Victim, Complex - SOLD OUT

The first year I’ve toured in Leeds and I’m quite giddy about it. Also, it looks like I’m in a book club so we can all sit down with a modest white wine after and analyse my show!

Kiri Pritchard-McLean: Victim, Complex (Sold Out) 7.30


Kiri is back with her latest and greatest show to date, Victim Complex. Make sure you catch this unique, insightful, and utterly hilarious rising star of stand-up!

You might have seen Kiri on Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, The Russell Howard Hour or heard her on The Now Show. You might have no idea who she is, that's fine too. What you should know is, she's very quietly been going mad for a few years and, to borrow a phrase from Uma Thurman, she's been 'waiting... to feel less angry'. So, it's time to talk about victims, love and lies. You might not believe her, but she's used to that.

★★★★★ - “This show was heart-wrenchingly, tear-jerkingly funny, with an honest sentiment and an empowering message”
The Voice

★★★★★ - “Fusing humour with biting reality in a way that is very powerful”

Mr Ben & the Bens live in Leeds

8:00 PM20:00

Mr Ben & the Bens live in Leeds

Join the Party as Mr Ben & the Bens head out on their second headline UK tour in 6 months!

With support from label pals
Family Selection Box

and more TBA!

BUILDING on the success of their first year, DIY-pop favourites Mr Ben & the Bens are releasing two of their most popular songs on a limited 7”.
The release comes just as the band embarks on its second headline tour of the UK in just a few months.

Released on Bingo Records, the Nova Scotia 7” sees the band put out two live favourites, along with a vinyl-only bonus track.
It showcases a band known for their excellent live show taking that chemistry into the studio and recording as a unit for the first time.
Ben explained: “The tracks were recorded over a four-day holiday in Margate at PRAH Studios. We arranged the songs as a live unit and recorded them in the same way. We used loads of percussion and old analogue synths; going for a new wave sort of sound inspired by power pop and Elvis Costello.

“Nova Scotia is about finding footage of a festival in Halifax, Nova Scotia called Pop Explosion on YouTube, which is still going. I saw videos of the festival in the 90s and it seemed like a real destination for alternative art and music with people travelling from all over the world to be there.
“I love the idea of fringe places becoming the centre of something, so I guess that song is about learning about that, but also about being able to do it from the comfort of my bedroom in this information age.

“Valley of Moons is about the Lune Valley where I am from. The etymology of the place name has its roots in the lunar cycles. The song is written from the perspective of somebody living in the small town I grew up in planning to murder their boss on the full moon, but eventually bottling it.”
Mr Ben & the Bens broke through in 2018, receiving regular airplay on BBC 6 Music and performing live in session on Marc Riley’s 6 Music show three times.

Speaking of his music, Mr Ben said: “This project was born in a barn in northern Lancashire in 2012.
I became obsessed with recording music on the side of other projects, one day the side project became a live outfit and everything just seemed to click. I’m not a great musician technically speaking, I play guitar upside down and the keyboard with two fingers but I guess I’ve always been into music that was made by untrained ears. I value the approach of someone who doesn’t know the rules,’

The band has also been played on a number of other UK radio stations, as well as across the world in America, Canada and Australia.
Last year they had their first headline UK tour.They have also played with The Wave Pictures, The Lovely Eggs and British Sea Power, earning great numbers of fans along the way.
Nova Scotia comes as a limited edition coloured vinyl in a screen printed PVC sleeve. Included is a zine, artwork and a number of other special items. Another secret track is also included on the vinyl, and will only be released in the physical format.
It is due for release on April 13, 2019.
For more information email bingorecs@gmail.com

Praise for Mr Ben & the Bens
Marc Riley, BBC 6 Music (re: The Bluest Blues): "This is a great tune, I like it an awful lot. One of my tracks of the year." “ Perfect Pop”
Piccadilly Records, Manchester: “It's an intoxicating combination of excellently written melodies and perfectly fitting vocal strafes.”

Madame Jazz / Freya Roy + Kashu

Madame Jazz presents Freya Roy's UK album launch tour with support from Kashu on Wednesday May 1st.

Freya Roy
MOBO's & Help Musician's supported artist Freya Roy brings her debut album 'AHLKE' UK tour to Hyde Park Book Club on May 1st where she will be performing songs from the album for the first time with her full band soon after the album's release on April 29th. Freya will be joined by UK jazz pianist and composer, David Austin Grey, drummer Greg Burns from Leeds-based Neo Soul/Afrobeat-inspired band, Necktr, and Leeds bassist Sam Williams.

