Adore started off the event, a band formed in birmingham in 2011, who sound a LOT like Nirvana. It's not like they're' pretending that grunge isn't the main influence, from the name (A Smashing Pumpkins album) the 'Never Apologise, Never Explain' t shirt worn by the guitarist (a Therapy? album) it's obvious what has inspired Adore's sound. They deserve credit though, on any other night they'd have been one of the best bands on the bill. They played like a headliner, playing loud (REALLY LOUD) fast and with loads of energy. They got the night off to a suitably chaotic start.
