High Noon to Midnight, previously shot by Rocktographers when they were Band of the Month, headlined a show at Upstairs Cabaret, with Stinging Belle and Sweet Action opening.

The room was amazingly full, even for the first band, even for an early show, and only got sweatier and more crowded as the night progressed. It was really heartwarming to see this kind of support.

Sweet Action lived up to their name, with a hard rockin’, sweat flyin’, hair whippin’ performance which was both raw and tight.

Stinging Belle, still new-ish to the scene, debuted some new material and kept their performance level and stage presence on high.

And High Noon to Midnight delivered a funky, groovy rock show, particularly showing off sax player Dave’s solos as crowd-screaming moments.
