Autumn/Winter Shows

No gigs planned for over the summer. We’re back in September with a show featuring The Cyanide Pills supported by The Filth and The Continental Quilts. This takes place at The Green Room (part of The Georgian Theatre complex) in Stockton on Friday 27th September.

The Cyanide Pills are the face of punk rock in 2019, a gang of ***** from a desolate land, also known as Leeds. Think of The Boys, Buzzcocks, The Briefs and you won’t be far wrong. In fact, think Johnny Thunders!

Nov 2nd at The Westgarth sees a show from the legendary Goodbye Mr MacKenzie. The band originally split in the early nineties amid frustration at not duplicating the success achieved in the UK  across the rest of the world. Now on the 30th anniversary of the classic “Good Deeds And Dirty Rags” the band have reformed to play some low key shows in Scotland.  These were a tremendous success, rapidly selling out good sized venues and now they have been persuaded to carry on and play a select number of shows outside of Scotland. One of which we’re delighted to say is for us is in Middlesbrough. Tickets are already on sale and have been absolutely flying out. 

Also in November sees a very welcome return for The Fallen Leaves. It’s punk rock again but this time for gentlemen. The Westgarth in Middlesbrough has become a home from home for the band and they enjoy playing there as much as we enjoy watching them. This one is on Saturday Nov 16th and the band will be celebrating the release of the self financed “Live At The Hope And Anchor ” album and hopefully will have copies for sale at the gig.

The final gig currently confirmed for 2019 (there maybe more!) is a co-promotion with Tees Music Alliance and features Manchester legends A Certain Ratio and takes place at The Georgian Theatre on Saturday December 6th.

Hailed universally as pioneers of what became known as “punk funk” thanks to the success of ‘Shack Up’ on both sides of the Atlantic, their sound is not easily pigeon holed and their influence can never be understated. The band introduced the avant-garde elements of funk, jazz, electronics, tape loops and technology to the pop song, wrapping it in a post punk aesthetic, adding great clothes and the coolest haircuts.

A Certain Ratio are proud to be a partner of Action Against Hunger’s MealTickets campaign, with £1 from ticketing fees on each ticket supporting the charity’s amazing work saving the lives of malnourished children around the world. http://againsthunger.uk/mealtickets

Kitty Daisy & Lewis

Kitty Daisy & Lewis play The Georgian Theatre in Stockton on Saturday 8th June with doors at 8pm. Tickets are available from the venue and on line at SEE Tickets here

It’s hard to believe that Kitty Daisy and Lewis have been around so long and yet are still so young. They initially broke through in 2006 when their second single “Mean Son Of A Gun” was released.

The trio of siblings, from a musical family – dad, Graeme Durham, an engineer at London’s Exchange studio, mum, Ingrid Weiss, the former drummer in post punk band  “The Raincoats” – have have now released 4 albums, the most latest being 2018’s “Superscope” a sparkling analogue production, recorded in their vintage studio in Camden Town.

Described as “a gift to those of us who still believe in magic,” London sisters & brother Kitty, Daisy & Lewis Durham are an extraordinary trio of songwriters who can play any instrument they lay their hands on.

They are often pigeon holed with the retro tag, but Superscope is no genre exercise. Yes, they are proud of their influences – R&B, blues, funk, jazz and soul – but their music is cast in their own image. “There’s no nostalgia, no recreation of past eras,” says Daisy. “It’s a mixture of all of our minds, a real melting pot.”

Superscope continues to harness their ability to create pop infused soul, blues, rock ‘n’ roll and more, mixing up genres to perfection emerging with their musical armoury. The first fruits from the band’s studio session arrived in the shape of the single “Down On My Knees”, a high octane burst of infectious glam tinged rock ‘n’ roll, an impressive introduction to the album.

Starting out young, they have inspired audiences and gathered an impressive fan base from Amy Winehouse to David Lynch. Each rotating on different instruments with a live set that includes punk-infused pop, R&B, jazz, soul, blues, ska, country, rock ‘n’ roll and more, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis mix up genres to perfection!

Kitty Daisy & Lewis tickets available from SEE Tickets and other on line outlets.

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis

Extremely pleased to announce that Kitty, Daisy & Lewis are the latest confirmed show for 2019. Taking place at The Georgian Theatre on Saturday June 8th this will be one of the highlights of the summer.

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis have come a long way since they broke through in 2006 with their second single, the exhilarating ‘Mean Son Of A Gun’. The trio of siblings, from a musical family – dad, Graeme Durham, an engineer at London’s Exchange studio, mum, Ingrid Weiss, the former drummer in post punkers ‘The Raincoats’ – have since then cemented their reputation with three critically acclaimed albums, 2008’s self titled debut, 2011’s ‘Smoking In Heaven’ and 2015’s ‘The Third’, and their fourth, ‘Superscope’, which is quite frankly their most accomplished to date.

Described as “a gift to those of us who still believe in magic,” London sisters & brother Kitty, Daisy & Lewis Durham are an extraordinary trio of songwriters who can play any instrument they lay their hands on.

With sales of over a quarter of a million albums and sold out headline worldwide tours, they have also opened for Coldplay, Mark Ronson and Stereophonics.

Their latest album Superscope is a sparkling analogue production, recorded in their vintage studio in Camden Town. Kitty, Daisy and Lewis are often pigeonholed with the retro tag, but Superscope is no genre exercise. Yes, they are proud of their influences – R&B, blues, funk, jazz and soul – but their music is cast in their own image. “There’s no nostalgia, no recreation of past eras,” says Daisy. “It’s a mixture of all of our minds, a real melting pot.”

“And most importantly,” says Lewis, who never wanted to be a musician in the first place, “it’s a real gas”.

Starting out young, they have inspired audiences and gathered an impressive fan base from Amy Winehouse to David Lynch. Each rotating on different instruments with a live set that includes punk-infused pop, R&B, jazz, soul, blues, ska, country, rock ‘n’ roll and more, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis mix up genres to perfection!

Tickets are available NOW from all the usual outlets.
