Sunday 23rd May 4-6pm – OVER/AT: Vocal work with Rylan [one trans, non-binary, and gender-diverse, and one LGBTQ+]

and gender-diverse voices – whether speaking, singing, or howling.
Working with Wharf Chambers this summer, OVER / AT will be presenting workshops which
introduce vocal techniques, improvisation, and imaginative approaches to exploring your own
voice. These workshops will prioritise trans, non-binary, and other gender-diverse participants,
regardless of previous musical experience.

Wednesday 26th May – Leeds Anti-Fascist Network

fundraiser gig for migrant solidarity


28th,29th & 30th of May – One in, One out: Leeds’ Smallest Gay Bar

Created by artist Lucy Hayhoe, One in, One out: Leeds’ Smallest Gay Bar is a playful interactive installation exploring the role of the gay bar in contemporary queer culture. The project asks what we want to preserve and what we want to change as we reflect on a year that has presented huge threats to the existence of queer spaces which occupy a unique position in our cities. As the needs of the queer community change, and we grow more aware of intersecting identities – is the gay bar part of the future of queer space? One in, One Out explores nostalgia for lost LGBTQIA+ scenes, the consumption of queer space as novelty and what it means to be queer and alone.

Friday 15th October 8pm – lice Hubble + Western Edges + Andrew DR Abbott

Alice Hubble is the solo project of Alice Hubley, and the product of one lady locked at home with her enormous collection of synthesisers. Inspired by the 70’s recordings by Tangerine Dream, Ashra and Mike Oldfield (particularly the records he made with his sister Sally), Alice takes a more delicate approach; a distinctly feminine take on the 70’s progressive synth sound.
Western Edges is the ambient/electronic solo project of Richard Adams, founder member, alongside his brother Chris, of the legendary Leeds band Hood and front man of The Declining Winter. Inspired by the countryside in the Aire Valley, Western Edges music has been compared to Boards Of Canada, Aphex Twin, bvdub and Basic Channel.

Andy Abbott is an artist, musician and writer who lives in Halifax, West Yorkshire. He is best known for his deafening guitar work in the leftfield rock bands That Fucking Tank and NOPE but recent output as ‘Andrew DR Abbott’ centres on instrumental compositions for 8-string baritone acoustic guitar.


Friday 3rd December 7:30pm – Part Chimp £11

Having mostly laid dormant since 2009, London noise-rock titans Part Chimp finally returned in 2017 with a new album Iv, released via Rock Action.
Iv followed three acclaimed studio albums, a live record, compilations and split singles and EPs alongside artists including Torche and Hey Colossus, sharing stages along with the way with the likes of Melvins, Deerhoof, Harvey Milk and Isis.
Since their formation in 2000, Part Chimp have carved their own place in the archives of heavy music, with their fuzz-laden seismic rock. With Iv, the band have recorded their most precise piece of work to date, perfectly balancing crushing and intense riffs with undeniable melodies.
With nods to boundary pushing artists from the 60s to the present – from MC5 and Sabbath, to Big Business, Earth and Harvey Milk – it’s clear Part Chimp are not content to simply be labelled as one of the UK’s loudest bands. In everything the band creates, songcraft is as important as the volume at which is played. This has never been more true than now.
 
 

 
Friday 4th Feb 2022 – ANTAGONIZERS ATL 7:30pm £8 advance £10 door
Never losing sight of goals, and pressing onward amidst countless obstacles, Antagonizers ATL have delivered an unbelievable follow up to their debut self-titled LP.
Adding a sixth member, enlisting a few talented friends to help with some key tracks, and really taking the time to hone in on their songwriting, has created an album with strength exuding from every orifice. This record ups the ante, and shows that they only plan on conquering more challenges and goals head-on; eventually taking their incredible live show back out across the globe to share these great tunes with you!
While the world remains more chaotic than anyone would like, and we collectively work our way out of the divisiveness we find in everyday life, it’s good to know that there is strength, consistency, and a unified message and sentiment at least within the greater punk scene!
