16:30 - THE KEEP CATS

Hailing from Brighton and currently based in Guildford and Reading, The Keep Cats' mix of lo-fi punk attitude and sweet tunes are guaranteed to leave you wanting more.

They began entertaining us with their caffeine-fuelled shows in 2015, following the release of their first single "Tonight", which received its fair share of airtime.  The lads are currently in the studio (their kitchen) recording their next set of tunes and videos, which they will be releasing during spring 2017!"

17:30 - DRAW THE SHADES

Draw The Shades are four clued up kids refusing to play the cool game, doing their own thing; not bothered by what everyone else is saying and thinking. From the moment they take to the stage the crowd feed off their energy, relating to their cutting edge lyrics and joining in with their live favourite ‘Down’. With their sweet vocals and heavy sound they’ll hit you hard and leave you wanting more. Last year they released 2 singles and have been back in the studio recording new material due out in 2017. Picked up by BBC Introducing and Radio6’s “Fresh on the Net”, they’ve come a long way very quickly and are a band you’ll want to catch live.

22:30 - ADAM & ELVIS

Bonded not only by blood but a taste for finding humour in the macabre, Patrick and Tom Malone are brothers whose sibling intuition extends to a penchant for songs as melodic as they are bizarre. Cut-throat guitars, dirty bass lines and contorted synthesisers are their tools as the brothers pen hook-filled numbers with strange, poetic lyrics, often influenced by the stark realism in the wordplay of Patrick’s heroes Leonard Cohen and Charles Bukowski.
