As part of our Independent Venue Week celebrations, we bring you an extra special Visions event featuring some of the finest up and coming acts in the Teesside area.
Mt Misery - Sharing stages with the likes of Johnny Marr, Paul Smith, Bill Ryder Jones, Plastic Mermaids, Micah Erenberg and Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab, Mt. Misery’s endearing vocals and shimmering guitars made them a must-see act at some of the region's finest festivals, including: This Is Tomorrow, Tipping Point Live, Twisterella, Heelapalooza and Songs From Northern Britain, to name but a few.
With influences including Chris Cohen, Real Estate, Nap Eyes, Andy Shauf, Neil Young, Teenage Fanclub and Big Star, Mt. Misery’s music is imbued with wistful melodies and sepia-tinted charm.
With two self-recorded, self-released EPs under their belts, Mt. Misery have already received airplay from Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6 Music and extensive support from the regional BBC Introducing team, who tipped their hats with two ‘Track of the Week‘ accolades and multiple live sessions.

'For those at the back, this is a band who are basically anti-establishment to the point of anarchy but with a canny knack for simplifying what we are all thinking into savvy-as-fuck soundbites.' - God Is In The TV
Wax Heart Sodality - Masked music makers who claim to be part of some kind of secret society.
'Between the gothic rock tension of The Sisters of Mercy, the post-punk murkiness of Bauhaus, and the raw grit of Danzig, Wax Heart Sodality's sound surfaces old fashioned, yet crisp, and certainly full of promise.' - Destroy/Exist
