Saturday 11th July
The Shed is where they started; The Shed is where they finished.
In between they played some of the top shows in Leicester, performed in London, Birmingham and Glastonbury…
Friday 10th July
We were at The Soundhouse to see The Lids and The Mini Nukes. Disappointed to have missed a set by Luke Walker (one-time member of The Chairmen.) The Lids were three teenagers and their lead vocalist had a strong voice into which he applied plenty of character. The best thing about The Mini Nukes is that all three of them sing. Good musical entertainment delivered with lashings of passion. Songs that have oodles of drive and relentless energy. Their set was delivered with infectious good humour and a limitless supply of infectious rhythms.
Saturday 4th July
Western Park Festival
That night we were at The Shed for the Oxjam Skabecue. Many excellent acts but to mention just some: Grace (from Grace and the Magic Roots) Ujahm and Goldstien were particuarly good
and also tonight Joe Doyle’s album launch held at The Soundhouse. Joe sang a song by Gorillas – Clint Eastwood lyrics – tat includes the line about having sunshine in a bag. Very good but little more than was remembered. Several notable names from the Leicester music scene were in the audience.

Thank you to everyone who came out to The Cookie last night! It was an absolute blast, can’t wait for the next one! Michael Kurtz Music and Mia and the Moon were amazing and did an amazing job of setting the bar so high!
