Live Review // Skarlett Riot – “We Are The Brave” Launch

wpid-20150213_215250.jpgA bit of a busy night last Friday first stop was Plowright and then a hop, skip & jump to The Lincoln Imp to make it in time for local rising rock stars Skarlett Riot to take to the stage.

Upon my arrival the audience were spilling out the double doors into the corridor just because of the shear volume of fans local and out of town. Skarlett Riot rarely play the Scunthorpe gig scene and if they do then you will usually find them at The Lincoln Imp, why? well probably because it has a great light & sound set up and it’s a good place to have a mosh.

As usual the band managed to gather a crowd right up to the barriers, with lots of enthusiastic head banging and jumping about.The band powered through tracks new and old, with fan classics like Tear Me down and Rock and Roll queen along with obviously the new EP tracks.

There’s not really much need to talk about their music as you can listen for yourself but this band really has the full package from the style, vocals, melodic anthems right down to the almost theatrical Alt rock performance they put on for their fans. The female Skarlett’s range is impressive and powerful, backed up by the boys to compliment the sound and push it that bit further. Skarlett Riot still remain to be one of the best local live band performances I have witness and believe me I have witnessed quite a lot.

The energy and atmosphere they stir up in a room leads to a great gig experience even for someone that maybe wouldn’t usually listen to alternative music.Their tunes are infectious and stay with you even after you have left with your ears ringing and sweat dripping down your forehead.

Skarlett Riots new EP and merch is now available via Itunes & amazon!

untitled Check out their latest video release on Youtube. The band regularly get airplay on BBC Introducing/Kerrang radio and video play requested on Scuzz TV. Kerrang has also just rated and reviewed their new EP so check that out.

EVENT// AMEIRA THE FINAL FAREWELL

JOIN THE EVENT ON FACEBOOK HERE

Welcome to the press release for our ONLY event this year. Who knows when we will do one again. We have hosted ONE OFF events before but since the live music scene kick started we have been behind the scenes helping other people promote their events and music.

It’s now time for our Annual appearance. This will be a limited capacity event. We are pleased to announce the event will be held at Cafe INDIEpendent, a place to enjoy music in the town centre with a real community feel and great gig atmosphere down in the basement. This will be an intimate gig, with plenty of energy. Music to jump around to.

Please join us to celebrate us nearing almost two years up and running as your local non profit community organisation Scunthorpe Nights.

This is will be a NO TICKET event, so it’s payment on the door only! Show up early to avoid the risk of not getting in. Once capacity is full, it’s full. £3 ON THE DOOR. So that’s Three bands for £3!!

The event will be open to ages 16+ 

As the name #AlterEgo suggests, it will be primarily alternative bands. Not heavy metal but a little more rocky. If you haven’t heard of the bands in the line up it is recommended you check them out as you never know they might turn you into an alt rock lover.

Our main headline is pretty special to us and their fans. They have had  airplay on BBC Introducing a number of times and also featured as BBC RADIO ONE’S track of the week. Where there track was played prime time for a whole week. They are also special as it was announced of their split due to the lead vocalist and guitarist leaving. So we bring you their FINAL GIG. Please welcome our headline band:

ODD RIVAL

Odd Rival is a Indie Rock band based in London. The band is fronted by brothers Patrick (bass/voices) & Chris Smith (guitar) alongside Alastair Batchelor (drums). They came together early 2014 and are building a solid following with their ferocious and energetic live show.

“Odd Rival- power trio but not only in a metal sense- groovy wah wha licked, imperious Verve like droney sub psych songs and a nice feel with it all…then they explode with a scream and overdriven bass into something hard and yet yielding..early Verve, the harder end of Kasabian, and when they rock out a bit of Mars Volta even Cream. Good band” – Bugbear Promotions

NEW// Our 1st & Only Event This Year

Scunthorpe Nights are teaming up with SMB Management for a gig Collaboration.

Reserve 20th December in your diary as we bring you a gig special.

We have kept behind the scenes for over a year now helping others promote their music and event efforts but as we near two years of offering you free and non profit help, advice, designs and promotion we think it’s about time.

We had a success with Our first ever event as Scunthorpe Nights back in 2013 at The Wortley House Hotel saw our Black & White Party sell out and even got a  full page article published in Inspire Magazine about it. See Photo Gallery

Read more about other previous one off events we have done here.

We like our smaller intimate venues and especially ones built for the purpose of enjoying music. The identity of the event and the line up we have will be released soon. But assuming if you look up SMB Management on Facebook you may guess one band at least. There’s a venue in particular bands keep asking to play in the town centre and as we like to help as much as possible, Here we go 🙂

We will be back over the weekend with more info on this event. #AlterEgo or #SupportYourScene if you can’t find it.
