MORE ON THE BANDS…

KAV – 10:30pm –
www.kavblaggers.com

Hailing from Leicester & spending most of his time between Los Angeles & London, KAV has found his home in pure song- driven Rock N’ Roll with an electro-under-current.

KAV has been described as many things; ‘A Latterday Jagger’ by the Guardian UK & ‘One in a million artists’ by Kerrang Radio’. Sounding somewhere between Bob Dylan, Primal Scream,Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Rolling Stones Them Crooked Vultures & The Stooges.

KAV has had many supporters over the years from the likes of the late Tony Wilson, to Howard Marks (Mr Nice) who he recently collaborated with his release ‘The Mr Nice EP’, surrounding the release of Howard’s biopic film ‘Mr Nice’.

Working & touring with various musical greats over the past few years, his influences come from far & wide. He has an unrelenting dedication & passion for music.
KAV has not only played guitar for the legendary Happy Mondays, but he helped reform the band with Shaun Ryder in 2004 & co-wrote single Playground Superstar & album Uncle Dysfunktional.

RED N PINK – 9:45pm

With a fusion of, Indie-Punk, Electro-Soul and Hip Hop, the pair have been delighting and exciting crowds across London with their energy-packed live show.

The girls have been presenting the online music show at The Monarch for 2 months now, its about time they took to the stage themselves with their full band.

Check out the video we made for their single ‘Badman’

NME – acts you must hear no4

“Fractures really would be insane not to release their tune ‘Alone’ properly2
NME

MOON VISIONARIES – 8:15pm
www.myspace.com/MOONVISION​ARIES

We love this band, they have some great videos, check out ‘Special is you’

“Moon Visionaries describe themselves as writing, ‘indie-pop-walking-down-th​e-street-rock kind of songs’. This kind of sans-bullshit attitude is precisely what makes us smile about them. It’s the kind of unashamed, feel-good, glossy groove-pop that scores of ‘defiantly lo-fi’ bands probably wish they could muster, rather than having to hide their lack of choruses in lathering fuzz.”
NME

SOLDIER – 9:45pm
www.soundcloud.com/soldier

Birmingham band Soldier hit the Roots stage on the main support slot. No other London dates planned so don’t miss your chance to see them live.

“Soldier sound a bit like Supergrass and they’ve got really hooky tunes. The singer’s voice is something else and he’s pretty ballsy. I love his name too. He calls himself Scott Balboa, after Rocky. How cool is that?”
Lee Newell from Brother on his favourite new act – NME

HOWLIN’ CIRCUS – 9pm
www.facebook.com/howlincir​cus

We’ve been chasing this band for a while now and have finally got them onto the Roots stage!

“Conjuring images of cattle ranching in the Summer, Howlin’ Circus combine raucous guitars with melodic vocals, tales of trepidation and unexpected harmonies…
it is in this era of instant gratification that the band, inspired by generations of emotion and energy, is bound to leave a lasting impression on the heart.”

THE 335 – 8:15pm

Rock n Roll legendary London 3 piece THE 335 open the show so get down early.

‘This is Raw Rock n Roll at its most organic level’

“The 335 are great!”
Alan McGee (Creation records and Oasis legend)
