English shoegazers Ride headline SWG3 TV Studio on Sunday 8 September 2024. 

The group have always been a band capable of seeing hidden depths others couldn’t. When the world was going baggy, they floated out of Oxfordshire art schools in 1988 on a sound like scorched clouds. It would become known as shoegaze, but Ride’s primordial blaze of noise, like Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and The House Of Love, had a savagery and elegance that transcended the Home Counties waftiness that would emerge from their vapour trail. Their early run of EPs and Top Twenty debut album Nowhere made them the alternative sensation of 1990 and Creation Records’ first major success story; its Top Five follow up Going Blank Again, featuring the monolithic Leave Them All Behind and the head-spinning Twisterella, was a celestial torrent of noise and imagination like none other of its era. 

This event is strictly 14+. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over. One adult can attend with a maximum of two Under 16s.
