BOTB 2014 - Beacon Fire earn place in the final.
Heat 2 of Okehampton Battle of the Bands gave us another night of brilliant live music. We had big riffs, sublime lead guitar work, out of control stage shenanigans and an Orangutan! A great night.
BIG congratulations this week go to Beacon Fire who have earned a place in the final. They will be joining LGM One in the Party in the Park on the 2nd of August.
So, kick starting heat 2 was Orangutan Wheelbarrow and their mascot from Tavistock. Straight down to business with a Foo Fighters cover performed with gusto.
Southern Storm from Plymouth were on next. These guys brought some massive riffs along today.
BOTB regulars Western Approach turned up the volume and craziness. Their Rage Against The Machine finale and stage antics had everyone going a bit mental!
Then to finish off the night we had Beacon Fire. A bit gentler than the previous bands antics but none the less it was an excellent set, atmospheric and mesmerising.
Both Beacon Fire and LGM One have earned their place in the final, now we just need to see who's joining them from Heat 3 on Wednesday the 9th July, same place, same time.
