Might just be the best instrumental gig of the year. This happened and here is the proof.
Liverpool math/prog-rock quartet Kusanagi kick-started an epic night of instrumental mayhem at NewPath.
Their thundering guitar riffs warmed up the crowds nicely at Mello Mello at a night of alternative music, organised in conjunction with You Do The Math.
With a seemingly never-ending reserve of energy, Muto Leo thrashed on to the stage. Guitarist Scott Williams wished his sister a Happy Birthday and to the delight of the audience, the band performed a new song dedicated to her.
Wrexham band Gallops, who headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Reading Festival last year, wowed crowds with their Battles-esque performance.
For post-rock istrumentalists, MinionTV, it was their final gig of the year and they ended on a high, performing songs from their latest release, The Last Projectionist.
Headlining the night was Leicestershire five-piece Maybeshewill who stunned a packed audience with their powerful blend of atmospheric and electronic post-rock.
