Novel Writers: David Keenan
The place is Airdrie. The year is 1983. Memorial Device, the best band that never existed, are about to change everyones lives forever. This Is Memorial Device is a love letter to the small towns of Lanarkshire in the west of Scotland in the late 1970s and early 80s as they were temporarily transformed by the endless possibilities that came out of the freefall from punk rock. Novel Writers Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books. In partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.

Charlotte Esposito Launch Night & Exhibition - Junkyard Dogs
We are delighted to be announcing a month long solo show from local artist Charlotte Esposito. She launches with an open house \'Private view\' on April 1st and the exhibition will run til 4th May. Esposito is a contemporary British Artist from Brighton. Her works are modern and evocative; sometimes paintings, other times fashion, often sculpture and occasionally wall art. She paints, sculpts and manipulates the surface of her canvasses using not only brushes but screws, credit cards and other interesting implements. Her paintings cleverly unite traditional media with the unexpected by combining oils, acrylics and inks with materials such as alcohol, feather, thread, flowers, spray paint, gauze, collage and coffee. The work is unique and wide ranging and touches upon themes such as human connection, identity, femininity, the natural world, health, politics, spirituality, and the urban environment. In 2012 she became a full time artist and was taken on by London gallery Debut Contemporary. Since that time her work has featured in numerous publications including \'The Grove Resident\', \'Stylist\', and ART HABENS Magazine. She has exhibited widely and has had solo showcase\'s at the \'Kleinwort Benson\' HQ\'s and the \'Saatchi and Saatchi\' private pub in London. Her work has sold in to public and private collections both online and via galleries, including sales via Saatchi ART. She has most recently been represented by Le Dame Art Gallery, London and she continues to work to private commission.

Patent Pending - Thekla - 17.04.17
PATENT PENDING www.patentpendingmusic.com Patent Pending is an acrobatic gang of musical misfits from Long Island, New York. With a never-say-die attitude and enough live energy to power Times Square, they\'ve set their sites on taking over the music industry from the ground up. Growing in size from basements to amphitheaters, from VFW Halls to sold out headlining shows in the United Kingdom, they\'ve never let go of the genuine DIY code of ethics the band was founded on over a decade ago. The live show, which has been described as "psychotically fun and dramatically moving," is an inspiring testament to the passion the band pours into every aspect of their lives. With an ever growing army of "lifers" behind them (better known as - "The Second Family") Patent Pending returns to battle with their album, "Brighter." Pulling from all corners of the musical spectrum, the collection of tunes is a fearless and eclectic blend of genre-bending, arena ready anthems. Hard work and dedication have yielded some incredible results for Patent Pending. They\'ve enjoyed the success of three music videos reaching the coveted #1 spot on MTV.com, with state side rotation on MTV, MTV2, MTVu, Fuse on Demand and Scuzz TV in the United Kingdom. In 2012 PP\'s warrior like determination won them the Billboard Music Awards "Dream Seeker Of The Year" trophy and afforded them the honor of delivering a ground-shaking performance of their song "Dance Til We Die" in front of a National Television audience of over 8 MILLION home viewers. Later that year, opportunity came knocking again in a big way when pop-rock legends "Bowling For Soup" gave the band an opening spot on their massive UK Tour. That first trip to Europe proved to be a life changer for the New York natives. It leads the band to return for multiple headlining tours and earned them a spot on Donnington Park\'s historic DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL with the likes of Slipknot and Iron Maiden. Equipped with an innovative and hilarious new single/mockumentary film for the their song "Hey Mario" and their ever-expanding tour schedule including the United States, United Kingdom, Germany and Australia in the coming months, this looks to be another landmark year for these Long Island misfits. Patent Pending shows no signs of slowing down and even less of forgetting where they came from. A quote from a recent interview with front man, Joe Ragosta can best explain - "The music makes us a band, the connection with the people who listen to that music makes us a family, and family is stronger than anything."
