The Rock-itt : September 2011
Punters were left in damp anticipation as the sound check was completed. You would think on a night like this things might get quiet...wrong! Once again it was a near capacity crowd. Once inside it was all systems go as ‘From the Sky’ turned up the heat - and the volum e. They were down a front man, but held it together for a solid set with a back up vocalist. Instrumentally tight, the crowd responded with enthusiasm. Finishing with a cover with a further ring in from their fans to sing, the set ended with the ferocity it started with. ‘Tenpenny Towers’ were a late inclusion to the show with the boys relishing the chance to play to an All Ages crowd. They pumped through a tight and technical set that went down well with the now thoroughly warmed up crowd. The energy levels were high and the appreciation from both band and crowd was ever present. Great set! Ever popular locals ‘My City Screams’ were back again - and always deliver. Tonight was no different as the boys pumped out their full of energy fusion of Dub/Techno/Scream o. These guys work it hard on stage and the crowd appreciated every minute. Keep it up boys. W elcome back anytime! ‘The Storm Picturesque’ travelled all the way from Newcastle, but there was no sign of weariness as the boys shredded through their sessions into bone crunching breakdowns and interludes of mind blowing rhythm technique. These guys are a highlight in their genre, blowing this reviewers mind in particular. There was anticipation through the room as local boys ‘Stories’ took to the stage - and boy did they turn up the heat.

The lads were tight, and as much as they struggled to fit all their gear on stage, they were definitely big crowd pleasers. ‘Sienna Skies’ led the charge on the bill, and they didn’t disappoint. One of the premier heavy bands in the Sydney scene, they combine killer cleans with brutal screams, crafty synth breaks and chanting interludes to get the crowd involved. The energy was electric and the crowd responded, singing along with every ounce of energy they had left after what was another huge night @ YOYO’s.
