GREENDATE

””
Kitchen Sink Presents/// ... THE OFFICIAL TRIBUTE TO GREENDAY.

The Tribute Band

The formation of Green Date pre-dates the world shaking arrival of the album “American Idiot” and the never-to-be-forgotten “Bullet In A Bible” tour. In that time Green Date has grown from strength to strength, performing their own mammoth gigs up to two and half hours in length. Based in Nottinghamshire, GreenDate are one of the finest tribute bands, displaying their talents to fans across the four corners of the British Isles and further afield into mainland Europe. Now well established in the nation’s punk circle the members of GreenDate are all gifted musicians in their own right. However, the passion and creative edge that comes across in their live shows derives from their collective love of the band they so closely emulate, Green Day.

Green Day Music

Green Date perform from Green Day’s extensive back catalogue from their first EP “1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours” through "Kerplunk", "Dookie", "Insomniac", "Nimrod", "Warning", the multi platinum “American Idiot”, right up to the latest No1 selling album "21st Century Break Down". Including classics such as Basket Case, When I Come Around, Good Riddance, Brainstew, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Wake Me Up When September Ends and many, many more.

The Smiths Ltd.

Saturday 26th October

””
THE SMITHS LTD The Smiths Ltd was formed in February 2009 by Smiths obsessed Alex Gaskell (guitar), Andy Crook (Bass) and Keith Partington (drums). They realised that we needed a superb front man and started an extensive 4-month search to find the perfect Morrissey. After a piece in the Manchester Evening News and a Channel M and Rock Radio interview, Johnny Turner heard our plea and came to audition. As obsessive as we were about getting the sound right and bearing an uncanny vocal and physical resemblance to Morrissey, Johnny completed The Smiths Ltd line-up in June 2009. After 5 months of rehearsals we played our first gig in October 2009 to a rapturous audience and we haven’t looked back since.

Being the ONLY Smiths tribute band from and based in Manchester, UK we also have a unique selling point and an authenticity that is hard to beat. The band also uses the same guitars, bass, amps and drum kit live that the Smiths used on their very last tour.

It’s unlikely that the Smiths will ever play live again and certainly not with the passion and energy of that brief period between 1983 and 1987. The Smiths Ltd are the closest you will get to experiencing that live charge of Morrissey, Marr and Co on stage

CARL BARAT DJ SET - THE LIBERTINES

FRIDAY 8TH NOVEMBER

SHINE LIKE STARS PRESENTS

CARL BARAT DJ SET - THE LIBERTINES

Quite simply, The Libertines defined the sound, and the look, of indie over the last decade. Their seminal “Up The Bracket” album still sounds as fresh, and as important, today as it did on its release. It is still a huge influence on today’s biggest albums - no wonder NME ranked UTB as the 3rd best debut album ever and in top 10 best albums of NME’s long lifespan, Up The Bracket represented twenty first century Rock and Roll in all its glory. Currently in hiatus since their triumphant Reading / Leeds shows a couple of years ago, but with stories leaking every month that they are reforming, Libertines really are UK indie royalty.

ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? THE NO 1 TRIBUTE TO JIMI HENDRIX

Saturday 9th November

ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? THE NO 1 TRIBUTE TO JIMI HENDRIX

AS SEEN ON BBC TV

ARE YOU EXPERIENCED?’ were formed over fourteen years ago and in that time they have become widely regarded as just about the best JIMI HENDRIX tribute show you will see.

Guitarist John Campbell bears more than just a passing resemblance and has drawn on his many years of playing in different bands and various styles to perfect his ‘Hendrix’ persona. When he plays his strat behind his head and with his teeth, it brings a smile to the face of even the most finicky Hendrix fan.

The band are proud to be playing the timeless music of JIMI HENDRIX, providing some nostalgic moments for those lucky people who actually witnessed Jimi in the flesh and recreating some of the magic for a new and eager audience.

Catch ‘ARE YOU EXPERIENCED?’ when they come to KU and relive the excitement and explosive stage show of the JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE. Let the band take you through all the favourites like ‘Hey Joe’, ‘Voodoo Chile’, ‘All Along The Watchtower’, ‘Foxy Lady’ and ‘Little Wing’, culminating in the guitar-burning finale of Wild Thing.

‘The Legend Lives On………..’

FRIDAY 22ND NOVEMBER

SHINE:LIKE:STARS, LIVE BANDS, INDIE, ROCKnROLL and SOME OF THE OTHER Since 2003

DARK HORSES ‘WE ARE THE PEOPLE WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR’ ‘What’s different about DARK HORSES is that whilst they tick all boxes you’d want from your favourite new pop group: gamine and gang like, androgynous sexuality, druggy guitars and some good ol’ Situationist posturing, they fortunately beyond all the swagger are rather talented and have committed a deeply emotional and original ‘sonic soul’ record. They think they’re The Clash but really they may become a new Radiohead. Look out.’ -Pierre Angelique Touring buddy's include Tame Impala, Beck, Sigur Ros, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Black Angels and Kasabian, their song 'Radio' was voted ArtRocker's single of the year and was also A-Play listed on BBC 6 Music. 'Their Richard Fearless (Death in Vegas) produced debut album ‘BLACK MUSIC’ out on U.S/Canadian label LAST GANG RECORDS ( home of amongst others Crystal Castles and Death From Above 1979 ) is a record from the hearts and minds of people who believe that music must be more than background noise, that it must matter.' - Hamish Macbain, NME www.darkhorsesmusic.com
