The home of the blue pint has had much to celebrate over the last few months, despite the dire circumstances. Having been successful in their Culture Recovery Fund application and able to give the venue a lick of paint and put in new sound and lighting systems, Sunderland’s Independent have kept audiences entertained with online performances over the last few months, and now they’re gearing up to welcome punters back to what they do best: in person live shows.

The Mackems don’t mess about with their first two shows, choosing a quartet of bands who are certain to deliver high velocity live performances. Friday 28th will see alt. rock supergroup Kickin’ Lillies bring their riff-heavy show, with support from female-fronted quintet ABNORM, whose thrillingly raw rock sound has seen them reap plaudits from across the board.

Sunderland four-piece Hivemind prepare their dynamic pop rock on Saturday 29th, when they’ll be supported by Sunkings, who bring a melodic heavy rock sound to proceedings.

All shows will be seated and socially distanced, but that won’t stop the atmosphere being electric and the performances red hot.
