This is an important announcement for those of you who haven’t melted yet.
My summer will mostly be spent distributing sweat amongst my black t-shirts as I desperately try to prove wearing black punk band t-shirts is still cool despite the sun melting the Earth to liquid.
Saturday 2nd August I’m compering another Down By The River event at City Screen Basement, these are always lovely showcases of various acts and talents, details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/321439824687096/?fref=ts
I’ll be at Boomtown Fair 8-10th August, performing at 4pm on the Wandering Word stage on the Friday afternoon, which gives me plenty of time the following days to enjoy plenty of ska, reggae, folk, gypsy and The Street Dogs (flatcaps at the ready!)
Tues 19th I’ll be performed at Reclaim The Power. But that’s hush hush. So ssshh.
Wed 20th at the Woolpack, I’m launching a new zine featuring interviews with a variety of female musicians from York with ace poet Jenn Hart, musician Chrissy Barnacle, queercore band KINKY and local garage rockers Freaks + Geeks. More details soon.
Then Fri 22nd-23rd August is the big one: Galtres Festival where I’ve put together the Spoken word section of the Little Top and the Snapping Turtle stage. It’s going to be a wicked festival of folk, rock, theatre, comedy and poetry and you should come. All of you. We can melt together.
Then I’m finishing off the summer by supporting Chris Clavin in Norwich and York. Chris founded legendary Plan-It-X Records and plays in Ghost Mice, both hugely influential DIY cornerstones of my life. Sat 30th sees me saying some words at the Big Gay Bar all-dayer at the Woolpack, where I’m also launching their zine.
All through the month when I get chance, I’ll be adapting The Circle of Chalk/Caucasian Chalk Circle for York Youth Theatre’s 16+ November performance and I promise it’ll be my best play yet. Ever.
See you around!
