The Arc in Stockton / Elliot Minor July 12th
« on: June 18, 2007, 06:16:27 pm »
Elliott Minor

Plus support from Shibby and Saving Grace

Thursday 12th July

8pm
£6
14+  
Box Office 01642 525199


Elliot Minor are a five-piece from York whose music is an explosive collision of Rock and Classical. Racing pianos, driving guitars, sweeping violins and crashing cymbals harmonize in a symphony of sound, evoking the stories and emotions of front man, Alex Davies.

The music is daring and unafraid and to draw comparison only pigeonholes the band's unique sound. The songs are arranged around Elliot, the band's piano, and they are rich with minor and dissonant chords, hence the name, Elliot Minor.

Having supported McFly at Newcastle Telewest and recently had a top 40 Hit, this group is most definately heading for big things so catch them whilst you can.

ARC Unsigned Thursday 21st June is proud to present

The Small Screen Light Show

Lovely riffs and unbelievably mature vocals from this band of impossibly young (average age 15) and talented Billingham upstarts. HENRY! from DARTZ! thinks they have what it takes which is good enough for us!
www.myspace.com/thesmallscreenlightshow

One Night Only

Replaced by King Eskimo

Nine Lives for Sky Dives Woo hoo!

www.myspace.com/nlfs

The new kids on the block of the thriving local metal-core scene, these lads know their Raging Engages from their Killswitch Speedhorns and they're not afraid to show it with their chugging riffs and guttural shrieks. A bit like the Deftones at their most agitated, this is the kind of thing that your mam would probably call 'heavy metal' - and she'd probably be right.

Plus DJ duties from Das Wanderlust untul 10.30pm.

www.thebighand.co.uk

Illuminatus
One of Britain’s best-kept secrets, a darkly political post-metal act who deal in emotive soundscapes and melody, where current trends call for ever more brutality and ignorance in underground music.

The Arc in Stockton / The King is dead. Long live the King...
« on: May 03, 2007, 06:23:18 pm »
From September, ARC Unsigned will be changing.

Can't give full details yet but we will be giving it a full revamp, going to once a month to make each event a bit more special and possibly changing the day from a Thursday.

I would love comments in this thread from regulars as to how you would like to see it change, suggestions for improvements etc. Keep it realistic though - we aint gonna be getting massive stadium fillers on in The Point.

Over to you...

Forever Falling - Unsigned favourites return

A Thousand Battles Lost have stepped in to replace Flood of Red

ARC Unsigned 5th April is proud to present as part of a national tour:

Patchwork Grace (Nottingham)
“…a sleazy, trashy neo-punk act with fat, junky riffs dirty basslines… they already have the talent to make one feel decidedly sordid by just watching them... Vocalist Tori Trash looks battered; stoned, pissed, whatever… her microphone lead wrapped around her neck grinning randomly at nothing in particular.... With such a captivating act and a selection of tracks as crisp and vibrant as Strange’s pink hair, it’s hard to imagine where Patchwork Grace could go wrong. This will not be their only performance on the Rock City main stage.” Left Lion Magazine- Danni Leivers
 www.myspace.com/pwg

Zen Motel Essex

Dirty sleazy garage rock 'n' roll with a twist of metal, cock rock,Psychobilly and death rock. They sound like LOADS of fun, check em out here....
www.myspace.com/zenmotel

Disarm (South Yorkshire)

Taking on board elements of punk, sleaze, rock and roll, Disarm have a modern rock sound that makes them stand out from other bands." - Sandman Magazine, January 06

"Devastatingly young, yet talented beyond belief, Disarm are four feral rock 'n' rollers like they just do not make them any more." - Riot Promotions www.myspace.com/disarmmusic

With DJ Josh Scullion (Hung Up @ Vienna)

Doors 7.30pm.

1st band 8pm. 10.30pm finish.
