Sonara @ Reading

Postby James » Thu Aug 14, 2003 10:18 am

Just to let everyone know that Sonara, the band Steve manages are playing the Reading Festival this ywar. They will be playing on the Carling Stage at 11:30am on Sunday 24th - please come down and check them out if you've not already heard/seen them, and if you have but you're not convinced - come see them play live and I'm sure you'll 'get' it after that!

P.S. If anyone wants to help distribute flyers promoting the band's set, please drop me a line: james@dumdums.com

Shall be there, partly to enjoy a thoroughly decent British rock band, and partly to watch the "Sonara Dance" that all member s of a Sonara crowd subconsciously do and made me laugh lots last time!

No sorry - they're the only unsigned band at Reading, so they're lucky to have got a slot - hopefully they'll be doing all the festivals this time next year!

It is a great opportunity, i'd love it. I hope it does okay for them...i remember Seachange were in the same situation two years ago and they never really got anything out of it. Seachange SUCK though.

i only caught the last song and a half coz i overslept, but they were really fantastic! i'd never heard any of their stuff before but really enjoyed what i did hear, and listening to other peoples reactions so did they! the tent was pretty full by the time i got there. definitely v impressed!

I was feeling so shite then cos I had just thrown up lots, so I didnt really listen. That and they arnt really my cup of tea. But I was watching the tent fill up, and the reactions of the audience. It was funny cos people were just sauntering in the arena and then heard a band, so they went there. And then they were like 'oooh, these people are good'. It ammused me.

I'd been planning on going but it was way too early for me... we only managed 2 bands on sunday! I went to find ali and people on sunday morning but you'd all gone to see them, so I went back to sleep.

i'd only ever heard a couple of their acoustic demos or something, so i didn't really know what they sounded like/knew what to expect. they impressed me though! and it was cool seeing the carling tent fill up so quickly.. fantastic publicity for an unsigned band! :)

even if they had played leeds we wouldn't have seen them. there was no way you could get into the arena, let alone the carling tent by 11.30! 1.30 maybe but not 11.30!
