Join the house nation

SUNDERLAND isn’t exactly synonymous with house music, but scratch the surface and there’s a shed-load of work being done to bring a variety of sounds to the city.

Take Housebound, a regular night staged by local resident DJs at Bar 1 on Tunstall Road. I went along on Saturday night to see what the craic was and I was impressed.

The venue’s had a makeover with the DJ box and improved sound system greeting you with a bang as you enter the front door.

The next night’s set to take advantage of Bar 1’s faux-grassed terrace with an all-day session from 1.30pm on April 8 until the wee small hours of the morning.

Highlights will include a headline set from Ibiza DJ Ian Blevins, from Horden, and a barbecue.
