Hot band line-up
Last updated at 14:59, Thursday, 12 April 2012
THE Derby will be welcoming some of the North West’s hottest up-and-coming rock bands to Barrow next week.
Liverpool-based math pop outfit Ninetails headline a six-band Dingo Barracks show at the Dalton Road venue next Friday, April 20.
In just under 18 months, the four-piece have made waves on the national alternative scene, selling out of their debut EP in a fortnight and winning support slots with the likes of Vessels and Three Trapped Tigers.
Last month they were nominated for the first-ever Liverpool GIT Awards, celebrating the best Merseyside acts from the past year, making the shortlist of 12 from more than 380 entries.
Looking ahead to their first appearance in Barrow, bassist Philip Morris says: “We’re always grateful for the opportunity to play outside of Liverpool.
“We know most bands don’t get as far as Barrow, so hopefully our set will live long in the memory.”
Also heading up the M6 will be Manchester bands Trojan Horse and Cyril Snear.
The former played a well-received set at The Derby last August, and return armed with a sonic assault of metal, funk, and samples, loosely labelled as prog rock.
Cyril Snear are regular visitors to South Cumbria, picking up fans with their experimental take on indie rock, and gaining plaudits from the likes of BBC6 Music along the way.
The best of the local scene is also well represented, with atmospheric indie outfit Sootytern playing material from their recently-released Ornithological Physics EP. Ulverston alt-rockers Stellar Caprice are also on the line-up and instrumental math rock duo Cassie will kick things off.
The show starts around 7.30pm and entry is payable on the door.
