Closing the Label Mates festival were bands from Heavenly Recordings. I’d been hoping that Heavenly might bring The Wytches. But instead it turned out to be Toy headlining. A nice conciliation prize.
Opening the afternoon were Kid Wave. A band I was planning on catching towards the end of the month, so pleased I had an earlier opportunity. I was really impressed by this group. Maybe familiarity with their material helped. But I enjoyed their set.
Hotton Tennis Club, a band I saw at the end of February. I quiet liked them then. Tonight was similar. There was enough interesting about them to give them a listen to in future.
A departure for the week was an acoustic set from Eaves. It was pleasant, but nothing more.
Next up were the Voyeurs. I’m not sure if I liked the music. But I did really enjoy their performance. They’re tight, full of energy and by the end of their set they’d won me over.
Closing the evening and the mini festival were Toy. A band I’ve seen a few times. They’re a good band and tonight they put in a fine performance that I think the crowd really appreciated.
