PREVIEW: Riverside Film Fundraiser
Newcastle’s much-missed Riverside venue has been the subject of a lot of attention of late. After the publication of Hazel Plater and Carl Taylor’s book last year, the logical step was to move into film, to get into the heart of this legendary venue. Riverside: The True Story Of A Truly Independent Music Venue is currently in production, and funds are being raised for the editing process.
The fundraising gig on Wednesday 29th August at The Cluny in Newcastle is a special one, and has a line-up to help take you down memory lane. Four North East artists that have a history themselves with the venue will perform short sets; there will also be a raffle and special guest DJs.
Perhaps the most exciting appearance will be from Dubstar – their first public appearance in 14 years. They tasted international success with singles Stars, Not So Manic Now and No More Talk, and their last Newcastle performance was at Riverside in 1998 as part of their final UK tour. They’re now reunited and working on new material.
Joining Dubstar is Field Music’s David Brewis, playing a rare solo set; singer/songwriter of much acclaim Kathryn Williams, whose newest venture The Pond is garnering high praise; and quirky Ashington band St James Infirmary.
