In their final show of the year RKoS return to their spiritual home for their first appearance at the new Wolf’s venue and for the final date in their autumn mini-tour.
A second visit to Wales following last month’s excursion to Cardiff. This time into the valleys and Nick Byrne’s cool club that brings live music to the important areas outside the urban centres and to communities that treasure live music and are not always served.
Another first in our mini-tour as we cross border and bridge to make our first appearance ever in Wales. Again we team up with Cherry Valentine Promotions and Bierkeller group to play these lively venues with the emphasis on beer and dancing, but not, definitely not, on the tables. Also appearing Weekend Arrows, The Kinky Wizards, and Old Samuel
Our second trip to a Bierkeller venue within a week and after The Brewhouse in Warrington we start to see a ‘beer’ related theme to our venues on this tour. This time it is our first Manchester gig and with such a rich history of quality live and recorded music a place we have been keen to play. So yet another ambition fulfilled. This is also the last part of our mini-tour which resumes in Cardiff towards the end of November with erm .. yes another Bierkeller!
Another trip to the capital however a very different experience from the usual clubs and bars on the rest of the tour as this renowned and long established venue (running since 1985) primarily hosts jazz and we are part of their branch into other genres. So no pressure then! Multiple sets from 9pm. During the day the venue is an art gallery showcasing the work of Sam Shaker, so very much on our type of venue as we’re just a little bit arty ourselves in intent and we hope in execution. Following in the steps of artists such as Amy Winehouse is a privilege and a responsibility. Let’s hope we don’t need rehab afterwards …

“Upon first hearing 'The Future of Mass Hysteria' by The Real King(s) of Spain, I thought, "Fuck yeah ... this is somethin' I've been wanting to hear but haven't since Massive Attack or Gorillaz" Seein' them I was reminded of the Pixies; "looking extra ordinary making extraordinary music." A great band, a great album, a great live experience. Proper. zaiLong”
