Sensoria 2010

SOUTH BY WEST YORKSHIRE SHOWCASE

Sensoria is delighted to announce the Yorkshire Music showcase at 02 Academy 2. The event is in association with Plugged In Yorkshire which launches this month.

The gig is a true South by West Yorkshire showcase – the line up includes:

SERIOUS SAM BARRETT – belts out heartfelt country blues on his 12 string resonator that could be from across the Atlantic but are actually totally grounded in Yorkshire.

OBLONG – Tracy Deakins’ deceptively powerful vocals front an immersive rock guitar sound from the band that are  ‘generating more buzz than a swarm of bees’ NME.com

THE CROOKES – this fresh-faced indie group base formed at the University of Sheffield and base their lyrics on 60s kitchen sink dramas. A crowd-pleaser every time.

STANDARD FARE – named after a sign spotted on a bus, this guitar trio use girl-boy vocals to evoke lovelorn lyrics. Shared influences range from Fleetwood Mac to Rancid.

GRAMMATICS – combine cello-led grandeur with choral vocals to create art school pop with unashamed indulgence – add a dash of prog rock for good measure.

Tickets are £2 from 02 Academy, online from www.themusicweek.com and available on the door.
