Flaming marvellous: Burnt Ones
This Friday (September 12), a lively chapter in York’s music scene comes to an end. The Woolpack will host its last evening in its current incarnation as a live music venue.

It is set to go out with all guns blazing with a night hosted by record label and music promoters Bad Paintings, with Burnt Ones topping the bill.

These psychedelic garage rockers have travelled all the way from San Francisco to be at the Woolpack wake.

They are supported by two favourite York bands: three-piece rockers The Franceens and Bull, serving up Nineties American indie.

“Friends and I have been putting on shows for the last year or so at the Woolpack, and Friday is going to be the last ever show before it closes its doors as a live music venue,” says Mike Harrison of Bad Paintings.

“Please come down and celebrate it’s short but brilliant existence. There will be hot dogs and great music.”

The Fawcett Street pub had become a hub for artists of all genres and their fans but as we reported in June the owners found it was not financially sustainable.

After Friday the Woolpack will close for a refit, reopening with the “focus on being a local pub with a great selection of local real ales at competitive prices” according to the new man at the helm, Steve Bradley.
