Booker T is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, a Grammy lifetime achievement winner and his 1962 single, with the MGs, ‘Green Onions’ won Greatest Single of All Time (popmatters.com). But this makes him sound like he’s past his prime – something which is definitely not the case. His relevance definitely endures today, as proven by his most recent Grammy award for the album Potato Hole, 2010’s best instrumental album.

Born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1944, Booker T. Jones was named after the civil rights leader Booker T. Washington. But unlike Washington whose middle name was Taliaferro, Jones’ middle name is famously just ‘T’. A multi-instrumentalist prodigy, he entered the professional world of music aged just 16 when he played baritone sax on Stax Record’s first hit ‘Cause I Love You. In 1962 he formed Booker T and the MGs, and with his group, who hit the charts in their first year, he recorded the classics Green Onions, Hang Em High, Time is Tight, Melting Pot, and, familiar to all UK cricket fans, Soul Limbo.

The MGs went their separate ways at the end of the 70s (before later reforming) and the 80s saw Booker T strike out on his own. He instantly hit the charts with 1981 single I Want You and successfully turned his hand to producing for artists such as Bill Withers and Willie Nelson. Booker T also lent his keyboard magic to recordings by Neil Young and Ray Charles.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and presented with his Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2007, the last few years have seen some of Booker T’s best work. The critically and popularly acclaimed Potato Hole featured Neil Young, returning a favour, and this year’s The Road to Memphis will include collaborations with some of today’s funkiest artists including the Roots and Sharon Jones.

Now 66, Booker T clearly still has a lot of life in him and his appearance at ARC is something of a coup for the Stockton venue, as this will be Booker's only non-festival UK date this year! Don't miss it.

BROTHER
+ All The Young + Sister Rose
Uncle Alberts in Middlesbrough
Saturday 16th April 2011
7:30pm - £6 advance // £8 on the door - 18+


Confident Slough quartet BROTHER blasted their way into 2011 with a massive bang by adorning the front cover of the first NME of the new year!

Describing themselves as 'grit-pop', they recently kicked off their set at a sold-out show at The Flowerpot in London with the now infamous phrase:

"Are you ready for the future of music? If not, leave now."

Their confidence (arrogance?) is admirable and also justified because their rather brilliant indie guitar sounds are like the best bits of Oasis, The Bluetones, Kasabian and Gaslight Anthem all rolled into one.

The lads have already signed a rather tasty record deal with the legendary Geffen imprint, making them label mates of Guns 'n' Roses, The Cure and Aerosmith to name but a few.

Their debut album "Famous First Words", which was produced by Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths), is released in July and features live favourites including Darling Buds Of May, New Years Day and Still Here.

Fresh from touring with The Streets, massive things are expected of Brother in 2011 so do yourself a favour and believe the hype!

Advance tickets are still available from We Got Tickets and See Tickets for £6, or it'll be £8 on the door.

Ten Feet Tall in association with ARC proudly present:

The Hitchers + Little Pink Polliwog + No School Reunion
Thu 21 Apr, 8pm, £6
ARC, Stockton-on-Tees




Tickets: http://www.arconline.co.uk/detail.php?id=2364

Influenced by the Stray Cats, Eddie Cochran, Descendents and The Cramps, Teesside heroes The Hitchers are back with their first Stockton show for years.

Their awesome and unique sound combines the infectious buzz of punk rock with the fun and style of the 1950s rock 'n' roll years. Rich, Mike and Greg have toured all over the world - including on the world famous Vans Warped Tour in the USA - and have received a plethora of plaudits from the likes of Rock Sound, Kerrang and BBC Radio 1.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to catch one of Teesside's finest ever bands back on home soil.

Support comes from the much loved and recently reunited Little Pink Polliwog and ex-Skeat boys No School Reunion, who'll be celebrating their 10th anniversary with the release of their brand new EP at this show.

Ten Feet Tall in association with ARC proudly present:

Right Said Fred - Night Of The Living Fred
Fri 6 May, 8pm, £15
ARC, Stockton-on-Tees




Tickets: http://www.arconline.co.uk/detail.php?id=2355

There isn't a person on this planet who hasn't heard I'm Too Sexy. Fact! Well, maybe not a fact, but you know what we mean. That single hit the number 1 spot in over thirty countries and picked up an Ivor Novello Award before the likes of Deeply Dippy, Don't Talk Just Kiss, Stick It Out, You're My Mate and Stand Up For The Champions helped the band shift over twenty million records all over the world.

This is not only a unique opportunity to hear Right Said Fred perform a stripped down set of their greatest hits, but also a rare chance to enjoy some frank and honest anecdotes from the brothers Fairbrass.

An unmissable event for fans of the band and music lovers in general.

Hate to take this off topic, but anyone know how you get to play the local stages at MML this year? My band are really up for it. :)

We'll be making an announcement about this in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to hearing lots of great local bands!

It's looking like it'll all be done electronically this time around and involve Soundcloud and Dropbox, but we'll make an announcement once everything is finalised...

This has been the fastest selling show in ARC's history. But, there's still a few tickets left.

If you fancy it, I'd recommend getting on the case ASAP.

Ten Feet Tall in association with ARC proudly present:

An evening with Frank Turner
+ Franz Nicolay and Ben Marwood
Monday 9th May, ARC in Stockton
7:30pm - All Ages - £16


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQMVHhxTtLc

Frank Turner’s meteoric rise to success continues this year with news of two NME award nominations (including for the impressive Best Solo Artist alongside Paul Weller, Florence And The Machine, Laura Marling and Kanye West), festival appearances (including headlining a stage at Download) and a fourth studio album scheduled for release this summer.

The past twelve months has seen Frank reach new dizzying heights of success that has included a support slot for Green Day at the vast Wembley Stadium in June; scooping the prestigious ‘Spirit Of Independence’ Kerrang! Award in August and headlining a sold out Brixton Academy show back in December; as well as spending the year touring extensively not just in the UK, Europe and America but also as far a field as New Zealand, Australia and China.

With the release of his new album and a summer chock full of gigs and festival appearances, 2011 is shaping up very nicely indeed and Frank’s path to total world domination will continue apace.

Support comes from ex-Hold Steady man Franz Nicolay and hotly tipped singer-songwriter Ben Marwood.

Tickets on-sale 9am Monday 28th February from http://www.arconline.co.uk/detail.php?id=2368 // 01642 525 199.
