Naturally enough, when an ATL playlist comes to life, we get a bit excited. And that seems to be what's in store tonight at The Menagerie with four of our favourite new bands taking to the stage, four pretty different sounding acts at that. Like a music pick n' mix at the cinema, but not as expensive because....the bands are really light.

Anyway.....FutureScope, Parachutes Over Paris, City of Stars and Go Wolf - (left to right) epic, riffy, cute and quirky. It's loosely billed as a celebration of indie-electronica, so expect lots of poppy synths in amongst those guitars. In a nutshell though, we play these bands loads and thus think they're great. Oh, and there's what seems to be an 8-bit connoisseur called Casion on the bill. He's new to us, but a wildcard is always fun.

Niall from Futurescope puts things into perspective:

'Basically half hour sets from every act showcasing the top songs. BBQ first, then each band will be playing with a full band set up! 'We will be playing a sneaky cover of Arctic Monkeys too which should be good.'

*********************************

Futurescope, Parachutes over Paris, City of Stars, Go Wolf, Casion and DJ Ryan Dornan play The Menagerie, Belfast this tonight from 8pm.
