KISS tickets... [Apr. 15th, 2010|07:35 pm]
Community for the good people of Pompey.

I am selling two KISS tickets (standing) for the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle show for Sunday May 2nd, 19:00pm. The reason I'm posting here is because I am based in the New Forest (was going to use the long weekend as a trip there) but can no longer go. The tickets cost me £94 all together, but I am willing to sell pair for £50. I can meet and exchange either in Portsmouth, Southampton, New Forest area/surrounding. If interested, please comment here or send me a message.

Guilfest Reviews & Photos [Jul. 23rd, 2009|06:47 pm]
Community for the good people of Pompey.

Hey Guys,

Its been just under two weeks since Karn8 played the Rocksound Cave at Guilfest and we thought this would be a good time to look back on the performance and let you in on some of the feedback and photographs we have received after the performance.

Guilfest Reviews
These are a couple of the reviews we have had in so far:

"It’s been a slow start at Guilfest on Friday so we’re more than ready for some dirty rock and roll and fortunately Karn8 are on hand to deliver the goods. This Hampshire based three piece centre around drums and guitar (courtesy of Leigh and Bones respectively) with singer Kirst providing the vocals and occasional additional guitar duties. The music is upbeat rock and roll leaning distinctly towards the garage end of the genre populated by the likes of MC5, although to bring it up to date they remind me of Juliette & The Licks. Kirst has some well practiced moves straight from the Debby Harry book of stage craft and she makes a compelling figure.

They mix up styles nicely with songs like ‘Old No.7’ dipping into smoke filled blues bars, whilst ‘Where the Fires Play’ rips it up like the Stooges at their most intense. The set isn’t without it’s problems however, the horrendous drone that plagued this tent last year threatens to return and it’s just not loud enough. The problem with this is firstly that it prevents Kirst’s voice from carrying too well and secondly that what should be bold slabs of rock and roll fall a little flat. That aside though it’s an assured and confident performance and they even pull off a passable version of The Doors' ‘Wild Child’. All in all it’s good stuff but they really need to be seen in a club venue with the volume cranked to the max."

Andrew Latham @ Room Thirteen

"Hampshire based trio Karn8 play a blistering set on the Rocksound stage. Front woman Kirst has a sultry and seductive vocal which draws you in only to be blown away by the heavy growl which hits the back of the tent, this really gives the band a depth and quality that many bands would like to have. They take in many styles of music and mix them up to create their own unique sound, which has certainly earned them an army of fans, many of which seem to be here to see them today as the tent is packed."

Resurgence goth night on 3rd May [Mar. 24th, 2009|07:36 pm]
Community for the good people of Pompey.

Resurgence, the semi-legendary Portsmouth goth night, will make its annual return on Sunday 3rd May 2009 to celebrate 12 years of playing goth at people.

Expect goth, ebm, industrial, more goth, and maybe a bit of "acceptable 80s".

8pm-12 midnight at Scandals, Hampshire Terrace, Southsea, Portsmouth, PO1 2QF. £3 entry.

It's the day before a bank holiday, so most people shouldn't have work the next morning.

There may also be cake!
