Variety is the spice of life – so anyone seeking a far from mundane live music experience may be in luck, considering the line-up at Middlesbrough’s Base Camp on Saturday 2nd November. Four bands ranging from operatic rock to indie pop and hearty garage should provide a show satisfying enough to whisk away any winter blues.

Headliners Mt. Misery will be showing off the new tracks from their eponymous EP packed with that glorious indie pop. To celebrate, they’ll be joined by some of their personal faves as opening bands. Saltburn-by-the-Sea native Travis Shaw brings his poetic musings to proceedings, the filmmaker and musician’s finger-picked guitar style combines with a melodic sensibility and a quiet indie rock sound which brings to mind the likes of Biffy Clyro at their most epic. Further down the folk route, but this time on an operatic note, Nel Unlit’s intriguing folk-pop-opera project based on Neil Gaiman’s World’s End should unite graphic novel fans and music lovers alike. Those seeking something a bit louder are still catered for, as Teesside’s Onlooker will get the adrenaline going with punchy, melodic garage riffs.
