KITS + Shake Your Halo Down

Also at this Venue


Live original music in Wakefield on the first Thursday of every month. Doors open at 8pm.

9.15pm KITS
Kit - noun - a small fur-bearing animal. KITS is the one-person techno-folk project of Jayson Turner, a Computer Scientist currently living in Glasgow via Manchester and Walney Island. KITS combines vocals, synths, and various bleepy boxes to create simple and meaningful songs ranging from the ecstatically positive to the devastatingly bleak. Fundamentally it’s like LCD Soundsystem, but you can’t dance to it.

This gig will launch their first single, recorded at Greenmount Studios, and will be released on Philophobia Music.
