Only came across this by accident at the week-end while enjoying at day out at the seaside. Strolling along Tynemouth, heard some really cool sounds coming from the Surf Café which it turned out, was hosting a 12hr, free music event. Walked past a couple of times, but the band who really caught my ear was Newcastle’s Alex Heath & The Ocelot Oroject.. Take a bow guys, because if any promoters are looking in and fancy an Indie Rock/Surf band…...

Checking on Surf Café, I’ve mentioned them a couple of times in the Gig Guide, and they’ve got a strong roster of bands through the year, so worth checking out, even if it is cozy & compact.
