Welcome to independentsunderland.com, the on-line home of Sunderland's only venue-disco-drinking den.We're a little different to the majority of Sunderland's night life, but that's a good thing we think, we hope you agree!We book bands and DJs to come perform here, as well as hosting occasional art exhibitions, indoor craft markets and other one-off events and you'll find us open every Friday and Saturday for club nights of the non-commercial vein. Our DJs, and the bands and DJs who perform here play everything from Nu-Jazz to Rock'nRoll, from Acid House to D&B, but we tend to shy away from generic pop music, there's plenty of sites in Sunderland who already cater for that. We love creative people, and the ideas and thoughts that creative people have so if you're one of these and have an idea for an event, or just a thought, please get in touch. We'd LOVE to hear from you.
