Joshua Burnside / November and December 2018 UK Tour

 
By on Tuesday, 6th November 2018 at 9:00 am
 

Northern Irish art-rock singer/songwriter Joshua Burnside has recently announced a lengthy run of tour dates in England for the end of this year, as well as a pair of dates at home in Belfast to bookend the English dates. This tour is in preparation for Burnside’s upcoming EP release ‘Wear Bluebells In Your Hat If You’re Goin’ That Way’, which is a “reconstituted and embellished” deluxe version of his 2013 EP ‘If You’re Goin’ That Way’. The new EP is due out on the 11th of January 2019 via Quiet Arch. You can take a listen to its blues-tinged lead single ‘Black Dog Sin’ just below the tour date listing.

On 3rd December, Burnside will officially begin his University ‘Coffee House’ Tour, which includes, as you might expect, stops at University venues around England. Burnside will wrap up the tour with a show at Belfast Elmwood Hall just before Christmas on the 21st of December. Tickets for the following shows are available now.

WIN / Tickets to see the Computers in London -OR- Manchester in May

 
By on Thursday, 18th April 2013 at 11:00 am
 

Exeter blues/punk band The Computers will be releasing their second album ‘Love Triangles Hate Squares’ on the 29th of April on One Little Indian, so it makes perfect sense that the group will be touring in support of it in May and June. So what does the tour have to do with TGTF? We’ve managed to blag a pair each to their London 100 Club (Wednesday the 8th of May) and Manchester Deaf Institute (Saturday the 11th of May) shows and we want to give them away to two lucky TGTF readers. You’re asking yourself, how do I win a pair of these tickets? Well, keep on reading…

To be in the running for the pair of tickets of your choice, complete the form below with your full name (seriously folks, I need your real first and last name), your email address and which city you want to win tickets for (London or Manchester). Then answer this question: what is the name of their lead singer? (Hint: Find this out on their last.fm page.) Get your entries in by noon British time on Monday the 22nd of April. We’ll choose a winner from all the correct entries received then. Good luck! Please note: this contest is open to UK residents only, and duplicate entries will be discarded.

If you fancy buying tickets to see the Computers instead, their upcoming UK dates in May are listed below. Support comes from Crowns and the Dead Formats. And to get you in a Computers mood, I’ve embedded the video for title track ‘Love Triangles Hate Squares’ at the bottom of this post.

This contest is now closed and the winners will be contacted soon.

The Chapman Family / November 2011 UK Tour

 
By on Monday, 24th October 2011 at 9:00 am
 

The Chapman Family will be bringing their ‘November Offensive Tour’ to towns across the UK next month. Tickets are on sale now.

This was the info we got from the press release (straight from TCF’s mouths):

This November in homage to the legendary plot of 1605 we will be waging war with the leaders of this country and all the apathetic zombies who have allowed them to fuck us into the gutter. We are declaring a state of artistic emergency from within the “music industry” where creativity, relevance and integrity have been replaced by the banal, the pointless and the derivative. We are raising our colours and heading once more into the breach and seeking out those of you who like us can’t relate to the man sitting at the head of the nations table making decisions that neither help nor represent us or to the artists who claim to be like us and speak for us. Fuck them. This is our opening salvo, our November Offensive. It is a statement of intent and it is just the beginning.

The riots this August proved that if enough people can be mobilised under an ideal then they cannot be stopped. Whether the reasons for the violence and rage felt in our capital and throughout this country were righteous or not is irrelevant, it’s the motivational message that matters. It’s a message that resonated deep within us and it’s the message that has inspired us. We have always striven to be a band that stood for something, to be a band where the word dissonance wasn’t just used as a description of our sound, to be a band that were never afraid to say what we really felt and to never compromise or sell out our integrity. Now more than ever we feel capable of living up to what we always hoped we could be. We’re tighter, leaner and more focused than we have ever been. We have two new family members who share our anger at the present and our hopefulness and optimism for the future. We are reverting back to the DIY ideals that built this band and are taking control of our own destiny.

Just as the plot of 1605 has resonated forever through history so too will this tour resonate forever through our history. It will be remembered as the time we stood up and spoke out against the injustices that we live through in this country every day, against the prejudices of our government and the grinning, flaccid cunt in charge, against the cuts to our public sector which have forced unemployment up to its highest level in 15 years, against the bible bashers and crazed anti-abortionists who want to take away the right of choice from the women of this country, against the openly racist and xenophobic beliefs of organisations like the EDL and the BNP and against the dumbing down and commoditization of art. We have a voice and we intend to use it and we urge you to do the same. Once more into the breach dear friends…
