In no particular order we have…

SPARKADIA – over from Sydney OZ and playing O2 Wireless the following day, they are a melodically potent, optimistic pop group, and in this day and age, that’s a brave thing to be. ”We didn’t care about what was going on around us”, Alex explains. “We did things to please ourselves artistically and emotionally. If a song doesn’t make you feel, what’s the point?”
Sparkadia will be filthy beggars at 9.15pm

BUTTEFLY BANGS – one of the most exciting tips of 2008… Vivid melodies and two-fisted performances… intense, shape-shifting, timeless and offhandedly confident…a thing of wonder”. Dorset Echo
“The best band I've seen in years” Daily Star
“Beguilingly beautiful melodies…performed with proficiency and swagger…instantly recognisable classics…a precocious song-writing ability”.
'The Insight' Brighton
Butterfly Bangs will be filthy beggars at 9.45pm

THE JUNIOR VICTORS – “Imagine Gary Wilmot wrestling a bear on the top of a Lidl for a rare Faberge Egg that looks strikingly like Jagger”
– This is how the band like to describe their music.
Although a more accurate description would be an
IndiePunkRockRollPowerPop extravaganza. The Junior Victors are truely a joy to behold for anyone who comes across their music God save The Junior Victors!

CITIZENS – Citizens was created in our fair capital less than 6 months ago, fed by a collective appetite for grimy basslines, frenetic beats and angled guitar lines. Brimming with twitchy aggression and trippy soundscapes in equal measure, the band owe much of their sound to their affection for Death From Above 1979, Radiohead, Soulwax & The Strokes to name a few.
Citizens will be filthy beggars at 10.30pm

TALL STORIES – are the song-centric bastard brainchild of North London residents Rob McCabe, Liam Ward and Saul Eisenberg. Since forming early 2007 they have performed variously in several London venues including Hackney squats and Chinese restaurants, mostly to bemused audiences though nowdays they seem to be enjoying themselves better. Their sound could best be described as Lonnie Donnegan skipping bail at The Kinks’ house.
Tall Stories will be filthy beggars promptly at 8pm

See you there!
