Ted Leo and The Pharmacists will be playing at The Star & Shadow Cinema in Newcastle (on Stepney Bank). - a much smaller venue than those on the rest of their UK tour. The band cancelled a date at The Cluny on their last tour 2 years ago at the very last minute as their driver was taken serious ill. This night at The Star & Shadow has been arranged at the special request of the band to make up for the earlier cancellation.

The band formed in Washington D.C in 1999. Ted Leo was formerly in mod/pop/dc punk band Chisel. The Pharmacists have previously included members of The Evens, Trans Am and Tsunami, and for this tour welcome back second guitar player James Canty (formerly of The Make Up and Nation of Ulysses, currently of Dischord Records faves French Toast).

The new album "living with the living" has just been released on Touch and Go Records. Their music is essentially punk/indie, but incorporates elements of mod, folk, dub and experimental music.
