Some Sort of Threat – You Can Call Me Al

Thanks to everyone who came to the gig at Dock Street Market last night, it was a bit odd at times with talking levels but most people seemed to be into it (as seen by the great amount of donations people gave!) and all the acts were really awesome and are welcome back anytime at all (in fact Rory is back at this gig that Hello Bastards are putting on rather soon).  Dock St were awesome to work with and were helpful all night (and provided some rather amazing food) so massive cheers to them and I hope to be doing something again with them soon.

Other massive thanks go to the cool dude who came on and ended the night with a perfect Kinks cover and to The Mannions (TM) who rescued my shoe box full of 7″‘s that I left behind the bar (Toto, Kenickie and more – oof!).

Here’s a video of Rory Matthews (aka Some Sort of Threat) and Olive Anne doing a rather nice cover of a rather nice song.

El Morgan, Helen Chambers, Some Sort of Threat, Olive Ann – Leeds

Frankly I’m getting tired of these ‘…this is the last gig I’m doing for ages’ bullshit but I genuinely intended not to put any gigs on for the rest of the year but for reasons that will become apparent soon I REALLY won’t be doing any gigs from Oct onwards for a good whilst so lap this shit up!

Another reason for this gig is because come on who could turn down this loveable gang of Southerners?!  All of the artists playing this gig are top people and incredible musicians so it’s a real joy to put them all on together and to be having Dock Street Market host the event really tops the cake.  If you don’t know the venue it’s central Leeds, has it’s own bakery, amazing meat, veggie, vegan food and a shit ton of amazing drinks.  To top it off, it’s the Dock Street Market social on this night so there will be loads of people just coming to hang out so come on down…

The New Wave of Cut & Paste Presents…
…a night of uplifting folk music! Tuesday 7th August 2012 at Dock Street Market (Dock Street, Leeds) …
EL MORGAN
http://elmorgan.bandcamp.com/ Straight out of Southsea! If you know her and her songs – you love her, if you are yet to meet her then be prepared for the sheer awesomeness.  Huge of voice and heart, El’s punk inspired folk represents the finest on offer.
HELEN CHAMBERS
http://helenchambers.bandcamp.com/ London’s loss was York’s gain when Helen moved North.  Uplifting thoughtful country/folk bangers.  Imagine if you will Hank Williams were he a Northern Lady.
SOME SORT OF THREAT
http://somesortofthreat.bandcamp.com/ A man so young should not be such an accomplished musician, so leave your resentment and jealousy at the door!  Channelling Crass and Billy Bragg via an acoustic guitar.
OLIVE ANNE
http://oliveanne.bandcamp.com/ The wandering musician from Cardiff via Southampton and one of the soon to be huge folk trio THREE PAIRS OF SHOES.  Olive shows she can belt it out solo on this rare Northern gig.
There will also be the amazing opportunity to get involved with the usual Dock Street Market Tuesday Social where you can try your hand at knitting, letter writing or board games before (or politely during!) acts. There are loads of awesome drinks offers, including discounted Tea Pot Cocktails and a chance to try the highly recommended Root Beer Floats as well as Dock Streets usual fantastic selection of craft beers and tasty veggie/vegan/meat food menu.
The gig is FREE ENTRY but a quid or two chucked in the donation glass would be much appreciated to cover the act’s petrol costs. Feel free to come down whenever you like and bands will be playing from around 7:30
