Amber Run are coming to Southampton! The band, with a calm vibe and great soulful music have a gig coming up on the 14th of February. Not got a ticket yet? What are you waiting for? For only £12.50 the Valentines Day gig promises to be a good one.
If you are coming from Bournemouth, then the entire trip once you’ve gotten on the train or coach, should be brief and sweet. Once you reach Southampton, it’s smooth sailing, as the venue is only a short 10 minute walk away on West Quay Road between Ford and Honda. The gig starts at 7:30pm, so make all the necessary preperations to get there on time! If you are cycling to the gig from Bournemouth then you should leave with at least a two and-a-half hour margin. If you don’t believe me check google maps!
The band itself Amber Run, can be described as a popular Indie/alternative band, supported by a hefty YouTube following.
They formed in Nottingham a few years back, the members old friends; some of which met while they were still at Grammar School. From then on, it has been a great run for these guys, playing gigs in many major cities around the country and having by their 4th gig already checking off performances at the massive Reading and Leeds Music Festival – A feat few can lay claim to.
Their audience is usually comprised of young people. The venue itself – Engine Rooms –is famous for its live gigs and excellent spread of local and international music talent, but only allows for ages 14+ to attend. You can expect the audience demographic to be higher than this though, ranging more likely in the 17-21 spectrum.
The bands’ tour is taking them all over the country and many of the first cities they are going to have already sold out! Southampton is 5th on the bands touring list, so it may very well be the next to sell out.
One last notice; Felix, the bands’ drummer, really wants to crowd-surf. What do you say Southampton? Can we make this happen?
