Nobody knows for sure what happened to Kieran Leonard in that motel in the Mojave Desert near the Joshua Tree National Park but it was Saint Leonard who returned. Transcendental experiences aside the newly canonised alt-rocker is hitting Birmingham as Saint Leonard’s Horses in October in support of new album ‘Good Luck Everybody’. Literate, satirical and almost mystical at times. Listen to the improvised politically charged mania of ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’ for a cultural teaser of the Saint’s world view. Engaging, charming and just a little weird. As he so succinctly puts it, ‘if you’re a carpenter, you don’t make chairs for other carpenters, you make them for other people to sit on.’ Expect the unexpected, expect Beck level cool and above all else expect celestial transcendence, possibly. PLEASE NOTE: This event has been rescheduled from Sun 16 Oct to Sat 4 Feb. Original tickets remain valid.

Sat 4th Feb 7.30pm at Sunflower Lounge, 76 Smallbrook Queensway, Birmingham B5 4EG £6
