Lost Meridian – Schools Out!
Exams over, assessments done, time to let your hair down and check out some amazing up & coming Leeds acts!
Four guys who met at Leeds College of Music and joined forces to seek the ultimate atonal riff. Their blend of blues driven rock with a contempory edge, delivers melodic tunes that get engraved in your head.
"Sound like a Dr Seuss band, but there’s no curly horns here. Just surfy garage rock."
- Bang the drum magazine
Put The Velvet Underground in a blender with early Libertines and you get a sound like The Contravenes. 2015 is going to be the year for this band to cause a stir.

How do we up our game in the next four years? (Round 2)
What do we need to make a more just and sustainable world from here in Leeds?
How do we recruit more people to the global justice movement? What do we need for more effective actions? How can we coordinate strategies?
Over the past four years Tidal has been working on projects to better support, connect and grow the global justice movement in Leeds. We've got lots to be proud of - Leeds for Change, Skill Shares, Summat New, Leeds Fuel Poverty Action and more.
But we know that the next four years are going to need us to step up a gear. We are going to have to fight harder than ever to stop climate change, reverse widening inequality and prevent rampant exploitation of the people and resources of our planet.
Join us for an evening of exploration, where we can have a real hard look at our movement and see what kind of tools, ideas and plans we need over the next four years to create a massive, effective and massive global justice movement in Leeds.
Background info: Tidal is a small organisation which works to support, connect and grow the global justice movement in Leeds. Five years ago we held a series of 'Big Conversations' to ask activists what the movement needed. From that came our 5 year plan of skill shares, joint campaigning, Crisis/Opportunity conference, Summat New and Leeds for Change. You can read about the Big Conversations here: www.leedstidal.org/initiatives
Now we want to build on the foundations we've made over the past four years, and help make the movement bigger, and more effective. So we're facilitating this event, where you can meet like-minded people and think together about how to achieve this, and we'll be taking notes about how best we can serve you over the next 4 years.

The Dad Horse Experience (GER) Backyard Burners (UK) Zealous Doxy (UK)
The Dad Horse Experience - "Dad Horse Ottn was a hellraiser and a punk rock scoundrel till, one day, he saw the light. The banjo light. And, drawing from southern Appalachian gospel and from the depths of his own scarred soul, he started to preach the Word through rough pure honest song. He calls it KELLER GOSPEL for it’s meant to shine into the darkness of basements and other godforsaken places or souls."
