New promoters are always a welcome addition to any region’s music scene, particularly when they know what they’re doing. Hurrah then, for Rated R, who kick off a new season of rock gigs at The Corner Flag in Sunderland this month. Devised by Shaun Tate and Craig Davis, the lads have put some serious thought into what makes a good rock gig – and then gone one step further.

Their Thursday night ventures will mix things up somewhat, with live music, a music quiz, DJ sets and games, raffles and prizes on offer to eager punters. The free entry gigs will feature a broad range of musical styles, with blues, electronica, indie, alternative, metal, soul, country, hip-hop and good ol’ fashioned rock ‘n’ roll promised for future events. Gigs confirmed so far include Mackem alt. rockers Masamune and heavy rock band Warning! (Thursday 12th February) and quirk pop one-man band The Shooting Of… plus folk artist James Berry (Thursday 12th March).

With quiz prizes, drinks offers and fancy dress events intended to liven things up, Rated R are determined to start the weekend a day early.

Rated R will bring Warning! to The Corner Flag, Sunderland, on Thursday 12th February.
