Andy from The Kids Are Solid Gold & I are organising a brand new multi-venue metropolitan music festival in the heart of Middlesbrough this October. Twisterella Festival is centred around the Linthorpe Road & Southfield Road area of town and will be showcasing over 40 of the finest emerging national and international bands. Tickets are on-sale now priced at £15 and the line-up, well, I might be biased, but I reckon it’s ace. Be ahead of the curve and discover your new favourite band:
Just confirmed the brilliant THUMPERS to play the Mixtape 5th Birthday bash on Tuesday 11th February. Love this band, make sure you check ’em out if you haven’t already:

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.
