The Troubadour in Earls Court. We’re throwing an enormous, super-shiny Christmas party to usher in the festive season and promise to lavish all kinds of delectable rock treats upon everybody present.

Tickets are selling fast so it’s advisable to buy in advance by clicking here or turn up early! Doors are at 8pm; music starts 8.15pm; LYs onstage 9.45pm. Door tickets are £6 before 9pm and £7 afterwards.

Support comes from Iain Hornal’s new act Young Squires, Neil Thomas and Shaun Russell.

We’ve also invited a few special guests down, including Josh Ward, star of the T-Mobile superband adverts. Josh will be joining us for a performance of “Come With Me“, the song we wrote for the campaign. The track is due for release on a major record label in January. Not to be missed!

Buy tickets for the LYs’ Christmas Party

2 October 2009

Look how happy Tony is. He LOVES Christmas!We’re headlining The Troubadour in Earls Court on Friday 4 December and it’ll be a MASSIVE Christmas party to celebrate the coming of the festive season.

Tickets are now on sale. Buy yours by clicking here!

Advance tickets cost £6. Tickets on the door will cost £7 before 9.30pm and £8 afterwards. Buying in advance is advisable as THIS GIG WILL SELL OUT.

We were aware of a few technical/timing issues at our last Troubadour gig but we’ll be ironing those out this time by running the night ourselves. So expect superior sound quality and faultless punctuality! (Because, let’s face it, there’s nothing more rock ‘n’ roll than being punctual.)

On top of The Lightyears there’ll be music from Shaun Russell, Neil Thomas and The Iain Hornal Experience. Iain is the former frontman of the wonderful Genius, who some of you may remember from a couple of years back when they were touring with The Feeling. After our set, DJ Mark Love will keep the party going long into the night. All-in-all, the place will be heaving with seasonal merriment, wondrous dancing and joy to all men. It’ll be just like Christmas Day, only you won’t have to waste hours trying to fit AAA batteries into an ultimately disappointing remote-controlled helicopter.

…Remember Fezzywig’s Christmas Party in the Charles Dickens novel “A Christmas Carol”? Well, it’s going to be exactly like that. But without the smallpox.

Doors 8pm, first act 8.15. LYs onstage 9.45pm. Full details on the GIGS page.
