Anyone can buy a ticket to see their favourite band, head to a gig and sing along with the live set. In fact, everyone has. It's ace — but, so is going to your local, seeing a heap of new talent discovering new groups to obsess over. Or, getting blown away by whoever's on stage and asking "what band was that?"
That's the question you'll be asking at the Brightside on June 22. In fact, that question is the whole point of their local music showcase. Dead Wild, What's Left Is Yours, The Watsanames, Down and Out, and Blooom will take to the mic, you'll no doubt love them, and your ears will thank you.
Tickets cost $10 in advance or $12 at the door, and in return, you'll get a whole heap of new faves. Still, like a certain ad campaign says: finding some fresh sounds and supporting new talent from the outset — well, you can't put a price on that.
