Dead Eyes Opened
Carpe Noctum #100: a piss-up in a (micro-)brewery!
RHOMBUS surely need no introduction. Mixing male and female vocals with swirling guitars, driving bass and electric violin, they combine some of the best elements of traditional 80s/90s UK Goth, with their own modern, upbeat approach. In addition to their studio indulgences, they’ve cultivated an exceptional reputation for their live performance, winning over audiences and powering the party, whether it be in an intimate club venue or from a festival stage. Their new album, “Here Be Dragons”, is available now. Rhombus will be on stage around 9:50pm. http://www.rhombus.org.uk/
DEAD EYES OPENED: a mash-up of latter-day Depeche Mode, a noisier Sisters, Dreamtime-era Cult, and a bit of Killing Joke. With some raucous guitars. And a pop song sensibility; the song is king, after all. Dead Eyes Opened will be on stage around 8:45pm www.facebook.com/DeadEyesOpened
Local darlings QUASIMODO perform dark guitar-based goth with a heavy emphasis on the cool and the cruel, and feature ex-members of Rome Burns and Action Directe. Quasimodo will be kicking off proceedings around 8pm. http://www.facebook.com/quasimodoleeds
THE FOX & NEWT is a traditional cosy pub, a comfortable walk from the station, with a micro brewery, live music venue and food service from 12pm till 8pm, making it a safe place to hide from the world outside. We’ll be upstairs – when we’re not at the bar getting in some more lovely ales. http://www.burleystreetbrewhouse.co.uk/?page_id=44
Due to the three bands, relaxed Friday evening start, and midnight curfew, there’ll be no club night for this one, but CARPE NOCTUM will be back in its full glory next time.
Doors 7:30pm, bands 8-11. £4 otd.
