Friday Rocks!

See here every week for the latest news from the home of the Herd at the Rock of the North, with lights & smoke & Rock'n'Roll.

The Rock Club convenes in Houghton Comrades Club, the full address is: Houghton Comrades, Pear Tree Place Houghton Le Spring DH4 4AT. The clubs phone number is 0191 584 1123, the Rock Club can be contacted via the usual email address here.

First off, apologies to Big Ted who I hear did an excellent job last Friday night when this reviewer and the Punter were otherwise engaged in helping the Great White Buffalo get set up for his wedding on the day after. So no review and no photos :-(
However, we WERE down at the club earlier in the week and came away with the great news that the club had signed a new contract with the brewery and the beer prices were coming DOWN. 20p off the lagers and cider, more reductions on some of the draught beers. Permanently. Also, the from now on, there will be a cap on the cover charge so the MAXIMUM door charge will be £3.00. We really appreciate the club's committment to our Rock nights and their continued support for what is regarded among the bands who play here as one of the best venues anywhere in the North East.

Next Show:

Friday 1st August
The Mudsharks
The Mudsharks first played for us a couple of years ago on the recommendation of a couple of the Herd who'd seen them elsewhere. Seldom playing this far south of the river, they were an immediate hit with the Herd who loved their heavier side of Rock material and their total commitment to their craft. Expect to hear sogs from Ozzy, Sabbath, UFO, MSG, Guns & Roses, AC/DC and Buckcherry. See them in action playing to us in May 2012 here covering Y&T's 'Rescue Me'.
