With a line up which includes BBC Radio 6 Music darlings Monotony, alongside Brown Brogues, Milky Wimpshake & Sorry Escalator, this year’s event should be not one to miss.


Monotony are a 4 piece punk outfit from London/Brighton who are taking BBC Radio 6 Music by storm, getting daily plays on the Marc Riley show. Monotony is a project of the garage racket band Sauna Youth in which they all switched instruments.

They are joined by Manchester’s Brown Brogues, who have supported indie superstars The Kills on tour.

Also playing is one of the UKs best loved indie pop bands Milky Wimpshake. Fronted by Pete Dale, of the much-loved and legendary DIY label Slampt, who ruled the Newcastle scene for most of the ‘90’s and introduced us to bands such as Kenickie, Yummy Fur and Pussycat Trash. John Peel loved this band and you will too.

Completing the line-up are local lads Sorry Escalator. Formed in the summer of 2013, this shoegaze dreamboat three-piece are influenced by ‘bad lifestyles, sad stories and post-industrial landscapes’.

Doors open at 6.30pm, entry is free and there will be a cash bar.

Running order and further details TBA.

FREE, booking not required.
