The second heat of the Last Band Standing was last Thursday and what a night it was! As only three bands were playing, Longevity’s own Rawcuss played a set to warm up the crowd, and left them suitably warmed to a toasty, gig-prepared temperature so we extend our thanks to Rawcuss for playing and coming down! The first band of the Heat to play were The Farthingales who went on to win the heat, so well done those boys! Next to play were Bi:lingual with such a powerful set they blew us away and created Longevity history with our very first mosh pit! Last to play were the exciting young indie upstarts Florin, who played a fantastic set and were Runners Up of the Heat. Also, kudos to all of the Longevity team and especially to Joe for doing a great job being the presenter on the night.
Photography was done by Lee Crawford who as always has done a great job, joined by Elle Quinn, cutting her teeth with her own fine contributions.

The next heat will be on the 20th March at The Roadhouse again, if you didn’t make it to the first two, do yourself a favour and come down for the last heat and witness some fantastic noise, dancing and a fine beverage or several.
On the morning following Heat Two, our events staff Joe and Jamie dusted themselves down , drank some coffee took a trip down to BIMM Manchester to offer some feedback and generally have a chat. BIMM is a new Contemporary Music College, part of the BIMM group with an illustrious history created in a relatively short space of time. BIMM Manchester offers Degree and Diploma courses in Music Performance and Business. A great way to spend a Friday morning and we’ll come back anytime.