Combining hip-hop, jazz and Neo-Soul Freya's sound is driven by luscious harmonies, catchy melodic hooks and soulful R&B grooves. Kicking off the release with the debut single 'Midnight Train' in February, it's easy to understand why she's receiving support from both inside and outside of the industry.
The Norwich based musician, producer and label owner has spent years patiently refining her sound throughout her studies at Birmingham Conservatoire and Leeds College of Music where she was tutored by Abstract Orchestra's musical director, Rob Mitchell.

Freya is dropping AHLKE under her independent label FCR music, founded in 2012 to help change the perception and visibility of women and minorities in the creative industries. The album has been an exciting project with the likes of some of Submotion Orchestra's top players on the record including Si Beddoe (flugel) pianist and composer Taz Modi and mix engineer Dom Howard.

2019 is set to be a big year for Freya which kicks off this spring with the release and UK tour of 'AHLKE' in April.

Kashu
Performing as a trio for us this evening with Ozzy Moysey on double bass and Joe Love on drums, Kashu soothe and scintillate with their rich undulating sounds. Olivia Bhattacharjee's (Noya Rao) exiting new originals project is set to get your soul swaying - Olivia's songwriting is captivating and unique. Keep your eyes peeled for Kashu's debut EP which has just been recorded at Henwood Studios.

TOM SPEIGHT
May

7:30 PM19:30

TOM SPEIGHT

Tom Speight is making up for lost time. Laid low by illness, beset by problems both personal and professional, the songwriter returned to what he does best: writing songs.

Using his convalescence as a musical break, Tom found that music simply tumbled forth, a torrent of ideas, a flood of melody. “I wanted to do it,” he says. “I came out of a big relationship – four or five years – and then I was pretty low. I’d just come out of two major operations, so it was a good, cathartic way of getting on with things.”

“You have to live life, don’t you? Get your heart broken, meet someone and start something new. Experience things.”

Armed with some of his finest songs to date, when Tom Speight finally decided to push the button he did so in remarkable style. Four Eps were released across 12 months, racking up more than 12 million Spotify plays, earning support from Radio 2 and a high profile session on Jo Whiley’s show. Desperate to play live, he chalked up more than 80 shows in less than 12 months, from London to Poland, from the Scottish Highlands to the continent.

“It’s amazing, yeah,” he admits with a smile. “We went to number one in Brazil. We were number seven in the global viral chart, and number one in their viral chart. Nothing’s changed, really. I always thought the songs were good, otherwise I wouldn’t have put them out there.”

Supremely confident in his own work, Tom has developed a close relationship to producer Chris Bond. Working at Bond’s barnyard studio - “No phone signal, no internet… there’s not even running water!” - the pair focus purely on music, getting as close to the songs as they possibly can.

“We did all the foundations live,” he explains. “And then strings, cello, and piano we’d put over it afterwards as overdubs. I think you can hear it in the songs, that it’s not polished. It’s a human thing, which I think is missing in music.”

“I could give him a dozen songs and he knew pretty much exactly what he was going to do with them. And that was a great feeling, as well. He had a real vision for them.”

As a kid, Tom Speight listened endlessly to those early Leonard Cohen albums, even going as far as to borrow his older sister’s classical guitar. That element of simplicity remains in his music, but his recent work feels more inclined towards Ryan Adams’ Autumnal romanticism, or even the simple yet affecting Celtic soul of Damian Rice, where each note has its own place driven by a deeply personal connection to the music.

That connection is something that fans feel, too. An entirely organic success story, Tom Speight has returned from the brink to find success in the only way he knows how – great songwriting, delivered on each and every gig. “Fans call me ‘friend’ - they think I’m their friend!” he exclaims. “I write messages for them when they buy the deluxe CD. You feel like you get to know people. I know what some of them do for jobs or how their wife is or something like that. It’s that nice feeling of having personal interactions with the fans. It’s important.”

With four more Eps planned for 2017 – and countless international shows on the books – Tom Speight is able to relax a little, to breathe a little easier. “I think there’s been months where I haven’t written a song,” he shrugs. “I don’t think that’s a bad thing, though. I don’t think you should force them out.”

Wholly natural and completely organic, Tom Speight is able to find success at his own pace. Time to get caught up.

