We are lucky this year to be collaborating with the lovely lot at WOOLGATHER art collective for their opening and closing nights to their art prize competition/exhibition. In case you're wondering what the Woolgathering people are about, feel free to visit their site. In a nut shell, they are a creative, hard working bunch of absolute nutcases who graduated from Leeds Met 2 years ago and have been plugging away at their forever expanding collective of artists since then. I was there at the last years one and had an awesome time. If you start saying 'Oh, well I don't know much about art and I always feel undermined intellectually whenever I even mention the word art' ... don't fret, this is a 'for the people, by the people' affair in that YOU decide who wins and thus YOU make your own opinions about the work on show down there Plus, they'll be plenty of drinks, performances and music to sink your teeth into as well. All the more reason to head down!
So, what will we be doing? Well I'll tell you. This year, Big Spaceship will be booking the bands and supplying both evenings with lush and wonderful sounds that will massage your earholes to the peak of auditory ecstasy. So, if you want to come down to sample the visual delights and be surprised by the musical ones or vice versa... I urge you to come down to what used to be the LOFT in Leeds Town Centre near the Bus Station on Friday 11 May and Friday 1 June. For details of the venue and how to get there visit here. Oh and one more thing, it is FREE!
So, here is the list of musical acts over the two days:
