Plugging in for the UBC final

THE second annual Ultimate Band Contest will make a big noise on Saturday night.

The Marshall Amplification event came up trumps last year, and Sons of Icarus, right, walked away with the title and a twelve month endorsement from the amp company.

The finalists this time are Weak of Wanting, 4th Wall, Spectrum, The Royal Cartel and Vault of Eagles.

Sons of Icarus will also play a special set at the big bash.

Some pretty darn meaty prizes are up for grabs too – a slot at Download 2012, a studio session with Metropolis, Marshall gear, Smokehead whisky & VIP tickets at SECC and a Natal Snare drum.

Tickets are a fiver and doors open at 7pm.

The UBC is open to over 12s only, and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Speed freaks alert: The Marshall MPM Nitro Funny Car (capable of doing ridiculously fast speeds) will be on display on the night.

Now get your own va-va-room on and check the talent on parade.