Stefanie, Stijn and Peter teamed up to start Brutus in 2013. They all met while playing in different bands from the same region of Leuven (Belgium). In merging their different ideas and musical tastes they have formed a strong union, both musically and personally.Drummer vocalist Stefanie mixes black-metal blast beats with math-rock flourishes whilst belting out the most impassioned vocals, shifting from deceptively melodic to out-right larynx-punishing in the blink of an eye. Guitarist Stijn Vanhoegaerden takes ethereal post-rock tones to hardcore punk levels of speed and energy aside Peter Mulders powerful sub-frequency shifts. It’s the way in which the band mixes post-rock construction, metal dynamics with hardcore energy and prog rock all the while lacing it with pure pop melodies that make Brutus’ sound so unique and all their own. Brutus’ debut album BURST (2017) was released by Hassle Records in UK and Europe, and then later by Sargent House for USA and the rest of the World. In 2017-2018 they have toured extensively all over Europe, playing many large festivals as well as direct support to Russian Circles, Thrice and Chelsea Wolfe on their European tours.With a new album slated for release in early 2019, they are ready for more. Trouble comes in threes, so does Brutus.

“If there was a mission, then it was to create something like absurd office funk,” says Stats’ Ed Seed, recalling the birth of his band.

He was working a series of banal London office jobs, but rather than switch off or despair, Seed used this conventionally sterile backdrop for creative inspiration. “It was about taking things that are considered boring or are overlooked,” he says. “If you stare at anything long enough, it becomes weird.”

Staring into the infinite oddness of office life was interrupted when Seed “fluked” his way into La Roux’s band - which itself proved a further inspiration for the evolution of Stats. “I'd always been in scrappy indie bands,” he recalls. “Then I met Elly and her crew and thought ‘wow’. This kind of pop music, I always thought it only happened over in Hammersmith, you had to have tens of thousands of pounds and a major label. But I realised you didn’t need a huge budget to make something more stylish than your average band.”

Opposite: Poems, Philosophy and Coffee Book Launch

Opposite: Poems, Philosophy and Coffee Book Launch

Book launch for Opposite: Poems, Philosophy and Coffee by Helen Mort and Aaron Meskin

Co-sponsored by the Centre for Aesthetics, HPBC and The State of the Arts.

What happens when poetry and philosophy connect? Over coffee at Leeds' Opposite Cafe, award-winning poet Helen Mort and Professor of Philosophical Aesthetics Aaron Meskin set out to answer that very question. They came up with an intriguing idea for a creative dialogue: Aaron would select essays from a range of philosophers who think and write about art and aesthetic matters, Helen would respond to them with an original poem, then the authors of the original papers would respond to the poems.
The result is an engrossing and multi-faceted series of conversations, which (like all the best coffee-shop discussions) take a variety of unexpected turns – topics discussed include the art of tattooing, graffiti, Belle & Sebastian, food, rock climbing and whether there's such a thing as bad art. With the project now collected in this unique, innovative publication from Valley Press, readers of poetry, philosophy, and even those new to both can join the authors for a coffee and a fascinating journey through modern thought.

VELVELA | Unplugged + THE BROOKES, TOM O’NEIL

VELVELA are performing an unplugged set with friend The Brooke’s and Tom O’Neil (Stellar) in preparation for the Leeds leg of The Bottomless Rosé tour.

VELVELA are a lean mean rock machine with a barbaric fuzz rock vision powered by animalistic, howling vocals and menacing riffs.

Inspired by blues influenced classic rock greats and modern alternatives, VELVELA belong on playlists alongside The Zep, QOTSA, Black Keys and Royal Blood.

Formed in 2018 in the northern depths of Yorkshire, VELVELA holed themselves up in a disused factory to work on their sound. Brimming with energy and ambition, and with a palette of inspirations that ranges from jazz to house music, old school r’n’b and proto-punk, the band decided to paint with exhilarating colours.

The end result is intimidating and feral, with the smell of vintage valves glowing red. Perfect for, but not restricted to, fans of Hello Operator, Rivals Sons and Band Of Skulls, VELVELA - Sean, Todd and Tom - regularly play in clubs across the North.

CRACK CLOUD

Crack Cloud is a mixed-media collective based out of Vancouver, BC. Modelled around harm reduction philosophy, Crack Cloud operates as a rehabilitative outlet for a revolving cast of multi-disciplinary artists across Canada.

