Super Sunday's Dilemma

Sunday has more goodies on offer than you're ever likely to find under any Christmas tree.
Impossible to mention them all - they're listed above - and to even select one is to do an injustice to the others (I have, I hasten to add, no vested interest in any of the gigs) so, when I say I'm looking forward to the Hoochie Coochie gig by the House of the Black Gardenia it's simply because I just love this band and the atmosphere they create which is truly amazing. However, if the BGs weren't in town, I'd be down the road to Bishop Auckland to catch Steve Waterman with Durham Alumni Big Band. 
Fortunately, because of the advertised 18:00 HCT any athletic/fast-walking/motorised fan may well be able to catch at least one gig either side of the Hoochie Hoot.
