facebook event. Doors on Saturday open on 1pm. Entry is Pay What You Feel. Unfortunately DJ Benjamin Trout is no longer able to appear but we will still be having some vinyl djing inbetween the bands, more details to follow on that. There will also be homemade savoury and sweet snacks available (thanks to my parents and Pat Freeman).
The 7th band of the day at 18:50 will be:
Climbing Alice - Unfortunately performing live for the last time, certainly in Wakefield, maybe anywhere. It's a sad loss as they have been a great live band. Thom is planning to carry on under the name (there's a number of singles planned) but it will be studio based. Make sure you don't miss their farewell. Listen to Liberty X Killed My Childhood Soul.
Following on at 19:40 is:
Take Turns - Their first gig since the release of the debut album Cryptomnesia Crept late last year. Still not that well known even amongst PHOP afficionados, we think you'll love them. Listen to Everyone's Grudges.
Up next at 20:30 are:
Piskie Sits - Everyone's favourite, they should require no introduction to anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the Wakefield music scene. Listen to Who Do You Love.
Into the final quarter at 21:20 with:
The Spills - Another of the Merrie City's favourites, this will be their only Wakefield gig this year as they focus on writing the follow up to 2015's critically acclaimed album Collecting Dust. Listen to Heaven Smoke.
The penultimate band of the day at 22:10 is:
The Reacharounds - They didn't split up on the release of their debut album in 2014 after all. Instead the originator's of Heavy Roll are back with a new album's worth of new songs for our entertainment. Listen to 2nd Date.
Rounding off the night at 23:00 are:
The Ainsley Band - And sadly it's another farewell. After 4 and a half years everyone's favourite fraggle rockers are calling it a day. They'll be leaving us with some happy memories but there's still time for a few more so don't miss them. Listen to Jerry Garcya Later.
Preview of Sunday will follow shortly...
