The Wardrobe Leeds
6 St Peters Square, LS9 8AH Leeds
A meteorite in his own life time, and with an apocryphal number of arrests for offences ranging from busking to blocking Dortmund Square with an alto saxophone case, Xero blazed a unique trail from Leeds to the ‘main land.’ Over the years he was accompanied by a range of musicians from the first trip as ‘Crow’ with Alan Wilkinson and Paul Hession, to Llamas in Pyjamas featuring Alphonse Material and the final line up as Xero Slingsby and the Works with Louis Colan and Gene Velocette.

All these musicians (and more) are joined for this one night of celebration by a group from Ghent —
Den Hoed who discovered Xero Slingsby some 25 years after his death and lit the blue touch paper again.

Prepare for a night of driving energy as we negotiate with a foreign power to transport the final rip-roaring band from Canada. Early bird tickets end in May with the final programme announcement.
