Picture Perfect

Local promoter Joolz Vernon has decided to take the city’s premier unsigned night Soundclash to the theatre – and, in true charitable spirit, he’ll be donating all the profit to the restoration fund to help keep the Abbeydale Picturehouse open.
On Saturday July 17, Sheffield acts Dead Like Harry, Neil Mcsweeney, Feelix and Scoundrel will take to the stage at the iconic Abbeydale Road venue for a very special one-off show to raise money for the ongoing restoration of the building which celebrates its 90th birthday this year.
Two of the acts, Neil McSweeney and Dead Like Harry, have released albums this year. The latter, a band that list classic songwriters such as Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen amongst their influences, played to a packed crowd at Glastonbury in 2009 and have just completed a UK tour. They’re currently riding high on a wave of national press interest in their album Know The Joy of Good Living. Neil, on the other hand, has recently been busy touring with a certain Richard Hawley. Should be an absolute peach of a party.
