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.

After much hard work and dangerously small amounts of sleep, Humans as Ornaments are proud to announce the release of our first single, The Only Other Way. To celebrate, we're inviting you all down to Oporto, for the Launch Party with our friends in NOSE, NARCS and Two Trick Horse. We'll be giving away copies of the single to all attendees, a physical CD package with artwork by none other than Tom Hudson (Pulled Apart By Horses). HUMANS AS ORNAMENTS - http://www.facebook.com/humansasornaments Humans as Ornaments are a 4-piece rock band from Leeds who are beginning to establish themselves amongst the plethora of local talent. After releasing their first song, 'Hangman', the band have played to full audiences at venues such as The Cockpit and The Brudenell Social Club. The band have a strong DIY ethos, and with this self-produced release they showcase the confidence gained from performing amongst their peers, aiming to expand on a sound that merges charming and memorable vocal lines with loud guitar riffs and driving rhythms. NOSE - https://www.facebook.com/nosenoise Big ol' riffs, songs about death and borderline sociopathy. Straddling Scarborough and Leeds as if the towns were two giant, nightmarish roller skates, NOSE have been upstaging the likes of Bleeding Knees Club, Wot Gorilla? and Post War Glamour Girls since early 2012. NARCS - https://www.facebook.com/NARCSband NARCS are an alternative rock band from Leeds. Their music veers from driven riffs and confrontational sneers to melodic lullabies, always served with a sense of story. TWO TRICK HORSE - https://www.facebook.com/twotrickhorse Two Trick Horse are a guitar/drums/bass noise trio from Leeds playing off-kilter indie rock with a healthy dose of post-hardcore. Inspired by a love of the early 90's Dischord output, 2TH produce tight noisy sounds best served live and loud. 7:30pm - 11pm Tuesday 26th November Oporto, Call Lane, Leeds £4adv from: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/247942 So come down, get footloose, and buy all our merch, so we can afford to do this more often!

Dead Young Records is proud to present the new single from Harry Ridgway 'Spilling Hearts & Spilling Heads'

Harry will be launching the single on the 12th of November at Oporto with support from Eaves & Sophie Pearson (Jacobean Ruff)

Tickets available online or on the door for £4, including a copy of the single and B side 'Shattered Sound, Sacred Ground'

http://www.wegottickets.com/event/246026

Originally from sleepy Lincolnshire. Harry ventured further from a young age and found himself in Shepherds Bush, London by mid-2011 where he began to really push performing and writing, drawing inspiration from the artists around him.

After a short tour of Living rooms, Open mic’s, University Halls and anywhere else he could find, Harry ended up spending two weeks in Leeds after a show. Enamored with the city, he moved there a few months later.

Harry’s moving and intense live performances have earned him bookings at festivals including Beacons, Live at Leeds and Fell Foot sound, as well a host of support shows up and down the country.

After a busy year gigging heavily in Leeds and elsewhere, Harry returned to the Studio to record ‘Spilling Hearts & Spilling Heads’ Teaming up with Dead Young Records, they endeavored to create a single that truly captures the natural feeling and honesty of a live performance.
