DF Concerts presents

Retro Video Club 

 Retro Video Club AR

7.00pm, Friday 27 December

From £14.30 (inc booking fee)

Bursting onto the scene in 2017, Retro Video Club are a high-octane indie/rock band hailing from Edinburgh, Scotland.

After holing up in the studio for almost a year refining their sound, their single 'Psycho' was play-listed to both Spotify's 'Hot New Bands' and 'The Indie List' playlists which propelled them to a number of sell out shows, at Edinburgh’s The Mash House and Glasgow’s King Tut's Wah Wah Hut.

2018 saw their February single ‘Chemistry’ playlisted on seven Spotify playlists including ‘All New, All Now’, ‘Indie Roadtrip’ and ‘Walk Like a Badass’, seeing it reach over one million streams. One week after Chemistry’s release, the band sold out THE LIQUID ROOMS (Official) in Edinburgh, three times the venue capacity of their Mash House show, four months previous.

Throughout the summer came numerous festival appearances, as well as a hometown show at DF’s Summer Sessions in Princes Street Gardens, with Bastille and The Vaccines. This was followed up by the band’s first full UK Tour, as well as three Scottish shows in December.

2019 so far, has seen the band heading off on a European Tour supporting Barns Courtney, as well as supporting THE HUNNA on their most recent UK Tour. In April, they sold out three consecutive nights at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete's, breaking the previous record of two, in one day and in July they performed to a huge audience on the King Tut’s Stage at TRNSMT Festival.

The band played their biggest Glasgow show to date at Saint Luke’s in Glasgow in September (the show sold out in minutes) and will now close the year off with a hometown show at Edinburgh’s Assembly Rooms.
