York Blues Festival returns for a third celebration at The Crescent in York. The two previous events have sold out waaaaaay in advance so don’t hang around if you want to come, particularly looking at the line-up they have for us!
The band of XTC’s Terry Chambers, supported and blessed by XTC’s Andy Partridge and Dave Gregory.
With hits including Making Plans for Nigel, Senses Working Overtime and Sgt Rock (Is Going to Help Me), XTC was one of the UK’s most exciting and influential bands. But as the band’s success snowballed and the tours grew (including globe-trotting spells with The Police and Talking Heads) XTC main man, Andy Partridge, pulled the plug on touring making XTC a purely studio-based entity.
A jazz, soul & funk party featuring a couple of young university bands in York, DJs and good times in true Ouroboros fashion.
Our first Ostrich Beats event, hosted and curated by Ola Szmidt, will be bringing an eclectic mix of techno, electro, drum & bass, garage, ambient and experimental music in support of MAP Charity.
Passionate, principled, and refreshingly plain-spoken, Louisa Roach will not be cowed into silence. As She Drew The Gun, the Wirral-based singer-songwriter has spent the last seven years cementing her reputation as a vital voice in the alternative scene, using punk-infused psych-pop as a vehicle for exposing injustice and for advocating for a fairer and more tolerant society.
After two consecutive sell-out years, Carl returns with a brand new show! Expect stories, observations & audience interaction. Always an exciting night, join this dynamic and versatile performer for a truly unmissable evening of comedy.
Luke is a Macho Macho Man. He came up with the title whilst listening to his Les Mis album for the 28,000 th time. Luke tries to work out what masculinity really means with the help of Louis Theroux, the cast of Downton Abbey and even Jürgen Klopp.
