The Georgian Theatre in Stockton is serving up a slice of summer on Friday 20 May as it welcomes NME favourites, and the tooth-achingly sweetly named, The History of Apple Pie.

 

The band formed late on in 2010 and since playing their first gig in January of this year (supporting Chapel Club, no less) they’ve had a whirlwind success which has seen them hand picked to play the Friends of Mine Festival, as well as the NME Radar Tour; which has made stars of La Roux, Hurts and The Joy Formidable, amongst others.

 

Described as London’s answer to Best Coast, this boy-girl combo sing hazy summer tunes that will have you grinning from ear to ear, and it’s no surprise they’re attracting considerable attention from near and far with live performances that truly live up to the hype.

 

Guitarist Jerome Watson is no stranger to critical acclaim as a former member of Hatcham Social, who had received five star reviews across the board for their debut album You Dig The Tunnel, I’ll Hide The Soil.

 

With The History of Apple Pie drawing comparisons to The Beach Boys, The Drums, Beach House and Galaxie 500 it’s a perfect indication of what to expect from these lovelies.

 

"The harmonic vocals with guitar driven pop melodies conjure up visions of sunnier days when anything was possible. You could in all honestly be looking at one of the most exciting bands of next year." BeatCast(dot)tv

 

Support comes from two GT debutantes. Human Traffic rises from the ashes of Teesside faves Red Rabbits and is packing one hell of a musical punch. Saltburn five- piece The Emerald Skye only formed in March of this year, no need to be gentle with this lot though - they'll knock your socks off with their bouncy indie-pop.

 

This Friday sees Teesside’s oldest venue The Georgian Theatre showcasing FOUR of the areas hottest talents as Brit-Pop come Mod-Rock band The Unsung Heroes make their Georgian debut with a little help from savvy rock’n’rollers The Last Fakers, acoustic rockers The Bends and an unplugged set from Gaz Owen.

 

Gig goers can keep the party going at local indie melting pot Ku Bar, as they gain free entry to the Prince Regent Street club after 11.30pm with their advance gig tickets from The Georgian Theatre. That’s 2 nights for the price of 1!
