Event description

Description

Saturday night is Rock night at the Edgar! We present 3 bands who will fill the evening with energetic and varied Rock sounds….

After closing out last years Festival Funday Hercules Morse return with their groove-based riffs of stoner / desert rock combined with the energy and audacity of classic British rock and the melodic focus of contemporary alternative rock to create something altogether distinct. Mighty riffs are carved over driving bass grooves with lavish guitar licks and catchy vocal lines, creating ferocious sonic beasts immersed in melody. Reviewers frequently laud them as a British hybrid of The Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age. “South-coast four-piece Hercules Morse worship at the twin altars of the riff and the groove, and such devotion has paid off handsomely.” - Rock Sound Magazine

The Painkillers are also well known to Somerset and Festival audiences with a distinctive choice and style of material not generally covered by other bands. All are experienced musicians with founder members Tim Hawley and Mike Osmond having their roots in punk; and now, with Paul Griffin, Steve Pengelly and Mark Wheaton, their musical agenda revolves in and around 1980’s “New Wave”. Think The Who, the Kinks and a touch of Rockabilly through to the Undertones and Vapors by way of T Rex and Slade; with a dash of Kaiser Chiefs, Green Day and the Fratellis and you get the picture! Their set will be LOUD, energetic and anthemic with the occasional surprise twist on a classic!

Alphabet City are a four-piece Indie Rock Band from Birmingham with three original EPs under their belt. They have a unique warm yet edgy sound building on influences including Foals, Two Door Cinema Club and the Vaccines. They have appeared locally on a few occasions including as part of our New Bands Night last year.

Refreshments and nibbles will be available from a pay bar.

Food (Burgers etc) will be available to purchase on the night.

Rock the Edgar! is sponsored by Bancombe Joinery & Trebble Roofing Ltd.
