The Mighty Roars
An energetic New Wave Rock band from London, The Mighty Roars are signed to One Little Indian and their single "Elvis Lives" is out on the 18th of May. Having already had a heap of success on air, including airplay on Radio1, Xfm and Radio 6 they are definitely ones to watch. Come and check them out!

Sinner In The Mirror
This four piece London based band love to mix up elements of punk / funk / blues and Ska in with classic rock and really pull it off! Comprising of lush female vocals, skatty guitars, ground-shifting, and syncopated beats - this band is for fans of Skunk Anansie, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Chillies.

This four piece band from London present an interesting mix of indie, alternative & pop. ''An intense, fractious sound that fell neatly out of comparisons. Influenced by the inimitable figures of Jeff Buckley and Nick Cave, Partisan share that rare quality of true originality."

Awkward Arm
Awkward Arm were born out of the recesses of Abbey Road studios in late 2008. They are set to light up the live scene in the capital with their high energy live show and infective brand of hard hitting indie rock grooves. Catch this exciting new band before they explode.

Meaning "Now" in Japanese and is also the name of the artist "Erika Footman". She is multi linguistic native south Londoner with a background punctuated by ballet, open mic nights and chance meetings. IMMa is an orgy of diverse Rock delivered with tremendous self belief, and zeal. IMMa also commands the stage along with her live band, where each band member works their own zone prodigiously, communicating only through their music.

Plus Jpop, Indie & Beats from DJ Daztronik, DJ Rophone & guest DJs until 3am
