News: Evolution Emerging Line-Up Announced
It’s that time of year again. Come Friday the 1st of June, no plug socket in Ouseburn valley is safe, as the forces of Evolution Emerging descend for an evening of restless musical mastery and perfect warm-up to the Evolution Festival proper.
Joe Frankland, Music & Artist Development Manager at Generator lent us the following phrases: “For over three years now, Evolution Emerging has been the highlight of our gig calendar. It’s great to see the North East music scene coming together for such a big event.”
Announced on the very same day we all had our pants pulled down in the budget, it’ll delight you all to hear that all of the Evolution Emerging gigs are free entry. Bands such as Fantasy Rainbow, Young Liar, Bird Island and NWKS, amongst many others, will be playing across stages at The Tanners, The Cumberland Arms, The Cluny 2 and the Star & Shadow Cinema. Lush.
Evolution Emerging is sponsored by our good chums NARC. Magazine and Amazing Radio, as well as being under the careful guidance of Generator. Speaking about the festival, Tom Cotton, head of music at Amazing Radio crooned thusly: “We’re delighted to be the national media partner with Evolution Emerging. Amazing Radio is dedicated to providing new and emerging artists with a platform so their music can reach a wider audience, and there are few live events that do this as well as Evolution Emerging”.
Claire Dupree, editor of NARC. and currently throwing a stapler at me to include a quote from her, is equally as excited to be part of the festival. “We always love getting involved in Evolution Emerging, and identifying the best bands in the North East is what we do best!”
