Enjoy a night of electro music - and help save the planet

MAKE NOISE ... combines music with recycling.

AN electro-music tour with a difference is calling at a North East venue next week.

The Make Noise Recycling Tour lands at Digital in Newcastle on Wednesday, November 19.

The idea behind it is simple: put on a great night of electronic music and make entry free in exchange for a piece of electrical recycling.

It could be a broken mobile phone, an old TV, a battered kettle – basically anything with a plug or battery.

It’s a cool night, with the aim of promoting the importance of recycling WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) to 18-25 year-olds.

The music, which lasts from 11pm to 3am, comes courtesy of No.1 hitmaker and breakout house act of the year, Secondcity.

Secondcity, real name Rowan Harrington, was born and grew up in Chicago (hence the name) until the age of 12.

The last year has seen him rise from much-hyped electronic newcomer, with releases on Strictly Rhythm and Saints and Sonnets, to a bonafide chart-topper with the No 1 single I Wanna Feel.

Main support comes from Saints and Sonnets labelmate Artifact and local DJ Marc Roberts.

The Heavenly Jukebox will be also traveling up north to complete the line-up.

Make Noise have previously held parties in Brighton, Belfast, Nottingham, Leeds, Glasgow, London, Cardiff, Bristol and Bangor.

Their manifesto remains the same: programming cutting-edge electronic music in some of the country’s best clubs and making entry free in exchange for a small item of broken or unwanted electronics, which is sent for recycling.
