The North East-based band have selected anti-racism education organisation as their chosen charity during their Mapped Out Tour of the UK
Highly acclaimed North East musicians Boy Jumps Ship played their home town gig at the Cluny last night, and Show Racism the Red Card was there to lend support to the band after they announced that they will be promoting the work of the anti-racism charity throughout their current tour.
The band, whose allegiance is split 50/50 between Newcastle United F.C and Sunderland A.F.C, spoke glowingly about the work of the SRtRC campaign before taking to the stage and wowing the crowd with their unique brand of high energy anthems.
The four-piece are currently mid way through their Mapped Out Tour having visited Exeter, Plymouth and now Newcastle, with Liverpool, Norwich, Sheffield and Birmingham still to come.
The headliners were supported by South Shields-based band Wood & Wire, who kicked off the evening with an excellent set and are well worth keeping an eye out for in future. Completing the hattrick of North East bands were Rivals, a three piece rock band fronted by The Futureheads guitarist Ross Millard who has put the group together whilst the rest of The Futureheads enjoy some downtime.
All three bands were excellent and showcased the power of togetherness and cooperation to entertain the crowd which packed the Cluny.
Show Racism the Red Card would like to thank Boy Jumps Ship for their continuing support for the campaign. Thanks to Ian Rendall of Trashed Management, himself a long term supporter of SRtRC and to GeneratorNE for hosting the tour. Shout outs also to Wood & Wire and Rivals.
