This Saturday 21st November you can catch rock band Eva Plays Dead for £5 on the Lincoln Imp stage. Their newest video release has just featured on http://www.kerrang.com.
No-nonsense hard hitters Eva Plays Dead are a British rock band from Nottingham/Derby, UK. Fronted by boss-lady Tiggy Dockerty and her punk tinged vocals. ‘Eva Plays Dead’ blend big riffs, infectious melodies and raucous energy. They have been referred to as the Midland’s Joan Jett and The Black Hearts but EPD take influence from a vast range including Halestorm, Marmozets, Black Flag, Aerosmith, Queens of the Stoneage, LostAlone and Heaven’s Basement to name a few.
KERRANG! – “Monster riffs & powerful vocals.”
ROCKSOUND – “A hard edged rock ‘n’ roll effort. Returning with a greater focus on whopping riffs and melodies.”
METAL HAMMER: “Putting the backbone in blues, this feisty slab of rock’n’roll does a good Halestorm impression while ramping up the tempo with Tiggy Dee’s smash ‘n’ grab act.”
POWERPLAY MAGAZINE: “There are some ferocious riffs to be had here, served up with a hefty dose of snarling attitude from take no prisoners front woman Tiggy Dee. A punchy and gritty slice of modern rock and roll that’s well worth the time of any discerning lover of rock music.”
PUNKTASTIC: “Huge and packed with dark and venomous riffs. Frontwoman Tiggy Dockerty displays her swaggering vocals, laced with plenty of confidence and gusto.”
PLANETMOSH – “4/5. One of the hottest, hard biting rock quartets.”
THE MUSICAL OUTCAST: – “Blasted out at breakneck speed from start to finish this is another slab of hard rock which is impossible to ignore.”

On Friday evening I attended the newly refurbished gig room at the longest standing home of Live music in Scunthorpe. The Lincoln Imp has always hosted great live music for as long as I can remember but it’s new facelift it is bigger, better and well equipt to put on a show.
I was very impressed initially upon walking into the new gig room, the amount of space and the layout is just brilliant and hardly recognisable to the old gig room. The stage size has been increased and so has the audience’s space with the removal of the old sidebar, which was mostly unused. There is now a brand new bar around the corner from the stage away from the stage view so you don’t have people ordering drinks in your view. If you haven’t been to the Lincoln Imp for a gig since it’s refurb, please do check it out, you will be more than surprised.
This is the first gig I have been to since the refurbishment, although it wasn’t rammed full of people it was still a pleasant evening. I did miss the first support which was Lizzie Goddard but I have seen her a few times and she never disappoints her audience with her stunning voice and strong setlist of songs.
Years Young were the second main support, bringing a more heavy feel with lots of energy to the stage. Years Young are the newly formed band from former vocalist and former bass player from Ameira with two new members Ollie on drums and Danny on guitar. I’d say they have definitely got a bit more of a heavy influence than the more commercial sound they possessed as Ameira but in a way this is good as it means they have come away from what they were doing and are trying something new and finding their band’s sound. The boys have been busy recording at Peak studios and I think you can expect to see a music video very soon to accompany their first release.
Billy Bibby headlined the show, known as a “former member of Catfish & The Bottlemen”. Just himself and his acoustic guitar took to the stage and he performed some of his own songs and some well known covers throughout the hour. He is no doubt a talented guitarist making his electro acoustic sound full and some great vocals to match. He seemed rather reserved and shy on stage but it didn’t affect his performance, it was quite endearing really. You can catch Billy touring around the UK at a venue near you.
