Live at The Star & Shadow Cinema, Newcastle

Artist
Just over two years since my first Allo Darlin' live experience I gleefully return to the same venue for seconds. The gig is sold out (so was the last one from memory), so I can only assume that the band love it here and are sticking with it whilst their popularity will just about allow it. It's hard to blame them really because The Star and Shadow Cinema is a fantastic venue, Newcastle's hidden gem and a true co-operative that relies on volunteers to keep the place going.

Live at The Star & Shadow Cinema, Newcastle

The wonderful Star and Shadow cinema was the venue for Allo Darlin’s triumphant return to Newcastle, hot on the heels of this year’s universally acclaimed record Europe, the venue was bustling. First on the bill though were The Agency who, despite being from the freezing North East, have a laid back sound which wouldn’t be out of place on the sun drenched West Coast of America. And although their slightly off key vocal harmonies would give Brain Wilson nightmares, they do add a particular charm to the downbeat ditties and songs about werewolves. Fans of Galaxie 500 would be in capable hands.