N0V3L

Novel is an engine of entertainment and social criticism weaponizing rhythm and melody against the unsound powers that be. Rigid new-wave, angular funk, polyrhythmic disco and intellectual punk together approximate a radical new sound that forms the principal means of ideological circulation. Drawing influence from such mindful predecessors as Devo and Public Enemy, Novel offers an empowering, politically-charged stance in fierce opposition to the modern cultural landscape, reflecting the corrupted nature of humanity back upon itself.

A sense of foreboding and comic paranoia pervades the debut EP: corporate power looms large, technological isolation seems omnipresent, and bureaucracy mines the psyche of detached participants. This constructed reality presents a hard-earned escape through critical thinking and direct action, acting as a call to mindfulness and moral resistance. Translated through the power of electric music.

Alaskalaska // Leeds

After supporting Nilüfer Yanya at The Brudenell Social Club and a brilliant set at Live at Leeds 2018, ALASKALASKA come to Leeds on Friday May 17th 2019 at Hyde Park Book Club

For Fans Of: Art School Girlfriend | Caribou
Listen: https://spoti.fi/2HoTVe3
Tickets are on-sale now from: http://bit.ly/ALASKALASKAHydePark19

South London group ALASKALASKA have announced details of their highly-anticipated debut album The Dots - set for release via Marathon Artists on 3 May 2019.

Headed by Lucinda Duarte-Holman and bassist and producer Fraser Rieley, ALASKALASKA formed in 2016 after Duarte-Holman introduced Rieley to her friends Calum Duncan (guitarist), Fraser Smith (saxophonist), and Gethin Jones (drummer). The resulting recordings - early self-titled EP and 2018 singles ‘Meateater’ and ‘Monster’ - combined an appreciation for pop songwriting form with a myriad of sounds, tastes and styles. ALASKALASKA’s idiosyncratic approach grabbed them attention from Pitchfork, The FADER, Noisey, NME, DIY, BBC Radio 1 and beyond, while support slots with fellow genre-dodgers Alvvays, Cigarettes After Sex, Porches and Nilüfer Yanya soon followed.

Melding together their disparate influences in off-kilter pop and jazz gives their upcoming debut record the push-pull feeling of a group existing without any boundaries. Not fitting neatly into either the post-punk explosion, which defined their South London home a few years back, or the more recent emergence of a future-facing jazz underground, ALASKALASKA dodged the area’s typicalities. The lyrical potency of the former and the languid, freeform attitude of the latter can be felt across The Dots, but ALASKALASKA paint those influences in their own broad brushstrokes in the same way as Björk, Kate Bush, Arca or Fever Ray before them.

ALASKALASKA will release The Dots on 3 May before heading out on a headline tour of the U.K. - which includes a headline show at Hyde Park Book Club on 17 May.

to May 31

DJ Lubi//Soul Rebels Present Project Hilts//SogoRock//DJ NikNak

Since their packed debut gig at RE:SOUL back in October 2019, Project Hilts have made a big spalsh in the vibrant Leeds jazz/soul/hip-hop scene. Coming from Leeds College Of Music, they are led by London rapper Hilts (Danny Hilton), a veteran of the London grime scene. Hilts came to Leeds to study production after getting tired of making beats in his bedroom on his laptop. Once at the college of music, he teamed up with some great young musicians and singers there to form an 8 piece live band that brings together jazz and grime with hip-hop, soul and Latin beats. Since the debut show, they've played a support slot to Tetes De Pois at Soul Rebels at The Wardrobe, made their first video courtesy of Tight Lines and played their debut London show. Now they step it up with their first headline show in Leeds at Hyde Park Book Club. That basement space will be rocking to the jazz grime beat for sure. Come and get a taste.

SogoRock are a Leeds-based band formed in 2018 by two Hungarian brothers studying at Leeds College Of Music, Bela Horvath Jr and Laky Franz. The band has 6 members (4 current students at Leeds College Of Music and 2 alumni musicians), who bring together their musical loves - jazz, funk, r'n'b, rock, Caribbean music, pop, gospel, electronica, Hungarian folk - into a unique "no borders" global music fusion sound. The band are : Bela Horvath Jr (piano and keyboard), Laky Franz (keyboard and talk box), Josh Gumbs (drums), Reverend Beanz (electric bass), Nik Svarc (guitars) and Matt Hines (saxophone/electronics). They are starting to gig out around Leeds. Come and check them out. Something really different from the jazz/soul/global beats scene of Leeds.

