Is that how you spell it? Club Smith are playing some festivals starting next week. AW SWEET! Here they are:
Live at Leeds – Saturday 30th April
This is a festival across the city of Leeds. It’s AWESOME. We play the Faversham at 6pm. Plus two days later there is a Live at Leeds 5 a side tournament which sounds epic. We’re in a team made up of The Faversham promoters and a band called the Officers and All Sorted Records. Nice. We’ll lose. But the gig will be amazing!
Tickets £17.50 from www.liveatleeds.com
Liverpool Sound City – Friday 20th May
Alright Alright calm down. We’re only playing Liverpool’s own city festival. We’re playing The Masque Ink on the Friday. Apparently Peter Hook is a key note speaker for this festival’s conference thing. I once met Peter Hook at a songwriters thing for the BBC. I asked him what his favourite song he’d been involved in writing was, and he said he didn’t know, and I suggested World in Motion, and he didn’t like that. We ended on great terms though, he liked my music.

Play Fest – Saturday 28th May – Norwich
Well our Norwich gig with the Pigeon Detectives was fairly insane so hoping this is just as good. It’s a new festival in Norwich featuring Futureheads, Frank Turner, Darwin Deez, Little Comets and more. We’re on the main stage at 2pm.

Keighley Rock and Rail – Sunday 12th June
We are pretty excited about this gig. It’s a festival set across a railway route…the vintage one in Haworth. So you can come and have new age fun with a vintage feel! Oh yes. We’re actually playing on a train…a moving train. A moving train, with us playing on it. I have no idea how it will work but it sounds ridiculous and perfect.

Kendal Calling – Friday 29th July
Don’t need to say a lot about this apart from…we’re playing the same day as House of Pain. That’s all I need to say. How awesome. We’re playing the Calling out stage, late afternoon time, oh and it won small festival of the year last year. I kept on saying stuff didn’t I. Still typing now in fact.
