By all accounts, Sunderland’s Ivy House excels in every aspect of the typical pub experience. Which makes it a cracking venue to host a night of punk, poetry and art spearheaded by Cherry & Peesh.

Cherry & Peesh are a poetic and provocative punk rock ‘n’ roll acoustic duo. Separately, they have both been prolific writers and performers, having now come together to curate evenings in their own image. Fiercely political and unashamedly punk, their forthcoming show on Saturday 30th November features performances from Sunderland’s melodic rockers Loudmouth, old school punks The Band For Disease Control And Prevention, whose energy brings the style bang up to the 21st century. They’ll be supported by Ben Dawson Punshon, the host of Newcastle spoken word evening Babble Gum, who will offer his unique reflections on modern society. Home educated by gay parents and diagnosed with ASD, Ben’s work reflects the tribulations he experienced growing up in a hetero-normative and neuro-typical world. On a more visual note, freehand spray painter Frank Styles and Fe Duncan (aka Damned Fine Art) will add an artistic flourish to the evening by showcasing printmaking, performance and sculpture.
