Cosmic Slop – MAP Fundraiser (Ouroboros)

The legendary Leeds party heads to The Crescent for a special fundraiser for MAP CHARITY, based in Leeds. All profits to MAP, who are fighting against the threat of developers, in order to purchase their building and retain their inspiring creative educational programme. As music promoters working with an independant venue in a city seemingly increasingly full of luxury developments, we can really relate to their cause, and hope you can too.

Dr Phil Hammond

A real doctor with an axe to grind; black comedy with a political edge. Phil Hammond is a GP, writer, broadcaster and possibly the only comedian to have appeared at a public inquiry. He is Private Eye’s medical correspondent and has appeared on Have I Got News for You, The News Quiz, The Now Show and Countdown. He is rude about everything (politicians, doctors, death, drugs, sex, himself) but in a funny way. Free swabs and sick notes for all.

Roddy Woomble (Idlewild) + Tom Joshua

Having toured the world as frontman of Scottish Indie giants, Idlewild, acclaimed songwriter Roddy Woomble recently released his fifth solo album ‘The Deluder’.
