5 Bands for £5

The 545 at The Apex on 31st August is a music showcase featuring five of the area’s most exciting up-and-coming bands and musicians.

Tom Lumley is an Indie singer-songwriter from Cambridge. He has performed at popular venues across the UK, supporting the likes of The Hunna, Coasts, The Sherlocks and Airways. His debut EP ‘Dream City’ charted at No.2 in the UK iTunes Rock chart.

Bury St Edmunds’ own Enterlude were one of the stand-out bands in the heats of BurySOUND 2018 and have since gone on to support the rapidly up and coming Bessie Turner. Formed in 2015, this five piece cite The Killers and The Strokes amongst their influences.

Hailing from the dark undergrowth of Haverhill in early 2015, the seeds for Saving Scarlett were sown in a conversational exchange between two strangers over the internet – one with dynamic guitar hooks to play and the other with a host of intense, emotional lyrics to unleash. Dave Johnson and Lisa Francis’ chance online meeting was the start of a formidable and fierce enterprise. The duo are now joined by guitarist Rico Shepherd, drummer Adam Cheverton and bassist Dave Brittain.

Kelodown return to rock The Apex, having made the final of BurySOUND earlier in the year. The group, formed from students at West Suffolk College, are led by vocalist Jasmine Canham and deliver raucous, unrefined rock and roll with punchy riffs and energy by the bucket load.

Golden Bantic are a five piece Indie pop ‘project’ from Cambridgeshire, hotly tipped by BBC Introducing and already playing shows across East Anglia and the capital.

The 545 is at The Apex on Friday 31 August at 7pm. Tickets are £5, ring the box office on 01284 758000 or see the website www.theapex.co.uk for more details, or to book.
