On Saturday 18th August, The Georgian Theatre/Bar & The Green Room hosts ‘Day In. Day Out.’ – a micro-fest celebrating local music with synthetic elements. The festival is a great opportunity to showcase artists in a variety of different styles and genres from electro to synth-pop to hip-hop.
David Saunders of the Tees Music Alliance, who programmed the event, adds: “Teesside and the North East are full of fantastic artists who utilise technology and as a result create interesting and unique music. As a frequent listener of BBC Introducing on BBC Tees, I’ve noticed plenty of electronic artists and groups using synths and submitting music, so with the help of Bob Fischer, we programmed this fantastic little music festival.”
The line up features synth-driven indie rock/pop bands such as Newcastle’s rising stars Twist Helix, fresh from Tramlines fringe festival and NARC Fest and who are releasing their album ‘Ouseburn’ on Spanish label Paul Back Music in October. Others include local disco-rockers Be Quiet. Shout Loud, alt-experimental act Sticky Pearls, vibrant pop/rock act Serinette and Darlington duo There There.
There will be DJs in the form or Bad Funk and Life Of a Dustbin, alongside Richmond’s much acclaimed alt-hip-hop gang Ceiling Demons, spoken word/electro fusion acts such as Green Room headliner Faithful Johannes and The Georgian Bar stage headliner/Teesside producer/collaborator, Huntsman. Completing the line up are electronic music makers Oort Cloud, Emile’s Telegraphic Transmission Device, We Come From Mars and Warped Freqs.
