Have you ever noticed the listings board of your local music venues empty during the month of May? A severe absence of touring bands and artists taking to the stage as they prepare for the summer festival season?

Well this time, you shall have no fear, May is set to be jam packed in the region this year.

On of the erfromances that’s definitely worth a mention is  Scottish mellow-pop band Belle and Sebastian (of which none of the members are or ever have been called Belle or Sebastian) will swoon onto centre stage as they bring their UK tour to a halt at Newcastle’s City Hall on May 16. With a presumed splattering of classics and newbies (much like the audience) the performance will top every concert you’ve ever been to in May.

Promoting the release of their newest album Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance, Belle and Sebastian will produce exactly what you want: A warm chilled evening that could be complimented just as well by coffee as a glass of Pinot.

Belle and Sebastian at Newcastle City Hall, May 16.
