If you’re a fan of 80’s new wave then you’ll definitely want to head to the Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough on Saturday 8th December.
Rose McDowall, an ex-member of Strawberry Switchblade, will be performing with her live band featuring Russell Burns (formerly of The Fire Engines), and Jeremy Thoms (The Cathode).
Rose McDowall, along with Jill Bryson, formed the duo Strawberry Switchblade in 1981; the Scottish pair were best known for their 1985 chart hit ‘Since Yesterday’ and iconic clothing featuring polka dots and bows.
Following the break-up of Strawberry Switchblade, McDowall continued her music career, exploring her interest in psychedelic, neo-folk and post-industrial music with a considerably darker tone but the same angelic, heartfelt vocals.
Rose McDowall & band play at The Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough on Saturday 8th December with support from alternative duo, Sons of the Descent. Tickets, priced at £11.00 in advance, can be purchased now from seetickets.com.
