  • He is Legend – October 27th

    He is Legend – Hot US act to hit Newcastle

    Tour cuts through Think Tank on October 27th

    heislegendHe is Legend are touring the UK in support of 4th album ‘Heavy Fruit’

    With a sound best described as rock and roll, the swampy group of bearded gentlemen refuses to be pigeon holed into one subgenre. You can hear the influence of bands likeNirvana and Smashing Pumpkins, despite He Is Legend’s faster and more aggressive writing style. Often writing tunes that keep even the most diehard fan guessing as to what might come next. However, even with all their diversity, there is a stamp on every song that says “this is He Is Legend.”

    You can check them out here

    Support on this tour comes from Cold Summer

    Collectively, Cold Summer are a self proclaimed post hardcore band dynamically challenging perceptions and conventions of what a band playing heavy yet melodic (passionate, but not pretentious) punk/hardcore influenced rock, should sound like.

    You can check Cold Summer out here

    Tickets are priced at just £10 !

    Tickets are on sale now from www.seetickets.com and locally from Reflex Records.

  • Pretty Addicted in Newcastle

    prettyaddicted-liteContinuing our programme at The Globe, we’re thrilled to welcome Pretty Addicted on September 25th.

    Second album ‘It All Stems from Childhood’ has been released recently and is receiving massive plaudits across the spectrum – this will be a tour in support of the album, with the new full live band.

    Pretty Addicted already have a reputation as one of the most exciting live bands in the electro underground and with their new album it looks to tear down all walls.
    Fans of dirty and nasty rock and electro would lap this up.

    The show is at The Globe on Thursday 25th August. Tickets are £6 in advance and £8 on the door.

    But… that’s not all.
    You actually get a total of 3 great bands for your money.

    Also playing :

    Telemark – they are tour support and from Sweden, it’ll be their first time in the UK. They describe themselves as an observation; sequenced, synthesised, acoustic and electrified. They are fronted by Elliot Berlin, whom you may know as keyboardist in Aesthetic Perfection.

    Opening the show, up from Hull, is Systemyk – it’ll be there second time in Newcastle and in the first they made lots of new friends, their merch desk got mobbed. If you missed them the first time, here is your chance to redeem yourself – if you caught them, well, you get another chance again.

    This should be a great show – and 3 excellent bands for £8 (or £6 if you buy in advance) is cool value for money we think, especially for some strong bands.

    Hope we can see you there.


  • Zeitgeist Zero – first Newcastle show in 5 years!

    IMG_2925WebRFTK are pleased to announced we’ll be booking bands into The Globe, on Railway Street, one Thursday per month starting from July 31st.

    We’re stoked that the headliner for our first event will be Zeitgeist Zero - it’ll be their first Newcastle show since 2009, so a rare chance to see them in these parts.

    Zeitgeist Zero produce a sensational mix of precise electronica with elements of guitars, drums and keys intertwining seamlessly around passionate female vocals. This results in a sensational, critically acclaimed stage show that guarantees to draw in the audience with their visual effects and energetic stage presence.

    Entry is £5 (pay on the door or reserve your tickets from our ‘store’) and support acts will be announced soon.

    Til then, here’s a recent video Zeitgeist Zero put out.
