27.04.2013 Battle Stage Heat 1 - Belter, El Deyma, The Victories, Ninja Baby
Battle Stage heat 1, the first of three "Battle of the Bands" type heats to find a winning artist who would then go on to perform at this year's Brentwood Festival.
Four bands took part - Belter, El Deyma, The Victories and Ninja Baby. All of them obviously were keen to impress the judges as they brought down no-one between them - even the latter two bands who were local which was a bit of a disappointment.
There was also a communication snafu between the sound guy - who said he was bringing guitar amps but didn't - and The Victories, who were the only ones to bring guitar amps. They lent them out to the first band and then packed up very quickly and went home, which I thought was a bit odd for a BOTB, but it meant that there were no amps for the last two acts, so there was a delay of about 90 minutes while I helped scrabble around for some.
It was worth the wait because both Belter and El Deyma each played a fantastic set and both made it through to the June final.

I think I'm meant to do an "About" here but I think you'd be more interested in seeing a random seagull.
