Dreaming in ColourProductions
happy birthday to you
Dreaming in Colour Productions – it’s the sort of name you are not likely to forget. Most music-goers in Leicester would have been to at least one of its gigs. Tonight they celebrated their birthday – the anniversary of the foundation of the group in 2013, the same year that this magazine went live.
Many of the shows put on by DCIP have been reviewed in this magazine. Most of our monthly round-ups of live music have included at least one DCIP event.
Here are just a few of the shows that were feature articles over the previous couple of years, together with some photos from our library to jog your memory about those nights.
Earlier this year, we featured Some Sort Of Showcase, a series of gigs organised by DCIP in association with The Honey Label Ltd.
In 2015 we published out Gigs Of The Year feature article. DCIP found a place in that with their Upstairs/Downstairs show in February.
Chasing Cadence was one of the band to take to the stage for the Upstairs/Downstairs gig on 31st July.
A list of bands and artists that have appeared at DCIP shows reads like a roll-call for the famous and loveable both from Leicester and from the rest of the world
In May 2015, DCIP were at The Soundhouse putting on Little Dead Town and a raft of other bands to support headliners Breathe In The Silence.
Abandon Her topped the bill at The Cookie in March 2015
A performance we described as ‘sensational’ was delivered by the band New Priorities at the Shed in February 2015 at another of DCIP’s shows.
In the same month Omaha topped the bill at The Soundhouse.
Upstairs/Downstairs was featured in a review of a show at The Shed that featured The Stations, Weak Knees, Creatin’ Havoc, The Summer War and The Sedations and another line-up of acts in the basement.
Digging back into the archives, DCIP was one of those featured in our review of Leicester’s promoters.
