The Live Music Project: Sat 30 May

Saturday 30 May, doors 7.30pm
Suitable for 14+

After an amazing turnout for our second Birthday celebration the Live Music Project will be back at Trestle Arts Base on Saturday 30th May, with another cracking line up featuring some of the area’s best loved bands, if you haven’t visited us yet, there is no better time!

This month’s line up features The Metatrons  a Hitchen/St Albans based pop band, that formed in 2009. The Rhythm & Booze website describes them as ‘a four-piece female fronted blend of punk, new wave and fuzzy pop who delivered a fun, attitude filled set of infectious three minute belters…The band’s Stomping rhythms, buzzing guitars, big hooks and hollered vocals went down a treat…’ .  The band have played a number of very successful supports, showcase gigs and festivals sharing bills with such bands as The Primitives, The Subways, Buzzcocks, Nick Lowe, Imelda May, Glen Matlock, Earl Slick, Steve Cradock and many more and we are delighted to be welcoming them back to Trestle Arts Base.

The Antipoet*, Paul Eccentric and Ian Newman, are together the world’s finest exponents of beatrantin’ rhythm ‘n views! Having become enormously successful over the past five years, they now run their own nights in both London and the home counties. They have tirelessly toured the poetry, comedy and music circuits, and have appeared at countless festivals including, Glastonbury, Edinburgh, Brighton, Ledbury, Camden, Wenlock, Larmer Tree, Nostock, Blyth Power Ashes and Buxton. This will be their first outing on the Live Music Project stage after going down a storm at last month’s Acoustic Cafe Session.

‘The Antipoet is an act at the forefront of the new movement, with material dripping in parody. They take poetry to a new level, with performances as memorable as they are hilarious’ – The Stage

Hertfordshire based The Harry Phillips Band transform delicate acoustic guitar tracks into high energy Americana style anthems with blazing saxophones and deep bass lines. Tipped for big things by BBC Introducing 3CR and Alex Baker at Kerrang! Radio.

Sam Voltz is a fantastic singer/songwriter with plenty of intricate detail in the songs and playing. Captivating!

The Live Music Project is run by local music promoter/supporter and community champion, Denise Parsons.  If you are interested in volunteering for the event or would like to sign up to perform, please contact Denise at