DJs on the night are Lubi (Soul Rebels Sessions/RE:SOUL/KMAH Radio) and special guest DJ NikNak (BBC Radio Leeds). NikNak is one of Leeds' most open minded DJs whose roots are hip-hop - she's a great scratch DJ - but she also bosses of so many other genres, from jazz to dubstep, house to soul, reggae to Brazilian beats. A producer in her own right, she often guests on live gigs as a turntablist with Leeds bands Necktr and TC & The Groove Family. Check her weekly show "BackStage" on Wednesdays 7.00pm on BBC Radio Leeds.
Doors 7.30pm. SogoRock 8.15pm. Project Hilts 9.30pm. DJs Lubi and NikNak before, between and after live sets.

Sifaka Sessions #003 Sifaka / Pablo's Paintings / Shaku / Felka

Sifaka Sessions #003 is an indoor festival taking place on the 31st of May bringing together some of the best live music from across the Leeds music-scene.

Taking over Leeds' most exciting venue - The Hyde Park Book Club - the event will also include galleries and displays of local artists, as well as specially curated food and drink. Expect big riffs, funky beats and tasty treats.

Sifaka Sessions #003 builds on the success of sold out Sifaka Sessions #001 & #002. These events saw various Leeds bands (The Seagulls, Kumiko, Engine, Lim And The Lovers, Sifaka) play fantastic sets to packed out audiences.

******* TICKETS ********

There will be a super-limited early release of £4 tickets.

After those are all gone, tickets are £6 advance and £8 OTD

******* LINE-UP *********

The line-up for Sifaka Sessions #003 is seriously big - showcasing some of the finest musical and song-writing talent in Leeds at the moment:

Pablo's Paintings

Pablo's Paintings look to focus simple melodies through crooked lenses. The resulting off kilter pop, nods to the avant guard, psychedelia and folk at times, but never drifts too far from a hook.

Inspired by Picasso's quote "action is the foundational key to all success", Pablo's Paintings began working together in early 2018, with no particular aim, other than to create an outlet for dormant ideas. Since, they have developed a sound that taps into a rich history of melodic song-writing and developed a keen DIY work ethic, self-recording and producing all of their early output.

Shaku

*Read in the voice of Johnny Bravo*

Shaku welcomes you all! We are a six-piece band hailing from all four corners of the globe that spearhead the genre we like to call "Frog Rock" and want nothing more than your undivided enjoyment!

Felka

Felka are Rose Wheeler and Tanisha Badman; "poplicious folk duo" with "brazen lyrics and lush harmonies" hailing from the rolling hills of West Yorkshire. Since forming in 2014, they have appeared on the infamous Sofar Sounds in London, York, Nottingham and twice for homecomings show in Leeds.

Championed by BBC Introducing, they are played by the station on a regular basis. Gig accolades include playing Millennium Square in Leeds for Under The Owls Festival and supporting Martin Barre from Jethro Tull, Samantha Fish (U.S), Keiran Leonard, Baka Beyond and Wildwood Kin. The name is taken from a second World War novel, 'Portrait of a Young Forger'. The non-fictional character Felka's act of self-sacrifice to save her missing brother Adek struck a chord with the two musicians as both beautiful and heroic.

Bolstered by a new rhythm section, the band spent time with legendary producer Andy Hawkins recording three brand new tracks in a converted chapel. "Best Friends Bike", "Reoccurring Dream" and "Hourglass" will be released throughout 2018.

SIFAKA

Since forming in 2014 Sifaka have become an integral part of the vibrant Leeds music scene. Dubbed ‘Rock N’ Soul’ their sound is raw, powerful and straight from the heart, sitting at
the crossroads between the soulful sounds of Alabama Shakes and the heavy blues of Led Zeppelin.

Their mesmerising live show is a sweat-soaked rollercoaster of infectious grooves and soaring solos. At any one moment their music travels through Mardis Gras, CBGB’s in downtown New York and 60’s London.

Following on from a year supporting Kaiser Chiefs and Pete Doherty, and Imarhan and Melt Yourself down at the Brudenell Social Club the band have released three singles over the summer to critical acclaim.

The Stroppies

The Stroppies

Please Please You & Brudenell Social Club presents

The Stroppies

“Whoosh is a silly word,” says Gus Lord of the Stroppies. “There is something completely nonsense about it, especially when removed from any kind of context. For me it conjures up images of something absurd and transient - two things fundamental in the experience of listening to or making good pop music.”

