Savour Your Scene Fest

 

Northern Irish independent metal/hardcore label, Savour Your Scene are having their first ever mini fest this Saturday at the Warzone Collective, Belfast.

Being a one stop shop for "punk & crust fans, hardcore kids, those into their thrash and metal and those simply wanting to indulge in some loud music", it was a simple choice for this week's 'Gig of the Week'.

We spoke to Savour Your Scene founder and Gacy Threads drummer, Stephen Currie about the day festival this Saturday:

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

"I wanted to not only highlight the talent Belfast currently has, but also bring bands from the south giving them exposure in this growing Belfast scene. We've 7 bands on the bill (4 from the North, 3 from the South)."

"Picking the bill was pretty easy, most of the bands are on the label and we have worked closely to help release their music. Hornets are making an appearance as personally I'm just a straight up huge fan, and Pigs As People I chose as I like to give new bands an opportunity to network and get gig contacts to get them off the ground and outside of their comfort zone. Basically since forming the label I've always wanted to get all the bands on the one bill, sadly By Any Means can't join us for this one... maybe next time!"

"Also Saturday's a celebration! Paul (Lantern for a Gale) is having his stagg at it, so congratulation to him and his lovely wife to be, and it's a leaving party, as Ryan (Gacys Threads) is playing is last show with the band to pursue his personal projects. All in all, it's going to be mental craic!"

Gacy Threads, Ilenkus, Lantern for a Gale, Three Hour Ceasefire, Hornets, Milestones and Pigs As People all play the Savour Your Scene Fest #1 at the Warzone Collective, Belfast this Saturday the 24th of November.
