The Harp Ice Cold Big Gig is getting back to its riffier roots with another three fantastic bands to get your teeth into.
Local legends [url=http://music.theblackbearsaloon.com/]Black Bear Saloon[/url] are the sort of band that make you want to do a flying kick off a bus shelter. The band return to the Big Gig this time taking the top slot after an amazing year that saw them amaze at the Glasgowbury festival and astound with new releases.
The band is cut from formidable cloth with its members coming from a list of previously well respected bands running the length of your arm. Lead singer Aaron Abernethy was also one of the principle architects of the incredibly successful Belfast for Haiti event.
For some time everyone has been talking about the [url=www.myspace.com/thecahiercollection]Cahier Collection[/url]. A four strong vanguard of voracious rock with a live show that has stunned audiences throughout Northern Ireland's best venues, with critics calling them one of the best emerging bands in years.
Opening on the night are one of the most fascinating bands to break through in recent times - [url=www.myspace.com/thevires]The Vires[/url]. The band secured a record deal with local label Audio Ill after beating off major competition in a province wide competition and the band are in the midst of recording their debut album.
