Club Velocity, Rising Sun Arts CentreBy Miss L'Amour
June 09, 2010
The younger Angels put on their finest party gear and raced to last week’s Club Velocity for yet another superb band night.
Tickets for the gig, which took place at the Rising Sun Arts Centre in Silver Street, were just £4 with a flyer and a fiver without. In these credit crunched times, it was an event which was certainly not to be missed.
On the line-up tonight was Crowded South who announced that they were henceforth to be known as Echo-Main.
Rise Above followed, then came a performance by the evening’s headline act, Peers.
Echo-Main featured Luke Ruffler, a former member of Alturo. They took the audience by storm with their songs, I Surrender To The Lake and I’m Not Alone, which were dedicated to the audience.
Once Echo-Main had finished playing it was time for us to get pictures of the other two bands, and then head home.
Club Velocity recently blogged “Peers were it. They’re all only 16, four gigs old and possibly our fave teen band in the world right now.
“Matthew Thompson is flipping great – he is the new Edwyn Collins. We are now huge fans, we will stalk them.
“His band are really cool too, best new band in Berkshire by miles.” That’s praise indeed – and who are we to argue?
Izzy, Megan and Millie said: “Echo-Main’s songs are imaginative and we’ll definitely come and see them again.”
Connor McCune adds: “They were brilliant.”
Echo-Main are playing again on Saturday, June 19, supporting Limpopo Groove at South Streets Arts Centre. Look out for us young Angels there.
