The West End Centre kicks off September with rock gigs galore
Starting this weekend, The West End Centre’s legendary rock gigs return in September with some of the best new bands in the country visiting the venue in Aldershot.
Saturday September 14 sees the Westy and Farnborough’s The Rooms Rehearsal Studios present a massive six-act bill – all for less than £1 per band.
Headlining will be psychedelic blues rockers Vibracore – one of the stars of July’s Summer Westival.
Also on the bill are Kilter, whose female-fronted gothic-pop has been likened to Interpol and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Surrey’s The Sunrise Set will be playing songs from new album Rule Of The Mountain, which is full of epic indie-rock with shades of blues and gospel.
Fleet’s Wolfshead add their self-styled ‘garage doom’ to proceedings, a filthy combination of garage rock and grooving metal riffs delivered with an infectious energy.
Describing themselves as a “wild and original mix of sluzz guitar, twisted with chunky dance beats”, North Camp duo Beautiful Moments will be playing their first ever gig, whilst Ian Turner, frontman of Farnborough’s blues-rock behemoths Welcome The Howling Tones, will be playing an acoustic set in the West End Centre bar from 7pm to get the night started in fine style.
Gerry Bryant, manager of The Rooms, said: “This show is to celebrate our 12th anniversary, and we are planning a few surprises on the night which we are very excited about.”
Tickets for this gig are just £4 in advance, or £6 on the night.
Forthcoming gigs in September include a RoseColoured promotion featuring Dublin blues-rock duo Kid Karate, alongside Yearbook and Echo Park, and on Saturday 28 September, Leeds’ indie-rock trio Sky Larkin with support from Radstewart and TwoThirtyTwo.
