  6. Congratulations to GypsyRoots who triumphed in this year’s Eruption Final. A massive thanks to all the bands that took part over the course of the past 9 months, demonstrating that the ‘deen has a vibrant and diverse grassroots music scene. You’ve been amazing! We at Krakatoa would especially like to thank Captain Toms, Kenny's Music, and the Evening Express for sponsoring Eruption again, helping make the contest a reality. Let’s do it all again this year!
  7. sadly, they haven't played a gig for us in the past year. it's always bands who've played that get the nod.
  8. WHAT? The Fudge Music Awards: an irreverent local awards ceremony for bands from Aberdeen - like a shit Oscars crossed with the drunkest gig you've ever been to... better hit the sambuca - hard. WHO? Prog metal titans Orynthia headline, with double-bass punk-rockers The Numbskulls warming up for festival dates, and acoustic punk types Green Beers set to open the show. In between the bands, Bri Fudge hosts a shambolic and unrehearsed awards ceremony, with comedian Vincent Frazer-Price briefly interviewing the winning bands onstage as they collect their trophies. They will both do their best to be heard above all the cat-calling and heckling. You can also expect a podium made of cardboard boxes and tinfoil. WHERE?

  15. Here follows a short interview with FaR, winners of last years ERUPTION Battle-Of-The-Bands competition at Krakatoa, ahead of this year's GRAND FINAL on Friday night. What were your expectations going into the Eruption heats in summer 2016? "There weren't really any expectations, other than the opportunity to perform, and gaining some extra motivation for us to push our live performance. Competitions weren't something we were actively seeking, but at the time we were looking to pick up some gigs. We always enjoyed playing at Krakatoa in the past, so we were just happy to be playing there again." How was the night of the Grand Final? "The night of the final was intense. All the bands were on point. As the night went on, it felt like there was no room for error to stand any chance. No pressure! But there was an electric energy from the crowd, and it was lovely to have such a good turn out and support for all the bands playing. Everyone was a great sport about it too, so it all really became about just having a great night and enjoying the gig." What did you do with the £2500 cash prize? "We spent a portion on equiptment that we needed, and merch, but we still have a lot of it saved towards some upcoming studio time." And what's the band been up to in the last year? "The band has since played a few festivals around Scotland - including sharing a main stage next to Primal Scream. We were keeping busy last year with gigs, but we've been taking time out recently to develop and work towards studio recording." So there you have it! This years Grand Final takes place on Friday night at Krakatoa, from 7pm. The four finalists are GypsyRoots, Casper Heyzeus, Killer Clyde and Deadloss Superstar.

Depending on availability, bands are welcome to enter multiple times, in order to better their score. Scores are not cumulative. The 16 bands with the highest scores will be entered into the semi-finals, which will be decided by knockout, with one band from each semi-final progressing into the grand final. Judging will be by a panel. We’ll endeavour to ensure that these panels are as independent and objective as possible. Points out of 10 will be awarded for: Material Performance Technical ability Audience engagement Professionalism ... to arrive at a potential maximum score of 50 per judge. Comprehensive backline will be provided to facilitate short intervals, but performers are welcome to take along their own amps, pedals, snares, etc, and drummers will be expected to use their own cymbals. All acts need to be in the venue by 6pm, to load-in, discuss technical set-ups with our engineer, and take part in a game of chance to allocate their stage slot. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - SPONSORS: Captain Toms - www.facebook.com/captaintomsaberdeen/ Kenny's Music - www.facebook.com/kennysmusicaberdeen/ Evening Express - www.facebook.com/EveningExpressAberdeen/ Krakatoa - www.facebook.com/volcanictiki/ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ERUPTION, GRAND FINAL @ KRAKATOA FRIDAY 9 FEBRUARY 2018. £5 door (£4 students).
