Calling all rockers of Preston. Don't go missing out on Xentrix! British thrash metal band of the 1980s hailing from right here in Preston, Lancashire. Xentrix's biggest show was at Wembley in 1991, when the band were hand-picked to open for metal legends Slayer. Although staying true to their roots and remaining a firmly 'underground' band, Xentrix have headlined their own shows to 5,000 strong audiences, and are currently working on hotly anticipated new material. Their 53 Degrees show represents something of a homecoming for the band, and promises to be a fantastic, rocking night. http://53degrees.net/listings/xentrix14.php
Who could forget that we have the one and only The Lancashire Hotpots coming back to 53 Degrees! Back on tour with their eighth album, the Hotpots are the ultimate party band for those wanting an unpretentious evening of music, comedy and fun. Whether it's serenading the female counter staff at the local off licence or singing about Shopmobility scooters the Hotpots are ready to raise the roof once more with a fun evening of musical merriment and good times. Find out more and grab your tickets here http://53degrees.net/listings/lancashire-hotpots14.php
