Party for Barney - 12th April update

A few people including bands have asked what happening with Party for Barney with the Corona Virus Situation at the moment we can’t say for definite until we receive advice off The Georgian Theatre we will give a update in a couple of weeks if not before - 

this is the latest information
At this point in time, all public events taking place within The Georgian Theatre and Green Dragon Studios (including The Green Room) are continuing to take place - except in cases where artists choose to cancel or re-arrange gigs themselves; in which case we'd let you know...

The advice from the Government to date is leaving small social enterprises like us exposed to all manner of unnecessary legal and financial challenges. By enforcing a blanket closure, a lot of those challenges would be taken out of our hands. We hope that the advice to date improves and starts to protect small organisations and businesses; as much as it currently protects the large commercial institutions.

We will be putting in extra measures to make sure that our spaces are super-duper clean (they already are thanks to our cleaning staff) - and we hope that local people will continue to support us and all of the other small businesses in and around Teesside who have no choice other than to keep our doors open in order to get through this extremely serious health crisis.

Please keep checking here or on our social media channels for up to date information.

Sound It Out Records 21st March

Regrettably due to the current Corona Virus Crisis we have had to cancel our vinyl record release at Sound it out Records Stockton

Butlins - Review Minehead The Great Alternative Festival

Snide Remarks are now almost ready to take to the introducing stage, the crowd has thinned a bit and maybe being that it is 7pm the call for food has gotten the better of most. 

Having had a very long journey down from the Middlesbrough area the night before and a stomach bug, this however didn’t dampen any of the enthusiasm  and need to entertain the crowd, lead singer Barry Walker as always straight into his deliverance of their 70’s style punk rock songs with a modern feel, energy is one thing that is not lacking with all the band, a really heavy full on Bass line, drumming that falls into the category of almost animal proportions this set against the wonderfully technical lead guitar makes for a tight sound, songs that you can dance to, songs like “Apologies” that you can bounce to and songs like “Millionaire” and “Dead Pop Stars” that just scream punk rock, all in all the crowd warmed to and enjoyed every minute of the crowd prowling front mans sweaty all energy performance.

Tonight’s main stages see the first clashes of the weekend. Choices to be made. Glen Matlock/Jeramiah Ferrari, The Adicts/The Undertones, The Members/Hung Like Hanratty. We understand why it’s necessary but that doesn’t make it any easier.  Deciding to try and see half a set by everyone, a plan that quickly goes tits up, we start with Glen Matlock and Earl Slick.
