URN’s Summer Sessions
27th June 2013
URN Summer Sessions
It was a long term. Exams and revision took their toll; URN needed something to look forward to and with that the URN Summer Sessions were born. We searched high and low (with additional help from Facebook) to find budding artists from the University of Nottingham who wanted to get their music heard by more than just their housemates.
Emails were exchanged, bands were found and our excitement was on the rise. We held two sessions in the good ol’ trusty Mooch. The first one (Thurs 6th June) featured:
Alaskan Faction; normally a four-piece band, stripped back to a duo for very important acoustic-y reasons.
Philippa Jordan; a mellow sounding second year powerfully armed with her guitar.
Finally Van Armada; normally 4 of them as well, but 3 powered through with a slightly different set up to usual, drummer-less and swapping their electric guitars for acoustic.
Session number two (Tuesday 18th June) was graced by Scapegoat; our biggest band and only band who brought bongos!
Jack Osborne; an incredibly talented fresher, who had the crowd’s attention from the very first note.
Last, but not least, Bayeux (aka Samuel Jackson); also a fresher, giving us a great mix of original tracks contrasting to his take on some classics.
