Seamus Edge, from Independent, who is leading the project, said: “Independent has always been at the forefront of the grassroots scene in Sunderland, supporting local artists at the beginnings of their careers, like Frankie & The Heartstrings and The Lake Poets, as well as bringing hundreds of bands to the city, so we see this night as a continuation of that support.”

The events are free of charge, with players only needing to bring their instruments as the venue will supply drums, amps and microphones, as well as a drummer and bass player from The Voluntears. Doors open at 6.30pm.
