Gig of the week #2

Everyone always wants to be there at the beginning. Well, now you have the chance. Shake off your hangover from the Future Of The Left gig the night before and get yourself down to Barfly for a world first, a silent battle of the bands. This promises to be the most surreal gig of the year.

6 Bands! 2 Stages! No Noise!

On Wednesday 13th August, SilentArena in conjunction with Cardiff Barfly, will present the world’s first Silent Battle of the Bands. 6 bands will literally go head to head with another as they play simultaneously over 2 separate channels which will be transmitted directly to the audience’s ears via our wireless headphones. You will have the choice of which band you listen to as you can freely flick between the two channels. The band bouts on the night are:

The Blims -vs- The Muscle Club
Kutosis -vs- Jamie & the Lionhearts
Along Came Man -vs- Audiocalm

This should be a wildly entertaining evening, in a sweeping generalisation kind of way we have poppy indie v slightly more arty indie, brash punk v lilting americana-ish folk and melodic hardcore v tune driven rock. Honestly, just go listen to them on myspace or turn up at the gig knowing fuck all about them and fiddle with your headphones for a bit. I’m quite looking forward to listening to one band while watching the other. There is a Silent Disco afterwards too, you may’ve read about these on this site before, if you haven’t, go here.

£7 (adv) £9 (door). Tickets available at Barfly Box office. Doors 7.30pm.
