We are also very grateful to Young Rebel Set frontman, Matt Chipchase (aka Billy The Kid) who has kindly agreed to step in as main support due to the Woven Project's unfortunate enforced withdrawal from the bill. Matt will also be on Dermot O'Leary's show on BBC Radio 2 this Saturday where he will be performing live and also talking about the release of Young Rebel Set's debut album which was released to great acclaim last week. We're really proud of the guys here at TKASG Towers! If you haven't got the YRS album yet you can find it here: Amazon

We are so incredibly proud to announce a very special show by Minneapolis six-piece, Dark Dark Dark. One of just six UK dates as part of a European tour which includes supports for The National and Low, our show at the Westgarth SC on Monday 16th May is destined to be one of those truly special evenings and we are so thrilled to be able to bring them to the region.

The band feature the dual vocal talents of Nona Marie Invie and Marshall LaCount and they will be in town to promote the release of their album, Wild Go which is now available in the UK through Melodic. You can purchase it here:
