A new night of stripped back performances launches on Friday 28th May at Base Camp in Middlesbrough. A socially distanced, intimate showcase of some of the region’s freshest emerging talents, the Pindrop events (not to be confused with the Hartlepool-based promoter) provide an opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the art of music in its purest form.

The first instalment sees local acts Sophia and Alfie Blue take to the stage. Sophia, with her humble and emotional brand of pop music, has been tipped as one to watch for 2021 by BBC Introducing in the North East, and it’s easy to see why. Her captivating style has sparked the imagination of her growing fanbase and cemented her firmly on the radar of the region’s taste makers. Alfie Blue is the lead singer of local favourites Ocean Floor, and his new project sees him bring bright, indie pop songs and dreamy sounds for fans of Mac Demarco, Dayglow and Baby Pablo.

Pindrop continues weekly on Fridays in June until the return of non-socially distanced shows later that month (fingers crossed), with acts slated to perform including Phibi and Scrannabis (Friday 4th), Dressed Like Wolves and Epilogues (Friday 11th), and Nel Unlit and Bloody Death (Friday 18th June).
