Reptile – January 2015

This was an event that was supposed to happen in December 2014, but unfortunately a police cordon around the venue on the night resulted in a last-minute cancellation. All concerned returned to Nightclub Kolis on Saturday night, and this time everything went to plan. The centrepiece of tonight’s event was Jayce Lewis’ band Protafield making the trip from South Wales to London to provide a particularly memorable live event. My first set of the night was immediately before their show, the second later in the night.
