hwts x ʜʏʙʀɪᴅ: Henry's Cellar Bar Takeover
Join us on Friday the 23rd of Feb for a hwts takeover at Henry's Cellar Bar on Morrison Street (just off Lothian Road). We've also invited our friends from HYBRiD along to help soundtrack the night with us. You might already know these guys from their sell out events such as their Fringe Warehouse Party, their Abandoned Victorian Swimming Pool Party or their residency nights at Fly Club.
Henry's Cellar is a 180-capacity underground venue which we've been wanting to play at for a while so we can't wait for this one. Expect similar scenes to our January event at Sneakys.

«This wee music venue is situated just off Lothian Road (aka the best alternative if you're in the mood for drinks and music but are suffering from Cowgate-fatigue). Henry's attracts a diverse and somewhat raggle-taggle bunch of musicians you wouldn’t see in more conventional haunts. Just to be clear, this is definitely a good thing. The stage is a small square wedged into the back corner with two pillars dividing the floor. One pillar stands on the outside corner of the stage, obstructing the view of at least one person in any band with more than three members. Strangely, that's what's good about Henry's. It's also nicely situated beneath Lebowski's, perfect for pre-gig White Russians – because that's a thing, right?
Back to Henry's – not only does it offer diverse gigs, clubs and open mic nights, there's also a modest door charge and decent drink prices. It's got that awesome community vibe where you can talk to strangers without feeling creepy or getting your head kicked in. Nice.» — The Skinny
