Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes bought their highly successful version of alternative punk to the Wedgewood Rooms as part of their sold out UK tour.

Opening the bill were Blackpool alt stoner rockers, Strange Bones. Their big riffs and hyperactive frontman were a perfect fit for an opening band in an intimate venue such as the Wedgewood Rooms. While sometimes the climbing into and walking amongst the crowd didn’t cause the sort excitement that some bands might, the sheer energy of their set started the night brilliantly.

Main support came from Brighton based alternative rock band Yonaka. A unique band who seem to blend 90s style riff based alt rock with a female almost popstar esque frontwoman. Whilst in some aspects they are comparable to No Doubt, there is something unashamedly British about them. The crowd were at first a bit perplexed at the music being played in front of them, however it didn’t take long for them to become engrossed in the music, particularly with the immense stage presence of frontwoman, Theresa Jarvis. This unique blend, is not quite perfected yet, but the sheer potential for this band was there for the crowd to see who showed their appreciation.
