He has produced for the liked of Elvis Costello and The Damned, turned out countless hit albums, and now Nick Lowe is bringing his ‘Quality Rock and Roll Revue’ to Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC).

Nick Lowe’s PAC show, on Tuesday 25 June at 8pm, comes just days before he is set to headline the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury Festival, giving the audience a unique chance to experience this live show within the intimate surroundings of PAC’s 200-seat auditorium.

Lowe will be accompanied by Los Straitjackets, an American instrumental rock group renowned for their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks.

PAC director Janet Farmer said: “We are really excited to welcome Nick Lowe and Los Straitjackets to PAC in just a few weeks’ time. He is such a high calibre of musician and is so highly regarded in the British power-pop and new wave circles. To have the chance to see him perform live within the intimate setting of our auditorium just days before headlining at Glastonbury is an incredible opportunity for any music fan.”

As a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, Nick Lowe has no equal. Starting with 1995’s The Impossible Bird through to 2011’s The Old Magic, Lowe has turned out a fantastic string of albums, each one devised in his West London home, and recorded with a core of musicians who possess the same veteran savvy.

Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live show as “elegant and nearly devastating”.

Lowe’s new four-song EP “Tokyo Bay” features Los Straitjackets as his backing band. The Straitjackets’ most recent album What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace Love & Los Straitjackets features instrumental covers of Nick Lowe Songs.

Nick Lowe’s Quality Rock and Roll Revue starring Los Straitjackets comes to PAC on 25 June, 8pm
Tickets are £35 each, available now at pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01759 301547
