More New Shows For 2020

2 more new shows for 2020 to run along side the previously announced Working Men’s Club, Dreadzone & Pete Wylie shows.

Adopted Teessider Kirk Brandon returns on February 1st for an aKoustiK show in The Green Room of The Georgian Theatre. The show will once again feature Sam Sansbury accompanying Kirk with his outstanding Cello playing.

This show is undertaken as part of Independent Venue Week. Independent Venue Week is a 7-day celebration of music venues around the country and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out. All who work at and are involved in promoting live music at the Georgian Theatre and The Green Room venue are honoured to be part of the process.

In April we welcome one of the most iconic bands of the last 40 years. A band who not only define a genre they created it. On April 9th The Meteors appear at The Georgian Theatre for a night of pyschobilly madness & mayhem.

Tickets available on line from The Georgian Theatre and from SEE Tickets here . Also in person at Sound It Out Records in Stockton.

Working Men’s Club Georgian Theatre 14th February 2020

Mega pleased to confirm one the country’s most exciting young bands will be appearing at The Georgian Theatre on Friday 14th February 2020.

Working Men’s Club hail from the cultural hotbed of Calderwood in West Yorkshire. They have recently just completed a tour supporting Fat White Family are are signed to Heavenly Records, home of another fine West Yorkshire band The Orielles

Working Men’s Club make angular post-punk, influenced by bands like Suicide, Wire and Fall. They grabbed plenty of buzz in 2019 with their debut single, ‘Bad Blood’.

Forcing backs off the wall and deeper onto the dancefloor, follow-up electric stomper ‘Teeth’ possesses enough bite to set pearly whites on edge and induce a wildly ecstatic feeling that’s anything but comfortable.

“It is a metaphor,” teases the band’s singer, guitarist and beat-maker, Sydney Minsky-Sargeant. “It could be about going insane or what you see, what you think you feel inside, a lot of things… put through a drum machine… basically we just want to confuse the fuck out of people, in a good way!”

The last 12 months has seen the band buckle up for a meteoric rise that’s been a hell of a ride; “Signing to Heavenly was a big deal for us,” offers Jake. “We’ve worshipped the label and its bands for a long time so it’s nice to be part of the family. It’s a culture; we’re all running in parallel.”

I recently saw the band live in Newcastle and was blown away. A young up and coming band, full of attitude (in a good way) making fresh exciting live music. You can hear the influences but they make the noise there own.

And they won’t be playing venues this size for much longer. See them up close and intimate whilst you can.

Working Men’s Club play The Georgian Theatre on Friday 14th February 2020. Supports to be confirmed.

Tickets fro SEE here or also in store at Sound It Out Records or online at The Georgian Theatre web site.
