Devizes Festival 2013’s BIG prize pig show, NEW MODEL ARMY has SOLD OUT.
Tickets have sold consistently strong since release in May, with an unprecedented level of feedback having been headed my way, ever since the shows announcement.
The full 400 tickets have now been sold, meaning not only do we have a class act in town, but also a class audience, with people from all over the country making the trip. This show is extra special as former bassist Moose Harris, a born and bred Devizes lad, cancelled holidays plans to be at the gig.
After 3 or 4 years of begging the festival to revert to on line ticket sales, and the appointment of chairman and kindred spirit in Ian Hopkins, I feel very much vindicated by the use of WeGotTickets and the effect it’s had on this years attendances at events.
Not only that, but I have the pleasure of announcing that young Devizes metal band ORCRYST, have won the £200 studio voucher to record their first proper demo, after appearing and impressing at the Devizes Showcase.
Recording will be carried out in mid-August, with new local producer Gareth Nicholas (Garethnicholas.org). Gareth recently relocated to Wiltshire from Leicester after studying recording and production at university and has recorded a number of Sheer shows, of which you can hear the results below.
Full details over the EP are yet to be revealed – since we don’t know them our selves!
