A not-for-profit music promotion organisation is back with a showcase of talent.

Leek's own not-for-profit music promoters The Situation are back on Friday (March 7), with their first Foxlowe Arts Centre show for 2014.

Showcasing some of the finest local acts with a pile-driving line-up of guitar-led indie-rock, and generous doses of garage-psyche-blues thrown in for good measure.

Headliners Moscow are much talked about for their gritty dark garage rock sounds and their startling live stage presence.

The Situation's MC Simon Edwards said: "We are thrilled to have these guys back at The Situation – their performances over the last year have been truly outstanding.

"The band will be playing tracks from their new EP, Pack Animals, which is coming out very soon."

Vellocet are mean exponents of garage-psych-rock 'n' roll and blues with massive grinding guitar sounds and soaring vocals to leave your ears ringing for days.

Simon said of Vellocet: "The band played for us a fortnight ago at The Old Brown Jug in Newcastle, to rapturous applause.

"All Leekensian music lovers owe it to themselves to see this fantastic lineup, on a great stage, through one of the best sound-systems in the area."

Opening act Rebel Attire are building on an impressive start in 2013. This four-piece deliver raw, melodic tunes with confidence and delight.

Doors open for The Situation Presents event at 8.30pm, with the first act onstage at 9pm. Advance tickets are available at £3 from www.wegottickets.com/situationevents or revellers can pay £4 on the door.
