Reliably informed

Sunderland’s indie-rock quartet, Plastic Glass, maintain their upward trajectory on the back of a series of sold-out shows in Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow and support This Feeling and Scruff Of The Neck, with the release of their new single, Let Me Know. The band reminisce about some of their excellent live shows by giving us their top five venues.

Think Tank 
Low ceilings, dark, sweatbox. What more could you want from a venue? With its collage-style wall art and bank stickers covering the place it’s the perfect gig room, with two headline shows and countless support slots here this place holds a load of memories. Has to be one of our favourite venues to play in Newcastle.

Eagle Inn
Slightly out of the centre of Manchester in Salford, The Eagle Inn is a small 80 cap room connected to an equally small bar. There could only be 3 metres of space from stage to back of the room but with the crazy high ceiling and small overlooking balcony, it’s a lush space. Also, we met Kashmere in the smoking area which was cool! 

The Amsterdam 
The underground venue in the heart of Glasgow is a favourite of ours, brewing their own beers upstairs to a sweaty gig room downstairs it was all you could want from a venue. With a cool speak set up of a rack with two massive horns on either side, the sound was lethal. 

KU Bar
Stockton’s finest – KU Bar. The plethora of acts that have graced the KU Bar stage in the past is something to behold and the whole aura of the place is amazing, a proper indie bar. When we played at KU Bar we got the chance to see them doing what they do best, promoting the UK’s best up and coming acts as we played support to The K’s. Top marks for KU always putting on a top night and for being top people.

Sunderland’s staple venue/nightclub independent has to be our favourite of all, simply because of the memories. Supporting bands such as The Snuts and The Pale White, our biggest headline shows, crazy nights out and of course, the famous blue pints. With brick walls and an unforgettable stinge, it has to be our favourite places.
