Make some Trails to Guildford Boileroom this Christmas
December 06, 2012
FOUR local bands are teaming up for a festive-themed charity gig in Guildford on Friday.
Thank Rock It’s Christmas features punk rock upstarts Drones (who recently featured on Radio One’s punk show), fiery hardcore legends Darko (as part of their UK tour) and reggae masters Tree House Fire (fresh from releasing their debut album).
Also on the bill are power rock quartet Trails, described by Rock Sound magazine as having “found a real comfort in viciously catchy rock songs peppered with frantic staccato riffery and off-kilter rhythms”.
Each act will perform a combination of covers and Christmas classics at the Boileroom in Stoke Fields. They will be in (sometimes bizarre) costume for the show, and fancy dress is welcomed for the audience.
This festive bonanza was extremely popular on its debut in 2011, with the venue close to capacity. Organisers are this year hoping to fill the Boileroom with people who like their Christmas songs played louder and heavier.
The event starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £6 on the door (£5 for students) with all proceeds going to charity Cancer Research UK. For more details, go to www.theboileroom.net or see the Thank Rock It's Christmas page on Facebook.
