LIVE FROM FUTURE YARD
Unfortunately, the current COVID-19 restrictions in Merseyside mean that we can’t welcome audience to Future Yard for live shows. Until we can do that safely, we’ll be brining you some very special live streamed performances from the building, to whet your appetite until you can join us again.
Seatbelts, Eyesore & The Jinx and By The Sea were all scheduled to perform socially-distanced NEAR NORMAL shows at Future Yard in October. In place of these three original limited-capacity shows, we’ve rearranged them as live streamed headline performances, which will be broadcast on YouTube on a high-quality stream, and completely free to access. This is your chance to sample a small amount of the thrill of a live show, and also take a look inside Future Yard before you hopefully come to enjoy a full show here when we’re fully open.
Live From Future Yard | 30th October 2020
Bringing their artful pop across the river, Seatbelts are James Madden, Ryan Murphy, Abigail Woods and Alex Quinn. The quartet have a moreish blend of classic melodies and eccentric twists that nods to Postcard Records. Their latest release, the EP Edwyn, is a tribute to Edwyn Collins, whom they recorded with at Collins’ Highlands studio.
Eyesore & The Jinx
Live From Future Yard | 6th November 2020
Post-punk-inflected breakout trio Eyesore & The Jinx are part of an exciting crop of Merseyside acts that have coalesced around the Eggy Records label, and are one of our favourite acts around right now. Previous Eyesore releases – Leisure Time, produced by Daniel Fox (Girl Band) alongside Matthew Freeman at Fresh Goods Studio, and On An Island, produced by Jonathan Hartley from iconic psych surgeons Clinic – have centred around themes of isolationist politics, right-wing media and a series of abhorrent characters. A new release, The Exile Parlour EP, collates some of these initial outbursts (Leisure Time plus crowd favourite Nightlife, and two new tracks): it will become a mainstay of your record collection once you’ve been bitten by the Eyesore bug.
By The Sea
Live From Future Yard | 20th November 2020
By The Sea have been away for what seems like an age, but when you hear the strains of the gorgeous dream pop of new single The Let Downs, it’s like they’ve never been away. Led by guitarist Liam Power, By The Sea are a deliciously deft group reared on the rarefied air of West Wirral. They’ve crystallised their sparkling, Bunnymen-meets-Cocteaus sonics into two quiet gems so far (By The Sea and Endless Days, Crystal Sky), and now they’re back, with a new LP – Heaven Knows Magnolia – in the offing.
All performances start at 7.30pm. Click on the ‘reminder’ YouTube link to access the stream when it goes live. And sign up to our mailing list to make sure that you don’t miss out on any future announcements on live streamed and in-venue performances.
