DUSTY POP ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS ** Air Drawn Dagger ** + Alexis Kings Penelope Tree ____________________________ Air Drawn Dagger Air Drawn Dagger are a female fronted Alternative Rock band from Sheffield with an eclectic mix of Electronic, Grunge, Punky - Angst- Pop sounds. The name Air Drawn Dagger comes from Macbeth as it is a “characterisation of an emotional outburst". Guitarist Lewis met Singer Maisie in 2014 and began writing songs in her Cake Shop after hours. Early gigs as an acoustic duo in front of old punks at Hardcore shows as well as Tapas restaurants got them playing all over Yorkshire. Twice. In 2015 Drum Assassin Ross Dore joined the band and their debut release received heavy support from BBC Introducing and the band began building up a cult fan base by constantly gigging across the UK. 2016 saw the band sign a publishing deal and released an EP to a sold out 150 capacity hometown show at Sheffield’s Corporation. This release received overwhelming praise from the underground press such as Hit The Floor, Mosh & Punktastic as well as further support from BBC Introducing Sheffield as singles “…Theirs for the Breaking” & “The Banshee” received frequent airplay. 2017 saw the band sign their second publishing deal, embark on extensive touring across the UK and support a plethora of artists from multiple genres such as Alt Rock, Metal, Pop Punk and more... (Junior, Kobra & The Lotus, Coast to Coast to name a few.) The future holds the release of a string of singles on Alya Records, non-stop touring and more adventures in sound. ____________________________ Alexis Kings Alexis Kings are a British rock band from St Albans in the UK formed in 2015 with influences ranging from The Rolling Stones and Oasis to the greats of Hip Hop,resulting in a classic dark rock and roll with an R&B undertone. The Band is composed of 5 members Brendan Aherne, Sam Privett, Fabio Bocca, Luke Carolan and Kalyan Rogers. Having independently released the self funded debut EP ‘Squire’ last July, the debut single, also titled ‘Squire’ went on to reach #8 in the Spotify Viral chart, one place behind Justin Bieber for one week. Spotify continues to support the band through their core playlists and the ongoing ‘Discover Weekly’ with the EP play count now reaching over 300,000 plays. The two singles ‘Squire’ and ‘Strawberry Blonde’ have attained national coverage through the likes of Huw Stephens on Radio 1 referring to the band as ‘that band we are really excited about,’ as well as plays from John Kennedy on Radio X. However, the lead single Squire continues to receive attention globally through plays on Triple J Radio in Australia to KCRW in LA. The band has also been supported consistently by the BBC who have selected them to play various BBC introducing stages and have recently had them on the Robert Elms show on BBC London Radio to perform a live version of ‘Morning Dianna’ from the EP. Most notably, The Kings made their Debut TV Performance recently on London Live’s: ‘The London Live Sessions.’ From the viral support of the debut EP, the band have been able to sell out shows within London from the likes of Proud Camden, The Dublin Castle and The Assembly. ____________________________ Penelope Tree Drawing inspiration from common situations, Penelope Tree aims to capture the mature side of Pop-Punk that is both meaningful and relatable. Hailing from Buckinghamshire, the quartet formed in the latter stages of 2015, and since then have worked tirelessly to create songs that en-capture what it really means to be young but getting older. ____________________________ DOORS 7PM | £6ADV | DUSTYPOP.COM

Dead Young Records & Pilbeam Presents (BBC Music Introducing) present a night dedicated to showcasing the best up and coming artists in the Yorkshire region. Shadowlark Cruel World Imi Wednesday 1st August 7.30pm - 10.30pm (then DJ's till late) Oporto, Call Lane, Leeds Ltd. tix £5 adv here: https://www.musicglue.com/oporto/events/ad0e2a70-2b78-0136-16a5-4e6db80c9029 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shadowlark Bursting onto the Leeds music scene last year, Shadowlark have quickly gathered a following. Their intricate, hypnotic synths and the soft and soothing voice come together to create magnificent electro-pop that I can't get enough of. 'See Each Other Right' and 'Control' are both exceptional singles that will be stuck in your head for days on end. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UyPLKh98Y4 Cruel World Since hearing a sneak peak of Cruel World's debut single 'Boxer', I've been hooked. It's the new project led by James from Post War Glamour Girls, but that hardly needs mentioning when their debut single is on the opposite end of the spectrum to PWGG. 'Boxer' is an addictive pop tune, in essence; the lyrics are sweet, full of nostalgia, and the instrumentation is so jubilant it's inspiring. Cruel World are a band I didn't know I needed. https://soundcloud.com/cruelcruelworld/boxer Imi Imagine the Stranger Things theme, and imagine it more intense, and more earth-shattering than it already is - and that's Imi. Imi is a brand new artist to Leeds. She's a classically trained vocalist, she creates fierce dark-synth tunes that transport you to an alternate land. Her live set is bound to be magnificent. https://soundcloud.com/imimusicuk/margins Make sure you don't miss the gig of the summer.

The band played their first concert at King Tuts Wah Wah hut on 26 June 2008[1] opening for American rap duo The Cool Kids.

In 2011 John Gerard replaced bassist Anna Smith and the band embarked on their first tour of the UK supporting Twin Atlantic. They released their first music video for ‘Paper Chase’[2] and were selected to perform on the T Break stage at T in the Park, making history as the first act to have the tent refuse entry due to being at capacity. A headline Scottish Tour followed this with a sold out date at Stereo in Glasgow.
