Tankus the Henge among a host of bands and DJs at the Planet of Sound showcase in The Plough Arts Centre tonight.

PLANET of Sound returns to The Plough Arts Centre in Torrington tonight (Friday) for its second show, set to be an evening of dancing and frivolity with an even more eclectic mix of bands and DJs that includes party-loving powerhouses Tankus the Henge.

With a summer of festivals under their belt, the London-based six-piece band is described as “uplifting and wild, dark and heartfelt” drawing visual and musical influences from old time fairgrounds through to Radiohead and never fail to get a crowd moving.

Charismatic front man, Jaz Delorean is described as “looking like a lost character from a Terry Gilliam film,” while the pump and grind of the Tankus the Henge sound generates a groove that makes it impossible to stand still.

The Planet of Sound night starts at 7.30pm and features a variety of bands and DJs, including The Magnus Puto Band, another crowd mover who are innovative and original.

Rhi Write Rebellion return for a second Planet of Sound show with a new name and a much developed sound. Knife edge guitar riffs, sun-ripe double bass lines, dirty drum fills and Rhiannon’s sultry vocals...

Also playing are Devon’s finest Ukulele extraordinaires the Glow Worms plus Jackdaws, taking a break from their usual sound to perform some equally energetic rockabilly.

Finishing off the evening are the General Rigory boys, some of Devon’s most excellent DJ’s. Expect electro, jungle, funk, soul and reggae.

Tickets �6 in advance from (01805) 624624 or �8 on the door.
