BIG THANKS to everyone who has supported Get Hip! over the past 5 years. The opening night on Saturday 5th March 2016 at The Music Lounge in Stockton was a top night and a great turn out for the launch party. I even saw Graham Day & The Forefathers in there enjoying the sounds! Since then the night has gone on from strength to strength and we've had some great nights at the club and top bands grace our stage to name but a few - Thee Dagger Debs, The Jack Cades, The Mourning After, The Voo-Dooms, The See No Evils, Nervous Twitch, Thee Girl Fridays, Green Fuzz, The Milk Lizards, The Citadels, The Chessmen, Oilbirds & Thee Strawberry Mynde.
In 2020 & 2021 like everywhere else Get Hip! was affected by the Covid pandemic but we still managed to put on 3 nights in 2020 and 2 nights in 2021. During that time we also kept busy by putting together the Get Hip! compilation LP which features 14 tracks by bands who have played at the club night over the last 5 years. The LP was released by Red Star Recordings in March 2021 just in times for the clubs 5th anniversay (see shop section for more details on the LP).
2021 also saw the club night finally move to The Green Room in Stockton-On-Tees, which should of happened in March 2020 but was put on hold due to the pandemic. All our regulars agree that The Green Room is a much better venue for the club and we hope to be back to our normal 6 nights in 2022.
Our next night is on Saturday 22nd January 2022 and will feature local psych/garage band Thee Strawberry Mynde (see 'Get Hip! dates' section for more info).
