Psych rock behemoths TOY are set to play Stockton for the first time in two years on Saturday 30th May. Playing as part of Sonic Union, a series of gigs curated by Tees Music Alliance, the London quintet will headline the Georgian Theatre, alongside a multitude of bands joining them at nearby venues The Green Room and The Sun Inn. ​Joining TOY on the bill at the Georgian are The Vickers. Hailing from Italy, the dreamy psych quartet, alongside Silver Trees and Corey Bowen & The Midnight Dolphins, will provide the calm before the sonic assault provided by the headliners. Simultaneously, sister venue The Green Room will play host to local math-rockers Weird Shapes; preceded by the drone-heavy Dead End Street Band, brand new doomsters Dead Moon Lizard Kings and gloomy art-rock from The Golden Age of Nothing.

Storming the stage at The Sun Inn will be the eccentric Evil Blizzard with a rare North Eastern appearance. The eclectic group, which features four bassists, headline the small, yet atmospheric venue, supported by the bluesy post-punk of Cellar Door, psych rock from Newcastle’s Kobadelta and reverb-laden stoner metal from First Process Church of Mars to open up the proceedings.

With a line-up as mind-melting as this, and with yet more exciting goings-on to be announced, for a measly tenner entry fee this event is not to be missed.
