Reliably informed

Taking place on Saturday 7th July, NARC. Fest will, for its 11th year, take over the Ouseburn Valley with a series of free gigs! We’ve handpicked some excellent local promoters who have curated line-ups which span all genres and styles and we’ll be announcing them all over the coming weeks.

Allan Scorer from Little Buildings reveals all for the venue’s contribution this year, including the dress code…


Toga Toga Toga…So, I’m not gonna lie, this was a total fluke as we already had a date pencilled in with three of the four acts playing, so I am not taking any credit for this one!

The backstory is that one of my absolute favourite gang of local heads, Hot Sex For Boys, wanted to host a toga party alongside No Teeth and Lovely Wife. As the Little Buildings is a creative place for creative people we were all over that as the fun simply never ends with this lot!

We needed to draft in an opening act and went with local experimental post-psych noisy four-piece Luna Del Cazador, or Toga Del Cazador if we are being smart. Since forming late 2016 they have built up a somewhat eclectic fan base and graced the Sage Gateshead stage at last year’s TUSK Festival. Expect howling vocals, one floor tom being used like a full kit, zany guitar solos and a steel lap board thrown into the mix for something very unique and intricate.

No Teeth really need no introduction; having spent the last year making waves across the city and beyond, the now five-piece featuring members of SUSAN bring a whole new level of depth, and with front man Sam acting like a circus ringleader or chaotic conductor akin to that Bugs Bunny episode where he riles up Daffy Duck in front of an orchestra, you never know what to expect.

Lovely Wife are another band who are a whole new level of ‘you never know what you’re gonna get’. Full time members Garrick and Watts provide bass and a signature style of vocals, they feature in at least another three projects to my knowledge, maybe more. A revolving door of guest artists drop in and out for live performances, and they have recently seen two drum kits set up at recent shows because why the hell not. 

Headlining the stage and taking the credit here are our chief protagonists Hot Sex For Boys, with some of the dirtiest, sleaziest garage punk rock. Every show (not a gig, BTW) is a show with different themes set out for the night, such as Xmas with the Boys, Bedtime with the Boys and Lucha with the Boys…so strap on in for Toga with the Boys! Did I mention it’s a toga party?
