Hope and Social return to their spiritual home in Leeds, The Brudenell Social Club for what promises to be another night of lunacy and noisy noisy fun and some sitting down cos they're getting really old and tired. This time they are joined by Manchesters finest, Louis Barrabas and the Bedlam Six to create The Bedlam Scial Club.
The two bands recently came together as part of Hope Social's Crypt Covers project to of Simon & Garfunkel’s Keep The Customer Satisfied – a project that the ensemble found so enjoyable they resolved to get together for a special double-headliner event entitled The Bedlam Social Club. As well as their own material, the two groups will combine forces on the night into one formidable super animal capable of city crushing dance moves. Do not miss this unique event! It's gonna blow your moustache right out the back of your ass.
When & Where
Hope and Social
Hope and Social are a band who do things a little bit differently. We're an independent band hailing from Leeds and some of the best things we've ever done have been to do with involving people in the events we run. Soooooo....
.... we've had 70 people Come Dine With Us at our studio...
... we've taken 80 people to the seaside on an open top double decker the Hope and Social Fun Bus...
... and we've done countless shows up and down the country... including Glastonbury.
We also wear Blue jackets.
That's all very good but are Hope and Social actually any good?
Well far be it for me to say...
“Brilliant, uplifting and inclusive. That was amazing, here’s your cheque” - Michael Eavis, Glastonbury Festival
"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
“smash-your-head-into-the-wall brilliant” - Entertainment Weekly
“one of the UK’s top five live bands” - The Independent
“I’ve heard the name vaguely” - Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
Loved by our fans, and converting people gig by gig… the most honest thing to say is that we try our best!
