Just confirmed my first DIY punk rock gig of 2014. It’s gonna be a goodun! Here’s the deal:
Rivals + Algiers + Sons Of The City + Red Wolves
The Westgarth Social Club in Middlesbrough
Friday 7th February 2014 – 8pm – £5 on the door
A gloriously heavy, life-affirming three-piece from the North-East of England. Featuring members of The Futureheads and The Mercury League, the band formed out of a shared love of 80s hardcore. New single “I’m Not An Animal” out now on Tiny Lights Recordings.
Sheffield duo John W Goodwin (The Maple State) and William K J Anderson (DARTZ!) play truly brilliant songs influenced by Death Cab for Cutie, American Football, The Weakerthans and The Walkmen. Debut album “You’re The Captain” released by Xtra Mile Recordings (Frank Turner, Against Me, Future Of The Left) this February.

Tickets are £8 in advance and are already selling well – early purchase strongly advised:
