Byline: By Matthew Pardo And Phil Weller,evening Gazette

There's a varied musical diet on offer at Newcastle's two universities again this week, with an explosive appetiser on Sunday at Newcastle University from Welsh heroes Funeral for a Friend

Since scoring their first Top 20 hit with fan favourite Juneau earlier this summer, the five-piece have been enjoying life in the limelight.

Their debut album Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation narrowly missed out on the Top Ten last weekend, and they've just come back from a jaunt around the US with Cave In, From Autumn To Ashes and Every Time I Die.

They've also been hand-picked by Bruce Dickinson to support Iron Maiden on their Dance Of Death tour, which calls into Newcastle Telewest Arena on December 3.

Emo superstars Movielife have recently decided to call it a day, so they won't join FFAF on Sunday night, but London punk-poets Million Dead, Hondo Maclean and Your Code Name Is: Milo will.

There are only a handful of tickets left (pounds 8.50) which you can get by calling 0191 263 5000.

What a year it's been for Antipodean din-makers Jet, who are part of the NME Rock'n'Roll Riot tour arrives on Tuesday at Northumbria University (pounds 8 in). Their recently released debut album garnered decent reviews and their singles have grabbed the rock'n'roll market by the throat. Support comes from The Hiss and many others.

Favourites with rock bible Kerrang, Future Ex Wife - fronted by the front man of one time grindcore peddlers Groop Dogdrill - are making their North-east debut at Newcastle University on Thursday (pounds 5 in).
