Stockton superstars Young Rebel Set have had an absolutely brilliant year, so what better way to celebrate than to bring their annual festive hometown hootenanny to ARC.


Thursday 23rd December : YULE REBEL SET @ ARC in Stockton : 9pm : 18+ : £6 adv


Box Office: 01642 525199



You don't get described as "huge, life-affirming songs that nod to Springsteen'n'Dylan" by The Fly, "raw and honest and true" by The Guardian and "the perfect antidote to cold, careerist indie" by NME if you're not half good… Luckily for us, Young Rebel Set are all good. 


The mysterious troubadours that form YRS preach full-blooded tales of tough love, hard luck and the triumph of romance against the odds. Influenced by the likes of Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, every spit and sawdust jig is spun from the blood, sweat, tears, toil and glory of an extraordinary group and woven into a rousing patchwork of gritty urban folk. 


Such luminaries as Zane Lowe, Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens have been giving the lads regular spins on the radio, NME can't get enough of them and having spent the past 12 months incessantly touring all over Europe, Joe Public can't get enough of them either!


 The brilliant video for their equally brilliant new single 'Measure Of A Man' features Jo Hartley from This Is England 86 and Dead Man's Shoes and is well worth 3 minutes and 9 seconds of your time: 




It's a hit.

Support comes from ex-Seahorses front-man Chris Helme, Jimmy & The Sounds and a special stripped down acoustic set from the wonderful Cattle & Cane. DJ Ste Foy (Empire/Uncle Alberts) will be on hand to keep you in the Christmas spirit until the early hours.
