The Burning Hell + Bored Housewife + Stephen Scott
Mon 12 June 2017, 19:00 – 23:00 BST
Where to start with this band? The Burning Hell is more than the songwriting project of Mathias Kom. Particularly known for their literate—often literary—and humorous lyrics, they have drawn comparisons to They Might Be Giants, Belle and Sebastian, Jonathan Richman, and Ween. Probably first heard widely in this country via Marc Riley on 6Music, they have toured extensively across the UK, and have now released 9 albums. The tenth will be recorded by the time they tour here in June. For this tour it will not be the full band, but neither will it be the Mathias and Ariel duo that toured previously. This time it is Mathias on guitar and vocals, Ariel on bass clarinet and vocals and Darren on bouzouki and vocals, so something more intimate and acoustic which should allow the words to shine that little bit harder. They have never before played Sheffield and this is the only gig of four between London and the true north (Durham and Glasgow), so get your skates and book now before this intimate venue (150 capacity) sells out. Support comes from the brilliant solo version of Bored Housewife who seems to only plays love songs, as only he can (this is strictly NSFW we're telling you now) and also Stephen Scott, whose readings will be equally as entertaining and literary and scurrilous as the other two acts. This is the most modestly priced date of the whole tour. Three acts for the price of a pint in London? We should coco.
Tickets (£7.50 or more on the door) will also be available from the venue from the end of March.
Record Junkee is round the corner from Music Junkee and part of the same building/organisation
And, yes, there is a bar
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
14 and over, but we really don't recommend this unless you a truly stuck for a babysitter
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is limited parking on Earl St but there are plenty of buses running along Arundel Gate, you tight arse. The train station is not that far either
What can I bring into the event?
Positivity, an open mind, and a song in your heart. Failing that, a bulging wallet so you can buy all the merch. No booze please
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavour to reply ASAFP
