Ouch my head, but what a fun night! A local student society in my city has a yearly two-day festival with a lot of up-and-coming bands which always has a nice atmosphere. Hearing these bands always makes me wonder what got some bands more fame than others: these guys are often fairly new but can certainly put up a great show.
Two of the bands really got my attention: The Pikey's and A Liquid Landscape. The Pikey's is a more old school rock-band who play, in their own words, "plain old hard rock as it was invented in the 70's". A Liquid Landscape was more of a progressive/experimental rock type of band who, as it turned out when I spoke to the singer, were big fans of Oceansize which was clearly audible in their performance.
Two different genres, but both worth checking out so if you want some new tunes and/or support a new band, check out their myspaces:
