This day is just packed to the brim with bands yet again, here’s a few recommendations:

  • Before the evening festivities begin, you might want to check out the show at the Bait Shop. It features Dinosaur Bones as well as The Russian Futurists.
  • If you can make it into the Indie Awards you’ll be in for a fantastic show featuring the likes of Hannah Georgas, Hollerado and Shad as well as Janelle Monae.
  • Follow up the awards with the afterparty which features a number of DJ sets as well as shows by Candy Coated Killahz and Bonjay.
  • The Comfort Zone show also looks promising, with bands as diverse as Catl, the masters of scuzzy blues-rock to Hands & Teeth to Japanese band The Zoobombs.
  • If you don’t feel like hopping from show to show you could literally hang out at the Horseshoe Tavern all afternoon and night. The Aussie BBQ features a huge lineup followed by the inaugural CHARTattack Showcase this time featuring Parlovr and Rah Rah.
  • Just for the sheer number of acts, the stripped-down show at the Library Bar looks great. One of the acts, Wool on Wolves, looks to have played about four shows before this one so they’re probably worth a listen.
  • Over at Rancho Relaxo there’s a huge variety of acts all playing at the same time. Urban Preachers will be playing some nice, laid-back music and if you’re still awake at 3 a.m. you can listen to the super-heavy rock from The Skirt Chasers.
  • Violent Kin will be playing at The Piston alongside ambient acts The TANUKI Project and Nottingham’s Spaceships Are Cool.
  • Once again, the Daytime Living Room Sessions are highly recommended, this time with appearances by Aidan Knight and The Wilderness of Manitoba.
