23rd January 2006
Ripping into 2007 is the all blazing, good time vibe happening at 'Net
Project'. It’s a packed night of distributive music that really
is fresh, off the cuff and altogether far too comfortable. Organised by
'on the ball' smart people, for 'on the ball' party people, you can indulge
in quality beats and band stuff from the likes of Testcard and The Tom
Cartledge Band (left). And in between you get fired up DJ Griffin to keep
you rocking throughout. With madship antics from the likes of compere
Marcus Ascotti (right) and his trusty axe directing you where you should
be listening, it all adds up to a ball of fun.
celebration of the already ignited Net Project gig night was held downstairs
at The Magnet, Hardman Street and it was three quid in. On the non-existent
flier were Thomas Western, The Flicks, Tom Cartledge Band and the already
mentioned Testcard. All artists hail from ‘Lively pool’ city
and between the lot of them they mustered up a rippling party.
Testcard’s music is high tech laptops, mixing desks and after initial
instrumental intro it all comes together with sleek live vocals. They're
a trio producing fresh electro house, breaking on waves of resonant rave.
Band in flavour, The Tom Cartledge Band makes a structured sound of aspiring
rock. All five members are in their final year of a music degree and at
bubbling point in their career are sure to be in the mainstream arena
soon. More than one hundred guests piled in to bump and groove to this
grand eclectic bash.
The boys behind the event choose to roll their vibe around the city and
The Net Project will change venue for next month. Their promotion of the
funky event is done by utilising word of mouth and such internet engines
as facebook.com, so keep your ear to the Nerve grapevine for further contact
Next event is in February 2007.
