How would you like to win an evening of free, live musical entertainment? Well, lucky you, because you have just won that very bundle!!!
At The Crown and Treaty pub on Oxford Road, Uxbridge, this Bank Holiday Sunday (May 24) there will be a band battle whose ingredients are the crème de la crème of local talent and they are eager to sweat it out to win the £200 prize and perhaps a few fans as well.
The lineup is more varied than a box of chocolates and just like a box of chocolates I have provided an 'inlay card' to tell you what's on offer. (Please don't eat the bands though!)
Here's how the evening will span out if all goes to plan:
6pm - Rame Dalton Rap fans will enjoy the witty and sometimes emotional rhymes of this creative young lyricist. Rame's legions of loyal local lads and ladies know his work so well they even join along.
6:50pm - Bird Brain MafiaAged between 18 and 20 years old Bird Brain Mafia are the youngest on the bill and offer the listener some fine riff based grungey punk.
7:40pm - Death RemainsTight guitar harmony riffage and screamo vocals are Death Remains. Euphoric choruses break into new realms of organised chaos. Very entertaining to watch.
8:30pm - Band Of KingSoul, rap, rock and funk are all in front man Andrew King's weaponry. A great entertainer who knows how to involve an audience and make them feel part of the show.
9:20pm - DeVience (pictured) - Imagine The Darkness meets Queen via Guns and Roses and you'll get an insight into the flamboyance and talents of DeVIence. Not always at full volume as they've some interesting quieter tunes. They've played at the Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood and now the world famous Crown and Treaty awaits. Singer Gio has a range and a half on him I tell ya.
10:10pm - MotoraxWith more metal than Car Spares this band of rockers scorch their way nicely through their set and each amp goes to eleven. Power chord punk with a thrash metal edge.
11pm - SenpaiHard rocking metal punks Senpai hail from Ruislip and Watford and are looking forward to their first Treaty gig. Bring it on.
11:50 - Paper SunLocal to West London three piece Paper Sun have some indie, punk on offer reminiscent of the early eighties goth scene in parts. Phaser guitars and attitudinal sneering vocals. They truly are the genuine article. www.soundclound.com/papersun
The bar staff are the judges and whosoever has the greater ability to distract them from their work wins the money. In the event of a tie my own vote will be the decider.
