BRIDGING THE GAP (article first published : 2001-04-6)

As an alternative to break-up day jorls heavy with alcohol, high school students are invited to head for Hillcrest High School tomorrow night (April 6). Six local bands will present Bridging the Gap, a concert that came from the idea of having numerous bands of different genres playing in a alcohol free area.

Performing will be Fruit Fly Navigators -having been around for a good couple of years and just released a new CD. Guitarist Adrian says "we're influenced by bands such as Primus, Tool and incubus...with a bit of Radiohead thrown in". Next up is Quzo a band known for their energetic performance and passionate performance. They take their lead from bands such as Pearl Jam.

Next up is Thirty-Three a funk/rock 3 piece influenced by The Red hot Chilli Peppers. Edenroc is another band that has been on the local circuit for a number of years have been relatively quiet for a while but are back with a new felt energy.

Crossingpoint is up next -influenced by bands such as snapcase, sick of it all and the drug free ethic of the straightedge. The singer Wesley concurs "The reason behind this gig was to play to a crowd who often don't get the chance to see these bands mainly because most of them play in bars which serve alcohol. We also wanted to promote our message and music to the youth showing them that there are better things to due then getting wasted on a Friday night".

Last and not least is Damaged Goods a young band based in the Hillcrest area who are influenced by bands such as Pantera, Groinchurn and Machine Head.

The show starts at 18h00 and the entrance fee is R15 at the shortlands avenue entrance. Refreshments will be on sale as well as Punk rock/Hardcore/metal records on sale including local and international bands.
