    A bit short notice but this Sunday is the annual Music Live in Middlesbrough

    http://www.middlesbroughmusiclive.co.uk/

    The gist of the day is live music from 12pm till 10.30pm on 12 stages throughout Middlesbrough Town Centre (all free) with loads of new upcoming bands, as well as a few you may of heard of. This years headliners are Ocean Colour Scene who I have seen live & they are excellent [face_peace]

    Alcohol is permitted at the main stage (the grassy bank outside the Law Court) but no bottles. It's been a really laid back fun atmosphere over the years & hopefully this Sunday will be no exception !!

    Hope to see a few people there :D (I'll be the one surrounded by beer cans =P~)

    "In the past few years we've brought you acts like Keane, Editors, the Ordinary Boys, We Are Scientists, the Darkness, Razorlight, Kasabian and Bloc Party on their way to superstardom.

    2006 is proving to be a fantastic time for new music. This year we've got more great new bands than ever before, and we genuinely believe that this is the best line-up that we've ever assembled. Twelve months from now you'll be amazed at how many of these bands go on to commercial and critical success?and kicking yourself for all the ones you missed!"

    Looks cool :cool: :D
    Wish I could go, but I am in Brummieland ;)
    However, I have seen that getting to Middlesbrough isn't as hard as I thought, so I may give it a go at some point, probs when Leigh is back 'cos she'd probably kick me if I did it before :p

    Well it was quite a good day - despite the rain [face_frustrated]

    Saw some good bands, Morning Runner should go onto bigger things (you heard it hear 1st) and Ocean Colour Scene played a fantastic set :cool:

    and I was called/told I looked like Obi Wan/Ewan no less than 15 times (yes I was counting) and that was without the robes !!

    just remember who your agent is Spike when the work offers come in.

    I will still take my management cut.

    Skindred rocked the hall as usual.

    And a lot of the kids got thrown out pretty much as soon as they came in. The cops were ejecting anyone who looked drunk.
