MAY

Heat 2.

Gecho:

A concoction of “epic” musical backgrounds and interests, Gecho’s sound is a fluid integration of genres that moves in and out of familiarity and jarring uniqueness.

Marsha:

Four band members. Post-punk music inspired by the likes of Interpol, Yukon Era, Deer Hunter, The Strokes, etc.

The Beauchamps:

With roots in Rock’n’Roll, The Beauchamps mix new ideas with old-school sounds, power chords and vocal harmonies. They bring fresh tunes with a no-nonsense rock flavour.

JUNE

Heat 4.

TEAM:

TEAM is essentially a four-piece slash-and-dash indie-soul roq pup mess show... akin to a Wasgij on a stage. Moderately in existence. Huh? Exactly.

Too Woke For Toast:

Perversely pretentious, high-tech low-life hipsters, crippled by depression and daddy problems, Too Woke For Toast are Generation Z's answer to the question nobody thought to ask, "What if avocado toast was a band?" The answer, it turns out, is taxpayer funded, synth-heavy pop-rock generously lathered over a deliciously crunchy base of social anxiety, broken dreams, and empty bank accounts.

Happy to Help:

Funk, reggae, punk, blues but mostly funk. 

Mon Musta:

Dub + Techno - 2 songs, 2 genres, 2 members.

Cake and Eat It:

We are a 5-piece band that love to mess around combining rock, pop, indie, surf and come out with banging tunes on the other side. One More; What?; Run; In Trouble. That's right, you should be confused, these are our song names. So when someone says what? One More? who knows if we'll all play the right song (we haven't gotten it wrong yet!)
