Music Performance students from South Downs College showcased their talent on Tuesday night for an end of college knees-up at the Cellars in Eastney. Four acts, all from the same course, played half hour sets to celebrate the end of the academic year.
First up was Joe Booley, a folky singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who played a pleasant acoustic set featuring songs from his recent Snapshot EP. Next were In The Atlantic, a four-piece with a loud punky set, executed with huge amounts of energy.
They were closely followed by The Cartels, who urged the crowd to stand up and celebrate as they played a cheery, dance-worthy set featuring an excellent cover of The White Stripes’ Fell In Love With A Girl.
Five-piece indie-folk band Malone headlined, playing their own brilliantly written sing-a-long songs that got the crowd dancing for the set’s entirety. They wrapped things up with the excellent Hilary, after chants for more from friends and fans.
