The Line up!

ONSIND + special guests (Full Band Performance) -
In 2013, ONSIND finally jumped the shark. Following appearances at Glastonbury, Indietracks and the Stadium of Light, ONSIND have won the hearts of thousands, including Billy Bragg, Josie Long and a shirtless Phil Jupitus. With a third successful album under their belts (released on Discount Horse Records) are now a staple of UK Socio-political pop. This NYE, ONSIND will be appearing with an augmented line up featuring Lightbearer's Jospeh Towns, Martha's Naomi Griffin and the excellent Claire Swift + more special guests. Could ONSIND be the best band you've seen all year? Quite possibly.

Colour Me Wednesday (London) -
Stylish indie punk from London! The Uxbridge quartet's sparkling debut "I Thought It Was Morning" was released on Discount Horse this summer. For fans of Swearin', Lemuria, Kate Nash. Not to be missed.

T-Shirt Weather (Durham) -
Intelligent pop punk from Durham not shy of a love song or two and the occasional ABBA cover. Probably have something special planned for the occasion. Released an album on Etxea Records earlier this year. It's class. You'll love em.

Shit's Freaky DJs -
A raucous mix of indie, punk and pop hits care of the champs/chumps behind the regular Shit's Freaky Club Night.

One of the best stocked bars with a DH1 postcode, including "Discount Hops!" the official Discount Horse Real Ale brewed by Durham's very own Hill Island Brewery!
