Despite the Beast from the East putting a halt to most of the country’s activities, The Kings in Falmouth refused to let some snow prevent them from providing entertainment for the public, even if that meant that their musicians might not have any equipment.
Milo Gore, an indie musician, was set to perform at the recently opened pub on Wednesday 28th February when the worst of the weather hit Falmouth.
Unfortunately, the conditions meant that Falmouth University had closed for three days meaning that Milo was unable to hire out the equipment needed for his performance.
Gore put out a desperate plea to all musicians in Falmouth, and luckily Rhys Harrison from Jagos Bar and Alex Smith from the local punk band Tinned Fruit came to the rescue and sourced the necessary equipment.
Thanks to the duo, the event went ahead and saw more than 80 people braving the cold to see the rising star perform. Gore even ran a live stream for his fans that couldn’t make it, reaching another 500 people.
“We are a collective,” said Gore.
“It was great to be able to demonstrate the strength of the music scene in Falmouth.”
The event showcased the Falmouth music community at its best. Although the University plays a vital role in providing equipment for music events around the town, when necessary there will always be people available to lend a hand.
Supporting Milo Gore on the night were psych-pop band Moreish Idols and acoustic singer-songwriter Slightly, who filled in at the last minute following a cancellation from another band that was overcome by the storm.
