Following our successful Murder Ballads evening in May, we’re launching ourselves liver first into a special night of songs about alcohol and drunkenness.
While concept albums are a relatively common phenomenon – Frank Sinatra’s In the Wee Small Hours came out in 1955 -Urban & Eastern has been inspired by Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour to apply the principle to live music.
So in honour of Oktoberfest, an all-star cast of North Eastern musicians will watch their lives float away through the bottom of a glass.
Topping off the evening’s talent will be Dirty Diamonds with their Appalachian-influenced banjo and ukulele.
The evening is sponsored by our friends at Wylam Brewery, Allendale Brewery, and at Hepworth & Co Brewers Ltd, so expect lots of wonderful local and organic ales.
Tickets are £5 on the door.
