8:45pm Captain Meatshield – YouTube Gamer and Musician
Captain Meatshield is a one-man metal-covers project, with a strong passion for the geeky side of life.
A life-long love of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, gaming, and music has led to the formation of a YouTube channel dedicated to “Let’s Play” gaming content, and heavy, symphonic metal covers.
While the gaming side of things tends to stay at home, Captain Meatshield wants to bring the music out to the public, and with covers of popular gaming themes from Final Fantasy, Duke Nukem, and Undertale, along with film and TV themes from Thunderbirds, Star Trek and The Nightmare Before Christmas, There should be something to appeal to everyone’s tastes!

10pm DrakenWerks – Welsh Dark Electro / Industrial act
A Dark Electro / Industrial act from South Wales in the UK, DrakenWerks have risen to prominence in the last year. The brain child of promoter and DJ Draken, their last album, No Prisoners, went straight to number 2 in the German Alternative Charts and remained the maximum 8 weeks stay in the top 10 and their tracks have been tearing up dance floors and radio set lists since then.
They have also played across the UK, supporting acts such as Assemblage 23, Aesthetic Perfection, 3 Teeth, Youth Code, Mortiis, Clan of Xymox, Alien Vampires, V2A etc… and recently begun playing outside of the UK, starting with supporting Leaether Strip in Madrid, Spain, earlier this year.

7:45pm Catherine Elms – dark cabaret singer-songwriter & pianist
Catherine Elms is an unsigned singer/songwriter and pianist, whose music combines heavy rock, dark cabaret, emotionally-charged melodies and impassioned lyrics. A self-taught non-classical pianist, Catherine’s raw and evocative playing style lies directly between the brash power of PJ Harvey and the baroque pop-rock of 1990s Tori Amos. Her music possesses a dark intensity with softly defined edges: both introspective and spirited. Described as “dramatic” (Buzz Magazine), “adventurous” (The Flux), “fragile and fierce” (Off The Radar), and “haunting” (South Wales Evening Post), Catherine is a rising artist in the South Wales music scene driven ever forward by a growing loyal fanbase.
