Packing up

The Leeds Music History Exhibition is now officially closed. We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone that made the exhibition happen, and we will be packing up this week so if you loaned us your stuff to exhibit then we will be in touch about getting it back to you.

Last day of the exhibition!

Today (Saturday August 27th 2011) is the last day of the Where Were You? Leeds Music History Exhibition – we’ve had over 1000 people visit the exhibition, we’re really pleased that so many people are passionate about music in Leeds. We will continue to do stuff so keep an eye on our website and Facebook page (The Leeds Music History Society) – coming up are gigs from Pink Peg Slax and Jake Thackray Syndrome, and a compilation of Leeds music.

 

John F Keenan

Legendary music promoter John F Keenan will be giving a talk tomorrow, Tuesday 23rd August at 1pm in the Leeds Town Hall Crypt. We like to think of John as the Godfather of the Leeds music scene, he has been promoting in Leeds since 1977 including ‘F’ Club, Futurama Festivals, The Duchess, and currently at the New Roscoe.

BBC Online

Thanks to our delightful friends we are once again featured on the BBC, this time on BBC online with a gallery featuring photos from Mark Jaffe. It will give you a taste for what to expect from the exhibition, and shows some of our highlights. Enjoy!

If you’re a Twit…

OK, so we’re only just getting to know all this social media malarkey, but we do now have a hash tag #leedsmusichistory. So if you’re a Twit, like Tweeting, and are on Twitter, then please hash tag us or however it goes…. our leading lady is on there – katiejanehill – find her and follow her….

Thanks to Wrath Records

Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to Steve Morricone at Wrath Records for bringing down a pile of 7″ records, CDs and posters to donate to the exhibition yesterday. We will be displaying them, and then will auction them to raise funds for the project.

Wrath Records is a Leeds based label bent on purveying quality leftfield alternative popular music, and is home to the likes of The Eureka Machines, Scaramanga Six and Amoeba to Zebra. And we love them, so thank you, please buy their records.
