21:30 - DAMIEN A PASSMORE & THE LOVEABLE FRAUDSTERS
Some call us CowPunk. Some call us Garage Country. The bizarre result of a one-night-stand between the Darkness and the Eagles. Country music with it's tongue well into its cheek and everything turned way up. 
 
Bringing together the least likely country musicians in town, DAP & the Loveable Fraudsters fuse hilarious lyrics, brilliant musicianship, awesome vocals (if I do say so myself) and a whole bunch of energy into the loudest, laughingest country rock you'll hear in a long time.

22:30 - PEERLESS PIRATES

Peerless Pirates hail from middle England – the pastures of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire serving as their stamping ground.

Their sound is a rollicking, roustabout mix of classic 80s energetic indie, sea shanties, rockabilly, surf-rock and spaghetti western soundtracks. “Rum-soaked fun” is a phrase often – and justifiably – bandied about. If you’ve forgotten the time when indie sounded fun, here’s your chance to get re-acquainted.
