Open Mic and Buskers' Nights
Keeping live music live, and encouraging a canny night out with or without the beers, Simma puts on a few nights a week where you can just chill with some great local musicians, or indeed perform yourself.
Mondays: the acoustic session at the Dun Cow in Sunderland, next to the Empire on High Street West. All welcome, and 8.30 onwards in a fine pub with an excellent selection of ales.
Wednesdays: at Bar 28, the new acoustic night at this award winning venue. Open mic slots are usually available. Contact Simma.firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to play.
Thursdays : watch out for news of a monthly open mic night in Gateshead at the Staiths Cafe bar..admire the wooden staiths and the wading birds and listen to some great music. Sounds good to me. First date 7th May. They do yummy food too.
Saturday : An evening of music in the sublime surroundings of Nancy's Bordello.
Sunday Afternoon at the Central, Gateshead, at the end of the Tyne Bridge. 3pm start, 7pm finish. Lots of time to try out your new material and also excellent Sunday dinners and world beers.
