Radio 3’s programme which brings listeners gigs from around the UK, exploring the local alternative and underground music scene, comes to Sage Gateshead for the first time.
Presenter Verity Sharp introduces:
A performance from Midnight Doctors – a genre-defying mutant big-band featuring a diverse blend of some of Newcastle’s finest left field musicians. In this rare live show, they will be appearing as a 7-piece band performing special live arrangements of material from their first two albums, ranging from cosmic jazz funeral marches and cop-show noir to explosive improv and apocalyptic avant-rock.
Singer/songwriter Nathalie Stern: her sound has evolved from quirky looped folk songs to darker and more experimental pieces with nods to HP Lovecraft and John Carpenter.
Swarm Front: a noise group performing new music by composer/DJ Mariam Rezaei
Verity Sharp has won a Silver Sony Radio Academy award for Music Broadcaster of the Year and has presented programmes for TV as well as Radio 3’s Late Junction.
