We're delighted to welcome the very excellent Working Men’s Club (yep) to York for the first time in May when they come to support Pip Blom at this total winner of a show with our buddies Bull opening up too.
The original thinking behind Please Please You was to provide a platform for national and international touring acts to come and play in a small city so often overlooked on the national touring circuit. We have tried to encourage an open-minded, passionate and ego-free programme that would be broadly enjoyed by our friends, our soon-to-be friend and the artists alike. Over the years it's evolved and that original idea has come to fruition, we've provided many a stage for acts that would never been to play there.
Nowadays however we get our biggest kicks watching our creative friends in York develop. Whether performing on her own in sparse, singer-songwriter mode or which her highly intricate and talented band, Amy May Ellis has been a shining light in the city for some time. With a very recent BBC6 Music live session and an invite to The Great Escape Festival it would appear the rest of country is starting to notice. Her beautiful voice and melodic, folk based songs will silence rooms wherever she performs.
We're delighted to be able to host another full band show at York at The Crescent in May as Amy celebrates the release of her second EP 'We Got Fire'. It's events like this that make our world a better place.
