It is very possible that the forthcoming Ironworks Easter Showcase could earn the title of loudest showcase event yet!
The Easter Showcase (Saturday 7th April) will feature 8 top quality emerging acts from the Highlands.
With the old school rock riffs of Swamp Radio, the award winning metal of Zombie Militia, the raw intense Messiane and the electro beats of Them & Us, it might get loud! That is before you add in the hip hop electro beats and rhymes of Team Kapowski, the crowd surfing anthemic rock of Last Summer Effect or the catchy folk rock blues of The Frues.
A powerful line up with such loud sound needs someone to ride herd over it and that job is perfect for Ashley Mackay and the Cosmonauts. If previous performances are anything to judge then they are likely to deliver an accomplished set consisting of heartfelt lyrics that echo fragility and realness.
We are so full of beans about this line up that we have produced a special Easter Showcase Podcast that will tease and tug at your £5 entry fee! The podcast features a selection of tracks from acts on the line up and conversations with Messiane, Them & Us and Last Summer Effect. Plus a stop press bonus track and news from a former showcase act!
However don’t just take our word for it. Come along on the night and judge for yourself. Stay and enjoy all the acts. Never fancied hip hop? Give it a try you might just bounce with Team Kapowski? Not a metal head? Too bad because Zombie Militia take no prisoners and Messiane will have you by the balls!*
