Rugby is set to be rocked when two bands hit The Vault tonight (Thursday).

Local talent Henry Parker will support London act El Born during their joint debut.

Parker is described as one of most talented young artists on the roster of Rugby’s Big Help Management, and has been “spoken of in the same breath as Page, Clapton and Dylan” according to Total Guitar Magazine, having played in venues across the country.

Big Help describe his stage presence as “electric” with a musical style which nods to the guitar greats.

El Born, named after the bohemian district of Barcelona, are an alternative rock band whose music has been described as ‘pop songs with testosterone and an adrenalin rush’.

Recently having completed their debut album of 11 emotionally charged tracks with bittersweet, dark undertones, frontman Si Connelly and keyboardist Hils were thrilled by the ‘organic’ success of their debut single 1982.

A fan-made video for the track got 10,000 views in eight days. Soon after it got received 40,000 views. So they’ve made the track available on their own label, Kangaroo Zoo. It went down so well that Coldplay put it up on their website. At that point the video had about 200,000 views and the track was charting at 19 on iTunes. Connor Lang, of Big Help Management, said “This is a show destined to be talked about for years to come.” Admission costs £5 on the door and starts at 7pm.
