Avosetta + Darwin & The Dinosaur + Fiorentina + Southpaw
Norwich Arts Centre
Friday 18th June 2010
Dominators of Norwich’s alternative scene and finalists of the Evo Music Rooms competition aired on Channel 4; Avosetta have been on the up since their formation. The multitalented quintet, influenced by Alexisonfire, Thrice and Finch, are known for their technical performances: energetic and enthused.
With this being the only Norwich performance for some time, this show is your chance to catch Avosetta before the next 12 months sees them launch into Nationwide popularity.
Darwin & The Dinosaur
After a lively headline performance at February’s sold out New Music Showcase, Darwin & The Dinosaur return to the Norwich Arts Centre.
Recently recording tracks at Leeders Farm, where the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Frank Turner and KT Tunstall have all recorded, the more-pop-than-punk trio were finalists in the Next Big Thing competition, as well as having played a whole host of out of town shows including 93 Feet East in London.
Catchy, well-written songs and an all-round charm has aided in making Darwin & The Dinosaur a popular name in the Norwich music scene.
After a sea of positive reviews, press and gaining loyal fans across the UK, Fiorentina return to the stage where they made their hometown debut.
With a sound influenced by the likes of Death Cab For Cutie, Brand New and Jimmy Eat World, the Fiorentina four have worked hard since their arrival and have been rewarded with UK-wide Radio plays, shows in Southampton, Lincoln, Southend and beyond, interviews and articles.
Recording a single at Leeders Farm, which is to be available for free in the Summer, and organising yet more shows across the UK, this is your opportunity to catch a rare glimpse of the band in their hometown.
Splitting after 3 albums worth of critically accliamed material, MTV2 soundtracks, Emo Diaries inclusion and Metal Hammer sponsered UK tours Sothpaw have reformed.
The blueprint of writing real songs with strong melodies, drive and depth is still there, the love of mid 90’s melodic hardcore is still there, the same old chords, the same old faces, its evolved but it’s not a revolution, sometimes that’s not a bad thing…
” ..might just be the best emo band in the UK…a quality level that puts them on a par with The Get Up Kids” (KKKK) KERRANG!
