We’re back in Leeds this weekend and it coincided with us seeing Carson Wells for the very first time live last night, they played in the Fox and Newt along with Pop Raft, Blood Sport and Baton Rouge which was put on by our dear friends at Fancy Claps.
We picked up some of their new t-shirt so we’ll be placing them in the shop as soon as we get back and just so you know we are running very low on their LP. They are off to London tonight closing out the Baton Rouge tour at the Buffalo Bar and joining them on that bill are Plaids!
There are plenty more with gigs coming up so here’s a little rundown:
If you’re in Dublin, The #1s are opening for Thee Oh Sees in Whelans tonight, doors are at 8pm. Next week you can catch them at Sweeneys, on Dame St, playing with a rake of other great bands.
Speaking of Plaids earlier, the 7” is finally ready and the band will be doing an instore show at Nottingham’s Music Exchange to release it on 17 May. They will be hitting the continent in August for a two week tour and playing a few more gigs around the UK before they cross the channel so be sure to catch them!
We’ll be taking orders for the record as soon as we get back to Cork, you can stream it over on our bandcamp still for the time being.
That’s it for now, enjoy the weekend. x
