A former working man's club in the heart of York, recently saved from redevelopment, and being run as a community focused venue, with a full programme of live music and club events in its 250 capacity back room.
The venue's old school charm has been extended with the addition of a Turbosound Floodlight PA System, and boasts a large original stage with seven monitor mixes as standard. The Crescent recently hosted a secret show from Scottish pop legends Texas, as well as stand alone shows from Kristin Hersh, Titus Andronicus, Lanterns On the Lake, Slow Club, Bill Ryder-Jones, Hurray For The Riff Raff, Ryley Walker, Big Thief, Honeyblood, Eagulls & Protomartyr, This Is the Kit, Rusko, Optical, DJ Hype, Nightmares On Wax and more.
Although early days for the venue, The Crescent promises to be an important fixture both regionally and nationally.
