Ladies and gentlemen… the unofficial Thought Bubble party….

Published On October 30, 2014 | By Richard Bruton | Comics, Conventions and events

Are you off to Thought Bubble this year? Free on Friday 14th November? Fancy a little comic related musical adventure the night before the convention kicks off?

Well, how about this….


The Gatecrass Stage: Unofficial Pre-Thought Bubble Party/Open Mic feat. Vince Paradise & The Kittelbach Pirates“.

Basically a group of talented so and sos are pitching up at a spare Leeds retail space to transform it into a glorious den of iniquity for the night. Here’s the gist of the night from their Facebook page….

Supported by Assembly House Studios and East Street Arts, we invite you to join us for an evening of music, performance and art to warm everyone up for the madness of the Thought Bubble Sequential Art Festivalweekend.

The event is free and open to all who wish to attend. Alcohol will be available, but you are more than welcome to bring your own.

Feel free to step back and enjoy the show, or even jump on the stage and show us what you’ve got. For those who wish to perform we can provide access to a guitar amp and PA system.

We’ll also have a live art wall set up, where comic book creators and members of the public can get loose and sketch up whatever they wish side by side.


Performances Include:

Raygun Roads & The Kittelbach Pirates – Vince Paradise’s wild live act from the British Comic Awards Nominated Raygun Roads

Jack Fallows of Skull Puppies – acoustic punk rock magic

Lissie’s Heart Murmur – Local Leeds legend

And more to be announced…


Plus a whole host of artists exhibiting at the Thought Bubble Festival drawing over the night, including:
Owen Michael Johnson
Mark Penman
Jack Fallows
Caspar Wijngaard
Conor Boyle
John Pearson
+ More TBA

PLUS local Leeds artists Jaypee, Tommings, Bobbi Abbey, Mike Winnard and more!

There will also be opportunities throughout the night for those who wish to perform to do so, so bring your instruments, bring your voices, bring your dancing shoes and bring your pens….and we’ll have a crazy art fuelled night.

Feel free to join in the Facebook fun here.
