God Is My Co-Pilot (USA)/ Regretta Garbo / Fistymuffs
DOORS 7:30pm // £7 ADV Tickets here or £8 OTD
Trailblazing NYC Queer/No Wave/Free Punk outfit God Is My Co-Pilot return to action after 20 years and they're headed to Leith!
A prolific and disorienting force throughout the 90s, GodCo challenged, if not entirely dissolved boundaries of all forms - from conventional musical structure and language to sexuality and gender. Often done with a knowing wit, but with serious power and spirit, the band's music is incomparable to any description of it, and remains a sight/sound to behold firsthand, in order to be truly understood. As such, it's an honour to welcome them to Leith Depot for the first time and we sincerely hope you'll come join the parade!

. Jay has been performing comedy since 2005 working all over the UK as well as in Los Angeles and Toronto.

The girl next door persona allows her to get away with the darker jokes that punctuate her material.
With comedy described as chocolate covered hand grenades, don’t be mistaken this girl can melt butter - sometimes by using a flamethrower. Clever material delivered with effortless charm and packing a bite every bit as bad as its bark. An experienced writer and performer Jay has worked on a number of hit BBC Scotland and BBC Four radio shows and is a regular guest on Radio Scotland's Breaking The News. Jay also secured a part on Season 2 of The Comedy Unit’s hit BBC1 show Scot Squad.
