DOWNDIME + VIVA STEREO + PLANS & APOLOGIES

Carpe Diem
Great George Street
Leeds

Admission FREE includes drinks offers and DJ all night. Bar open until late


DOWNDIME
'Complex sounding song constructions, energetic, twitchy performance, sensitive lyrics and an aloof looking female keyboardist...Downdime offered the swelling student crowd a blistering lesson in self-belief and showmanship.' - Leeds Music Scene

VIVA STEREO
'Viva Stereo are what we’ve all been waiting for, with an album ‘Optimism is not a curse’ that went widely and ashamedly unnoticed by critics the “electro… guitar… noise… beat… confusion” ensemble gather to prove their worth. And frankly WE are not worthy. Like a foetal Primal scream suspended in the acid bile of Death in Vegas, they truly could be the new spawn to break the shackles of indie tedium.' - Gigwise.com

PLANS AND APOLOGIES
'The general appeal of Plans & Apologies is the fact they sound like six blokes fighting to be heard amongst each other, pulling in different, unpredictable directions yet managing to keep it all together in the end. Far too good to remain in indie obscurity.' - Drowned in Sound
