Pub Scrawl 2014 at The Harley

We are incredibly excited to be part of Pete McKee’s Pub Scrawl for the second year running. The event pairs local artists with the city’s independent venues and boozing spots to create a totally unique night out.

Last year’s event saw an amazing evening of live art, newly drawn-on walls and daft, sweaty live music at our place care of Tom J Newell and Drew Millward. Meanwhile, other venues saw the likes of Warp Films recruiting the crew of This Is England to serve behind the bar at the Washy and much more.

We’re very happy to have been paired up with We Live Here founder Jonathan Wilkinson, whose clean, graphic images of Sheffield landmarks are some of the most iconic images of the city currently in circulation.

The event takes place on Sunday 31st August, and more information can be found on the Pub Scrawl site.

Happyness at The Rocking Chair

For our second show at new Sheffield venue The Rocking Chair, we’ll have an intimate performance from UK slacker-rock outfit Happyness.

The band return on 8th October, having last played for us with Ezra Furman back in April.

They play in support of their highly anticipated debut full length, ‘Weird Little Birthday’, set for release on June 16th.

Having played to packed out venues at Liverpool Sound City and Live At Leeds, Happyness are winning admirers in their many and are set to continue their rapid rise into the summer of 2014! From North American college-rock, their clever, literate slacker-rock mixes breezy guitar jangles and breathy lo-fi vocals.

Tickets for the show are onsale now.

Allah Las at the Harley

We’re very happy to have LA garage-rock outfit Allah-Las playing at The Harley in support of their forthcoming second record.

Allah Las began gigging in Los Angeles in 2008, refining their live performance, and finally released their first 7” single Catamaran / Long Journey in 2011. In September 2012, Allah-Las released their self-titled debut LP. The album has been described as a “lost treasure dug up from the sand and polished to a perfectly faded sheen” and “a classic debut record, on the one hand immersed in melancholic nostalgia but on the other, enthused with a timeless charm”. Their sound combines the harmonies and pop hooks of the British Invasion, the trippy atmosphere of West Coast psychedelic bands, and the raw swagger of countless American garage rockers.

The band will play at The Harley on 2nd October, and tickets are onsale now.
