We’re delighted to be helping The Happy Soul launch their new album!

With influences as diverse and weird as Frank Zappa, Jake Thackray, Mahalia Jackson, Scott Walker, Nilsson and The Beach Boys, The Happy Soul are a hard band to pigeonhole. Part power-pop, part gospel, part Spector, they have been busy working on their new album, Big Wow, and will release it this Summer.

They will be performing their new LP in its entirety at this very special show, which will kick off a brief tour of the North of England.

Their debut album A White Dot On A Black Triangle is available at thehappysoul.bandcamp.com and on Spotify.

Special guests are Michael Seal & The Be Positives. Think hi-energy, 70s power-pop. Influenced by Nick Lowe, The Beatles, and melodic Stax, they are show-stoppers in their own right.

Buy tickets now. Tickets are available from the bar (no booking fee), Vinyl Exchange, WeGotTickets.comTicketline.co.uk and on 0871 220 0260.

All shows are 18+ unless otherwise stated.
