BAND competition fever hits the local music scene this week, with the first of four heats of the Red Stripe Cambridge Band Competition today (Wednesday) at The Junction, Cambridge.
Each heat, four bands battle it out to reach the grand final on April 4. Previous winners include Ezio, Alex Harris and New World Record.
The opening heat is the heavier of the four evenings. Six Ways From Sunday billed as hardcore/emo/rock from Hertfordshire open the evening, followed by Hekz; a heavy rock band from Cambridge. Huntingdon's Kill The DJ are next up with their high-octane punk-rock. What looks like a very loud evening will be concluded by the trashy rock 'n' roll of Anti Social Burn Outs.
Doors, 7pm, tickets £5. Next week's heat features Bomb Factory, Fugazirum, Kyla Bowen-la Grange and Me Against The World.
* TOMORROW (Thursday) is the final of Peterborough's competition. The Unity Band of the Year 2007, held at the Spirit and Soul Bar (formally known as Bar Lisboa, 24 Lisboa Road, Peterborough) features Cambridge indie-kids Free Will and The Bad Influences against two Peterborough bands; Revenue, and The Brackets from St Neots.
