Elixir Bar Gig – 1 April 2015

Woke up in the morning head stuck by the pillow, and we realised the next morning that it was no April’s fool joke at all…it was all in fact true. We won our first ever battle of the bands heat! This is what our Facebook page said the following morning.

We won our first ever band competition last night!! We have never won any battle of the bands competitions before in our 13 years of existence. We must be improving over the years then sloooooowly

We entered the Be Somebody competition and played at a very small bar in Euston, central London. After learning our lesson from the last gig, we had all the amps provided by the promoter, and not only that but this was a free entry gig. So we invited many of our friends, and many of you did indeed come!

The winning set list played on the night was:

  • Monument to all your sins
  • Out of Power
  • Crap Day
  • The Moment
  • Pointless
  • Hypnotised
  • The Score

So many thanks to all those who turned up to support us, plenty of you! And to the promoter for the Be Somebody competition for providing backline and making this a free gig. We were just happy to play again with a great set-up and winning was a real bonus. Round 2 coming up soon 🙂
