In a ‘bands play piss up in brewery’ shocker, we’re pretty excited about this corker of a gig at Newcastle craft beer makers Almasty Brew Co.’s Newcastle premises.
Featuring riff-meisters Drifts, epic indie rockers The Great Curve, Norwegian indie power popsters Beezewax and fast-rising shouty synth trio Tough Tits, the gig on Friday 7th October promises some delicious rock action alongside some pretty tasty tipples. There’s further fun to be had courtesy of Drifts’ new releases; the band will let loose a couple of new tracks on the run up to the gig, and one track – The Americans – even comes with its own beer (as you do), a limited edition brew chock full of American hops which comes complete with a download code. It’s also hoped that Almasty will roll out the beer across the city after the gig. Visual treats will be on offer too, with limited edition hand screen prints signed by the band (also with accompanying download code). If all this wasn’t enough, tasty dough-based treats are on offer from Scream For Pizza.
As this event is handily titled Almasty Session No.1, we’re expecting more musical goodness in the future. The venue is incongruously nestled on an industrial estate near Silverlink, but for those of you without your own wheels or the desire to ride the Metro to nearby Shiremoor, transport will depart Newcastle’s Free Trade Inn or Pop Recs in Sunderland. Fill your boots!
