Teesside-based music promoters, Into Tomorrow, have announced two very special dates across November.
The Georgian Theatre in Stockton will play host to London-based reggae sensations The Hempolics on Friday 10th and psychedelic-four piece Syd Arthur on Friday 17th.
Into Tomorrow not only stage gigs, but they’re also building a community filled with like-minded music lovers from across the country; whether they be bands, artists, bloggers, reviewers, radio presenters or other promoters. They pride themselves on “Bringing the stars of tomorrow to Teesside today”, which is exactly what they’ve done this month.
The Hempolics combine the ingredients of reggae, electro, hip-hop, rock and pop, all shaken up to create a cocktail of sunshine, reflected in their debut album ‘Kiss, Cuddle and Torture: Volume 1’. The album has recently been 6Music’s record of the day and has featured on Liz Kershaw’s All-Time Top 30 ‘All Killer No Filler’ chart.
In terms of Syd Arthur, their unique modern twist on psych-rock has captured widespread interest across the music industry, seeing them tour the US with the likes of The Strokes, White Denim and Julian Lennon, as well as working with Paul Weller and Noel Gallagher. Their album ‘Apricity’ has been critically-acclaimed, receiving 4 stars in Mojo, Q and The Guardian, plus a ‘Best Album’ nomination in the 2016 Prog Magazine Awards.
Support for Syd Arthur comes from Middlesbrough’s Crease and Billingham/Hartlepool’s Silver Trees.
The Hempolics gig, running in association with Bonus Grooves, will take place on Friday 10th November. The Syd Arthur gig, running in association with TMA, will take place on Friday 17th November. Tickets for both gigs are now on sale at teesmusicalliance.org.uk.
