This is going to be an absolutely smashing show and I’m sitting wondering why I haven’t got myself a ticket yet. Ah yes, I’m super-lazy and clicking that ticket link is always something to do later. Anyway, don’t be like me because Wonderful People #1 looks, erm, absolutely wonderful. Brought to you by Teesside promoter Pay For The Piano, if you want a vague idea of what it’s all about just think of it as a big ol’ mix of punky, post-rock, emo, post-hardcore and math-rock bands from around the North all on the same bill at Middlesbrough’s sexiest social club, the Westgarth, on Saturday 5th October.

Some of the artists showing off their wares are harsh noiseniks Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaind, Boro’s legendary Pellethead, Tyneside cute punx Blóm, Leeds’ math prog widdle-maestros Talltalker, Teesside’s new kids on the block Palace Watson, who’ve been making waves recently with their spooky emo punk, Onlooker bring the garage rock vibes, and This Ain’t Vegas/B>E>A>K/Lake Poets alumni White Legs round out the bill with their DC-style hardcore sound. Bobbing and lurching along is compulsory and a ridiculously low door tax of £7.50 will get you in on the action.
