This Is Radio Silence play a special headline set on Thursday 20th August at OFF THE CUFF in Herne Hill, London. The show is the first TIRS will have played on its South London 'home turf' since September 2012 (at the sadly now-closed Half Moon venue, also in Herne Hill) and those attending can expect a set of around 70 minutes in length.
Trains from St Pancras International take just 23 minutes and run every 15 minutes. The last train from Herne Hill to St Pancras is at 23:39. Alternatively, Herne Hill is 10-15 mnutes bus journey (No.37) from Brixton for Victoria Line Underground services.
The venue is located in the arches beneath Herne Hill railway station, at 301-303 Railton Road. Entry to the gig is FREE.
