Following on from our first pop-up promotional gig last month at The Green Room, we’re buzzing to be able to announce our swift return, with the first in a series of collaborations with Big Figure Promotions at The Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough. Our premiere feature being:

The Staches | Lassie + Guest Support

Psychedelic Swiss lo-fi pop punk garage rockers The Staches return to the UK touring new LP ‘This Lake Is Pointless’ this October. On the back of acclaimed critical success with their second studio album ‘Placid Faces’ successive releases on Bongo Joe Records, Dumpster Tapes and Six Tonnes de Chair Records and subsequent world tour, the band are on the road again bringing new music and their high energy, intense and frenetic live show to town.

The Staches are two girls and two guys from Geneva whose sound is born of frustration and emerges from that same embryonic indie rock fluid of cultural scenes and influences that spawned the likes of The Breeders, Sonic Youth, PJ Harvey and Suburban Lawns.

Zombie surf rock riffs, psychedelic synth sounds and dark waves of spooky delay
(Backseat mafia).

A barrage of fuzzed out guitars, throbbing bass, crashing drums and hissing synths(50thirdand3rd).

They bring with them on this tour support from Liepzig, Germany, in the form of Lassie. Yes, like the dog. Imagine if you will a cross between 1970’s LSD furballs the Banana Splits and Ty Seagall with a side of Hot Snakes to produce a power pop garage punk party.

We’ll also have local guest support (tbc) on the night, which will be our first in a series of collaborations with Big Figure Promotions hosted at the legendary Westgarth Social Club. This is in sync with our series and draws on support from good friends Disgraceland Baker St. too.

We will also have DJ sets from Dovetail Joints, Point Blank Teesside and Imagination Engine DJs before, between and after the bands.

Tickets are available online now from See Tickets via this link:

Printed tickets will be available in selected local stores soon and on the door on the night.

Tickets are priced @ £5 ADV & £7 OTD | Doors 7pm | First band on @ 8pm
