Rock City opened in 1980, and first band to play there were The Undertones in December 1980, who returned 25 years later to play at a 25th birthday all-nighter

The club is ran by Daybrook House Promotions. They run Rock City along with The Rescue Rooms, Stealth and The Bodega Social which are music venues around Nottingham City Centre.

    Saw bat for lashes, and it was amazing. Really close knit venue, and why are the crowd so polite; they didn't push/nudge me one bit when i was at the front..
