Twice as mighty

The gig schedule maybe looking a little light this week but the 2 shows that we do have will make up for that. Not only do we have some bands that have shared the stages with huge acts but in the basement we have the daughter of Iron Maiden bassist and founder Steve Harris, Lauren Harris. Not only can she sing but she is smoking hot too!
Tonight in the basement we have 16 young lads hitting the stage and doing what they do best, divide them into groups and you have 4 bands playing some kick ass music.
Formed in July 2008 in Derby with a sound reminiscent of early U2 and have quickly established themselves at the forefront of the East Midlands music scene with a maturity in sound beyond their years.
The melodies are simple and beautiful; the songs rock while remaining delicate and intricate. They are fresh-sounding and timeless; and most importantly, all come packed with hooks that could land a shark. Taking inspiration from a number of influences, spanning various genres, the band creates a unique twist on a modern sound; made-to-fit on any radio station.
Lower Than Atlantis are a Watford, UK based band, started in 2007. They have since released their debut CD ‚ÄėBretton‚Äô¬†via Thirty Days Of Night Records. Their full length, titled ‚ÄėFar Q‚Äô was released in March last year. In April 2011,¬†their 2nd full length ‚ÄúWorld Record‚ÄĚ was released via Wolf At Your Door Records.
Futures are an alternative rock band who formed in 2009. They are based in London, UK. Futures released their debut¬†mini-album ‚ÄúThe Holiday‚ÄĚ on March 3rd 2010 and gave away for free with that's month edition of Rock Sound Magazine.¬†There is now an estimated 20,000 copies around the world contributing to the largest sale of a Rock Sound Magazine¬†issue ever. The band‚Äôs debut mini album plus bonus acoustic tracks is available on ITUNES



Saturday as part of the Hey Hey Hey club night we have Six Hour Sundown. Not only to they have the daughter of a metal legand in the band but they are talented musicians too! They are hard, edgy, morern rock riffs driven by a solid rhythm section and topped off by a vocalist mixes comtemporary melody lines with stong heartfelt vocals.
