After the success of their maiden outing in August, touring cooperative Right Here have announced their next run of gigs this month.

The touring network, which comprises of Teesside’s Famous Last Words, Sunderland’s Independent Live and Newcastle’s Little Buildings, intends to strengthen the gig going community with their cooperative approach to live programming. Three bands will perform a headline slot in their hometown, rotating the line-up across Little Buildings, Independent and The Green Room, Stockton.

March’s iteration of Right Here features a trio of alt. rock artists who all promise to bring thrilling and raucous live performances to the stage. Sunderland alt. rockers Kickin’ Lillies have been praised for their catchy rhythms and meaty riffs, while Newcastle’s Shallow (fka Creature) peddle a delightful line in fuzzy vocals and scuzzy, grungy atmospherics. Middlesbrough’s SWEARS will head up the Stockton show with their doomy beats and reverb-fuelled vocals; the band have been increasingly surpassing each live performance they throw themselves into, so expect electrifying performances!

This kind of collaborative approach to programming is being rightly praised for its community spirit and willingness for all involved to succeed; all that’s needed is an engaged, music hungry audience – which is where you step in!

Right Here present SWEARS, Shallow and Kickin’ Lillies at The Green Room, Stockton on Thursday 10th, Little Buildings in Newcastle on Friday 11th and Independent, Sunderland on Saturday 12th March.
