Sunderland post-punk four-piece The Futureheads are performing a very special acoustic show streamed live from The Sage.
This is a rare opportunity to experience a different side to the band, with the show featuring a mix of acoustic and a cappella song arrangements, intricate four-part vocal harmonies and plenty of audience banter.
You can expect a mixture of selections from their back catalogue including songs from their 2019 album Powers, coupled with older favourites, and some covers and traditional songs thrown in for good measure.
As the band themselves put it:
“We’ve missed being able to play live, we haven’t played a single gig since February, so this is a rare opportunity for us to perform in 2020. The acoustics of Sage One are perfect for the this kind of show and we’re really looking forward to making the most of this, especially with the a cappella songs in the set. The idea behind this show is that it presents a different side of the band, where we get to talk more about the songs, present some alternative arrangements with all of us playing a variety of different instruments on the night. These shows give us more opportunity to have some craic with the audience as well.”Saturday 5th December, 8pm, £9.90. www.sagegateshead.com/whats-on/sage-live-2020-the-futureheads/
