Ask anyone in Tyne & Wear who the most exciting artists currently are, and (aside from the ubiquitous Sam Fender) not far from the top will be North Shields’ Club Paradise. Also close to the top of my uncited, imaginary list will be Sunderland’s Plastic Glass and Newcastle’s The Timewasters…so imagine the sheer thrill of seeing all three artists on one line-up, at Sunderland’s Independent on Friday 25th March!

Club Paradise are known for their infectious indie rock bangers, which flex a clear influence from glam rock on tracks like the boisterous Teenagers and recent track Friends Online. This gig will also serve as a launchpad for their new single, Colette. The band played at Independent during their Waves Festival last November, and they clearly made quite an impression. Plastic Glass are an Independent staple; their indie rock brings in an almost punk influence, with brash tracks such as Come Clean and the anthemic Let Me Know – songs that you and the rest of the crowd will be shouting along to.

The Timewasters, meanwhile, feature grunge-inspired guitar riffs, with an emphasis on storytelling lyrics, such as the politically-fuelled Dear My Government and the sombre California, which come complete with alternative rock soundscapes.

Club Paradise, Plastic Glass and The Timewasters play Independent, Sunderland on Friday 25th March.
