Manchester-based netlabel Flat Hedgehog Records has organised a smart-sounding Guy Fawkes music event at Lancaster's Yorkshire House on 5th November.
Headlining are 19ninetynine, arguably one of the best electronic bands around Lancaster and as a result always draw a large crowd. Also on the bill are Crystalline Theory and ICE, with popular local DJ Andy also on hand, bext known for the local EBM night Darkside.
"ICE are a four-piece pop rock band with beautiful vocals – a really gorgeous sound to hear," enthuses Flat Hedgehog event organiser Claire Bath. "Crystalline Theory are relative newcomers to the scene, combining experimental electronica with talented singing and intriguing lyrics.
"The single band member, Richard Owens, balances his time as a musician with his time as a Theoretical Physics student at Lancaster University."
(Claire tells us Crystalline Theory will also be playing on campus at County Bar on the 3rd
"Our aim for this gig is to just show off the beautiful music that Lancaster has to offer, most of which is experimental and a bit different," she explains. "The music alone would make us stand out from other gigs! However, we've kept the event price very low at £2.50, and we're emphasising the atmosphere and the bonfire night theme with UV lighting, free treacle toffee and even a fake fire lighting effect for the stage!
If the event is a success, Flat Hedgehog hope this will not be the only night of this nature, so get along and support several local bands.
