*Saturday 4th August * FREE ENTRY from 5pm * LIVE MUSIC/DJ SETS/MERCH&ZINE STALL*

On Saturday 4th August, running alongside the Stockton International Riverside Festival (SIRF 18). Imagination Engine, by invitation of Tees Music Alliance, take over The Green Room. We are to curate a showcase of local and regional, genre and medium spanning, cultural delights. Expect to experience an eclectic blend of mind-bending music and art.

The event boasts live performances by bands from Darlington, Sunderland, Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Stockton-on-Tees. With DJ sets from friends and colleagues from local publications, promoters, record stores and labels. There will also be a band Merch&Zine stall.

Not only will the Merch&Zine stall feature local publications Point Blank Teesside and NE Volume,  but we’ll also have copies of a specially commissioned limited edition fanzine available too. Specific to these festivities the one off event zine features artistic and lyrical contributions from those on the event bill. Find it with the other fantastic fanzines, publications and band merchandise we have too.  

Feeling that friendly festival vibe we’ve reached out & put together an event of performances by specially invited guests. It’s FREE ENTRY from 5 so bring dancing shoes & your good times vibe..

On the bill for you we have:

Sorry Escalator

“Retro psychedelic surfer vibes with biting lyrics that speak to the current political situation in the UK, but can also be applied to the craziness going on in the US.” (EclecticMusicLover).
“Alt rock built on post-punk verses with swirling MBV like guitars to the fore, gazes firmly set to shoes.” (Backseat Mafia).

Golden Age of Nothing

“a loud and noisy squall of prettiness sees the waltz of guitar and vocal interrupted by sporadic blasts of distortion” (NARC)

“a roller-coaster ride of sound, overlaid with creamy guitars and wailing sweeps of electric violin. And politically-driven lyrics” (NE Volume).

"Exotic sounding distortion and grinding vocals really give you a sense of screaming frustration." (Spotlight UK)

"Discordant rhythms, squealing warped solos and pleasingly down tempo outros."

No nonsense garage rock from Teesside.

Novyi Lef

Taking their name from a 1920's Russian art publication, NOVYI LEF deliver powerful, passionate, political synth-punk, via analogue synth squeals and danceable beats."
 Politically charged Punk(NARC)
