We’re delighted to announce that Colchester indie-punk upstarts, PET NEEDS mark our return to Moles after many years!

The band, who are predictably signed to one of our favourite labels, Xtra Mile Recordings (home of Crazy Arm, Tom Jenkins, Skinny Lister, Frank Turner etc.) are on their largest UK tour, to celebrate the release of their 2nd album “Primetime Entertainment”.

No photo description available.


The 19 date tour takes in both some major towns as well as some tiny places, showing the bands dedication to the cause, and bringing their music to even the less well travelled circuit.

Pet Needs who have recently completed a European tour, supporting Flogging Molly, completed the Booze Cruise in the US and will be returning to the states in October, opening for Skinny Lister are literally playing every festival going in Europe this summer as well!!

Meaning you WILL see them at some point. I’d obviously say catch them at 2000 Trees, because, you know…. Trees. No one is working harder than this band right now!

Moles is of course the wickedest little sub-200 capacity venue in the UK. Located underground, the venue had a recent forced overhaul, after 2014’s fire and Covid that put it out of action. It now boasts an incredible PA, modern set up and a much improved experience!

Tour support are the wonderful aggro-punx 2 piece, GLITCHERS. Which is wild to see such a strong band supporting this gig!

All in all, an absolute killer shows, in a great venue with amazing bands. What more do you want?
