Have your say

One of Portsmouth’s favourite bands, Blackfoot Circle are about to tour America. But, before they go, the group formerly known as The Rubicon are headlining a top night of music at the Wedgewood Rooms.

Tomorrow, they’ll be appearing at the Southsea venue alongside Casino, the band of Stereophonics’ new member Adam Zindani.

Also playing will be Burning Beaches, the new band from another Pompey music hero, Sam McCarthy.

His band, Gilkicker won the inaugural Guide Award for best band eight years ago.

Sam has recently signed to BDi records, become best friends with Harry Styles and Noel Fielding, and written songs with and for artists like Eliza Doolittle, One Direction and The Kooks.

Now, Burning Beaches play their first show at the Wedge tomorrow.

Also appearing will be Andy Muscat, singer-songwriter and frontman of mod band The Hype.

Tickets cost £8 on the door from 7.30pm or in advance from (023) 9286 3911.
