Don't Miss David Thomas Broughton

The incredible David Thomas Broughton is back on Teesside this summer playing at the Waiting Room, Eaglescliffe. This fella is phenomenal and totally unique.

Anchor Fast Anchor

There is a raging maelstrom centring on the Nags Head, Lazenby. Anchor Fast Anchor is an irresistible force constantly on the verge of lurching out of control.   For three people to wage such an aural assault is a feat in itself. James, Ryan and Lee produce short, sharp, pulsating epics that are a challenge to all your senses.   I have witnessed them live on their home turf, the ....

Final Dartz!

Before Young Rebel Set had even spat out their first sawdust jig and before The Chapman Family had even begun to look moody and smash up stages, top Teesside trio-cum-quartet DARTZ! were doing the kind of things that 99% of "musicians" can only dream of doing. Sadly, they recently announced that they were calling it a day - but we're happy to announce that they'll be bowing out with one final ....

Sirfs Up – But What A Brilliant Time Had By All

  What a festival again down by that other Riverside, Stockton. Perhaps the main message for me was that Stockton Fringe has come of age and outgrown the main SIRF festival.   Time was when the fringe was an extra benefit in the back room of the Sun Inn. If you had too much sun and frivolity then you could skulk indoors to some serious old punks and rockers. Not anymore, with huge ....

An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump: an amazing name and an amazing gig. An evening of intense, high octane music upstairs at Dr Browns then An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump breezed into town and WOW what a performance.   The tiny upstairs room was a hot and sticky place as The Gares barked out their dirty blues.
