From York to Hollywood and back again, Twinnie has filled her time thoroughly. From acting in Hollyoaks, staring in major theatre productions, appearing in various US films and embarking on a singing career that’s seen repeat performances at Country2Country and seen her playlisted on Radio 2. This very short UK tour celebrates the release of her debut album ‘Hollywood Gypsy’.
We’re delighted to announce that alongside some of York’s other venues and cultural organisations, we were successful in our application to the Cultural Recovery Fund! This money will enable us to reopen safely, and survive till next Spring. We’ve got some fun plans in the meanwhile, but want to wait and see how the news develops over the next couple of weeks. As well as ACE and DCMS, we want to thank everyone who’s been supporting us, our incredible team and staff, as well as the musicians, engineers, and creatives who helped make our venue what it is.
With their new album Headlight, this all-female, Grammy Award nominated band have boldly broken genre convention, pushing beyond their bluegrass roots to embrace the album’s potential as a platform for change. They’ve delivered a collection of songs at turns fearlessly personal and powerfully resonant.
Avalanche Party is feral garage-punk rock & roll from the North Yorkshire Moors. Their sound is intense and immediate, so new yet so familiar, brimming with an urgency that explodes off the stage like the front lines of a war you didn’t even realise was being fought. Every note played through white knuckles, every word spat through gritted teeth.
A blend of virtuosic players, skilled producers and inspired composers join forces to create a unique, infectious sound drawing on jazz, hip-hop, afrobeat, latin, soul, reggae and dance music.
For fans of Bikini Kill, The Julie Ruin, Dream Wife, The Regrettes and The Ramones, Dream Nails are a punk force to be reckoned with. Founded by feminist activists in 2015, this hotly tipped band of witches mix political rage with contagious pop punk joy, winning hearts (and funds for abortion charities) wherever they go.
Legendary Manchester post-punk band A Certain Ratio are coming to York for the first time in forty years!
Be quick on your ticket for this folks.
Los Bitchos started off as a recording project after listening to a lot of Peruvian instrumental Cumbia from the 60s and 70s (Los Destellos ‘A Patricia’ is the song that got them together as a band), their sound can be described as The Shadows on a Tequila fuelled field trip to South America, whilst also channeling psychedelic rock and surf vibes.
Hailing from Aarhus, Denmark, Athletic Progression is an instrumental trio rooted in Hip Hop and Jazz. Deeply rooted in J Dilla-esque swing with heavy, meditative vibes, instantly recognizable and insanely catchy. But these grooves do not emanate from samplers and chopped up breaks – they are played live.
