Monsters Rock Vent, Wed 21st Jan L2 Club, Truro - Normally organisers at Vent, Cornwall’s biggest and best known Rock/Metal/Punk night at L2 in Truro, don’t book a night in January...
Like many they take the month off to recoup after a hectic December brings close to a busy year. However, they’re postponing their winter break to bring us the Vent Monsters of Rock! on Wednesday January 21st at L2. A live ‘rockfest’ with four of the Westcountry's most impressive Rock bands to keep everyone going through the dark months.
Whether you’ve been into Rock or Metal for years or recently become interested through the success of bands such as The Darkness or Funeral For a Friend this show will definitely whet your appetite.
Bands include Lungcage (whose album Mega Tsunami out now) are one of Cornwall’s unsung heroes and really put on a show full of character and screaming guitars, Serenity, the most talked about stoner-rock experience of Plymouth, Kamajor have the driven energy of bands such as ‘Queens of the Stoneage’ and ‘Killing Joke’ and who have strong roots in Truro and Hombres Impossible, a very unique band from Devon, help provide a night full of rock debauchery.
After Vent’s busiest year to date which includes four months with two shows per month instead of one, the huge stage at Gig On The Green in front of a 10,000 strong audience, National touring bands such as Vex Red and Number One Son, B Movie Heroes, No Comply, Tuuli, Gash and The Wayriders to name just a few, more home-grown Kernowcore gigs than any other venue in Cornwall, a battle of the bands competition, a fifteen track compilation C.D (on sale now £5) and a Christmas party with ten of Cornwalls top Kernowcore bands playing to celebrate the C.D’s launch (now breath!), no one could blame them for taking a break - but were glad they’re not!
Entrance to Vent at L2 on the 21st is £3 as always. Doors open from 9 - 1am.
The Vent 15 track Kernowcore CDs are available to buy on the night at £5. Proceeds go to CLIC. (campaign against Cancer and Leukemia In Childhood) to be used in projects in Cornwall.
