Serratone (Thursday), Kula Bay (Friday) and The Winachi Tribe (Saturday headliners) are all bands who are tips for the top by their peers and put on great live shows. With over 100 tickets sold for each night, both are hoping for sellouts on the night.
We asked Joe Hill (Vocals/Guitar, Serratone) and the Kula Bay guys who has inspired them and the five essential albums that has contributed to their sound.
Joe Hill / Serratone
Thursday 21st March
w/ The Lotts, Hollow Vandals & Guerilla Skyz
Rage Against The Machine – self titled
Absolute energy. Tom Morello’s riffs and the production is superb.
Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst Nightmare
Turnstile – Non Stop Feeling
A band who I have recently got into. Played this album and it blew me away. Short songs, Huge riffs and loads of energy.
Paolo Nutini – Sunny Side Up
Grown up listening to this album and it always makes me happy. Coming Up Easy is one of my favourite songs of all time.
Metallica – The Black Album
They are a legendary band that made me want to pursue music when I was 10! This album was on non stop along with all their other albums. Had to give a shout to Metallica.
(l-r) Matt, Oli, David & Max
Friday 22nd March
w/ Olly Thornton & The Shirts, La Scala & The Capitals
2 – Mac Demarco
I really like this album because it shows his goofy side yet the music is still mature which shows his capabilities as a songwriter and musician. (Matt)
Catfish and the Bottlemen – The Balcony
It Came at the time when I was moving from college to uni and it made me want to keep music going even though I wasn’t carrying it on as a degree. (Oli)
Speaking In Tongues – The Talking Heads
It’s the first talking heads record I listened to after max told me to give them a go and it’s turned into one of my favourites and the reason I fell in love with the band. (David)
I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It – The 1975
I adore this record from start to finish and everything about it , I think the production is incredible and think the story telling is amazing. (David)
The Age of Adz – Sufjan Stevens
It’s my favourite because when I first heard it I thought it was a jumble of wacko electronica, upon listening to it again I realise it’s incredibly romantic jumble of wacko electronica. (Max)
Doors open 7pm.