Whoosh may indeed be a silly word but it almost onomatopoeically captures the sound and essence of The Stroppies first proper debut album, one that breezes along with boundless energy, a refrained pop strut, infectious grooves and the sort of jangling guitar melodies that sound like a prime-era Flying Nun band.

Between them, the Melbourne-based band - currently comprising of Gus Lord, Rory Heane, Claudia Serfaty and Adam Hewitt - have been in countless bands such as Boomgates, Twerps, Tyrannamen, Primetime, Blank Statements, The Blinds, White Walls, See Saw and Possible Humans. The band formed together around a kitchen table in 2016 with a heavy focus around the essence of collaboration and a DIY ethos. This led to an acclaimed cassette release of lounge room recordings, which was then pressed onto vinyl to more acclaim. The Stroppies next step was then taking their DIY approach to home recordings into the studio to make a transitional leap to what would become their proper studio debut. “Whoosh is our first concerted effort to make something with a bit more sonic depth,”says Claudia Serfaty (the bands other primary songwriter). “It was an attempt to take working processes that had been established in a home recording setting and build on them with a broader musical palette in the studio in order to push the band into new territory without compromising what made initial releases so endearing.”

Endearment is something that the Stroppies have no problem retaining on Whoosh. It’s a record that possesses all the spunk and gusto of a young band hurtling forward yet also knowing when to take their foot off the accelerator. It’s an album that simultaneously feels young and fresh but wise beyond its years. “Whoosh is the most robust sounding release we have ever recorded,” Serfaty says. Combining taut post-punk rhythms, indie jangle, seamless melody and sugary pop, it’s a record that Lord says is influenced by: “All sorts of things - life, work, relationships, old cartoons and the last 60+ years of guitar-based pop music in some form or another. This includes everything from Bill Fay to the Clean to Stephen Malkmus.”

Whoosh is a record that combines a natural sense of urgency with a thoughtful approach. Something that the recording process itself was emblematic of. “Budgetary restrictions meant that we had two days to lay the foundations,” Serfaty recalls. “So it was axe to the grind: burning through live takes interspersed with tea and Turkish food from the local kebab shop, which culminated in twelve half finished cuts, rough and ready.” That was the urgent part, what then followed was a focused and labour intensive approach to get the most out of the bare bones of the record as possible. “We spent hours building up, stripping down and mixing the work that had been recorded the month prior, throwing everything we could think of at the songs to see what would stick. We utilised whatever was on hand to pull sounds, including but not limited to vintage synths, rain sticks and an old door frame that we used for percussion.” This was done with Zachary Schneider, a friend of the band, budding producer and established musician who is most notable for his guitar work in bands such as Totally Mild, Free Time and Full Ugly.

By the end of that period the band got so absorbed in the record that they almost lost sight of it. “I'm still a little too close to this record for it to evoke anything in particular,” Lord says. “Except for perhaps dull anxiety. Towards the end of recording I felt like I was drowning in the process and lost all clarity on what it meant or it's value. Kind of like saying a word over and over again - it starts to lose all meaning.” Although with time comes clarity and even amidst the fog of making a record that has taken over his life, Lord knows the band has made something special. “Reflecting on the process I feel really proud of the album.”

Gia Margaret, Live in Leeds

Brudenell presents...

Gia Margaret
+ Special Guests TBA

04.09.2019 | £10.00 ADVANCE (+stbf) | 19:30 Doors

https://giamargaret.net/
https://www.facebook.com/gia.margaret/

-

Chicago singer/songwriter/producer Gia Margaret describes her music as “sleep rock.” It’s a genre all her own, combining elements of folk, shoegaze, slowcore, ambient electronica and trip hop. For her self-produced debut album, There’s Always Glimmer(out July 27, 2018 on Orindal Records), Gia Margaret crafted twelve gorgeously melancholic lullabies to combat her own insomnia, and to salvage some beauty from the brighter and darker moments of her life.

There’s Always Glimmer explores relationships between friends, family members and significant others, often in past tense. Sparse verses isolate mundane moments of domestic and urban life, and choruses ache with earnest expressions of yearning and loss. The disarmingly simple language of Gia Margaret’s lyrics, when carried by the melodic sparkle of her singing voice, have the power to elevate an ordinary moment into something supremely nostalgic and sentimental. A ride on a train, a hand on a shoulder, a dog in a yard, the light of the moon through an apartment window are each made significant and sacred, worthy of examination and preservation.

