Off Axis with Dorey The Wise

Another Stinger related post, or maybe it’s just that the magazine times these things well?

This Friday, 14th November at Flairz in Hastings, the first Off Axis gig in the South East takes place.

Headliners are Dorey the Wise who were featured in the latest issue of The Stinger and who played an Off Axis gig themselves recently in Chester. Read that article here:

For the uninitiated, Off Axis is a new and exciting gig swap idea which allows bands from across the country to play gigs to potential new fans, outside of their own local area.

Off Axis is an idea that is fully supported by Pierless Music, The Stinger and also Hastings Fat Tuesday. The Stinger has already covered Off Axis in the magazine and we hope to be working closely with the Off Axis team in the near future.

We’d certainly urge Hastings based bands to get involved, as its free to sign up. For more information about Off Axis follow this link:

Dorey The Wise are currently enjoying some great exposure. The band recently released a new single ‘Brave New Light’, which has come to the attention of Amazing Radio DJ, Charlie Ashcroft, who said “I absolutely love it, (it’s) one of those tracks that seems to have a certain Britishness to it, a track that’s impressed a lot of us in the Amazing Radio office.”

‘Brave New Light’ was also played on BBC Introducing: The South, last Saturday. You can hear that show via this link. Dorey The Wise are played around the 10 minute mark:

Support acts for this Off Axis gig are a new local band, Follow and The Floodgates, who hail from the Tunbridge Wells area.

It promises to be a great gig, hopefully we’ll see you there?
