Four Sheffield school friends are looking forward to a special party tonight – as they release their first record at The Plug.

The Wired started as a school project for four sixth-formers at All Saints School in the city.

The quartet – singer and guitarist Caleb Smelt, guitarist Jacob Beaumont, bassist Richard May and drummer Paul Gordon – have been generating interest across Sheffield and further afield with a number of shows around the city, including gigs at places such as West Street Live and The Rocking Chair.

And to celebrate, they are having a launch party and playing live at Plug, Matilda Street, Sheffield city centre.

Guest supports on Saturday night are Time Sellers, The Mayfairs and Bailey Street.

Doors open at 7pm, tickets £6, may be subject to a booking fee also visit

The show is presented by Entertainment Sheffield and Gig Tripper, which gives local bands the opportunity to tour beyond their own city
