Falenizza Horsepower are a duo playing brutalist rock of great intensity. Dave Spars (vocals, guitar) is well known for his work with s-ro, giants of the Channel Islands punk scene, and Steve Hutchins (drums, vocals) is a force of creative progress in the Lebatol and Lawrence Draws Monsters projects. Together they tour the country and record inspirational works in their own studio. They are technically brilliant and musically uncompromising.

Their appearance at Havienda on Friday 22nd of August will be a night of astonishing performance. They will be joined by Planet Brain, a three-piece from the mountain town of Belluno, Italy. Described as ‘modern day melodic shoegazers’ the band have been building up their live reputation in both the UK and their native country. Their debut album Compromises & Carnivals, released on Function Records, has already sold out its original pressing in Italy. This will be their third visit to Jersey and the first of two Jersey gigs over the weekend. This will be the full electric set to be followed by an acoustic set in the Chapel at La Hougue Bie the following day.

Considering the quality of the acts lined up to play on this night we’re proud to be able to make this a free entry event. It will be one to remember for a long time.

Melting Pot DJs, Pip and Mark, will be supporting the bands. The entertainment starts at seven, with the first band on stage at eight.
