The Brickyard in Carlisle, United Kingdom
Sunderland's returning indie favourites The Futureheads head to The Brickyard for a special show.
Blasting in to the public consciousness in the early 2000s as part of an angular art-punk movement that included the likes of Franz Ferdinand and Bloc Party, The Futureheads' blend of spiky guitar riffs, unconventional song structures and intricate four-part vocal harmonies soon set them apart from their contemporaries. Their rousing cover of Kate Bush's 'Hounds Of Love' shot in to the UK top ten, alongside glowing reviews for their self-titled debut LP.
Four more albums followed, including the entirely a cappella 'Rant' in 2012, before the band went on an extensive hiatus – returning triumphantly with 2019's 'Powers'.
Formerly known as The Richmond Hall, or The Richmond Memorial Hall, the venue itself is over 100 years old and has been a key figure in the Carlisle music scene for many years. The Richmond Hall was built as Saint Mary's Parish Rooms, named in honour of the late Canon Thomas Richmond of Canon Carlisle Cathedral.
After a long absence, The Richmond Hall was renovated and its doors opened on new year's eve 2002 to the new name of The Brickyard. Ideally situated between Newcastle and Glasgow, The Brickyard is a 320 capacity venue.
The Brickyard is Carlisle's premier and only full-time live music venue.
The venue has been running for over 10 years now with a capacity of 320, catering to ages 14 and over.
