London based promotions and events, now bringing the best new music to you throughout the lockdown via our blog.

By The Freaks was founded in 2019 to bring underground alt-rock, post-punk and hard rock to the forefront of the London music scene. As musicians gigging at the usual venues around the city we decided to start putting together our own nights, inviting favourite acts to join us. These nights picked up a name, “By The Freaks, For The Freaks” the former part of which stuck.

Eventually so many bands were getting involved that the nights became less the occasional gig and all about a space for the more surreal and underground music London had to offer, we were building a scene.

More and more venues became destinations for By The Freaks (including The Gunners, The Beehive and The Amersham Arms) and bands from outside London were getting interested. A year later By The Freaks has set up residence at two classic London spots; Camden’s most famous venue The Fiddler’s Elbow and Brixton’s most infamous pub The Queen’s Head (previously home to Fat White Family). We cannot wait to return to both of these after lockdown.

By The Freaks exists to keep putting the best new music on your radar while keeping our website ad free and accessible to everyone.
