Halloween special? No, this is much more special than that: after three incredible performances as N /\ L /\ last year, we’re bringing the re-named Straight Girl back to The Cumberland Arms on Wednesday 30th October for their first Newcastle headline show, accompanied by Team Picture and Mausoleums!
⭐️Advance tickets are available now on WeGotTickets for just £5: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/479648 ⭐️
The performing name of songwriter, musician and producer Holly Readman, Straight Girl (formerly known as N /\ L /\) has already amazed Endless Window crowds with dynamic and exhilarating shows with the likes of Nano Kino, Behold A Pale Horse and Ceiling Demons. Touring the UK in support of their latest single ‘UGLY’ (released Friday 13th September), Straight Girl’s sound is a mixture of industrial aggression, house ecstatics and forward-thinking pop delights. An unmissable live show from a musician set to do brilliant things: make sure you were there to see it at the start!
Last seen in the region in the roomier digs of The Sage Gateshead with A Festival, A Parade and Okay Champ, Leeds act Team Picture now bring their ambitious, out-sized art-pop to the cosier environment of our Ouseburn home. As on last year’s mini-album Recital, they collide retro-futurist synth-pop with David Byrne moves to conjure up slick, subtly sinister earworms that demand a permanent place in your heart. Renowned for their live show, don’t miss this intimate show for this rising band.
A key cog in the armoury of our friends over at Kaneda Records, Mausoleums have already staked a place within the scene for their intense goth-rave dramatics. Now expanded to a three piece with Christopher Maltby (Badger, Tiny Mind) joining founding duo Elliott Reeves (Holy Braille) and Simeon Soden (Ako, Badger), their latest single Rapture of the Beast is the sound of them hitting that hallowed ground of Black Celebration-era Depeche Mode. Well, it is almost Halloween, after all…
