The Kings head pub in Falmouth has been the venue for some high energy rock music in the last few weeks. Black Friday, a fast tempo folk band and Land of Giants a rock, ska band have both got the inconspicuous pub jumping and both rated the packed crowd 10 out of 10.
Black Friday who played at the venue on the 17th of February got everyone dancing to their upbeat Irish sound. Lead singer Tom O’Reilly said they play in Falmouth regularly “We play down here quite often really, once a month”. Tom went on to say that the night had been “Very busy, great fun” and the crowd had “been brilliant, 10 out of 10.”
Land of the Giants came two weeks later on the 2nd of March. Despite a slow start the crowd was literally jumping to touch the celling and dancing with the brass players who jumped into the packed dance floor. Lead guitarist Sam said that it had been “The best gig we’ve done in a while basically” and the drummer said “I’d give this 10 out of 10 … the crowd here were amazing tonight.”
If Falmouth starts building a reputation as a thriving, energetic town then more and more bands will want to come and perform, more well-known artists may venture down to the south west. Land of Giants said the night had been “Good fun, really good fun”. Even two of the Kings head’s bartenders were jumping at the front of the crowd, if there are more nights like that bands will surely want to come and perform.
You will be able to see Black Friday in Finn Mcouls, Falmouth on the 16th and Land of the Giants are playing in several festivals around the south west this summer including Bristol fest, Volksfest in Plymouth, Shambala and Super Cardiff party.
