Thanks to everyone who made it to the opening night of the first ever Leeds Festival Fringe, curated by our goodselves. There were two gigs on in Leeds, an acoustic do at The New Conservatory and RBs handpicked selection at Carpe Diem. We had a lovely time and would like to thank Mickey and his team for putting the whole thing on and the staff at Carpe Diem who were absolutely lovely. And, of course, to the bands:
Got things off the a cracking start, playing songs from their brand new 'Smoke Signals' EP, which got a crackin review in our most recent issue.
Jamie Mi Mye fiddled alone, playing his wonderful and wisftul tunes, minus his usual backing band. It was a lovely treat and makes us all the more excited for his upcoming album
We'd booked them way before they ended up winning Futuresound and claiming their place on the Leeds and Reading Festivals, so it felt like quite a catch to have them join us. Another blistering display. For an interview with them, see our latest issue.
Fresh from a tour of NYC and surrounding areas, and from a festival season including Latitude, Indietracks and SXSW, Standard Fare were as fantastic as ever, songs new and old mixing together in a set that had 'classic' written all over it from start to finish. We love 'em. For an interview with them, again, see our latest issue.
Thanks to all who made it down. For more info on the Fringe Festival, go here:
