Indie music, Tina Turner tribute, al fresco market and more Bahrain fun
Time Out Bahrain staff
Indie rock If you like your music loud and with a distinctly rocky beat, check out Alderon, the Bahraini four-piece who’ve signed up to play at Déjà Vu from 9pm one Friday a month. Tonight’s their first gig so go along and give them a warm welcome.Expect sounds from Marley to Metallica via the Chilis with a fair smattering of the band’s own stuff thrown in for good measure. We’ll be checking this out and reporting back next month. Fri, Feb 1, from 9pm, Déjà vu Lounge, Adliya.
Tina tribute The first of this month’s Tina Turner tributes (there are two). It’s a Love Thing with Tina Turner’s music that makes you want to Shake Your Tail Feather and Julie Nevada pays a brilliant tribute to the great Honky Tonk Woman! ‘The show captures Tina’s stage presence, the legs and most importantly the voice of this great rock legend!’ Well that’s what the blurb says anyway but we’ll leave you to be the judge. Tickets are BD5 on the door. Fri, Feb 1, Vessuvio, Best Western The Olive. Call (17 360 063).
Live and unplugged Check out the sounds from Bahrain Acoustic Music Group who’ll be playing the first of their twice-monthly sessions to the rugby club (the other one’s at JJ’s). Basically it’s a bunch of musos getting together to jam and can go on for several hours as people come and go. If you play an instrument, join in, if not just chill out and enjoy the music with a pie and a pint in good company. Fri, Feb 1, 2pm onwards, Bahrain Rugby Football Club.
Bag a bargain There’s fun for the family, surprises for the kids and loads of discounts and special offers in the three-day Reef Mall Exhibition. Until Sat, Feb 2, Reef Mall, Hamad Town. Call (39 332 451).
Bag a bargain two A somewhat different shopping offering with the monthly outdoor shopping fest at The Lagoon. Look out for handmade jewellery and artsy stuff (perfect for Valentine’s Day pressies, hint hint) as well as kids’ entertainment, possibly some music and basically a fun family day out. Fri & Sat, Feb 1 & 2, noon-10pm, Amwaj Lagoon. Call (17 713 716).
