Battle of the Bands

Fri 19 April @ 7:30 pm

- £5.00

There’s one remaining slot left for a band to play at Somerstock during the Friday night session. So we’re pitting three bands against each other in a Battle of the Bands to take place at the Parish Rooms on Friday 19th April. The winner, chosen by the Somerstock judges and votes received on the night, will open Somerstock 2024, performing first up on the Friday evening (Friday 12th July)

The bands battling it out for the prime slot will be:

Vetna

Vetna are a car crash between different genres and eras, in a comfy, compact format for your own post-modern, liquid entertainment. A music collective founded by Lorenzo Chia and based in Bristol since 2020.

This act proposes a bold experimentation, beginning with alternative rock and post-rock, with an unmistakable 90s and 00s imprint (Radiohead, The Dandy Warhols, The Smashing Pumpkins, Verdena, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, La Femme, just to name a few), and mixing it with a powerful electronic outfit (Four Tet, Boards Of Canada, Crystal Castles, Nicolas Jaar). Everything spiced up with punk attitude and a hot psychedelic vibe.

Absolute Zero

Formed in 2022 with a combined age of just 32, Absolute Zero have been wowing audiences with their youthful energy and awesome ability beyond their years. In 2023 they recorded their first EP, available here to download, or buy on CD. Despite their size it is clear these guys are gonna be BIG – so check them out! ‘Cos nothing is as cool as Absolute Zero!’

Junebug

Junebug is a 5 piece college formed band who play around the Glastonbury area in the spirit of home grown alternative rock. Inspired by bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead and other experimental groups. High energy rhythm section, soaring fuzz tones as well as shimmering and chiming chordal breaks.

 

Doors open at 7pm and the first band will take the stage at 7.30. There will be a 20 minute interval between each band and a fully licenced bar will be available.

 

This is going to be a very popular event so booking is essential.

Ticket price:  £5.00
