Knaves Kitchen

History

For over 21 years Oporto has brought the best drinks, music and atmosphere to the loving crowds of Leeds with the best food & drink, resident DJs and weekly live music curated by Dead Young Records and their talented friends.

Located at the edge of the city centre, it’s a short stride from all transport links but a world away from your average small bar & venue. With a 120 capacity venue attached to the infamous Call Lane bar you can plan or attend a huge range of events with us or just let your hair down in a safe and inclusive space for fun lovers from all walks of life.

Whether you’re dancing on the bar, watching an intimate candle lit acoustic show or losing it in a sweaty rock gig, Oporto punches well above its weight, with a newly installed PA, stage & acclaimed vegan junk food pop-up Knaves Kitchen there’s plenty more fun to come.

Tallies navigate an unfamiliar world on their confident self-titled debut album, which blends elements of shoegaze, dream pop, and surf rock into a fresh sound that’s all their own. The band was founded by singer and rhythm guitarist Sarah Cogan and lead guitarist Dylan Frankland, a couple who met in a sound engineering class while attending Algonquin College. Tallies’ sound was fully realized with the addition of Frankland’s friend from childhood rock camp, drummer Cian O’Neill, and bassist Stephen Pitman. In a year since relocating to Toronto, the quartet have played shows with bands like Mudhoney, Hatchie, Sloan, and fellow Toronto band Weaves. They come to Oporto on 10th September! 🎧 - https://spoti.fi/2FktrIt Tickets👉 http://bit.ly/talliesleeds

“Arguably born the wrong side of the North Atlantic and of a bygone era: one where oiled boots and thick trousers stomped the streets of New York City, it'd be rational to assume Edinburgh-based Cheap Teeth were part of this scene given their aptitude for deep vocal melodies, howling guitars and romantic organ breaks. Their hastily ratified DIY style deals in post-punk refrains alloyed with West-Coast garage rock influences, spawning raucous live performances which would more than reconcile a 70s CBGBs gig and provide the proverbial blood, sweat and tears. Don't miss them at Oporto on 4th September FFO - Squid / THE NINTH WAVE 🎧 - https://spoti.fi/2ImNt7b Tickets 👉 http://bit.ly/cheapteethoporto
