ESCAPE 1942, Left Engine and The Waterfront - all from around these parts - are joined by Middlesbrough upbeat band Jonny Foreigner to make up what sounds like a pretty decent line-up at Hitchin's Club 85 on Sunday.
Kicking off the Family Show event, dubbed by the organisers as the 'Gig of the Summer 2006', are Stevenage's own Escape 1942 who will treat you to melodic and sometimes ambient songs.
Herts/Cambs/Essex four piece Left Engine have made a name for themselves in recent months and have a pretty decent Hitchin following.
Fresh from two packed performances at this year's Rhythms of the World, the Engine will speed things up a bit with their brand of punchy, funky, punky music.

The band will also be giving away free promo CDs of their latest recording to the first 30 people through the door.
Jonny Foreigner, renowned for their explosive live performances fusing influences of punk rock and melodic post hard-core riffs, are in Hitchin as part of a national tour. It's a great chance to catch the Teesiders' rollicking set.

According to their myspace site, the boys "thrive on the opportunity to explore where their music may take them. This, in particular, throws light on their musical confidence and how they continually refuse to accept by going beyond any simplistic genre classifications." Sounds like a good night out to me.
When all three bands have finished and you're busy sleeving the sweat from your forehead, The Waterfront will sneak on stage and finish off the evening with party music for kids. Expect hard hitting guitars, keyboard and impassioned dual vocals.
Doors open for this one at 7.30pm and the first band starts at 8pm. Tickets are £4.
