A BURTON indie-rock band are looking to take the capital by storm this weekend as they headline a legendary venue.
Four-piece rockers The Vibe will be hitting the stage at Camden’s legendary barfly venue.
The show comes during another successful year for the band as their star continues to rise.
Frontman Max Kendall told the Mail he used to work at the Barfly making the gig particularly special.
“It’s going to be great,” he said. “It is the second time we’ve played there but the first time headlining.
“It went really well last time and we have a lot more people coming down on Saturday.
“It’s a great venue – a lot of big bands played there when they were younger so it has a bit of a legacy about it.
“The sound is always spot on and there is a great atmosphere.”
The band are no strangers to such renowned venues – they played Birmingham Flapper last month and have a show lined up at Coventry Kasbah in October.
Kendall said: “I don’t know how they have come about but we’ve managed to get some quite good venues.
“We are trying to be as efficient as possible so the gigs we do are as good as we can get and get as many people as we can to see us.”
Interest in the band has been growing after a triumphant appearance at Y Not Festival in 2012 and their single Wise Man received airplay from Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6 Music show.
“I think the next step is to try and get a following outside of the Midlands,” Kendall said.
“We are also starting to work on a collection of songs that will potentially be our debut album.”
