The NEVolume magazine is one of those free magazines with gig listings and previews and reviews that you pick up free to read at venues. Its been going for about 5 yrs up here in the North East.
The Editor in chief decided to put his money where his mouth was and invest in a Venue. Timing of course was a disaster, 2 weeks pre Covid crippled his idea but didn’t kill them off.
They have managed to open the bar as a bar and have a music quiz night but this was meant to be a music venue and on Saturday, I will be there to support them as much as the 3 artists. Measures are in place of course, and I wouldn’t be going if I didn’t have faith in him.
The NEVolume Bar is in Stockton and used to be called The Music Lounge.

I’m tempted by Fri 11th Sept’s line-up as in the pre-Covid days (*sigh*) I heard, met and was impressed by local guy Jamie Farrell, so I’d like to catch-up but I’m in the culture-shock of being back at school, so depends when the jitters wear off. (I think, Jamie is sort of in a similar boat….)

Anyway, timing aside, a bold, new venture, deserves a bit support…

Look forward to a thumbnail report then…..  Always good to shout about a new venture.

Beth Macari George Boomsma, Lost State Of Dan
This was actually the 2nd time I have been to this bar, the first time, under previous owners, it looked like an 80s cafe. The decor is better these days.
When you turn up, whilst you are splashing the hand gel on, you are signed in and shown to your table.
You are asked to download an app for drinks, 10 mins but once done your drinks just arrive at your table. It was fairly spacious, with only 25 people in a venue that hopes to have 60/70.
On my previous visit,  State of Dan were supporting then too. Dan is a bit of a Dan Burnett, just him, a keyboard and his own songs. Liked him a lot.
George Boomsma is a young guitarist singer songwriter from Harrogate. Half originals half covers. Brave man to finish with Dylans I shall be released. Too big a song I thought but worthy effort.
Now Beth Macari, she has been pressing all the right media buttons for years. Even appeared on the Billboard chart she says. If Beth wanted to name drop, we would have been there all night. She played to 25 that night but has played to a crowd of 25 K at the Tyneside Festival.
A Great night, I’ve booked two other nights on the back of it.

Ended up buying a few more tickets for the NE Volume bar. He seems to be keeping the price at £5.50 for three acts.
Doing a comedy show tonight, 5 comedians, surely one or two will be on my wavelength.  Followed by a couple of random gigs in the following couple of weeks and then, on the 16th Oct, they have half of The Glass Caves. Indie band from York. Doing acoustic for obvious reasons.

Looks like it might be early doors from Friday John, depending how Teesside follows Newcastle, Sunderland & Durham.  It’ll certainly mean an early start for Tommy next week if Cinelli’s still on.

Just remember, Boris wants no post-gig “Hobnobbing”, though Digestives, Bourbons and Rich Tea appear unaffected.

Although I have tickets for Megan Dotchin, she is on again in Nov and I have bought tickets again even though I have no idea what she sounds like??
The reason is the strength of the supports. Hayley McKay in Oct and Harri Endersby in Nov. All these gigs are £5.50 and have 3 artists on.
I met Harri at an outdoor Xmas Market (she was working a stall looking frozen) and I randomly bought a CD off her. It’s great when you buy on spec and they’re actually very good.
