The Annual St Valentines Day Massacre
Inspired by the incredibly successful Southsea Christmas Covers Party the massacre invites local bands to open up their hearts by covering songs of love, lust and heartbreak. Choices range from the good, the bad and the ugly. Each band gets 15 minutes (roughly three songs). The window to impress is small so they have to make every guitar solo, falsetto and key change count in the hope of taking your breath away.
