Tally Ho Promotions presents The Spook School + Grubs + Finnmark! + Crumbs

Facebook event pagespook

The Spook School are a four-piece indie-pop-rock'n'roll band from Edinburgh with a debut album 'Dress Up' out on Fortuna Pop!. They make noisy pop songs exploring issues of sexuality and identity, and sound like the Buzzcocks combined with the nosier end of C86. They have a new album out in October and it's very good. Their drummer is a right laugh. 

Grubs feature members of Joanna Gruesome (Owen and Roxy), Trust Fund (Roxy) Two White Cranes (Roxy - yeah she's in every band ever). They make melodic, loud/quiet indie pop with occasional shouty bits and have really good songs. 
Finnmark! is a Leeds-based pop band, focusing their attention on the things most important to them: Scandinavian cinema, islands of the Swedish archipelago, and cycling everywhere they go. 
Crumbs are a brand new band from Leeds, so new that they don't even have a website yet or any internet presence, so you will have to trust me when I say that they are ace and you should get there early to see them. Think Delta 5 meets Shopping.

Chorusgirl + T.O.Y.S + Danopposite + Molars + Ste & Eddy's birthday party


Facebook event page

Chorusgirl {Fortuna Pop Records} make noisepop, blending the sounds of Lush, the Cure, The Breeders, Pulp, the Bangles, surf, girl groups, melodies, dirt, jangle and noise into a swirling, shimmering mix that spins your head until you’re dizzy. The lyrics are personal, delicate and angry, about losing and giving up, but all of that heartache and anger is layered underneath enough noisy rubble and happy fizz. Album out on Fortuna Pop November 2015


Leeds/London based 3 piece with keyboards, fuzz bass and drums, T.O.Y.S. play scuzzy pop songs at pace. With a new album up their sleeves and awaiting release in 2016, the band will have another fistful of fresh tunes to bop you with.


danopposite is the vehicle with which Daniel Hearn and Matt Robson realise their off-kilter hip-hop fantasies. They happily vacillate between the witty (yet decidedly non-comedic) and the serious, elegantly directing their wry look at the pervasive braggadocio of mainstream rap.


I saw Molars supporting the Lovely Eggs in Wakefield a few months ago and thought their moody, motorik indie freakouts were a joy. Book 'em! Said I.

FC St. Pauli - 1. FC Nürnberg
FC St Pauli brought to you by YSPysp
"War - never again! Racism - never again! Third Division - never again!" FC St Pauli in Hamburg was just an ordinary football club until the late 1980s, when it became a popular hang-out of a local community with a distinctly bohemian flavour. The increasing hordes of left-wing fans gradually influenced the mood in the stadium and, over the years, the direction of the club. In 2011 a group of Yorkshire-based St Pauli fans came together to form an official fanclub. Yorkshire St Pauli is now recognised as one of the radical club's most active fan groups, with screenings of games, concerts and benefits. Come and join the cult of St Pauli.

Fictions of Every Kind: Black Friday

Our early words of encouragement read, "If you write, you're a writer," and we believe that as much now as we did FictionsSmallthen. 

Welcome to Fictions of Every Kind: Black Friday, where we invite you to muse upon stock market crashes, gloomy weekends, 30% off sales in your local Curry's, and whatever else you can tenuously fit in with the theme. 

We're super glad to be bringing two world-class writers to Leeds at this event, in the form of: 

KIRSTY LOGAN Kirsty is a writer from Scotland, UK, whose debut short story collection The Rental Heart won a Saboteur Award. Her most recent collection, A Portable Shelter, is a collection of linked stories about loss, identity and the purpose of stories, inspired by Scottish folktales. She lives in Glasgow with her fiancee and rescue dog. 

TANIA HERSHMAN Tania's stories and poems have won various prizes, been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and broadcast on Radio 3 & 4. Between 2009-12 she was writer-in-residence in the Science Faculty at Bristol University, where she received an Arts Council England grant to work on a short story collection inspired by a year spent in a biochemistry lab. Her upcoming debut poetry collection, due out in 2016, won 2nd prize in Munster Lit's Fool For Chapbook competition. 

+ Music (tbc) 

+ Writers' open mic, at which short fiction, flash fiction, poetry, true stories, and excerpts of larger work are all welcome. Please keep your contributions at 5 minutes or under. 

This event is supported by the Leeds Inspired Grants Scheme.
