Looking for your next raucous DIY fix? Look no further as SEMI PRECIOUS FEST is landing at the Lubber Fiend at the end of April. For the uninitiated, the Lubber Fiend is Newcastle’s latest lovably wonky venue, having occupied its home on Blandford Street for just nine months. With its chipboard benches and signature pale ale, it’s difficult to imagine a better setting for this two-day DIY extravaganza – the line-up is also set to pack a punch. Headliners for each day include experimental electronic pioneers Shit and Shine on Saturday 29th, and Salfordian noise-rock collective Gnod on Sunday 30th, both of which boast a sound that can only really be described as an attack on the senses (in a really good way).

Saturday will also feature appearances from self-proclaimed ‘cellar-dweller scum rockers’ Louse and an afterparty soundtracked by Gonzo Dog, whilst Sunday will see sets from Boro-based solo project Ivan the Tolerable and groovy drone-rockers PAK40, among others. With tickets currently priced at a pretty reasonable 30 quid for two days, you can’t really go wrong – so snap ‘em up quick before the presale ends. Don’t forget to donate to The Lubber Fiend’s ongoing fundraiser while you’re at it!

SEMI PRECIOUS FEST takes place on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th April at The Lubber Fiend, Newcastle.
