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.

High & Lonesome and None But The Rain present... Cornwall trio William the Conqueror have been picking up praise from far flung corners ever since Ruarri Joseph took the step to go public with his erstwhile secret alter-ego. Debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, was released in 2017 to widespread critical acclaim, and their shows have been steadily winning over fans up and down the country. The indie-rock three piece sees Ruarri joined by bassist Naomi Holmes and drummer Harry Harding, channelling classic blues and roots through a grunge/indie filter, with diverse influences including The Doors, Ryan Adams and The Lemonheads. Praised for their grit and authenticity by the likes of The Guardian and NPR’s Ann Powers, they made their mark at AmericanaFest in Nashville, signing to Loose and sharing the stage at the UK Americana Awards 2017 with the likes of Van Morrison, Richard Thompson and Ethan Johns. Proud Disturber of the Peace was shortlisted for the 2018 UK Americana Awards "UK Album of the Year”. “a mighty launchpad for what's yet to come” Q ★★★★ "a thumping Southern rock and Americana grungy gumbo that hits you right between the eyes” Express ★★★★ “the kind of determination that can only end in glory” Gigsoup 8/10 Tickets: http://smarturl.it/wtc-leeds

DUSTY POP ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS ** SIFAKA ** + Vesent No Fit State __________________________ SIFAKA Since forming in 2014 Sifaka have become an integral part of the vibrant Leeds music scene. Dubbed ‘soul rock’ their sound is raw, powerful and straight from the heart. Sitting at the crossroads between the soulful Southern sounds the Alabama Shakes and the heavy blues of Led Zeppelin. Their mesmerizing live show is a sweat-soaked rollercoaster of poetic storytelling lyrics, infectious interlocking grooves and soaring solos. At any one moment their music travels through Mardis Gras in New Orleans, Woodstock, CBGB’s in downtown New York and swinging 60’s London. As accomplished multi-instrumentalists and improvisers their arrangements have a rich palette of colours as they take their songs to the brink of collapse, breaking them down into tiny particles of rhythm and melody before building into huge choruses. Their latest release ‘In The City’ - produced by GRAMMY-nominee James Towler – perfectly captures the energy of their live show and is available on all major music streaming services. Following on from a year supporting Kaiser Chiefs and Pete Doherty at Bingley Music Live, and Imarhan and Melt Yourself down at the Brudenell Social Club they are preparing to release three singles over the summer followed by a UK tour. __________________________ DOORS 7PM | £6ADV | DUSTYPOP.COM
