Sunderland’s Independent welcomes a night of high octane rock reverence as three superb local artists take to the stage on Friday 7th October

Local lady Eve Cole starts the night, showcasing her indie pop sensibilities and proving why she was this years winner of the Alan Hull Award. With her momentum beginning to accelerate, Cole will be backed by a full band, making her opening set something special to watch!

Hailing from Newcastle, Pave The Jungle take the stage next. With Blank Studios producing their debut EP,  their sound feels as euphoric as it is explosive. Hitting the ground running, the fuzzy rock duo have automatically began churning out arena-sized anthems that ooze confidence and swagger. Dynamic and endearing, the charming and brash vocals of Rachael Whittle pair perfectly with Scott Jeffrey’s punching drums. 

Turning the guitars up a level still are the night’s headliner; Pit Pony are set to bring the fire. Caustic, racing and full of force, there’s an unrelenting energy with each Pity Pony chorus that explodes with pent up, Northern heart, crackling with themes of discontent, anxiety, rebellion and paranoia. Manic guitars and crunching drums pave the roads, but it’s the vocals that strap you in and fire you across them.

Certainly a night for those who love loud and local sounds.

Pit Pony, Pave The Jungle and Eve Cole play Independent, Sunderland on Friday 7th October.
