Live performance
Competition (2021), 20'

28th May, 20:00 BST

Touching and troubadour-ish, Newcastle-based Competition presents a brand new live set featuring unreleased material and music from 2019's 'Repetitive Music' (Slip).

Craig Pollard (aka Competition) is a quietly pivotal figure in Newcastle’s musical underground, curating events and operating across the city’s artist-led communities. As Competition, he makes (mild) pop music with a sampler and voice. The songs think about smallness and vulnerability, and build hooks from within their own limited means.
