Farnborough Groove fundraiser for Guide Dogs For The Blind

Grateful thanks

Thanks to all involved in helping us make Saturday’s (28th July) fundraiser happen. And thank you to all those who came to watch these magnificent local bands and artists perform. The bands were: The 109s, Fuzzwalker, Down Love, Deadstate, Kilter, The Landings, Sore Teeth, Jindivik, Phoenix Chroi and Kevin Burgess. We raised over £400 for Guide Dogs for the Blind, and here is the charity’s message of appreciation:

Thank you and all the organisers, musicians, those who bought tickets and also those who made donations to raise funds for Guide Dogs for the Blind. Your donations help us to provide guide dogs, mobility and other rehabilitation services for blind and partially-sighted people. We make a commitment for life to guide dogs and their owners and this simply would not be possible without the donations of our generous supporters. We receive no government grants or European funding of any kind and the ability to carry out collections are extremely important to the survival of the charity.

Total raised £432.64.

Thank you very much.

in conjunction with the

Atlantic Fire début album launch

After several years of grafting, developing and touring in their previous guise as Satellite State, they re-launched themselves as Atlantic Fire in 2016. Their debut album has been a long time coming and does not disappoint. It is filled with epic songs with choruses that will surely fill stadiums one day. Until then, lets fill the Boileroom!

This gig is their album launch and they hope you will be there to celebrate with them!

With special guests:

Fainites from Portsmouth the band create anthemic, intelligent, hardcore-tinged alternative rock. Debut EP ‘Battle Scars’ was released back in April and lead track ‘Geraldine’ is a storming piece of alternative rock, welding chunky guitar riffs to yearning vocals and pounding drums.

Andy Ruddy is a singer-songwriter originally from Bradford, now based in Guildford. Expect haunting moving tunes.

Dead State are an intense band based in Aldershot. Loud, shouty, punky, always unpredictable and in your face.

Soeur are from Bristol and they breakdown hard-rock down to its simplest, most fundamental form and are a brutal, yet soulful assault on the senses.
