LOST MERIDIAN

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.

PORL WHOS

"Sound like a Dr Seuss band, but there’s no curly horns here. Just surfy garage rock."

- Bang the drum magazine

THE CONTRAVENES

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.

An acoustic duo from God's own Country (West Yorkshire), Suki (Hannah) and the Tomcat (Tom!) rock a range of retro covers and originals that thrill, shiver and will make your head turn!

Tally Ho! presents:The Smittens + Owl & Mouse + The Seven Inches

The Smittens are a hard-working globe-trotting independent American twee pop band from smittensBurlington, Vermont who like to think of themselves as friends first and open-hearted indiepop revolutionaries after that. Max Andrucki, Missy Bly, Colin Clary, Dana Kaplan, Holly Chagnon, and David Zacharis switch up instruments, song-writing, and singing to create brilliantly lyrical and hyper-catchy pop songs of all shapes and sizes.


The Seven Inches have long been heroes amongst Leeds’ indiepop and DIY scenes, winning hearts everywhere with their bizarre onstage props, trumpets, synths and cardboard keytars. If this makes them sound like some self-conscious novelty act, rest assured that nothing could be further from the truth – The Seven Inches play it from the heart every time.

 

Doors: 7.30

£5 on the door, no advance tickets.

Massicot + Beards + Commiserations

Wharf Chambers presents - massicot

Massicot - [Geneva] - brilliantly danceable, rhythmic, joyous, post-punk. Thoroughly excited to have them back at WC. Reminds me of Wet Dog/Shopping/Vialka/J'menfous/Trash kit/.... all the good stuff.

Beards - "At first Beards’ sound might point to freethinking post punks such as The Minutemen, Units or Delta 5 but the songs wrestle it out through the full gamut of noisy punk-disco, progressive time signatures, moments of majestic AOR, Post-hardcore angles and chaotic Beefheart-esque stomps, successively waylaying any ideas of progness or punkness along the way"

Commiserations - NKOTB [kind of] tune laden noise rock wonderfulness from pifco/etai/beards members. Like Arab on Radar/ Ex-Models/Yowie and all that. 

 

£5/4 unwaged/skint etc. no one will be turned away....

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?change gears

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/past-initiatives/big-conversation/

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.


** This will be very similar to the event on 10th June with the same name - we're repeating it to include more people in the conversation **

He calls it KELLER GOSPEL for it’s meant to shine into the darkness of basements and other godforsaken places or souls."
