Post Zero - A New Home & Southsea Fest
So we start here at ‘post zero’ in our new digital home. After spending time where we somewhat ‘digitally sleeping on the Strong Island’s sofa’ over on the Strong Island site we decided to temporarily find ourselves our new home being here. As well as being the launch of our new site It’s also a rather self-indulgent post as today, is in fact, two years to the day we launched at Southsea Fest in the sweatpit cavern that is Bar Fifty-Six. Speaking of Southsea Fest and Bar Fifty-Six, on Saturday we return to both where we host ‘Strong Island Recordings Presents’ with a handful of some of our favourite new acts around. On the label front,Rickyfitts and Gang will be representing Strong Island Recordings on the day in mighty fine form at our stage bringing their heavy doom-grunge whilst the rest of our stage features some of our favourite new bands period with Blessa, Kagoule, Theo Verney, Wyldest, FURS, Eighteen Nightmares At The Lux, Eloise Keating and Looks all playing our stage on Saturday.
Elsewhere on the bill extended label family The Boy I Used to Be play the Wine Vaults for ‘Pie & Vinyl presents’ at 15.00 as well as a second set by Rickyfitts at the same venue at at 15.45.
You can check out our SoundCloud playlist of all the acts playing our stage here and you also purchase Southsea Fest tickets here. Hopefully we’ll see some of you at Southsea Fest where the sweat drips from the walls and the rum & beer flows.
