History

“Oporto was founded by myself back in the mists of time. I had one clear aim; to create a bar in Leeds that I wanted to drink and hang-out in – luckily others wanted to do the same. This principle still stands for me and the Oporto team. I hope you enjoy the unique space we have created. I also hope you enjoy the great drinks and crackin’ tunes that make Oporto one hell of a night out!” – Ged Feltham – Owner & Founder

DUSTY POP ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS ** El Goodo ** + special guests __________________________ El Goodo Welsh psych-pop band El Goodo return with their long, long awaited third album By Order Of The Moose, due out on Cian Ciaran’s (Super Furry Animals) Strangetown Records. Recorded over the course of 8 years in an old derelict cinema in their home village of Resolven, the album is a continuation of where the band left off in 2009 with their previous effort Coyote. Wielding the wide open spaces of spaghetti westerns with the close melodic harmonies of girl groups and the good humour of Nuggets inspired garage rock’n’roll, El Goodo takes you on a trip through their fascination with 60s music. Comprised of brothers Elliott (drums, percussion) and Jason Jones (guitar, vocals), Pixy Jones (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Lewie Sewers (guitar), Matthew Young (keyboards) and Andrew Cann (bass), El Goodo (named after a Big Star song) are a band enthralled by the past. They recorded the album on a 16-track with a small collection of faulty equipment, creating a collection of melodic pop songs, embellished with strings, brass, sitars, harmonicas, xylophones and vocal harmonies (and then seemingly covered it all with dust), that you’d expect to find on some forgotten 60s record that someone has stumbled upon in their attic. Despite the sheer length of time and the difficulties encountered, with By Order of The Moose El Goodo have achieved something extraordinary. The album is fully realised, cohesive and demonstrates the band’s incredible knack for catchy hooks, eloquent songwriting and terrific arrangements. By taking an odyssey through the music of the past, they have shaped a sound that is both timeless and points towards a promising future. __________________________ DOORS 7.30PM | £9ADV | DUSTYPOP.COM

DUSTY POP ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS ** Luna Pines ** + Laminate Pet Animal (stripped back set) In The Morning Lights Denton Thrift _______________________________ Luna Pines Leeds based self-produced Luna Pines showcase modern electronica and polished Dream Pop mixed with ambient, almost post-rock sounds on their upcoming EP, ’The House We Lived In,’ which will be released via the bands label Sixteen Records on June 1st. Having played sold out local shows at prestigious venues like Belgrave last year, the 4 piece take influence from acts like Bon Iver, The Japanese House and James Blake, creating a nostalgic air of ambience, with soaring synths and heavy bass lines, reminding listeners of soundtracks similar to the brilliant Cliff Martinez score for 'Drive'. They’ve gained a lot of attention from prestigious blogs such as Hidden Herd and BBC Introducing with their last two singles. They are gearing up to play many respected venues across the UK, whilst using their solid foundation to take their music to new heights this year. ‘Luna Pines combined light, delicate, tones with pulsating choruses. Their musical dexterity and intricacy proved to be captivating' – Counterfeit Magazine 'The kind of band you just have to tell everyone about.' - Dan Alani, Reprezent Radio 'The kind of record that unfurls after each listen, revealing brilliant new facets on each play.' - Alan Raw, BBC Introducing 'Part The Japanese House, part Peter Gabriel, it’s delicately ethereal; full of wistful romanticisms yet without feeling heavily reliant on cliche. A truly beautiful, searingly honest listen.' - Crack In The Road, about second single, 'My Own Ceiling.' When self-empowering and completely DIY are components in the same conversation, there is a kinetic energy pulsing with endless possibility. Such is the case with Leeds electro-pop quartet Luna Pines. - Drunken Werewolf The DIY Leeds quartet create atmospheric and cathartic soundscapes wrapped around kaleidoscopic synths and pulsating beats, recalling a host of our favourite dream-poppers such as The Japanese House and London-based duo IDER. - Hidden Herd _______________________________ DOORS 7:30PM | £5ADV | DUSTYPOP.COM
