I've heard he does it for a packet of pickled onion monster munch and a refresher.

Endorsing that is.

ARC Unsigned Thursday 21st June is proud to present

The Small Screen Light Show

Lovely riffs and unbelievably mature vocals from this band of impossibly young (average age 15) and talented Billingham upstarts. HENRY! from DARTZ! thinks they have what it takes which is good enough for us!

One Night Only

Replaced by King Eskimo

Nine Lives for Sky Dives Woo hoo!


The new kids on the block of the thriving local metal-core scene, these lads know their Raging Engages from their Killswitch Speedhorns and they're not afraid to show it with their chugging riffs and guttural shrieks. A bit like the Deftones at their most agitated, this is the kind of thing that your mam would probably call 'heavy metal' - and she'd probably be right.

Plus DJ duties from Das Wanderlust untul 10.30pm.
Doors 7.30pm
Tickets £4.50 / £5.50 door

Elliott Minor

Plus support from Shibby and Saving Grace

Thursday 12th July
Box Office 01642 525199
Elliot Minor are a five-piece from York whose music is an explosive collision of Rock and Classical. Racing pianos, driving guitars, sweeping violins and crashing cymbals harmonize in a symphony of sound, evoking the stories and emotions of front man, Alex Davies.

The music is daring and unafraid and to draw comparison only pigeonholes the band's unique sound. The songs are arranged around Elliot, the band's piano, and they are rich with minor and dissonant chords, hence the name, Elliot Minor.

Having supported McFly at Newcastle Telewest and recently had a top 40 Hit, this group is most definitely heading for big things so catch them whilst you can.

Serious Discussion Forum / Re:Is burlesque empowering?
« on: May 30, 2007, 03:12:00 pm »
I think it can be empowering. I understand the feminist standpoint of using women as objects, but I actually see it more as women celebrating their own bodies and having fun. Besides, I can't see how it's exploitative if it's something you have chosen to do and enjoy.

To be honest, it's something I would really quite like to try. It would be a good laugh if nothing else.  :)

Well I may be able to help. Would people be interested in a Burlesque dancing /performance course?

Breathtaking, spine-tingling, awesome are three words that have most often been used to describe Mishkin and their live performances. The energy on stage from all five of them is electric.

Big Hand
After their headline extravaganza at ARC FEST II we got the foot stomping, love-fuelled, horn blown, hair-raising, slinky, bouncy, party-popping, groove-tastic zorbic, ska band back for another go. “One of the best live acts in the UK” Music News 2006.

One of Britain’s best-kept secrets, a darkly political post-metal act who deal in emotive soundscapes and melody, where current trends call for ever more brutality and ignorance in underground music.

Doors 7.30pm. 1st band 8pm.
DJ duties by the lovely Das Wandlerust peeps.
10.30pm finish

All these comments and suggestions are really good. Keep em coming folks.


Maybe I'm just old and cynical so ignore me. Just speaking from personal experience.

i could say a damn lot
like one of my ideas for arc this morning was to clear out the bar area and have more people in the point actually listening to the bands
i say this for two reasons
ONE: im sick of having to fight my way through hundereds of people to get a drink
and TWO: i think its horrible that the bands end up playinf to 30 odd kids when theres 200 out in the bar!

also, isnt it a fire hazard or something??
health and saftey usually have something to say about things like that.

i also would like to be in through the proper arc doors like before
it was much better then, and we didnt have to block people trying to cross the street.

i think more advertising would be an idea
i usually see alot of bullitens with things like "i dunno whos playing arc but im going anyway" or "whos actually playing?"

OK, the people sitting in the bar area thing annoys the CRAP outta me. Nothing is more disrespecful to a band than the considerable audience sitting outside the room. But this has always happened. I am convinced some people only come to hang out in the bar. If this is you please tell us why! I can't ask staff to kick em out cos if people want a drink they gotta be able to get to the bar.

Re access through the main doors - there is so much else going on in the building we just can't let people in through box office after a certain point. I've said it before but we can hae a packed theatre audience watching Shakespeare, a tai chi class going on downstairs in the dance studio, and a cinema audience in as well as hundreds for ARC Unsigned. When you take all this into account I hope people can get a better understanding of the operational miracles the staff perform here week in week out.

Re more advertising - yes, the whole point of going to once a month is so we can chuck more resources at each gig.

Re the line ups. I have always tried to put on varied line ups with the occasional themed night. I will try to put on more young local bands with national bands from September and keep it mixed up. It can get a bit desperate when I'm trying to confirm 6 months of fortnightly gigs for print deadlines so again, hopefully this will improve.

We haven't done any questionnaires yet Kingers. It comes down to resources to put them together, get them filled in and then processed. That's why I hoped an online discussion would help. But we might try something in the next few weeks cos this plainly doesn't reach everyone.
