If last year is anything to go by, All Years Leaving’s return to the prodigious Hare & Hounds will be an unmissable two day bonanza of hectic, inspiring and riotous damn good musico times. More than just a bop and mosh about, this event has the reputation of bringing the newest, most authentic new acts to the fore. Anyone who was lucky enough to catch Yuck’s stand-out performance last year will most certainly not be shirking this event. Expanding into a pseudo-festival experience all under one roof with all of the camaraderie and none of the portaloos, there will be art installations, street food, DJ’s and after show parties.
The Friday will be an unruly, invigorating night of enjoyable disorder; seeing punk act Eagulls return to one of their favourite venues, as well as grunge revival band Cheatahs and two piece God Damn take the stage. Vocal chord's nicely raw and feet satisfyingly bruised from all the leaping about, the Saturday will allow no time for relaxation but it may let up on the rowdiness just a tad.
With psychedelic pop by Theo Verney, 70s pop by The Voyeurs and sonic pop by Echo Lake, this night will have more than a dash of pop with heaps of rock and punk thrown in. All Years Leaving festival are saving one tantalising treat to the very last minute; unveiling a secret act on the last night. Music lovers, a night of discovery and debauchery is waiting to be had.
All Year's Leaving festival takes place on October 24th & 25th at The Hare and Hounds
