A six hour marathon of up and coming bands held a young crowd captivated last weekend, Saturday 6th October, as, in its first year ever, the Bands by the Bay Festival showed the exciting extent and diversity of young Aussie talent.
Gold Coast band Hallows End exuded confidence with their hard-hitting metal performance. 23 year old singer, Brendan looked a born performer as he jumped around on stage alongside guitarist Matty, bassist Andrew and Scottie on drums. Despite just recently losing their second guitarist, the metal rockers didnít seem to lose any of their impact. Brendanís blended mix of melodic vocals and erratic screaming soared above intricate double kicks and thumping bass lines, their heavy sound demanding the unwavering attention of a hard-pleased crowd.
Hallows End have been playing together for nine months and have already built up an impressive list of experience having played at such prestigious Brisbane venues as Club 299, the Jubilee Hotel and the South Brisbane Clarence.
Drawing the largest crowd however was home-grown, alternative indie rockers, Blue Skies Fall. Their ties with the area embedded a ferocious loyalty among local crowds as they gathered around the stage to scream and cheer. Blue Skies Fall consisted of possibly some of the youngest performers on the day with vocalist Shayne Lockhart and bassist Reece Cameron both in their final year at Wynnum State High School. After meeting guitarists Chris Eades and Freddy Grande and drummer, Tom Barnes at the local subway, Blues Skies Fall was formed and for the past year the group have been regular performers at school events and proved a popular act at the Bay Wave Youth Festival earlier this year.
Their influences include everything from Taking Back Sunday to Avenge Sevenfold and their music can be heard www.myspace.com/blueskiesfall Check this space for future gigs.
Hallows End can be heard at www.myspace.com/hallowsendmetal and will be performing at Bribie Islandís Outloud Festival on October 27th and Fat Louieís 10th November. Their self-titled E.P will soon be available at future gigs.
Other bands included Cardboard Castle, No Pain No Gain, Highway Blonde, Take 21, and Sonic Porno.

Spoken Motif came on first at about 9 and played a 20 minute set of powerful rock with a rather animated singer and guitarist playing some great leads. Semi-altered Grin came on after about 30 min of Insurge - Power to the Poison People CD filling to gap. Semi-altered Grin played a hard set with a Nirvana type brooding stage presents.
