We are ecstatic to announce that the launch of our new EP "Brother Sister" will be taking place on the 23rd April at Oporto Bar on Call Lane. Tickets are available in the link below, or £5 on the door. Entry will also entitle you to an EP download code which you'll receive on the door! We would be thrilled to have you there and share a tip-top evening together. Hosted by our good friend and bearded wonder Nick Simcock and with support from the less-bearded, equally as beautiful Jasmine Kennedy. THERE WILL BE CAKE. Mary is going to make lots of cake for everyone so get there early for a bit of sugary goodness. -------Hunting Bears------------ A Leeds-based orchestral folk sextet with a penchant for full-band vocal harmonies. Celtic harp, violin and bowed double bass are nestled amongst electric guitar, keyboards and heavy-hitting drums. Influences: the cross-rhythmic maximalist textures of Bon Iver; the intricate vocal harmonies of The Staves; and the songwriting craft of Ron Sexsmith and Loudon Wainwright III. They love to make music together, and perform to those kind enough to listen. Here is the lead track from our EP, Primrose Hill: https://soundcloud.com/huntingbearsband/primrose-hill ------Jasmine Kennedy------- 'Introspective, contemplative, armed with a voice to stop you in your tracks.' Jasmine Kennedy is an acoustic singer/songwriter who sings from the heart; her lyrics a collection of throw away observations and bittersweet tales from the teenage heart which possess a remarkable power to stun an audience in to silence. At the age of 16 her debut album ‘I Don’t Have An Uncle Pat’ was self-released and since then she has toured the UK and shared stages with the likes of Seasick Steve, Joseph Arthur & RM Hubbert, as well as performing at a number of festivals including Live at Leeds and Bingley Music Live. All whilst preparing material for a second album and maintaining a loyal devotion to Coronation Street. Potentially the next Tracy Chapman, this young musician has immense talent and an endearing charm. http://jasminekennedy.bandcamp.com/

The Spook School are four friends from Edinburgh using a raucous mixture of indie-pop, feedback and nudity to create a fun live show.Their debut album 'Dress Up' came out on Fortuna POP! in 2013 with lead single 'I'll Be Honest' gaining airplay on 6music with Steve Lamacq, being playlisted on Amazing Radio and the video being described by Clash Magazine as "A joyous, colourful, comedic visual rant". Lovely things important people have said about them... "Sweetly shambolic" - The Guardian "the future is safe in The Spook School’s hands." - MusicOMH "Simple, fun, loud and sweaty" - Artrocker Heathers is the love & squalor guitar pop trio from Los Angeles consisting of Michael Francis, Thom Lucero, and Michael Wegener. The band formed in 2013 and released their first 7", "Teenage Clothes", on Death Party Records in September of that year. The band's second 7" is due out on Death Party in April. This is not only their visit trip to the UK but their first tour ever, so be kind and bring flowers. Heathers are currently working on their debut LP.

They have a penchant for cats, exclamation marks, and vintage photography. £4 adv.- www.wegottickets.com/event/266942 Wednesday 30th April 8pm - 11pm Oporto, Call Lane, Leeds

Swiss duo, Klaus Johann Grobe, play a kind of danceable Krautrock informed by early '80's New York punk funk pioneers such as ESG. Driven by an organic yet metronomic beat aligned with synth, chant-like vocals and a monstrous funky bass, this is seriously bum waggling electro-freak goodness. The music does seem to aim towards a certain kind of hypnosis, particularly as the sleeping pill echo-heavy vocals cycle over the locked grooves the pair throw down. This band are certainly aiming towards the more dance-orientated arena of Kraut music, aligning the metro pulse of Klaus Dinger and Kraftwerk's calculators to more biological factors - kind of like moss growing on the mainframe. The duo played selected UK dates in early 2013 in support of their vinyl only album release that gained a great Shindig review, Louder than War artist of the day and Norman Records Single of the Week. Klaus Johann Grobe will return in September 2013 with a single release to coincide with their UK tour and appearance at the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia.
