Stealing Sheep Myth Portrait

Acclaimed Liverpudlian trio Stealing Sheep make their Bongo Club debut on Friday 29th May, as part of our Bongo Lives! x Hidden Door Festival, also in association with vaunted Edinburgh gig-in-a-club promoters Limbo.

This trio, signed to respected UK label Heavenly Recordings (behind classic indie-pop band St Etienne, among many others), have just released second album Not Real to a raft of rave reviews, with Mojo calling them ‘truly, a class act’, Magnet magazine in the US heralding their ‘weird pop album’ as ‘a bold step in to a bigger world’ and Lauren Laverne having them in for a session on her 6music show just a fortnight ago.  To say we’re excited about having them play at The Bongo Club is something of an understatement.  In short, it should be  one of the gigs of the year.  Check out the two videos below for an idea of what to expect.

It’s also the first time we’ve collaborated with local festival Hidden Door, a gargantuan, nine-day-long event, run entirely by volunteers: artists, students and others who have generously given up their time to make something truly unique happen here in Edinburgh, without any public funding at all.  The energy, enthusiasm and uninhibited generosity of spirit that has gone into putting on the Hidden Door is absolutely second-to-none.  Long may it continue!

The support acts for this gig are Edinburgh stars Blank Canvas and new Glasgow band ULTRAS.

This event complements Limbo’s other two stages at Hidden Door’s Secret Courtyard (King’s Stables Road) with Woodenbox, King Eider, Lo Bird, Pumajaw and Hailey Beavis.
