Bodys presents Green Gardens and Rory & The Nature Kids for their latest gig at The Establishment Wakefield.

9:15pm | Green Gardens

Green Gardens are four friends who strive to bring inaccessible feelings into a shared band setting.

Drawing from the deep wells of art rock and guitar music before them, they owe everything to the earth and their surroundings. Their gentle, ponderous energy invites listeners right into the recording process with a wide-open roomy sound contrasted with thick, heavy emotion.

Sitting at the heart of Leeds’ thriving music community, the four members of Green Gardens can be found playing with Far Caspian, Sunflower Thieves, Crake, Carpet, Honey Guide, Niall Summerton and more as well as at their day jobs running shows at Leeds’ iconic Oporto venue, hosting Sofar showcases or pulling pints at the Brudenell Social Club – Green Gardens have come to embody the spirit of collaboration, creativity and sharing that Leeds DIY is famous for.

8:30pm | Rory & the Nature Kids

Rory and the Nature Kids play a kind of alternative wonky pop music which aims to pluck the heart strings of your inner child through simple, lullaby-like melodies, all the while attempting to tackle adult themes such as love, death and identity through carefully crafted lyrics and vivid metaphor.

They played for Bodys in August last year, and were so amazing we asked them to come back and headline our last show of 2022. This month they return to support their good friends Green Gardens.

Rory has been writing, recording and releasing bedroom demos for over ten years with the odd gig exposing his otherwise introverted approach.

He is joined by long term collaborator James Ridgway on drums, top legend and shredder extraordinaire Eve Creighton on lead guitar and bass player/retired dairy farmer Tristan Myatt.
