Latest news for tonight is that we are definitely going ahead with the gig tonight. Unfortunately the Birds and Beasts can't make it out of Huddersfield but the Blind Dead McJones boys are up for it with Al Brampton supporting...and possibly other surprise guests!

The Blind Dead McJones boys are back at Chapel FM with a night of stunning live music.

Hopefully we will be able to get Birds back in the near future. They made a real impression when they played the Chapel FM 24-hour musicathon in December and we couldn't wait to get them back at a more reasonable time of day (they famously agreed to play the 8am Sunday morning slot at the musicathon and arrived in their pyjamas of course!)

As for the name—it's more than just a catchy title, it's the band ethos. In fact if David Attenborough was in a band...

"Birds and Beasts display a natural instinct for memorable pop music. Evolved whilst stuck in a log cabin during a German snowstorm, the band channel their love and knowledge of animals to inform their classic sound and distinctive voice. Reflecting our own lives through the virtue and violence of the animal kingdom, these songs get under your skin."

Supported by...Kaninchen describes her genre of music as "little repeaty songs", A loop pedal songwriter who likes her voice to be presented to you many times over the top of itself.Her songs are as beautiful as they are fascinating. You can have a listen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LN5XfQC4Qmc 

Come along for a night of great music in a beautiful setting...

Birds and Beasts

Sun 10th Dec '17, 8:00am

The relentless march of nature, the vicious circle of life, the raw, wild call to summon forth from your loins the next generation. These are the things that inspire Birds and Beasts
