York-based rock band Elliot Minor are giving local bands the opportunity to support them on their September tour, which includes a performance at York’s Fibbers and Huddersfield’s Tokyo.
Bands who would like to be the opening act on the three-band bill need to register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, where further details will be sent to them via return email. Eligible bands must have a thirty-minute set.
The registered bands can then choose what show they want to play at, and their fans can vote for them to win. Successful bands that win the majority vote will be posted at www.elliotminor.com. Aside from the voting process, the latter website will also have links and pictures which will provide the chance to discover exciting new bands.
