20.50 - 21.30 Transistor

Words are redundant for our favorite Transistor. The "Epsilon", "Living", "Follow me" heard on the radio and then after 3 times being support  band to James in Thessaloniki they grew their loyal audience even more. The Transistor will play tracks from debut album, "Things You Miss When You Blink" for which Dimitris Papaspyropoulos signs the production, and  they will present anything new, either it is a new version or a new piece -- www.myspace.com / transistorgreece

21.45 - 22.25 Rosebleed
After a good show as support to Carlos Santana, the band from Heliopolis releases in September their first album and comes from the great success of the EP, "Stories" and the single / video "Until Next Time". The Rosebleed are rightly among the "next big things" and I really hope to vindicate those of us who believe in them with their first album - www.myspace.com/rosebleed696

22.40 - 23.20 Cyanna
Their most recent album "Just A Crash" gave them yet another nomination in the category of Greek Act MTV European Music Awards 2008. Songs like "Shine", "Done Be", "Like Fire" and "TV Nation"  were loved by the music audience having a strong public presence in TV and radio. Moreover, the last year with  their live appearances in music halls and festivals, Cyanna stood out for their full energy on stage - www.cyanna.gr www.myspace.com / cyannamercury

23.35 - 00.45 Closer

Oldest band of the evening, after her career began officially in 1991. They were rightly identified as one of the bands that could be done successfully and abroad.
