Ticket: £5.00 Buy Now
Doors: 7pm
Age: 14

Hard to believe that an idea for late 2001 by Dan Lucas aka Boss Caine would rumble on through the years, all the while gathering money for folks less fortunate than the rest of us. In the early days, our hero and chums would make a heap of the winnings and head to the nearest friendly grocer for cans of comestibles to distribute at a time when people are most in need.

And it is still thus, your attendance and a crisp rubbery fiver are the only requests from tonight’s minstrels, all giving their time and taxi money to give us humble sinners a ‘good time’. And all for the benefit of YORK MIND!!

You don’t need me to tell you about BOSS CAINE, suffice to say that our King Of Coffin Country will one day conquer the world, if not the planet’s gin warehouses, with his own inimitable grave and gravel delivery.

Running order has not been decided but the principal contenders are as follows:

THE HOWL AND THE HUM, led by the stellar songwriting and sublime delivery talents of Sam Griffiths. Taking Sam’s classic songwriting and raising it to future festival headliner rock and roll levels are scene stalwarts Bradley Blackwell with Bradley Blackwell, Conor Hirons & Laurie Caldwell in attendance.

NAKED SIX always make a bit of a fuss when playing at Fibbs – we can’t believe just how damn good they are. Pop along and experience that feeling of socks being removed by a strong and unexpected wind. We love them.

And how about this, reappearing at Fibbers one of the best York bands to disturb the peace; indeed several years ago we were one of the first to say, “If BULL had been around in 2006, they’d already have a tour bus and a million quid record company advance – such is the strength of their songs”. This still holds true, as many of you can attest.

In between all the noisy guitars, we are promised DJs. Not the usual laptop drum and bass on loop nonsense but proper tunes that musicians wrote, not computers and calculators.

All in all it promises to be a bit old school, y’know when TONS of people went to live gigs and had a fine time all round.

Tickets available online, from the venue, from the artists, from the milkman and probably from Jeremy Corbyn because we all know Dan Lucas can get where water can’t. And to quote the man, “See you at the bar!”.
