WILD PALMS

+ SOVIET DISCO

+ THE KALLINGER BROTHERS

 

Friday 5th March

Doors 8pm, £3.50adv/£5door

 

‘too odd to be arrested, too good to be kept down’ is what Artrocker had to say about this rabble of London ruffians. Their daring mix of originality alongside their obvious retro gothic rock influences is what so many other similar bands try but fail to achieve. Off the back of tours with Good Shoes and the Sunshine Underground, Wild Palms release their second single, their first single was voted NME single of the week.

 

THE CROOKES

+ BLACK MOUNTAIN POETS
+ THE BROKEN BROADCAST

 

Thursday 11th March

Doors 8pm £3.50adv / £5door

 

"They're more like one of those urchin folk-inflected collectives such as Larrikin Love (RIP) or even Noah & the Whale, with hints of the win-some, lose-some C86 brigade, the Smiths at their twee-est (say, circa The Boy With the Thorn in His Side), the plaintive jangle of the Housemartins, even Belle and Sebastian." THE GUARDIAN. Catch these Sheffield lads before they go conquering SxSW.

 

EXIT BY NAME

+ FACE THE UNKNOWN

+ THE WHITE BEAR EXPERIMENT

 

Saturday 13th March

Doors 8pm £3.50adv / £5door

 

Meaty, beaty, big and bouncy, Exit by Name’s set is full of skull-crunching power-anthems. Their songs are rhythmic, melodic and tighter than Simon Cowell’s belt. They have some pedigree too having played with Lost Prophets and Biffy Clyro.

 

LOOSELY ACOUSTIC FEATURING

RUSSELL AND THE WOLVES

+ MARK BODEN

+ SAMANTHA DURNAN

 

Friday 19th March

Doors 8pm, £3.50adv / £5door

 

Surf rocking and blues tinged Russell & The Wolves have been described as sounding like Jesus and the Mary Chain meets The White Stripes.  They have shared the stage with acts as diverse as Hatcham Social and Bob Log III.  Currently promoting their five track EP Vroom-A-No-No, this is acoustic rockabilly at its best! 

COMMITTED

Friday 26th March

Doors 8pm, £3, 18+ Alt Club

Expect the very best in rock/goth/alt and cyber tunes from the people who bring you Asylum.

YOUNG REBEL SET (SINGLE LAUNCH)      + EMIL FRIIS

 

Saturday 27th March

Doors 8pm, £5adv / £7door

 

A very special night for the (‘spit and sawdust band’) Young Rebel Set, with the launch of their new single Walk On. Very much a story telling band of the same ilk as Bob Dylan and The Pogues, they return to Stockton from their European tour and will have you clapping your hands and stamping your feet. Denmark-based Emil Fris also lands here before embarking on a small tour of the States taking with him laid back songs of broken heart and bitter tales. If Country/blues is your thang, then this is for you…oh yes!