As much as it addresses the unease in our lives, each song on There’s Always Glimmer is steeped in loving comfort, awash with gentle sounds to usher the still minutes before dreams come, when we’re left alone amidst the shadows and the echoes of our memory. There’s Always Glimmer exists to fill the darkness and the quiet.

‘brings to mind some of Elliott Smith's darker simplicity whilst courting the outsider fragility of an earlier Ariel Pink' - God Is In The TV Zine

'someone we should all keep and an ear and and eye out for' - Gary Crowley BBC Radio London

'His work runs the gamut from solemn folk to fuzz rock. Rodrigue has gone from everyone else’s guitar-man to leader of the band, and we like what we hear' - American Standard Time (KEXP)

Dylan Rodrigue’s music has always been a journey, exploring all genres and musical forms. Dylan was raised in small yoga-based intentional community in Northern California . . . a very quiet and peaceful place with a quiet and peaceful music scene. This all changed at the age of seven when Dylan’s father snuck a copy of Who’s Next into his bedroom. This sparked a passionate exploration of music from the Beatles to Fugazi, the Pixies, Elliott Smith and Vic Chesnutt. He began playing guitar and writing his own songs at age 8, studied classical guitar in high school, and eventually obtained a degree in songwriting and avante-garde composition at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts).

Dylan’s professional career in L.A. has shown the same sense of adventure. As a talented guitarist and singer, he has performed with alt-country bands (currently with Sie Sie Benhoff), complex math rock/hardcore bands, and a 13-piece travelling vaudeville band! With the release of his debut album Cat’s Game, Dylan returns to his true passion . . . sharing his own music.

Cat’s Game shows the full range of Dylan Rodrigue’s musical pallet. His deeply personal lyrics are presented in a variety of musical settings, from stripped down acoustic folk, Neil Young inspired electric guitar rock, and Stooges-esque punk.

Dylan Rodrigue’s musical journey is wide, varied and unpredictable . . . and it's definitely a trip worth taking!

The Psychology of Spiritual Awakening with Steve Taylor

The Psychology of Spiritual Awakening with Steve Taylor

Join us for the first event of the series!

***

What does it mean to be spiritually awakened, or ‘enlightened’? Does the state just occur spontaneously or can we cultivate it?

Psychologist Dr. Steve Taylor - author of the best-selling book The Leap: The Psychology of Spiritual Awakening - will show that the ‘awakened’ state is more common than is generally believed. He will highlight some of the main characteristics of the state, including intensified perception, acceptance, gratitude, a transcendence of separation and inner quietness.

Drawing on his years of psychological research, Steve will share stories of ordinary people who have shifted into an ‘awakened’ state following periods of intense suffering, such as a diagnosis of cancer, severe depression and bereavement. He will also discuss cases of people who were ‘naturally’ awakened, and expressed themselves as poets and artists.

Steve will lead some exercises to help cultivate some of these characteristics of wakefulness, and show that that ‘wakefulness’ is not an unattainable esoteric state but one that can be developed by everyone. He will even suggest that we need to move collectively towards the state of wakefulness in order to live harmoniously as a species.

Shaku: Unplugged

You've guessed correctly... Your favourite electric frogs are putting down their lightbulbs and pullin' out the candles with the best acoustic event since Dylan went electric!

Expect only acoustic instruments (no cajons sorry), turtlenecks, glasses, plants, and more turtlenecks as Shaku transform their usual heavy antics into a more matured and aged cheddar.

They'll be performing in "The Snug" room on the left hand side of the venue where you usually get your coffees so iz gonna be supa supa intimate.

Helping them will be some of their beautiful friends:

Joshua ZERO
A true renegade, this guitar-slinger looks like someone you'd sleep with but sounds like someone you would love forever. His songs of hardships in love and in life resonate with all and we're sure he'll serenade you with his boyish charm.

Hannah Willwood
A singer-songwriter who will truly capture you from beginning to end, her beautiful music and aura will have you fixated and you'll probably shed a few tears thinkin' bout "the days". She'll be joined by her band for this one!

**

This event will be pay as you feel, if you've got some spare cash to spare (heh) then feel free to donate on the night to help all these hard-working musicians keep doing what they do! SEE YOU THERE ♥
