MetalTalk Gig Of The Week / The Rock Den, Hatfield, returns after enforced break

Iconic grassroots music venue The Rock Den is back after the enforced COVID-19 break this Saturday, 21 August 2021, at Breaks Manor, Hatfield, Hertfordshire, a short walk from Hatfield train station.

The Rock Den is a monthly live music rock night organised by Dan Archer, who held the first night celebrating Hatfield’s rock icons on 8 June 2013.

The inclusive and welcoming crowd mean that the venue is a favourite stop-off for bands who all appreciate the support and great atmosphere generated by the rock and Metal crowd. The evenings, held once a month, are also a great opportunity for budding photographers to practise their art.

The Rock Den house band, Dean’s Addiction, will kick off the entertainment at 7 pm for this Saturday’s event.

The Smokin Prophets will then bring their high octane Hanoi Rocks meets sleazy rock ‘n’ roll glam infusion of the New York Dolls to the stage.

Punk rockers Born To Destruct will again be unleashing their Destruction Rock ‘N’ Roll and party atmosphere on the Hatfield stage.

Closing this month’s ‘RoarGust’ show will be The Hot One Two with their classic rock mixed with today’s style, presence and a great live show.
